Many remain stunned at the display of hate, racial intolerance, and a brutal act of violence that held the Virginia city of Charlottesville under siege this past weekend.
People are flocking to social media seeking some sort of answers as to why racism still continues to plague American society and to express their frustrations, dismay, and outrage.
Barack Obama and other leaders from the business, political, and media worlds, expressed some of the most powerful and poignant thoughts about the turbulence at Charlottesville on their Twitter feeds:

Trump defined himself during campaign. He encouraged violence against protesters at rallies. We should not be surprised. #Charlottesviille
