SPLC to Congress: Myth of 'white genocide' driving white nationalist terror attacks

From the article:

The SPLC’s Lecia Brooks testified today before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (Committee on Oversight and Reform) about the need for federal action to confront the deadly white nationalist movement. Brooks delivered the following oral remarks to the subcommittee chaired by U.S. Rep. Jamie Raskin, in addition to written testimony.

Thank you, Rep. Raskin, for inviting the Southern Poverty Law Center to participate in today’s hearing.

In our country today, there is without question an escalating crisis of hate-related violence. There are no longer isolated incidents. There are no lone wolves. We are well past the point of cautionary tales. Each senseless act after senseless act is intertwined and connected by bigotry’s sinew, woven by a callous disregard for human life.

Trump, for all of his brutal and open racism, is only one example of the racism that was built into the foundation of this country.

A toxic blend of predatory capitalism and racism is used to divide workers.

2. The SPLC does such great work.

They are an excellent resource when dealing with racists and supremacists.

3. Great read.

I have posted about an America that no longer has a white majority. Census has been tipping and the clock is ticking. Tic Toc. There are a lot of snow flakes out there living in fear.

Perhaps their biggest fear that when the flip happens perhaps the majority that will become the minority lives in fear that the new majority will treat the new minority in kind. Umhmm. They are fugging terrified of retaliation of centuries of abuse.

Tic Toc.

4. Very well analyzed, and very well said.

And to stop this, the GOP is willing to suppress votes, prevent non-whites from voting, and conspire with a hostile foreign power.

5. Thank and you are correct.

They will try all of that and more.

As I said I have posted about the fact that the census says turns about 2045 to a non white majority. Not that far in the future. On one post I said I would be happy that white is no longer in the majority and would love to see our diverse nation to become a majority of color. I was accused of preaching white genocide.

Fact is, I was not. Fact is, I am white.
