I keep hearing this “they were afraid” line. I doubt fear was their motivation.
No. Maybe a couple of percent of people not in wheelchairs have white supremacist/nationalist…

Excellent commentary, Kady! I might want to clarify what I meant by “afraid.” In this context, I meant a long-term uneasiness about the influx and intrusion of multicultural groups into traditionally white-held areas stoking a fear that they are trying to replace the traditionally white economic and social spaces. I wasn’t speaking of an immediate, visceral fear but more of a discomfort, like unto one generation’s alienation from another.
