‘Racism is white supremacy. White supremacy is racism. There is no other form. ” -- Neely Fuller, Jr.
Let's Begin At The Beginning By Defining the Words:
White Supremacy — a social, economic, and political system based on the belief that whites are superior to non-whites. (the Foundation).
Racism — the systematic discrimination (the denial of rights and benefits) by whites against non-whites in all areas of human activity: (1) economics, (2) education, (3) entertainment, (4) labor, (5) law, (6) politics, (7) religion, (8) sex, and (9) war. (the Behavior).
Q: Why is it called “Racism/White Supremacy?”
A: Because this describes exactly WHO is practicing racism. For one group to practice racism that group must have MORE POWER than another group. Since whites control ALL the major areas of human activity in America — housing, education, health, entertainment, economics, politics, law, and religion — it is accurate to define all “racism” as “white supremacy.” We must be accurate so the victims of racism do not become confused.
Q: Isn’t all racism the same, regardless of who is practicing it?
A: There is only ONE kind of racism: white supremacy. White people are the only group in America with the POWER to discriminate (deprive or punish other ethnic groups), and the systems and institutions to maintain the imbalance of power.
For example, rich people are more powerful than poor people. Rich people have the POWER to discriminate against poor people by depriving them of income, promotions, jobs, housing, land, justice, and any other rights – if they choose to do so.
In America, whites have the POWER to discriminate against blacks (and other non-whites) by depriving them of income, promotions, jobs, housing, land, justice, and any other rights – if they choose to do so. It doesn’t matter that some whites are poorer than some blacks.
In all things and in all places in America, whites are collectively more powerful than blacks are collectively. This imbalance of (white) power creates the opportunity and the ability to practice racism against non-whites. Racism is not empty rhetoric (words) or mindless emotion. Racism is economic, political, institutional, and systematic POWER. Since whites control all the institutions and systems of power in America, only whites have the power to practice racism.
Q: Why are people referred to as “groups” instead of “races?”
A: Because there is ONLY ONE RACE: the white race. To prove this statement, let’s look at the TRUE meaning of “race.” In ancient civilizations tens of thousands of years ago (before Europeans inhabited the planet), the world’s people identified themselves by bloodline, birthplace, and culture – but NEVER by the artificial construct (concept) of “race.”
What is the “black race” in real terms? It does NOT describe the place where black people were born because there is no such place as “black land,” (or red, yellow, brown, or white land). Race does not describe a person’s religion because there is no such thing as a black, red, brown, yellow, or white religion.
Race does not describe a person’s culture (except in false, stereotypical terms), and it does NOT define biology, ethnicity, or nationality. Race does not describe skin color because the so-called “black race” includes people whose complexions range from the palest pink to the purest blue-black. Therefore, “race” is a false, man-made concept.
Q: If “race” is a false concept, why was it created?
A: Race was created for ONLY one purpose: to practice race-ism (racism). To practice “racism,” whites had to separate themselves from other groups of people by artificially creating different “races.”
Q: Why was “racism/white supremacy” created?
A: Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, a black psychiatrist and the author of ‘The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors’ (1991), states that White Supremacy is practiced by the global “white” minority on the conscious and unconscious level to ensure their genetic survival by any means necessary.
Because of their “numerical inadequacy,” whites may have defensively developed “an uncontrollable sense of hostility and aggression” towards people of color, and developed a social, political, and economic structure to give blacks and other non-whites the appearance of being inferior.”
Q: Who decides what “race” a person will be?
A: The same (white) people who created the concept of race. If the ONLY purpose of “race” is to practice racism, and whites are the only group or “race” (in a white supremacy system) that can practice racism, then it is logical to assume there is ONLY ONE RACE: the white race.
Q: If the white race is the only race, what are the other ‘groups’ called?
A: There are three types of people in a white supremacist system:
1. Non-white people
2. White people (Racist Suspects)
3. White Supremacists (Racists)
Q: What is a “Non-White” person?
A: Anyone who is NOT classified as “white.” This includes all black, red, yellow, and brown people aka “people of color.”
Q: What is a “Racist Suspect?”
A: ANY white person who is CAPABLE of practicing racism against non-whites. Since all whites are able to practice racism in a white supremacy system if they choose to do so, it is correct (and logical) to use the term “racist suspects” to identify whites who do not openly function as white supremacists (racists). This is not a hateful, unjust, or racist statement, but it is a logical statement.
Q: What is a “White Supremacist?”
A: A white person (a racist) who practices racism against non-whites. Being a white supremacist has nothing to do with income, title, or status. It does not mean a white person belongs to the KKK, the Aryan Nation, or is covered with Nazi tattoos. A white supremacist can be a soccer mom, a businessman, or a US Senator if they are practicing racism against non-whites. Another term for a white supremacist is “racist white man” and “racist white woman.”
Q: How can a non-white person determine if a white person is a racist?
A: Non-whites cannot always determine who is a racist, and who is not, because it is impossible to monitor (or judge) all the individual actions and words of any white person at all times. To illustrate this point:
Case Of The Stolen Wallet
There are five people in a room when a wallet that belongs to a sixth person (who is not in the room) is stolen. All five are “suspects” because every person in the room had the ability and the opportunity to take the wallet. This does not mean all five are thieves NOR does it mean all five are not thieves, because any of them could have stolen something at an earlier time.
As it turns out, two of the five people in the room CONSPIRED to steal the wallet by breaking into the sixth person’s locker. The other three saw it happen, did not participate in the crime, did not care that the wallet was stolen, and did and said nothing to stop it from happening.
The sixth person – the owner of the wallet — has no idea who stole it, if anyone saw what happened, or how many participated in the theft. All he knows is has been the VICTIM of a crime because his wallet is missing.
The two people who stole the wallet are guilty of “commission” – they actually committed the crime. The three witnesses are guilty of “omission” since they witnessed the crime, said nothing and did nothing to stop it, and refused to help the victim with the information they had.
The next day the two thieves treat the three witnesses to lunch, paying for it with the money from the stolen wallet. The witnesses did not steal the wallet but are knowingly or unknowingly benefiting from the theft.
The three witnesses are not legally liable, but they are morally liable, and are correctly viewed as “suspects” by the victim.
Racism operates the same way. There are whites who:
- are practicing racism against non-whites at a particular moment
- are not practicing racism at that moment but have practiced it at a previous time, or will practice it at a later time
- are not practicing racism at that moment, but say and do nothing to stop those who are
- are not practicing racism at that moment, but have no problem with other whites practicing racism (don’t care)
- are benefiting from the crime of racism even if they are not practicing racism at that moment
- refuse to tell WHO is practicing racism; HOW racism is being practiced; and refuse to help the victims with the information they have
- oppose racism by exposing and opposing whites who practice it
Mr. X, a black management trainee, is looking for an apartment closer to his new job. He calls an upscale rental complex near his office, and asks if they have any one-bedroom apartments. The rental agent, a young white male, says there are two one-bedroom apartments available, takes Mr. X’s name and phone number, and asks him to stop by and fill out an application.
The next day Mr. X stops by the complex after work. A different rental agent, Mrs. W, a middle-aged white female, greets him in the reception area. She says she’s sorry, but there are no apartments available.
She suggests he fill out an application so they will have his information on file, and promises Mr. X that he will be the first one she calls when a one-bedroom becomes available.
Mr. X is immediately suspicious, but he fills out an application anyway. On his way home, he replays the conversation with the rental agent. Mr. X has no way of knowing if the first rental agent made an honest mistake, or if he has just been a victim of racial discrimination. His gut tells him it was the latter.
When Mrs. W saw Mr. X was black, she used the same line she always used with black applicants. Later, she warns the new rental agent — who talked to Mr. X over the phone – to never rent to blacks or Hispanics.
Like the man whose wallet was stolen, Mr. X is the victim of a crime. The problem is, Mr. X can’t be sure a crime was even committed, which makes it more difficult for him to protect himself from being victimized in the future. It is this kind of confusion that wreaks the most psychological damage on black people who run a DAILY risk of being victimized by racism – without being able to prove they were victimized.
Mrs. W is guilty of commission (practicing racism). The new rental agent is guilty of omission because he said and did nothing, and refused to help Mr. X with the information he had (that another white person, Mrs. W, was practicing racism).
It is the crime of commission AND omission that allows the system of racism/white supremacy to function so effectively. The system does not require all whites to practice racism at all times, but it does require that the majority of whites say and do nothing when racism is occurring and allow themselves to benefit from the victimization of non-whites.
Those benefits include better jobs, housing, food, medical care, education, police protection, justice, etc., than non-whites. If the majority of whites were opposed to racism/white supremacy, it would NOT be the most powerful social, economic, and political system on the planet.
It is LOGICAL to assume that the majority (or possibly all) white people have made a DELIBERATE DECISION to do one or all of the following:
- practice racism
- do nothing and say nothing to stop others from practicing racism
- deny racism is being practiced even when they know it is happening
- refuse to help the victims of racism with the information they have
That’s why simple-minded thinking is useless when determining which white person is a racist and which one is not. It cannot be determined by a white person’s sexual behavior. White slave owners had sexual relations with male and female slaves but they were still white supremacists (racists).
Whites have engaged in sexual relations with black people, but that doesn’t mean they are not racists. Whites who have black friends, wives, husbands, or children are still “racist” if they are practicing racism against non-whites.
It cannot be determined by observing the words or the actions of a particular white person, who may or may not be practicing racism at that particular time. It cannot be determined by a random (or deliberate) act or acts of kindness toward a non-white person. Mass child-murderer John Gacy was “kind” to children when he performed in his clown costume. There were slave-owners who were “kind” to their slaves, but not kind enough to stop selling human beings.
AXIOM #1: YOU CANNOT OPPOSE SOMETHING AND KNOWINGLY BENEFIT FROM IT AT THE SAME TIME.
It is LOGICAL in a white supremacist society to assume the majority of whites are either practicing racism (the act of commission), or are cooperating with those who are, by saying and doing nothing to stop them, refusing to help the victims of racism with the information they have (the act of omission), and are benefiting from the practice of racism.
Q: Do non-racist whites benefit from White Supremacy?
A: ALL white people benefit from white privilege in a white supremacy system, even if they are not practicing racism at that moment. It does not matter if they rich or poor; or whether they admit there is such a thing as white privilege. Anyone who is classified as “white” in a white supremacy system will always have advantages over someone who is not. Just as a black person in a black supremacy system (if one existed) would have advantages over someone who is not black.
Q: Aren’t some white people opposed to racism?
A: Only if they are saying and doing something to oppose it. For example, John Brown, a white male, encouraged armed insurrection by slaves as a means to end slavery, and as a result, was charged with treason and hanged.
However, that does not mean John Brown did not practice racism at an earlier time OR would not have practiced it at a later time had he lived.
Q: What about the white anti-racist activists who speak out against about racism? Aren’t they opposed to white supremacy?
A: The self-anointed, white anti-racist activists offer little more than LIP SERVICE. They sacrifice NOTHING, take NO risks, and reap MORE financial rewards than the black activists fighting in the (real) trenches.
The white anti-racist actually creates MORE confusion by creating the FALSE illusion that the devastated black masses can be liberated from racism by sitting in an auditorium or conference room, listening to a white person making anti-racism speeches (while STILL enjoying their white privileges).
It is UNLIKELY that the same white anti-racist activists who PROFIT from writing books and giving speeches about racism — have any real desire (or intent) to destroy the same white supremacy system that allows them to oppose it without losing a single ‘white privilege. There may be whites who SINCERELY want to replace the system of white supremacy with a system of justice, but that number is so statistically small, it is insignificant.
Q: When blacks mistreat whites, isn’t that “racism/black supremacy?”
A: No, because black supremacy does not exist. If black people were collectively more powerful than whites collectively, blacks would have the power to practice racism. Logically speaking, that would mean the end of white supremacy.
AXIOM #2: BLACK SUPREMACY CAN EXIST ONLY IN THE TOTAL ABSENCE OF WHITE SUPREMACY. WHITE SUPREMACY CAN EXIST ONLY IN THE TOTAL ABSENCE OF BLACK SUPREMACY. THE TEXTBOOK DEFINITION OF “SUPREMACY” IS: THE HIGHEST RANK OR AUTHORITY. THIS MEANS ONLY ONE THING CAN BE “SUPREME” OR OCCUPY THE “HIGHEST RANK” AT A TIME.
If blacks and whites had equal power and resources, there could be no black supremacy OR white supremacy. Our ability (power) to discriminate against (mistreat) each other would be cancelled out, leaving only two options: coexist peacefully or destroy each other.
