In a piece written last spring, author Tom Cahill makes it absolutely clear that, "white terrorists have killed more Americans on U.S. soil than Muslim terrorists since the 9/11 attacks."
Not only that, but "attacks by white terrorists are also twice as frequent, with 18 homegrown terror attacks between 2004 and 2015, and just 9 terror attacks rooted in Islamic extremist ideology."
Yes Donald Trump is normalizing hate as he continues to gain support in the US, but for those who are interested in peace and justice, the truth is what goes down in Chicago everyday is not reported in the mainstream media. I wonder how many innocent people in Yemen, Afghanistan, and Iraq (and elsewhere) have REALLY been killed under orders from the current president?
Take a read below, check out the comments, and think about it. White privilege is real, and continues to wield power in the US. Just look at white nationalist David Duke running for the senate in Louisiana and his support for the GOP and Trump.
"We" must understand that power has rippled across the social fabric of the US in such a way that race, culture, ethnicity, religion, spirituality, gender identity, sexual identity, class, physical ability, and age have all been used as tools to dominate. Don't buy into the rhetoric, educate yourself from every angle and the truth will be there; in solidarity!
