As the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville, Va., Unite the Right rally approaches, many still cannot wrap their minds around the hundreds if not thousands of white supremacist sympathizers who descended on a bucolic college town and wrecked violent havoc—one anti-racism protester was killed, dozens more were…
The Washington D.C. chapter of Black Lives Matter is planning to counter protest the
stupidly-named “White Civil Rights Rally” scheduled to be held near the White House at Lafayette Park on Aug. 12, which is also the anniversary of the deadly white supremacist rally that was held in Charlottesville, Va.
Everyone recalls that disaster of a Unite the Right march in Charlottesville, Va., last year, when a raging white supremacist used the tried-and-true terror tactic of driving a moving vehicle into a crowd of people, throwing one person up into the air and eventually killing another.
I think one of the scariest parts of exposed racists is that they tend to have critical positions in society, like firefighter or middle school teacher or, I don’t know, police officer—you know, jobs where their judgment may have serious consequences for the black people with whom they may come in contact.
A little more than four months has passed since Charlottesville, Va., native Heather Heyer was killed after a car plowed through a group of people protesting a horrific, and ultimately deadly, white supremacist rally there.
You may not know Marcus Martin, but chances are, you’ve seen him.

The Springfield, Mass., Police Department fired one of their officers, Conrad Lariviere, for comments he made in the aftermath of the deadly Charlottesville, Va., white supremacist rally that killed one person and injured 19 others.
It’s easy to dismiss “fringe” media like Alex Jones or Breitbart News or other decidedly racist, anti-Semitic or “alt-right” blogs as the rantings of kooks and those outside the mainstream, except we now have a man in the White House who exploited and stoked the fires of these outlets all the way there.
When will the troglodytes learn to keep their shitty comments offline? Will they all lose their jobs before this is over? Only time will tell. But, for now, one Arizona man is facing the music after making a vile Facebook post about driving his vehicle through people looking to protest President Donald Trump’s rally…
The city of Charlottesville, Va., is planning to cover the statues of Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson in black fabric to represent the city’s mourning of Heather Heyer.
Black people are paranoid, because being black in America can feel like having a bull’s-eye on your back. That, and Tuskegee, COINTELPRO, segregation, gentrification, piss-poor education, mass incarceration—all of the “shuns.”
Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed while protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., told Good Morning America that she has no interest in speaking to President Donald Trump since Trump’s comments comparing anti-racism activists to the Ku Klux Klan and the like.
In a press conference during which Donald Trump shed any pretense of being anything other than a white supremacist demagogue deploying his power in the service of fascism, hate-mongering and violence wrought from the desperate need whiteness has to preserve itself, he said this:
The only difference between Heather Heyer and Deandre Harris is that Deandre Harris is alive. They were both in Charlottesville, Va., protesting against white supremacy. They were both victims of white supremacist terrorist attacks.
Wow. I guess a hit dog will holler. When I wrote this on Sunday regarding the gaggle of white people online who turned the carnage of Charlottesville, Va., into a contest to prove they’re not terrible, I was surprised that so many white people would interpret this to mean I was talking about all white people. Or all…
It’s too little a little too late, but y’all’s president finally managed to take some time from golfing and tweeting about everything but Charlottesville, Va., to explicitly denounce white supremacists.

GoDaddy no longer wants to host the Daily Stormer on its servers. The known white supremacist site angered the hosting company after it posted a defamatory post mocking the death and appearance of Heather Heyer, the woman killed at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday.
