It’s funny how suddenly the misinformed and casually racist started rallying around All Lives Matter only after Black Lives Matter (just pretend there is a “too” there) became a movement. Those who have taken up the White Lives Matter aren’t exactly after fair treatment, though—and they have now been deemed a hate group. 

Reports the New York Times:

A white nationalist group called White Lives Matter, which calls itself an opponent of the Black Lives Matter movement, has been declared a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that tracks extremist groups in the United States.

“The White Lives Matter website says their movement is dedicated to the preservation of the white race. That tells you all you need to know,” said Heidi Beirich, the director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala. “They’re against integration, immigration. This is standard white supremacist stuff.”

The group, which grew out of a social media meme, argues that white Americans are victims of a genocide caused by factors like the immigration of nonwhite people and marriage between white Christians and nonwhites or Jews, Ms. Beirich said. The law center’s designation is meant to draw attention to and increase scrutiny of the group’s activities.

This is the same group that held a protest outside of the Houston office of the NAACP.

We’re guessing these guys didn’t want to use proper Ku Klux Klan branding. Go figure.
