8:42 am
francisco very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so as of her the suspect and the apostle shooting being investigated for domestic terrorism is that a good ways that a good tool to look into the role of far right white supremacist extremism and has attack well certainly elizabeth i believe that making the prosecution under a domestic terrorist charge is a bold move and definitely the right direction for public officials but i would add that they need to go much further and that includes banning assault rifles and making sure that they do not get into the hands of individuals like him i would also point out that law enforcement itself is infiltrated by white supremacists in many parts of the united states including right here in san francisco so we have to be very careful about how we move forward and civilian citizen
8:43 am
participation in this process is imperative so very much a multi-pronged approach needed if you are a racial equity trainer you're saying that law enforcement itself is infiltrated by people that have racist views the f b i has noted that most of its domestic terrorism cases featuring a racial motive actually involve white supremacists have they done enough about combating white supremacist ideology. no when we saw that in the recent testimony of the f.b.i. director they don't even have a law on the books to define white domestic terrorism as a form of terrorism it's all it's all protected because the government itself is white supremacist i mean we have a white supremacist as the president of the united states and he's protected by
8:44 am
white supremacists in the u.s. senate and house of representatives and on the u.s. supreme court so there is a great deal of protection for people who hold these views that is his base so you agree then will democratic presidential candidates like bernie sanders who say that president trump's rhetoric has anti immigrant rhetoric is to blame for attacks like this at least partly to blame and if you're saying that there was a white supremacist in the white house can we expect anything to change while he remains there. i don't expect anything to change in fact this is going to only continue to get more inflamed this is his campaign strategy he can't run on anything else other than to to mirror the
8:45 am
exact electoral map that got him into the white house in the 1st place he doesn't have anything to proclaim that he's accomplished to people so he is going to play to white supremacy and white people's fears all the way through to 2020 so i think it's imperative that we impeach him and get him out of there and certainly if he remains that we turn out and vote and get him voted out of office mr shrum do you see this becoming what the election coming up do you see this becoming an election issue and more pressure on him. yes i would hope this be the front and center election issue that every candidate is raising and i would also hope that white people start to take accountability for our role in all of this particularly white mothers you know
