How The Far Right Threatens Racial Justice In America



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Tarso Ramos.

The Washington Post this week conducted an analysis of who engaged in property damage during the nationwide police protests after George Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis and concluded that people identifying themselves as “antifa” were not involved in spite of President Trump’s constant claims to the contrary.

Instead, the paper reported, “Four people who identify with the far-right extremist “boogaloo” movement are among those facing the most serious federal charges.” The findings were consistent with a new report by Political Research Associates called Mapping ParamiTlitary and Far-Right Threats to Racial Justice.

Read the report HERE. Tips about far right groups can be emailed to tips@politicalresearch.org.

Tarso Ramos, Executive Director of Political Research Associates, has produced investigative research and analysis on the U.S. Right to support social justice advocates and defend human rights.
