My father (long gone) was a member of the KKK. ( No costumes) He participated in the multi- day Cicero Riots ( before I was born) because a black family dared to move into an apartment in a white suburb of Chicago. It was the first riot that was televised. Thousands of white men showed with bats intent on physically removing the family and destroying the building. The Police observed and did nothing.

Some of the white rioters found it convenient to loot local stores.

Eventually, the Governor called in the national guard to end it.

My father hated obvious immigrants from anywhere and Jews, too. We could not eat products from all sorts of companies because the food was made by Nís. He pursued trouble.

I am grateful I grew up and witnessed this irrationality, first hand. I rejected it all and eventually him and his peers.

Yes. Also, check underneath your bed. There could be a white supremacist there.

They're entitled to their preferences.
I am a licensed broker and have come across sellers who made it clear they do not want to show or sell their home to Fill in the Blank people. It becomes an opportunity to educate regarding federal and state law. Some got it and some did not and we parted ways.

Lastly, I am aware of a few people I casually knew who use social media/ their own name to communicate hatred. This began with the Trump era. Apparently it has encouraged some to feel more comfortable going public.

Most people I come across are not remotely into white supremacy.

White supremacist, no.

Do I know white folks who believe white people should be the majority in this country? Absolutely. I think majority of the white people I know believe this way, and you know what? I understand why they feel this way and I don't have a problem with this kind of thinking. They treat me well and they treat everybody well, why should I view them as a problem?

I had a friend who had a major feud with her next door neighbor. When he learned she had terminal cancer, he'd guffaw about her being on "borrowed time". And she retorted to him that she was going to specify in her will that her Executors sell her house to a black or Hispanic. She didn't, but it did shut him up.
