These items are obviously aimed at children, such as the Nazi-themed Pepe the Frog fidget spinner and a child's bodysuit with a burning cross.The report also points to the fact that hate groups sell Kindle e-books and that streaming music from hate groups is available on Amazon's platform.

But for years, Amazon has been accusing it of not being fast enough to deal with these issues. Although corporate policy prohibits “promoting or beautifying hate, violence, race, sexual or religious intolerance or promoting the products of organizations with such views”, these controversies have continued in recent years. At a time when hate groups and racist violence are on the rise, Amazon’s failure to effectively prevent hate organizations from using their platforms to spread violent ideology is a dangerous situation.
