Trump’s Abhorrent Loyalists: It’s Getting Harder To Ignore

Trump's Abhorrent Loyalists: It’s Getting Harder To Ignore

In the wake of the events in Charlottesville– especially in the wake of the White House’s reluctance to name and blame those responsible and yesterday’s return to a defensive insistence on the equivalence of “both sides”– it has become much more difficult for Trump apologists to deny what has been obvious to many of us since well before the Presidential […]

It’s Time To Remove All Confederate Statues

Combating Nazis and white supremacists: It's Time To Remove All Confederate Statues

Following the Civil War, a smattering of statues memorializing the war and its traitorous lost cause appeared sporadically across the South funded mostly by those unwilling to admit defeat. By the early 1900’s though, the concept transformed as white supremacy took hold and the KKK began exerting political power across the nation. As a way of intimidating not only people […]

Charlottesville: Fox News Compares Confederate Flag to Rainbow Flag

Star Parker

Fox News guest Star Parker argued today that those decrying symbols like the Confederate battle flag are hypocrites because they defend the LGBTQ rainbow flag.

Donald Trump’s initial statements condemning the Nazi and white supremacist led actions in Charlottesville, Virginia should come as no surprise to those who followed his campaign closely last year.

Trump Effect: GOP Candidates Running on White Supremacist Platform

Corey Stewart & Sheri Few promote white supremacy and Confederacy support

Since his election in November, Donald Trump can claim one major national change over the course of his first 100 days in office: the normalization of specific types of hate speech. While the rise in hate crimes and hubris of neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups offers tangible proof of this change, the emergence of far-right mainstream white supremacist GOP political candidates demonstrates just […]

Trump, Le Pen and Racism

Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen

On “Last Week Tonight,” his brilliant take on the world we inhabit, John Oliver spent considerable time discussing the upcoming French elections. The entire segment is worth watching–it’s informative as well as hilarious (if depressing can be hilarious)–but one quote really struck home. “One of the frustrating things about watching this unfold from America, is this feels a little like […]
