    This weekend, white supremacists swarmed Charlottesville, Virginia, for a “Unite the Right” rally, a response to a proposal to remove a local statue of Confederate leader Robert E. Lee. The white supremacists used violence against anti-racists protesters, killing one woman, Heather Heyer, and injuring at least 34 others. It’s horrifying, and it’s evidence of the growth of the white supremacist movement in the United States. BUST’s “digital team” is one white woman (hi) working part time with a few interns helping out, and my voice...

Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s slimy son, created a media shitstorm after calling his father’s critics “not even people” on Fox News’s Hannity last night. Regarding the President’s detractors, he declared, “I’ve never seen hatred like this. And to me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have just flown out the window, and we deserve so much better than this as a country.” Eric Trump’s ability to dehumanize those that are different than him is a tactic that President Trump...
