On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss last Friday's massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, and white supremacy around the globe. The alleged shooter, an avowed white nationalist from Australia, killed at least 50 children and adults.

In his 74-page manifesto, he praised Donald Trump as a “symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.” He also reference the 2nd amendment in the US. What can be done about the rise of white, right-wing extremism around the globe?
