Dan Berger publishes op-ed about Charlottesville tragedy


IAS faculty member Dan Berger published an op-ed in the Washington Post about the Charlottesville tragedy. The op-ed, “When white supremacists strike, police don’t always strike back,” connects the killing of an antiracist protestor in Charlottesville to the 1979 Ku Klux Klan murders of five antifascist demonstrators in Greensboro, North Carolina. One of those killed was Cesar Cauce, brother of UW President Ana Mari Cauce. In his op-ed, Berger notes that Donald Trump’s support for white nationalist movements sits in a long line of government officials enabling racist movements.
