Molly Knefel // The True Face of White Supremacy
Video Dispatch | ep29 | Aug 17, 2017
Molly Knefel challenges a widely accepted falsehood that Donald Trump was elected by poor and lower middle-class white people lacking education, and that those are the people responsible for spreading racist and hateful rhetoric. She explains that the effort to shift this blame comes from a desire to disassociate from racism and to shirk the responsibility that comes from recognizing and acknowledging it.

Molly and John Knefel are hosts of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch.

Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
