A premise that relies on a rather questionable, unreliable number to support a conclusion that there "isn't a problem" is already on shaky grounds. And that's really the only premise there. By itself, it's hardly convincing.
Yes, I do think the number is quite likely bigger than that, but you're right: I'm not going to make one up--I'd be surprised if there was an accurate means of arriving at such a number. There are too many subjective factors that can't be accounted for in that calculus.
That isn't to say that quantitative data isn't relavant or doesn't have it's place in the discussion.
But I don't think it's sufficient on its own.
It is more nuanced and multifaceted.
But you'd never know listening to the shallow sound bytes on White Grievance Tonight.
So *ucker's conclusion that the "white supremacy problem" is a "hoax" and "conspiracy theory" doesn't remotely stand up on its own.

Can I name all of them. No. But David Duke was one of the most prominent as a LA state rep. In one of my previous posts in this thread there was a link that spoke about police officers in in california that were white supremacists.
There's probably a few names there.

Skinheads died out in the 90's.... but with the inspiration of Trump's rhetoric, I personally think it's just a matter of time till the scourge of the white (trash) supremacy movement is back in full force.

Your posts cause me to reflect upon how our education system has really failed us.
Advertisers are deserting Fox News’ primetime host Tucker Carlson, who called white supremacy “a hoax” in the wake of a mass shooting thought to be racially motivated.
"The whole thing is a lie,” Mr Carlson said live on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday. “It’s actually not a real problem in America … This is a hoax, just like the Russia hoax. It’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country.”
Mr Carlson’s comments came three days after a gunman suspected of writing a white supremacist manifesto referencing a “Hispanic invasion” opened fire in a Texas supermarket, killing 22 people, including eight Mexican citizens.
And, even as the president on Monday denounced white supremacy and hatred, residents of El Paso and terrorism experts have questioned the administration’s 2017 decision to cut funding for the Obama-era Countering Violent Extremism Programme, which allocated $10 million to fight the kinds of domestic extremism seen this past weekend, and other measures.

www.rawstory.com... -2018/ says all Domestic Terror arrests in 2018 were WHITE SUPREMACISTS.
But when I look at the photos on the 2018 report www.scribd.com... , some of them are NOT White.
Where is White Supremacist headquarters located? Who is the group's leader?
