Race and Ethnicity
White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville
On August 12, 2017, the Unite the Right rally was conducted by a collection of neo-Nazis and supremacists to present their grievances against the removal of a statue of General Robert E Lee. General Lee was a commanding general of the Confederate Army. However, the rally was forced to end after violence between the white supremacists and the racists erupted. A thirty-two-year-old woman was killed and nineteen others injured after a speeding car rammed into the anti-racist crowd. The driver fled the scene but was later arrested. The driver was a twenty-year-old, Alex Field Jr., was charged with second-degree murder, hit –and-run and malicious wounding. Two state troopers succumbed to death after a helicopter belonging to police crashed on its way to the rally. The governor declared a state of emergency and members of the community had to stay indoors. Federal Bureau of Investigation launched its own investigation following the incident. A fundraiser was then held for the woman who was killed in the riots.
Sociology entails concepts or ideas that are vital for the deeper understanding of the White Supremacy in Charlottesville. Social structure is one of the sociological ideas. Tischler (2014, p.27) states that social structure refers to the configuration of social relationships including numbers of people, for example, the size of a crowd or a country. In the rally, the protestors came together to fight against the removal of the statue. Social action is another sociological idea. According to Tischler (2014, p.206), social action is a fundamental concept as it refers to the manner in which groups or individuals try to change society to what they want it to be like. In this case, for example, the anti-racist group of protesters wanted a life that would be free from being discriminated against. The social action also reveals how the actions people do affect or solely depend on their relationship with other people. Besides individual social actions also affect people’s social actions.
