(CNN) - The cover of Time Magazine's latest issue is an illustration of racial hatred in America.

It shows a figure in jack boots giving a Nazi salute while mostly hidden behind a draped American flag.

The symbolism is unmistakable - white supremacist hate groups hiding under a veil of patriotism. It comes after the deadly violence in Charlottesville.

A woman was killed when an accused white supremacist allegedly slammed his car into a crowd of people at a rally billed to "unite the right."

The artist who designed the image says white supremacists are taking advantage of the freedoms America guarantees "to further an agenda of hatred."
