White Supremacist Violence – An Origins Top ten

There are an estimated 917 hate groups currently active in the U.S.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s failure to immediately condemn the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis following the events in Charlottesville, VA by condemning violence “on both sides,” he repeated a long history of blaming others for acts of terror perpetrated by white supremacists. To put Charlottesville in context, in this video we'll review the history of white supremacist violence in the United States.
