I still remember the KKK in Falbrook.

The Chabad synagogue shooting is less surprising if you know the region’s past.

You can say this for almost the entire US, unfortunately. San Diego isn't unique. Oregon actually had a law banning Black settlement up until the 1930s, Portland is still considered racist. Queens, NY had active KKK and Daddy Trump was a member. Boston had literal riots over school segregation in the 1960s.

Even Vermont had active Klan at one point...

I think some people become white supremacists because they are tired of hearing about social injustice and income inequality. I am not sure why they do not like the Jewish community. I am a white male who is definitely tired of hearing about social injustice and income inequality, but I roll with the punches. I also support Israel and do not like palestinians. Oh, I am also German. I guess our views are cultivated by our perception of the complex world we live in.

Great logic -- you're upset about economic equality and social injustice so let's help preserve it. At far as the Middle Eastern situation, is it OK to love people but hate the people running all of the sides and pushing them towards war?
