According to a report by the Anti-Defamation League, white nationalists/supremacists were responsible for more than half of all extremist related murders in the United States in 2017.

White supremacists were “directly responsible” for 18 out of 34 U.S. extremist-related deaths in 2017, the ADL said. Islamic extremists, by comparison, were only responsible for nine deaths in America.”

The number of white supremacist murders in the United States more than doubled in 2017 compared to the previous year.”
