America’s largest hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, tweeted on Monday that they were “collapsing the Black Separatist listing” on their so-called “hate map” because “black separatism was born out of valid anger against very real historical and systemic oppression.”
The tweet included a link to an article from October that initially announced the change, titled “Equity Through Accuracy: Changes to Our Hate Map.”
We're collapsing the Black Separatist listing on our hate map. Black separatism was born out of valid anger against very real historical and systemic oppression.

The SPLC stated, however, that they were not necessarily going to scrub black separatist groups from their website. They claimed they would still “monitor” them while “transferring them to hate ideologies […] that better describe the harm their rhetoric inflicts.”
“Black separatist groups land on the SPLC’s hate map because they propagate antisemitic, anti-LGBTQ and male supremacist views, not because they oppose a white supremacist power structure,” the article said.
The SPLC then digs into the specific reasons why they decided to make the change. They do not wish to appear like they’re “suppressing” black activism or supporting “criminalizing and over-policing.”
“Black separatism is a response to white supremacy and white nationalism; it has not, however, received the same mainstream attention as white nationalism. Nor do Black separatists have the overwhelming share of racially motivated violence attributed to their overall goals of separation. Yes, some Black nationalists have committed violence against Jewish communities, but those are fueled by antisemitism, not separatism. Additionally, Black separatism is rooted in valid concerns about how federal and state institutions treat Black people,” they argue.
The SPLC also appeals to “power dynamics” and claims that “white supremacy” represents the country’s actual threat. Although acknowledging the anti-whiteness of black separatists, the “realities of racial power dynamics” dictate that “black separatism” and “white supremacy” are false equivalents. One is understandable, one is completely abhorrent.
But would the SPLC maintain the same logic for a so-called “black supremacist” state that oppressed its white minority, such as South Africa? Would they grant that “white separatism” is understandable and “rooted in valid concerns”? Of course not. Oppressed whites still have “privilege” at the end of the day.
POLITICAL HIT? Pro-Trump Portland, Oregon Print Shop Owner Gunned Down in Parking Lot
The shooting of a Portland man is colored with political connotations.
A Portland man who operated a print shop was shot and killed in the parking lot of a nightclub on Saturday, with police thus far unable to apprehend a suspect or establish a motive. 40-year old William Peters was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Acropolis bar, with a friend of his, Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, also being shot and killed in a double homicide.
Peters was senselessly murdered on his four-year old daughter’s birthday. He also leaves behind a fiancée. Reports sourced from purported friends of Peters indicate that the 503print owner was leaving the club uneventfully when a vehicle pulled up in front of the parking spot his truck was in. After an exchange of words, Peters, and Arrambide were shot.
Big League Politics has learned that Peters previously made himself a target of ANTIFA intimidation for printing pro-Donald Trump banners and imagery at his print shop. The father also personally supported Donald Trump, a bold move in the notoriously left-wing and bigoted Oregon city.
On a Portland Reddit page, left-wing haters celebrated the family man’s death, claiming the shooting was deserved because of Peters’ support for Trump. Other users on the forum confirmed that the small businessman was known as a Trump supporter, potentially making it onto the Stasi-style ‘lists’ that the extremist group has compiled of conservatives in Multnomah County.
Portland ANTIFA has proven more than willing to target businesses that stand in the way of their own political power, especially in the city’s downtown area. In the wake of Peters’ seemingly random homicide, it’s difficult to ignore the political implications of the targeted assassination. Anyone with information on the disturbing double homicide is being asked to step forward and contact Det. Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-3774 or Det. Eric McDaniel at Eric.McDaniel@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0833.
A GoFundMe raising money for Peters’ funeral expenses has already received more than $8,500 in contributions from mourners.
