APNews.com: Prof. Tanya Hernandez Comments on Rise of Latinos in White Supremacy Movement


Professor Tanya K. Hernàndez explains why Latinos who feel othered could be susceptible to supporting a white supremacist hate group.

Tanya Hernández, a law professor at Fordham University and author of “Racial Innocence: Unmasking Latino Anti-Black Bias,” said Latinos are often viewed “as an unwanted other” in the U.S.

“If you are a Latino who is already affected by being viewed as other and want desperately to be part of the club that is the U.S., what better way to make a claim … than to be part of the enforcement, the policing of whiteness within a white supremacist hate group?” she said.
