In Alabama, hundreds of people protested against a speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer at Auburn University Tuesday night in the latest round of protests against the racist and xenophobic leader of the so-called alt-right movement. Spencer spoke against the wishes of the university, after a federal judge ruled the university did not have the power to cancel his speech. Spencer said Tuesday’s speech was sponsored by the white nationalist website AltRight.com.
