A lot of racist alt-right members seem to think they’re not racist. A new survey shows otherwise. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join
“The white supremacists marching in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend were not ashamed when they shouted, “Jews will not replace us.” They were not ashamed to wear Nazi symbols, to carry torches, to harass and beat counterprotesters. They wanted their beliefs on display.
It’s easy to treat people like them as straw men: one-dimensional, backward beings fueled by hatred and ignorance. But if we want to prevent the spread of extremist, supremacist views, we need to understand how these views form and why they stick in the minds of some people.
