White supremacy is belief that white people are inherently superior to other races and should therefore dominate society. That was the guiding ideology in the creation of the American Colonies & the westward expansion of the USA. Hate groups & terrorism are simply an outgrowth 1/
Framing white supremacist terrorist acts simply as "hate crimes", divorced from a political ideology is a way of denying the existence of white supremacy as a mainstream ideology 2/2
White supremacy was the central issue of the US Civil War; southern states seceded not only because they wanted to maintain slavery, but also b/c they objected to the idea of Black Americans being granted citizenship in what should be a white nation
White supremacy is central issue in politics today. It's elephant in the room that's willfully ignored. But the uptick in racist violence &the spike in hate groups that followed election of Obama in '08 is entirely about white supremacy & folks afraid USA won't be majority white
