A Review of Rising Out of Hatred
Rising Out of Hatred tells the story of how white-supremacist ideas migrated from the far-right fringe to the White House by tracing the incredible transformation of Derek Black, a young man who grew up in the epicenter of white nationalism. His father founded Stormfront, the largest racist community on the Internet. Derek eventually disavowed everything he was taught to believe at tremendous personal cost. Saslow asks what Derek’s story can tell us about America’s increasingly divided nature. This is a book to help us understand the American moment and to help us better understand one another.
