  • Opinion Charlottesville exposes hidden hatred

Yet the strong reaction to President Trump's initial silence on the role of white supremacists helps illustrate a deeper national trend: Fewer people than ever accept that skin color is a measure of character or a reason for special treatment.

We cannot let anyone stoke racism for political gain.

Donald Trump belatedly condemned white supremacist groups that took part in violence scenes, but only following widespread criticism after he initially spoke out against hatred on "many sides". The "Unite the Right" rally was a battle over the city's ordered removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

United States authorities on Sunday were investigating the outbreak of violence in Virginia following a white nationalist rally that killed one person and injured 19. James Fields, 20, from OH, has been charged with murder. Dozens of people were injured and one young woman and two police officers were killed.

Members of Congress from both the Democratic and Republican parties criticised Mr Trump's first response, claiming his comments were muted and failed to place the blame with those responsible.

"We are here to show our support to all the people who are opposed to, what happened", said protester Joy Blake.

The protesters took aim at hate groups, white supremacists and the White House.

"He did the opposite of cuck. When reporters were screaming at him about White Nationalism he just walked out of the room".

They denounced the violence and hate and many pointed fingers at the White House and President Trump.

"I'm not going to make any bones about it".

It is on all of us, from me, to you, and all the way to the President, to denounce and decry the horror we've seen today in Virginia.

A spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday condemned the weekend violence and bigotry displayed in the U.S. state of Virginia.
