There Is No ‘Surge’ in White Supremacy
The greater disease afflicting America is the institutional decay in thousands of small towns across the country. Millions of white Americans have been failed by their political leaders, faith leaders, community leaders, business leaders, and union leaders. No one spoke for them when their local industries were bought off to relocate to major cities or other countries; when allies and foes alike benefited from unfair trade agreements; when China and Mexico were dumping lethal drugs into their schools; when a blind eye was turned toward rising illegal immigration that undercut wages and job opportunities. There's now only one leader who is speaking for them, and that is Donald Trump.
