As debate rages in the US over how the white supremacist movement has resurfaced, triggering violent clashes, a letter written by a woman on the issue is being widely shared on social media.

US President Donald Trump was recently assailed from across the political spectrum for failing to respond more forcefully to violence in Charlottesville, where a rally by white supremacists turned deadly recently.

In the letter, published in The Salt Lake Tribune, the 67-year-old woman talks about how “white people” were claiming “supremacy” and Nazis were “openly walk(ing) the streets of America”.
