An ingenious project is turning president-elect Donald Trump's proposed Muslim registry on its head. Enter the "The National White Man Registry," a Google doc designed to keep track of all white men in the United States.
While it seems ridiculous to force all white men to register simply because of their race and gender, the project's creator, Candace Thompson, offers a compelling reason why white men should be monitored by the federal government.
"Forget the nation of Islam, our most immediate threat to domestic security is and always has been white, straight men," she said on the registry's website, All White Men. She then lists multiple ways that white men have been dangerous for America.
"As you may or may not know, in America 57% of reported rapes and 64% of mass shootings were committed by white men," she wrote. "Forty-five percent of all serial killers are white men. One in three women will experience some form of domestic violence during their lifetime, and 97% of those domestic violence perpetrators were men."
