How to Identify a White Supremacist – Tip #1

racist-tea-party

White supremacists, outside of Tea Party rallies, are usually not this obvious. Despite being fierce individualists they only find their courage when they gather in mobs.

Go to Google and type in “define white supremacy” and this is the definition that will pop up:

“the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially the black race, and should therefore dominate society.”

This definition covers all shades and degrees of racism, if there be such a thing; whether racism is blatantly open or covert or otherwise subdued it stems from a belief in white supremacy. So-called liberals or progressives are not immune to feelings of white supremacy; and though it will undoubtedly be shocking to many, black people can also be white supremacists. Oprah Winfrey, for example, is a white supremacist; she clearly believes in the supremacy of the dominant white “culture” that is part of the foundation of the U.S. socio-political (and sociopathic) system. And it isn’t just the few black people allowed into the ruling class that are white supremacist; working class blacks in many cases experience self-loathing and a distrust of other black people. One black friend of mine told me a saying that was common in his neighborhood and among his peers: “If it ain’t white, it can’t be right!” Whether it be a door-to-door salesman,  insurance agent or a doctor, there existed the belief that black people were either more likely to be hucksters or else incompetent.

So, with that background we come to the actual tip referenced in the title of this piece. How many times have you heard this phrase: “I’m not racist, but . . .” followed by a racist, or rather, white supremacist comment? If you are a white U.S. American you will have heard this phrase many, many times. Whenever you hear this phrase you will now know, if you didn’t before, that the speaker is a goddamn racist – without fail. Lesson learned. Stay tuned for more tips on how to detect white supremacy.

    Racism is a lot less overt over here, but widespread nonetheless. It isn’t just about colour either, but extends to the Irish, Jewish people, and anything ‘not British’, like other religions. Fortunately, the extreme Right is not that popular, mainly due to memories of WW2 still being predominant, But the general idea of ‘better than’ is of course perpetuated by the rigid Class System that still exists.
    Best wishes, Pete.
