A new poll from Harvard on "racism" was released last week. Pew explains "the share of Americans who say racial discrimination is the main reason that many blacks are unable to get ahead is now at its highest level dating back more than two decades. Still, somewhat more say blacks who are unable to get ahead are mainly responsible for their condition.
Overall, 61% of Americans say the country needs to continue making changes to give blacks equal rights with whites, compared with 35% who say the country has made the changes needed to give blacks equal rights with whites.
There are stark partisan and ideological divisions in these opinions. Core Conservatives stand out for their belief that the country has made the necessary changes to give blacks equal rights (81%). Majorities of Country First Conservatives (66%) and Market Skeptic Republicans (61%) share this view. [MORE]
NPR says "majorities in many ethnic, identity and racial groups" [translation, this means non-whites] in America believe that discrimination exists against their own group, across many areas of people's daily lives, according to a poll from NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
The poll asked a wide range of questions about where Americans experience discrimination — from the workplace to the doctor's office — and people's perception of it. The groups polled include whites, blacks, Latinos, Asian-Americans, Native Americans and LGBTQ adults.
White Americans are among those who feel their group is discriminated against, with 55 percent saying discrimination exists against whites in the U.S. today. [MORE] That is, white people "believe" discrimination against them exists and believe" "they encounter it.
Yes and know that "belief" is a real motherfucker. Osho Rajineesh states, 'A mind that is filled with belief is a mind which can project anything according to the belief. When you see things, always remember this.' [MORE] Dr. Blynd explains "only the blind must believe in sunlight."
"The experience is the result of the belief, not the other way around. We do not formulate our beliefs based on what we experience. Quite the contrary, the belief comes first and then we create the experience as a projection or trajectory of the belief." You cannot know something and believe it simultaneously and vice versa." A "believer" is "one who accepts that which has no basis in reality. 2) a person who enjoys being deceived. A believer does not seek—just accepts theologies and/or ideologies. 3) one who is addicted to vanity and/or chained to convention with conviction. 4) one who lives in a cloud of illusions, confounded by language and its deceptions. Believers are people who make their lives subjective slaves to a mere belief—engineered my limited and fragmented understanding and fostered by erroneous conclusions based solely on effects and appearances. A true believer would rather believe in something and be wrong than not believe in it and be right." More on belief from Dr. Blynd is [HERE] and much more [HERE].
White people's inability to see things as they really are has to do with the power of their belief in their fantasy of white supremacy/racism. White people don’t see us with their eyes. In the presence of color their eyes are filled with so many thoughts - they are thinking and not seeing - so they are not really present and missing reality in the right now - like walking dead. Unfortunately, racists have the unequal power to bring into reality the bullshit they project. Based on their cartoon beliefs Neuropeans go on projecting and have created a play or pretend world for us to live in - a world based on their idiocy.
But enough about whites & their problems. Whether you choose to either "react" or "respond" to actual reality will determine if you can drop your role in his system.
Racism is a worldwide phenomenon that is highly observable [except on television of course]. Consciously aware or deprogramming Non-whites - those who have eyes and ears to see and hear- can directly experience racism whenever they want to. No study, polls or research is necessary. You can easily test out Neely Fuller's theory that "most white people (51% or more) hate Black people" by just walking out your house and observing for a while. You will see it with your eyes (unless you are mind blocked) or experience it through interactions and thereby "know" through personal experience or "knowing" or through "being." As Dr. Blynd explains, "Belief is for kids."
It is never clear what is meant when people use the words "racism" or "discrimination" but clearly, racists like to use word tricks or confuse with language, for instance by using words with different meanings interchangeably. Racism/white supremacy is primarily carried out through deception. Confusion is a major tool of racists.
The terms "racist" and "racists" and racism are often used interchangeably or confusingly by racists with what is really just bigotry or just name calling or bad behavior directed at someone.
As explained in FUNKTIONARY;
bigot - one who manifests and expresses self hatred and self inferiority. Not to be confused with racism.
Bigotry - manfestation of the self-alien(h)ated and self hatred projected towards others, especially those of a different so-called race. Bigotry is personal, whereas white supremacy racism is an institutionalized group power dynamic and impersonal.
Racism White Supremacy - 1) psychopathic degeneracy. 2) "The local and global power system and dynamic, structured and maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined, which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action and emotional response, as conducted simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labour, law, politics, religion, sex and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet earth—a planet upon which the vast majority of people are classified as non-white (Black, Brown, Red and Yellow) by white skinned people, and all of the nonwhite people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white skin people." -Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, MD.
In reality, to be a racist is to be an "upholder, supporter and perpetrator of the institution of the White Supremacy Dynamic in a system of oppression (structured and perpetuated injustice—racism) a white over Black system of vast unequal power and unequal conditions.
There is no system of Black supremacy. Nelly Fuller has observed that there is only one functioning form of racism in the known world- White supremacy. He challenges his readers to identify and then to demonstrate the superiority or functional supremacy of any of the world's "non-white" peoples over anyone. Concluding that since there is no operational supremacy of any "colored" people, Fuller reveals that the only valid operational definition of racism is white supremacy. He observes that in spite of any and all statements the world's "non-white" peoples may make about themselves having economic and/or political independence and the like, in the final analysis, they are all victims of the white supremacy process. He places major emphasis on the present realities of the world that can be verified and tested, rather than on what one could imagine to be the case (such as a black or yellow supremacy). He further emphasizes that, instead of focusing on individual cases or on specific locations, a perspective that examines the patterns of relationships between whites and "non-whites" worldwide must be developed.

Racism is white supremacy and white supremacy is racism. 'Everywhere one finds Whites and Blacks in close proximity to each other, whether it is Chicago or Zimbabwe, the Whites are in control. This extraordinary universal phenomenon which defies every known statistical law of probability is rarely questioned by African Americans (90% of the world is non-white)'. [MORE] In a system of white supremacy/racism non-whites cannot be racist to whites b/c they have no power to do so. It is a white over Black system of vast unequal power by design.
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. [MORE]
"Q: Are you saying blacks cannot be racist toward whites?
A: That’s correct. Of course, all people can be hateful or prejudiced. Those terms describe individual behaviors, not systematic power. Racism is the COLLECTIVE behaviors of a group. A white individual within a system of racism/white supremacy has the implicit or explicit support of that system IF they choose to practice racism.
If a poor man robs a rich man at gunpoint that doesn’t mean the poor man is more powerful (economically and politically) than the rich man. The poor man is an individual who committed a crime of opportunity. There are no powerful institutions or systems that support his right to rob the rich man, but there are institutions and systems that allow the rich man to rob the poor man - which is why he doesn’t need a gun to do it.
A black person who mistreats a white person doesn’t mean black people are more powerful (economically and politically) than white people. Never confuse the actions of a black individual (or a group of black individuals) that mistreats someone white as proof that black racism exists. Their “power” is limited ONLY to what they can do as individuals. There are NO black institutions or systems that support, defend, or finance the right of blacks to mistreat whites.
There are NO black individuals or black organizations that have the power to strip whites of their collective right to live where they want, work where they want, get an education wherever they want, or control what white people do collectively in ANY area of human activity. There are NO black institutions that are more powerful than white institutions. Therefore, blacks do not have the COLLECTIVE POWER to diminish the quality of life for the white collective.
Q: What is collective power?
A: Collective power is the institutions and systems that benefit one group at the expense of another group, and allow one group to dominate another group in all areas of human activity.
For example, when a white policeman shoots an unarmed black man (50 times), his fellow officers, the police chief, internal affairs, the union, the media, the prosecutor, the judge, and the jury will support, defend, and finance that white police officer’s “right” to shoot (murder) an unarmed black person. That is white collective power. [MORE]
