Threats of Violence

In the past year, Silent Sam protestors have faced threats of violence at the Silent Sam sit-in.  However, in response to Maya’s brave act of civil disobedience on April 30th, she and other Silent Sam protestors have faced an unprecedented number of online attacks, including violent threats and racist vitriol.  White supremacist and neo-Confederate Facebook pages have been especially rife with these threats, even as site administrators meekly maintain that their respective groups do not condone violence or racism.  While neo-Confederates often claim they support “Heritage, not Hate,” many comments express a nostalgia for the racist violence of the Old South.  Silence Sam activists and allies have documented many such threats and comments here.

Since the night of August 20th, when students and community organizers pulled down Silent Sam, we have received further threats online.  We are slowly working to document these threats as well.
