This Sunday marks the one-year anniversary of the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, VA, when violent clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters left one woman dead and dozens injured. The incident sparked a national discussion about the prevalence of white nationalism and President Trump's reluctance to denounce it, declaring there were "very fine people on both sides." In this segment, we look at the white nationalist movement, one year later. Do you think differently about white nationalism in America, post-Charlottesville?
