Linda Tropp, PEP Steering Committee Member, is featured in US News & World Report in an article on the rise of hate speech and hate crimes in the Trump era. While bias-related hostilities have increased since the election, Tropp notes that it's important to acknowledge the difference between white supremacy and the anxieties that whites may feel in response to shifting demographics and movements like Black Lives Matter. It's a separate dynamic, she says, than white supremacy – the notion that white people are somehow better or more entitled than people of other races and ethnicities. It's more a sense of anxiety over where they fit in, in a rapidly-changing world. "The problem, as I see is, is that those fears are stoked or exploited by a white supremacist agenda," Tropp adds.
