Campaigners to list White Lives Matter as a hate group

The telegraph — White Lives Matter, an organisation set up in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests, is to be listed as a race hate group by campaigners. The Southern Poverty Law Centre  said it will include the organisation when it produces its hate map next February.

“I can’t speak to how many chapters will be listed, but it’s clear that the leadership of the group, the ends of the group — it’s just a flat-out white supremacist group,” Heidi Beirich, director of the centre’s Intelligence Report told the Houston Chronicle. “The ideology behind it, the racist leaders, everything about it is racist.

According to the centre one of the White Lives Matter’s key activists is Rebecca Barnette. “Her background, the rhetoric of the group, the hangers-on of the group are white supremacist,” Ms Beirich added. “The only question is how widespread they are, how many chapters there are.”

Ms Barnette is listed on the website of the American white supremacist National Socialist Movement’s website as the head of its women’s division. She also emerged as an organiser of a White Lives Matter rally in Buffalo, New York, last month.

“White Lives Matter will be hosting an event for like minded folk to gather peacefully and discuss the issues we face and work towards solutions to make it a greater safer whiter world for our future generations,” wrote Rebecca Barnette, an NSM member from Tennessee who helped organise the event.

The Black Lives Matter protests started following a series of police shootings of unarmed African Americans, with some of the demonstrations ending in violence.


  1. Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give
    a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your posts.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects?

    Appreciate it!

  2. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard
    time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
