Ways white nationalists promote their ideas
White nationalists use many different media and channels to distribute their ideas, attract interest, identify potential recruits, and engage young people in conversation. Increasingly, the first contact happens online. Some websites are known hubs for white nationalists; others are ordinary sites visited by millions of people, where young people unwittingly make contact. As a result, a young person may not recognize where the conversation is heading. Some online platforms and websites screen this kind of content, but new sites are constantly popping up.
As kids become active on social media at increasingly younger ages, it’s essential to understand how and where white nationalists connect with young people, what their communications look like, and why some young people are drawn in.
