Beyond Charlottesville: The Omnipresence Of White Supremacy In America

By Willie Dwayne Francois III,

On August 11th and 12th, we witnessed a pageantry of White nationalism and experienced national grief as Charlottesville, VA became a scene cropped out of the 1950s. Abandoning their white hoods as seeming relics of a former species of White hate, White folk carrying torches paraded toward and surrounded a monument of Robert E. Lee, a vestige of southern historical misremembering. (It is stupefying how White nationalists espouse Confederate nostalgia and venerate an anti-American insurrection, yet call it American patriotism.) President Donald J. Trump condemned “violence on both sides” as a tactic of evading the necessary ideological and social distancing from the Alt-Right—the most outspoken pedestrian proponents of his leadership. Charlottesville offers America another opportunity to pull back the curtain on the insidious culture, economic incentive, political utility and historical continuity of racism still alive in America.
