Filed Under ‘Water is Wet’: Uneducated, divorced losers are most likely to become white nationalists

There’s a recipe to becoming a white nationalist and the survey says that divorced white men are the “losers” who seem to gravitate toward being hostile, Raw Story reports.

According to a new study from the Institute for Family Studies, there are two common traits among white nationalists, one of them being “a divorced respondent was 1.78 times as likely to score high.”

Going through a divorce likely makes a white man feel hopeless and pretty much feel like a loser, said George Hawley, a professor of political science at the University of Alabama.

Hawley believes that white men feel powerless especially when they are unemployed. Couple that with going through a divorce, they become uniquely vulnerable to white nationalist messages which is a recipe for disaster that opens up an opportunity for them to use it as easy scapegoat to blame for their problems.

“There is not an obvious connection between being divorced and feelings about race,” he writes. “It is possible that the experience of divorce makes one feel more alienated and negative in general.”

So what’s the solution? Hawley said that encouraging strong marriage and discouraging divorce might be an effective counter to the rise of white nationalism. But he admits that becoming more educated would help deter the racist attitude too.

Charlottesville Anniversary

Virginia has been put under a state of emergency ahead of the one year anniversary of the deadly Charlottesville Unite the Right rally held by neo-Nazis’, ABC News reports.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared the state of emergency and asks that residents “make alternative plans to engaging with planned demonstrations of hate.”

“Virginia continues to mourn the three Virginians who lost their lives in the course of the demonstrations a year ago,” Northam said. “We hope the anniversary of those events passes peacefully.”

On August 12, hundreds of white nationalists gathered in Charlottesville for a Unite the Right rally. It was set up to protest the city’s plan to get rid of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
