Listen to the segment from On The Media at WNYC

If you're caught up on politics, you will have heard Donald Trump had dinner with white supremacist and avid anti-Semite Nick Fuentes; if you're a fan of hip hop, you'll know Ye, formerly Kanye West, appeared on Alex Jones' Info Wars to say he "sees good things" about Hitler; and should you follow men's professional basketball, the Brooklyn Nets' Kyrie Irving sharing a documentary claiming the Holocaust didn't happen, probably crossed your timeline.

Anti-semitism tragically remains one of those "isms" that's always around, sometimes living in internet discussion boards, sometimes manifesting in violence. But right now it seems to be occupying a lot of mainstream news outlets articles and air time. This week, Brooke sits down with Leo Ferguson, director of strategic projects at Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, to talk about why we're having these conversations now, and what history coverage should contain for proper context.
