Members of the Unite the Right rally at the August 2017 rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia.

White nationalism, white supremacy, American neo-Nazi, skinhead. Whatever the moniker, such groups promote a European-white led society and the marginalization of minorities and Jewish people. 

The movement as a whole came to the fore on August 12, 2017, when white nationalists and counter protesters clashed at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

That day, a 20-year-old Ohio man drove his car into a crowd of protesters, killing a woman and injuring 19 others. 

The young man was not affiliated with any particular group, but those who knew him in high school say that he had a hard time making friends and he wrote at least one class report along the party lines of the neo-Nazi movement.

Coming up, the process of radicalization with the white supremacists and how other have left the fold. We talk about the process of radicalization and how some are helping others de-radicalize.
