Whereas the era of dog whistles may have signaled an ambient level of white rage, today’s white rage is so constantly amplified it no longer makes sense to talk about it as rage, or any other set of feelings that fall outside of normal conditions. In the Trump era, white supremacy is no longer a matter of rage. It’s a matter of fact.
