SOT, journalist (English): «Isn't it because those groups have been marginalised by the white majority?» SOT, Jason Kessler, Organiser of 'Unite the Right' rally (English): «2018 is not the Jim Crowe era.

Еще oppressed minority.» Jason Kessler, organiser of 'Unite the Right 2' rally, confronted journalists in a Washington DC metro on Sunday, saying white people should have their say in race-related debates. «2018 is not the Jim Crowe era. We're in a very different place and the conversation has got to start evolving to include white people as part of the conversation, because otherwise we're in danger of making white people an oppressed minority,» said Kessler. «We have civil rights advocates standing up for black people, or Muslims, or LGBT, whatever, you know. But there's nobody who could stand up for white people, because if you do that, they accuse you of being a racist or a white supremacist,» he added. The 'Unite the Right 2' protest, on Sunday, comes one year on from the far-right 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which a counter protester was killed. The 2017 Charlottesville 'Unite the Right' rally was marred after a Nazi Germany sympathizer, James Alex Fields Jr, drove a car into a crowd of counter-protesters killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring more than a dozen others. Fields was charged with second degree murder for Heyer's death along with 30 charges of hate crime. His trial is set to begin in November.
