NPR Here and Now

Young white men have been responsible for many of the most recent mass shootings in this country.

Minutes before he killed 22 people in El Paso, Texas, the suspected gunman posted on an online forum, warning of a "Hispanic invasion” of Texas that would push out white Americans.

Former white supremacist Christian Picciolini says he used to believe those types of hate-filled statements as well.
