Origin of "Overt/Covert White Supremacy" pyramid graphic?
August 14, 2017 8:42 AM   Subscribe

Does anyone know who the original creator of this graphic going around social media is? I would prefer to be using/sharing it with proper attribution, but I'm having trouble tracking that down. I know I've seen it before this weekend, although it's making the rounds again in the wake of Charlottesville.

Not responsive to the question, so feel free to delete, but I've wondering whether there's any significance to whether the examples are inside or outside of the triangle?

Putting it into Google Images and then walking back the date, the earliest I can track it down is a March 2013 "download file" blog entry. It seems to be posted on people's blogs most frequently in August 2016.

Looks like it was made by someone named Ellen Tuzzolo who first posted it on Facebook.

AwkwardPause: The outside examples simply didn't fit in the triangle's space...in a larger graphic they'd be inside.

Got it, thank you -- I was thinking that was the case, but then worried I was too dense to appreciate the difference.

Here is the link to the Google Image Search results -- I tried the same thing as WCityMike but I didn't have the patience to check all the results that didn't show a date. Of the entries with a date, it looks like in August 2016 it got shared a lot.

Thanks, all, for the help! From katecholamine's comment I was able to track down a version on Ellen Tuzzolo's Facebook page that includes additional source information.
