Right-wing militias are on the rise in several states and high rates of unemployment have further stoked anger against racial minorities and recent immigrants. Independent filmmakers Rick Rowley and Jacquie Soohen go inside the white nationalist movement to file an exclusive report.

    It’s been a year since Barack Obama was inaugurated as the first African-American president of this country. His election was as a turning point in race relations. But there’s also been a racist backlash to his victory at the polls. Right-wing militias are on the rise in several states across the country and high rates of unemployment have further stoked anger against racial minorities and recent immigrants. There’s been a surge in hate crimes, political murders, and assassination threats since Obama’s election. At least 9 high-profile racially motivated murders have taken place this past year.

    Independent filmmakers Rick Rowley and Jacquie Soohen went inside the white nationalist movement to investigate the backlash. This is an excerpt of their short documentary “White Power USA” that aired in full on Al Jazeera English. The full piece is also available on the Al Jazeera website and on the Big Noise films website.
