Roland Martin Confronts White Nationalist Richard Spencer | News One

Roland Martin Confronts White Nationalist Richard Spencer | News One – Members of their movement have been energized and emboldened by the election of Donald Trump, who used racially insensitive rhetoric to catapult him to the highest office in the land. On Tuesday morning during an intense interview, Roland Martin – host of NewsOne Now – confronted Richard Spencer, the leader of the National Policy Institute, about his views on America, race, White supremacy, Trump’s election, and the bright future he envisions for White America. While discussing his views about the Alt-Right movement and its impact on America, Spencer said, “We’ve gone from being a movement that was not connected to the political mainstream, not connected to the political fray,” to a movement that people are paying attention to. Spencer seemed to backtrack from some of his movement’s more controversial stances, saying, “We need to maybe start knocking some of that stuff off” and move towards the mainstream. One of the major issues that has caused many of the Alt-Right’s members to espouse hate and bigotry towards minorities in America revolves around the loss of economic power and jobs. Martin asked Spencer: “If Whites are dominating jobs in banking, if Whites are dominating jobs on Wall Street, If Whites are dominating hedge funds, if Whites are dominating [as] NFL owners and NBA owners, if Whites are dominating in the major sectors – how in the world can you somehow say, ‘Oh, my god. It’s rough for us White people out here?’”
