Analysis / Bias
In review, American Renaissance Magazine publishes news that is considered racist and supports white supremacy. A frequent topic on the website is the debunked notion that there is a connection between race and IQ as well as Multiculturalism and the War Against White America. Articles often contain loaded emotional language that attempts to portray African Americans negatively such as: Race, Welfare, and Media Lies and this Race, Crime, and Loathing in Minnesota. They also are very fearful of whites becoming the minority in the USA, through their promotion of the replacement conspiracy, The Great Replacement Is Not a Conspiracy, except it is a conspiracy.
