A NUMBER of commentators have linked the killing of 20 people at a Walmart store in El Paso in the United States of America last Saturday to the rising tide of White Supremacism. White Supremacism is a belief that whites are superior to others and therefore have a right to dominate them. There were elements of such thinking in a “manifesto” posted online allegedly written by the suspected killer, a 21 year old white from a Dallas suburb. The suspect had justified his massacre as a response “to the Hispanic invasion of Texas” and had made references to the Christchurch shootings in March where a white gunman killed 51 mosque worshippers.
