Why Don’t We Ever Call White Extremists Terrorists? (HBO) SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : Counting all the shootings and bombings, there have been at least 10 acts of terror carried out by White American men in 2018 alone. But for some reason, we don’t call these guys terrorists.
If we listen to the President, terrorism is a word exclusively reserved for Muslims and immigrants. Earlier this month, Trump was back on the stump with a similar refrain: “We will keep the criminals, drug dealers, terrorists the hell out of our country.” He even released a comprehensive strategy for fighting terrorism that’s mostly about the border and the Middle East.
However, if we look at the data, it turns out that Trump’s set his eyes on the wrong target. White men are responsible for 71% of extremist-related deaths in America over the last ten years. So if the President is truly going to fulfill his promise of protecting us from terror, he should really be protecting us from the men who look like him.
