The Southern Poverty Law Center will designate White Lives Matter a hate group, it announced on Tuesday.
“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,” Heidi Beirich, the director of the Intelligence Project at the SPLC, said according to the New York Times.
Black Lives Matter is not, on the other hand, a hate group, according to the SPLC, who explains that that there is “nothing at all to suggest that the bulk of the demonstrators hold supremacist or black separatist views.”
White Lives Matter denies it is a hate group, saying in a statement to NBC News that it “is really about recognizing the contributions that people of European descent have made to civilization, and that we as a people and culture are worth preserving. We reject the notion that it is morally wrong for people of European descent to love and support their own race … We value Western civilization and believe that at the very least, immigrants should not make us dumber or poorer.”
