from the article.

Quote:
He argued that “whiteness is a form of racial oppression,” and that “there can be no white race without the phenomenon of white supremacists.”
this is wrong. it might be true if you add the caveat"in america in the 21st century". but its not absolute, you could easily have a society where blacks rule and whites were slaves. where white skin defined you as a slave, as inferior, as inherently worth less, because of your white skin. whites would be impoverished, illiterate, malnourished, and whenever compared to blacks they would always peform worse, thus reinforcing the socially constructed racial heirarchy. this is entirely plausible.

but this author thinks not. he thinks this is impossible, he thinks wherever there are white people there will be the concept that whites are superior. he doesnt realise that you could have whiteness without white supremacy. for him they go together. the only reason he would think this way is because that author actually does think whites are superior.

Sadly racism is not racist. Anyone, no matter their colour or gender, can be racist.

She deserved to be fired, her comments were racist.

'Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***.
'Come see me when you realise that racism isn't learned, it's inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege.
'Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk".

OK a serious comment for a change:

You could...but you won't find it in the real world! In our time, it's because capitalism tends to be monopolistic and once it provides one group economic advantages, they become entrenched for generations to come....and so does the poverty at the other end of the scale! In America, as with the rest of the world, the richest men(always men except for a few lucky heiresses) are white, and as we move down the billionaire ladder we start finding a few orientals and latinos...the black elite class has very few billionaires. And at the opposite end of the scale, degrees of poverty correlate with darkness of skin color. As long as wealth is white/and poverty is dark, the color code will stay the same.

It's been the case for the past 500 years, once European nations took advantage of their advanced shipbuilding and navigation technologies to build navies that span the globe, they seized an advantage which they have never given up as a group...but through wars and commercial rivalries only exchanged leadership based on resources and the size of their fleets...from Spain and Portugal to France and England to the USA...and who knows what will come after the American Empire falls, or if any life on earth will survive it!

The last time in history you'll find examples of white northerners enslaved and considered inferior stock by swarthy southerners was over 2000 years ago, when the Roman Empire was conquering, pillaging and living in constant fear of reprisals from savage red-haired/white skinned Celts in Gaul and even more savage Germantic tribes to the east of the Rhine River...who occupied lands the Romans didn't regard as having enough commercial value to try to conquer. The prevailing attitude among educated Roman patricians as best we can discern from the writings of philosophers and public officials, was that the white northerners were inferior because they did not have enough access to the sun's rays and became deprived in intellect and emotional stability..making them beasts and incapable of civilizing.

The big problem with this kind of analysis is that it is based solely on identity...in this case in racial identity.

This is what I find so nauseating about the typical liberal vs conservative back n forth debates--they cultivate their competing bases of support which are almost completely centered in identity politics today, because both conservative and liberal special interest groups have their hands out looking for money to drop down on them from their favorite billionaire funders...who don't want any mention of class dynamics..especially anything involving the raising of estate, investment and corporate taxes to even out the economic pyramid a little.

Even among black communities, younger people are noticing that they have their own wealthy elites who do not share the same interests as the majority of African Americans, color be damned! The last thing the black elite wants is the same thing the white ruling establishment fears- a populist coming together of the majority of all colors who are finding themselves falling further and further behind, while a privileged few keep getting richer...just like back in the Guilded Age!

I believe the main reason why traditional Republicans and Democrats have both got the sweats about trying to deal with increasingly disenchanted millenials and younger generations is precisely because those under 40 want to talk about economic inequality again. Neither of the traditional parties can speak this language today...at least not those among the ruling elites trying to control the party organizations.
