White-supremacist ideas gained significant exposure through online video games this year, particularly among adults, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League .

One-fifth of adults reported being confronted with white supremacist ideologies, more than double the rate a year earlier. At the same time, 15% of teen and preteen gamers surveyed said they interacted with people who “believe that white people are superior to people of other races and that white people should be in charge, ” according to the report.

Gamers heard white-supremacist views most often in Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty, Take-Two Interactive Software’s Grand Theft Auto, Riot Games’ Valorant plus Epic Games’ Fortnite.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
