Alexander Hinton explains how murky politics, structural racism, the promotion of American exceptionalism, and a belief that the US has achieved a color-blind society have diverted attention from the deep roots of white supremacist violence in the US’s brutal past. Hinton details the warning signs of impending genocide and atrocity crimes and the shocking ways in which “us” versus “them” violence is supported by inherently racist institutions and policies. He’ll also discuss, with two of his students, the impact his popular teach-in had following the events of Charlottesville, by departing from a more traditional pattern of teaching and learning.
