A Conversation With Two Former White Supremacists And A Man Who Almost Shot Up His School
On this edition of Your Call, we'll speak with two former white supremacists and a man who says he would've been a school shooter if he had access to a gun.
We'll find out how white supremacy, nationalism, and isolation have influenced the recent mass shootings. We’ll also discuss the rise of anonymous platforms like 8chan, where the shooter shared his manifesto, and how similar online platforms incite racial hatred and violence. What will it take to stop mass shootings by young men?
