Extremism in America | Great Replacement Theory

Preview: Season 6 Episode 7 | 1m 2s

The day after the 2008 presidential election, a predominantly Black church was burned to the ground - this was just one of a number of hate crimes that occurred in the U.S. following President Barack Obama's election. The response was also due to a theory known as the 'great/white replacement' which has been believed, spread and used by white supremacists, conservative media and politicians.
