When pop culture portrays white supremacists, they are stock characters, visibly terrible people who are oh-so-easy to identify in a crowd. White supremacists in television and film are so damn obvious in their racism. Their look dramatizes their white supremacist ideology. Their clothes and affect signal a style of belligerent racism that Americans are supposed to be over (though we so clearly aren’t).
“Loss kicks us in the teeth when we least expect it to. Grief sticks with us. It clings to us, even as we try to move on. I found myself craving coffee, so I had a cup.”
