Kathleen Belew is a professor of history at the University of Chicago and the author of the new book Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America.
Belew explains white supremacy is a cultural, social and political problem rather than just the pathology of a relatively small number of people, what "white power" really means, and how white supremacist and other right-wing foot soldiers, activists, and enablers are engaging in and preparing for various forms of "race war" against their "enemies".
Professor Belew also locates the recent New Zealand neo-Nazi terrorist attacks in New Zealand are part of a much larger and older pattern of right-wing violence--which includes being early users of the Internet and "social media".
