Mic dot Com Calls White Genocide A Crazy Conspiracy Theory!

Mic on the recent George Ciccariello-Maher twitter debacle...

The public outcry led Ciccariello-Maher to offer an explanation to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "For those who haven't bothered to do their research, 'white genocide' is an idea invented by white supremacists and used to denounce everything from interracial relationships to multicultural policies (and most recently, against a tweet by State Farm Insurance). It is a figment of the racist imagination, it should be mocked and I'm glad to have mocked it." 

In fact, "white genocide" is considered a conspiracy theory, heavily promoted by the so-called alt-right and popularized by South Carolina segregationist Bob Whitaker, who said that miscegenation and mass immigration from "the third world" might lead to white people "losing their majority status in U.S. and European populations" in the future, according to the Atlantic.
