This Twitter Account is Outing the Men Behind the Violence in Charlottesville

Twitter user @YesYoureRacist, who has been "exposing casual racism on Twitter since 2012," is especially busy this weekend. Yes, You're Racist is taking on the daunting task of digging through the internet to expose the men behind this weekend's violent white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, which has left three dead and 35 injured.

Thanks to their own digging and tips from other Twitter users, Yes, You're Racist has been outing the men behind the violence and hatred in Virginia all weekend.

One of the scary yet unsurprising things Yes, You're Racist has exposed is how many of these men have connections to conservative political figures. 

But many of the protestors are simply angry white men who have become emboldened by the normalization of the "Alt-Right."
