"White people are so much higher than any other race," a Ku Klux Klan member tells Univision anchor Jorge Ramos

A giant blazing swastika, Nazi salutes and a white supremacist gathering are a few of the scenes that Univision anchor Jorge Ramos witnessed over six months in towns across the United States and which appear in a new Univision/Fusion feature documentary, “Hate Rising.”

Though the ideology of white nationalism once seemed relegated to the fringes, groups like the Ku Klux Klan and the alt-right are no longer hiding in the shadows. More than ever, they are rising up against an inclusive, multicultural America.

Over the last year, that rhetoric has found its way into the mainstream, spurred along by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has been widely supported by the alt-right and white supremacy groups for his vow to “make America great again.” The Southern Poverty Law Center has dubbed the increase of white supremacist rhetoric and intimidation the “ Trump Effect.

In “Hate Rising,” Ramos goes to the source of the racist, intolerant, anti-immigrant sentiments multiplying online, in the streets, and in politics. He also speaks to Muslims and Latinos who have been the victims of hate crimes.

“In every country there is hate,” Ramos said. “Suddenly we are allowing hate and bigotry to be the norm.”

‘Hate Rising’ was directed by Emmy-nominated Catherine Tambini, reported by award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos, and produced by Univision Story House in conjunction with FUSION. It will premiere in dual-broadcasts on Fusion in English and Univision in Spanish on October 23 at 10 PM EST.
