White Supremacy Geste Main navigation Bottom Header VideoSocial Work, White Supremacy and Racial Justice Symposium - Part 1/Day 2 One of the purposes of listing characteristics of white supremacy culture is to point out how organizations which unconsciously use these characteristics as their norms and standards make it difficult, if not impossible, to open the door to other cultural norms and standards. 8/19/ · White supremacy today Today’s white supremacists are splintered into dozens of groups with similar ideologies. There is a lot of crossover between these groups, with Author: Carl Skutsch. 12/4/ · Executive Summary. Since the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) first formed in , white supremacist groups in the United States have propagated racism, hatred, and violence. Individuals belonging to these groups have been charged with a range of crimes, including civil rights violations, racketeering, solicitation to commit crimes of violence, firearms and explosives violations, and witness tampering.
Ku Klux Klan groups are the most common type of traditional white supremacist, but the movement also includes other groups, such as the Council of Conservative Citizens, the League of the South, and others.
White nationalism is a term that originated among white supremacists as a euphemism for white supremacy. Eventually, some white supremacists tried to distinguish it further by using it to refer to a form of white supremacy that emphasizes defining a country or region by white racial identity and which seeks to promote the interests of whites exclusively, typically at the expense of people of other backgrounds.
It is a commonly shouted at white supremacist events as a racist rallying cry. White supremacists often use the slogan, or variations thereof, to deny any racism on their part, claiming that they are merely exhibiting "white pride.
White separatism is a form of white supremacy that emphasizes the idea that white people should exist separately from all inferior, non-white races, whether by establishing an all-white community somewhere or removing non-whites from their midst.
White supremacy is a term used to characterize various belief systems central to which are one or more of the following key tenets: 1 whites should have dominance over people of other backgrounds, especially where they may co- exist; 2 whites should live by themselves in a whites-only society; 3 white people have their own "culture" that is superior to other cultures; 4 white people are genetically superior to other people.
As a full-fledged ideology, white supremacy is far more encompassing than simple racism or bigotry. White supremacist prison gangs constitute one of the main segments of the white supremacist movement in the United States.
Though most such gangs originate behind bars, today, white supremacist prison gangs are as active on the streets as in jails and prisons.
Members of such gangs tend to have a less sophisticated understanding of white supremacy and their ideology is usually of secondary importance to criminal behavior.
Of the five main white supremacist sub-movements, white supremacist prison gangs are the only groups to have exhibited undeniable growth in recent years, becoming an increasingly dangerous problem in many areas of the United States.
The first such gang to emerge was the Aryan Brotherhood, formed in the California state prison system in the s, eventually expanding to the Federal Bureau of Prisons system, too.
However, it was the emergence of a variety of similar gangs in other states beginning in the s often as state prison systems ended earlier practices of segregating prisoners by race that truly caused a movement to form.
By the s, some of these gangs had become active on the streets as well as behind bars. Today, a network of white supremacist prison gangs extends across much of the United States, fueled by the significant prison population as well as by the methamphetamine epidemic many of these gangs both deal in and use meth.
Not only are these gangs now common, but they have other characteristics that make them particularly worrisome. First, many of them are quite large in size.
The Aryan Circle, based in Texas, but with a growing presence in a variety of other states, has well over 1, members.
Their rival, the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, is even larger, with possibly over 2, members. In comparison, the largest neo-Nazi group in the United States, the National Socialist Movement, has only around members.
In most states, the average time a felon spends in prison is around two to three years, so many incarcerated members quickly return to the streets.
Some of these gangs now recruit on the streets as well. A third major characteristic of white supremacist prison gangs is that most of them engage in organized crime.
Indeed, that is the major preoccupation of many of them and ideological white supremacy usually takes a back seat—sometimes a distant back seat—to contraband, drugs, robberies, identity theft and other forms of traditional crime.
Many gang members are more crude racists than the fully formed extremists one would tend to see in a neo-Nazi group or a Klan group. Yet white supremacist prison gangs combine the criminal knowhow of organized crime with the ideological hatred of white supremacy and some individual members of such gangs are quite ideological.
Moreover, while the majority of the criminal activity, both in and out of prisons, continues to be traditional rather than hate-based crime, nevertheless a significant minority of hate-based crime does flow from these members of these groups, including assaults, arsons, and murders.
No matter what activity these gangs engage in, violence is almost sure to follow. White supremacist prison gangs are among the most violent extremist groups in the United States.
No extremist group—of whatever stripe—has committed more murders in recent years than the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas ABT. Anti-Defamation League records indicate that at least 32 murders have been committed by ABT members or associates since —and the true number is probably considerably higher, as many murders that occur behind prison walls do not get reported by the media.
The street presence of white supremacist prison gangs is enhanced by the growth of the Internet, especially social networking sites, which allow members of such gangs to interact and network with each other, even when scattered across a state or several states.
Through contraband cell phones smuggled into prisons, even some incarcerated gang members have their own social networking profiles; others may have profiles maintained by wives or girlfriends.
The Internet has also allowed prison gang members to reach out to and interact with other types of white supremacists, something that was not as common in pre-Internet days.
This in turn has helped lead to the increased politicization of some white supremacist gang members and the spreading of white supremacist ideas and beliefs further among gang membership.
The White Knights of America, a prison gang based in Texas and Arizona, now even has its own website, a site that, at first glance, looks identical to many neo-Nazi or other white supremacist sites.
Odinism is a fringe religious sect that takes its beliefs from the ancient Norse pagan religions of pre-Christian Europe.
This Norse revival, which basically dates back to the s, has grown considerably in the 21st century. Odinists have revived many of the spiritual practices of pre-Christian Nordic pagans and attempt to derive modern lessons from old texts such as the Edda.
However, for many white supremacists it is the symbology and iconography of Odinism that resonate more than specific theological points; for quite a few adherents, actual religious knowledge might be very shallow indeed.
It has become most popular among white supremacist inmates, both prison gang members and other incarcerated white supremacists, and it is among the prison population that the religion has spread the furthest.
There are, in addition, dedicated Odinist groups, but even most of these have either a connection to prison or have many members who are former inmates.
Odinism is growing and likely soon will be widespread enough to list as a separate white supremacist movement, just as Christian Identity is.
These tend to be individual white supremacist writers or publishers rather than group-oriented white supremacists; their main goal is to try to provide some sort of intellectual veneer or justification for white supremacist concepts.
These white supremacists often hold conferences that bring together various ideologues from Europe and America to attack multiculturalism, diversity, and non-white immigration.
Prominent white supremacists of this sort include Jared Taylor, publisher of American Renaissance, a former print magazine that is now Internet-based; Richard Spencer, head of the National Policy Institute; and Paul Gottfried, founder of the H.
Mencken Club. A number of prominent members of the American Freedom Party, a white supremacist group, could also fit into this category. A number of them have embraced Russian president Vladimir Putin and the hard-edged nationalism that he represents, as a model for Western Europe and North America.
White supremacists, particularly those in the organized portions of the white supremacist movement, engage in a wide variety of activities. These range from protests and demonstrations against things or people they dislike, to attempts to spread their messages and even recruit new adherents, to networking and social events.
In addition, white supremacists from both the organized and unorganized sections of the white supremacist movement may engage in criminal activity that can range from minor hate crimes to major plots or acts of terrorism, as well as a wide range of non-ideological criminal activity as well.
As a fringe movement deeply discontented with the status quo in the United States, white supremacists frequently mobilize—though typically only in small numbers—to protest things to which they are opposed, from specific events or government decisions to entire races or communities.
They may also hold events to commemorate things they hold dear, or to share ideas and concepts. A few recent examples of these sorts of activities illustrate some of the public events that white supremacists hold across the United States:.
In addition to public events, white supremacists frequently organize barbecues, parties, hate music concerts, and other social gatherings for themselves and like-minded people.
The following examples from recent months illustrate this type of activity:. Paris, Tennessee, April Members of the Supreme White Alliance, a racist skinhead group, held a cookout and cross-burning on private property for a handful of members.
Unfortunately, white supremacists do not always limit themselves to protests and barbecues, but instead choose to engage in criminal activity, often of the most violent sort, from hate crimes murders to acts of terrorism.
This report has already alluded to a number of such acts, including the attacks in Charleston, Overland Park, Oak Creek, and Austin, among others.
Sadly, those acts are hardly alone. White supremacists are the single greatest source of extremist-related violence in the United States, surpassing right-wing anti-government extremists, domestic Islamic extremists, and left-wing extremists and anarchists.
Indeed, one need only look at extremist-related murders to see how large the white supremacist movement looms in the landscape of extremist violence in the United States.
The Anti-Defamation League maintains a database of murders and killings that have some sort of extremist connection of any kind.
Although the data, which goes back decades, undercounts the true number of such killings, it represents a minimum figure that allows some basic quantification.
Preliminarily, ADL data for the past 10 years—from July through June —indicate at least murders occurred in the United States with some sort of extremist connection.
In other words, the vast majority of extremist-related murders in the United States are committed by people with ties to the white supremacist movement.
The data also reveal a surprising aspect of white supremacist violence. If one takes the killings related to white supremacy and analyzes them for the role that white supremacist ideology may have played in the killings, a surprising fact emerges.
Of the murders, only 63 were deaths in which white supremacist ideology played a primary or secondary role.
What does this figure tell us? First, that white supremacists can kill for many reasons, not just reasons related to their cause. Indeed, by the second half of the 20th century, the Christian Identity movement—which claimed that northwestern Europeans were directly descended from the biblical tribes of Israel and that the impending Armageddon will produce a final battle of whites against nonwhites—was the dominant religious viewpoint of white supremacists in the United States.
Nevertheless, white supremacists in the United States and throughout the world ultimately were unable to defend the laws that ensured white domination.
The last regimes to institutionalize doctrines of white supremacy through comprehensive legislation were Rhodesia , which changed its name to Zimbabwe after its white minority finally ceded power in , and South Africa , whose apartheid system was dismantled in the s.
Despite the demise of segregationist and discriminatory laws throughout the Western world and in Africa, white supremacy has survived as a populist doctrine.
Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI warned that white supremacist groups and right-wing militias in the country were winning new recruits by stoking fears of gun control and expanded welfare rolls and by exploiting resentment created by the economic recession that began in late Some observers of the movements, however, were skeptical of those claims.
