It’s happening in Oklahoma, but it’s not O.K. President Trump is bringing back his live campaign rallies. For your own sanity, I’d ignore the content. But don’t ignore the location or the date. The rally will take place on June 19, the day African Americans celebrate the end of slavery. And it will take place in Tulsa, the site of one of the worst massacres of Black people in US history. To you it may seem like a stretch to pull these two elements together into a unified message. But like so many dog whistles and direct statements in the past, white supremacists hear it loud and clear.

+ I guarantee Daniel Lombroso sees the connection. While working on his upcoming documentary, he spent four years embedded with the alt right. He learned about the seductive power of hate. “White nationalists aren’t dumb, or poor. They’re scared of losing power. By 2045, white Americans will become a minority in the United States. This demographic change isn’t a conspiracy—what those in the alt-right call “white genocide”—but a choice. Millions have decided that they want an inclusive society with equality and justice for everyone. As protesters march to fight structural racism against African Americans, it is clear how much work is left to be done. To defeat hate movements as widespread and damaging as white nationalism, we must understand why people are drawn to them in the first place, and what they’re willing to give up in order to belong.”

+ A related personal note: Guys, I really need to talk to you about something. It’s been weighing on my mind for a while. I’m probably just being hysterical. But it keeps nagging at me. I can’t let it go. I think my 96 year-old dad might be part of Antifa.
