White Nationalism’s Deep American Roots
White supremacy is a system that has been used to hold white dominance and superiority over minorities. White supremacy and white privilege has existed for centuries because many Americans believe in this ideology that one race is superior to others. Even though racism and white supremacy are no longer as apparent as they used to be, having Trump in presidency is resurrecting Grantism.

They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists” (Trump, 17). From that point forward Trump hasn’t quit campaigning on the reason that immigrants are a threat. Furthermore, behind the Tree of Life murders exist social forces with historical roots that should alarm everybody. Statistically the 11 deaths in Pittsburgh show that the anti-semitic incidents rose 57 percent, and that was only the first year of Trump’s presidency.
Madison Grant (1865-1937), an attorney and a zoologist with knowledge about wildlife and fascinated in the dangers of extinction, which soon became an objective for Madison to apply on humanity. Jews troubled Grant the most and it became to be known that Grant’s fear over the the Jews “ran wide and deep” (Serwer, 19). Grant’s work ...
