Social 20: Summer Events Analysis

This summer, a large issue unfolded in the United States and migrated North to Canada: a swell of white nationalism washed over the country, using proxies such as protesting the fall of Confederate statues to advance their agenda.

Make no mistake: individuals chanting “the Jews will not replace us” while waving the Nazi standard is not a protest over a monument.

Your task is to read a selection of articles pertaining to the rising tide of white nationalism in the United States and analyze its impact. You will focus in on the events at Charlottesville–the Tiki Torch March–and the context around it. Create a one page summary-analysis with your findings.

This will be an introduction to the many ways in which people feel national pride. Through the rest of the week we will be looking at other elements.
