The Great Replacement Theory – level 1
A conspiracy theory says that nonwhite people are replacing White people in the US.
It is called The Great Replacement Theory. Several killers shoot Black, Hispanic, and Jewish people in the US in different events. The killers believe in the theory.
A man shoots 10 Black people in the US last weekend. He says that other people come to the US. White people marry them. He says that these things aren’t good for White people.
Some media and politicians agree with the theory. The situation is dangerous. The theory shares ideas about racism. Experts say that we must speak about these things.
Difficult words: conspiracy theory (an idea which says that something is a secret plan of some powerful people), replace (to put something in the place of something else), racism (when someone doesn’t like someone else because he looks different).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
