Add to Calendar 2022-02-04 12:00:00 2022-02-04 13:00:00 Why aren’t Americans more alarmed by white-supremacist violence? The Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection demonstrates the threat that white supremacist violence poses to American democracy. But a surprising number of Americans appear to remain unconcerned. Our research indicates that those who oppose immigration are less concerned about the terrorist threat posed by white supremacists, among several other significant relationships. Join us for a discussion of American attitudes toward white supremacy, the threat it poses to representative government, and what we can do about it. Join us in this discussion on February 4 from 12-1 p.m. Leading this discussion will be Mershon Director Christopher Gelpi and doctoral candidate of political science Victoria Gurevich, who co-authored this article in the Washington Post's Monkey Cage blog, which will be discussed and is encouraged to be read ahead of the event.
