Richard Bertrand Spencer (born May 11, 1978)[1] is an American white supremacist.[2] He is president of the National Policy Institute (NPI), a white supremacist think tank, as well as Washington Summit Publishers.

Spencer does not believe that he is a white supremacist and calls himself a white nationalist.[3][4][5] He has been called a neo-Nazi.[6] Spencer created the term "alt-right", which he thinks is a movement about "white identity".[7]

Spencer was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He was raised in Dallas, Texas and in Whitefish, Montana. Spencer studied at the University of Virginia and at the University of Chicago.
