White Supremacism, Genocide, and Slavery

White Supremacists fancy themselves gifts of their god.

They embrace a narrowly interpreted vengeful deity who traffics in racist hate.

They self-identify as the model for an Aryan ideal/idolized/incarnate.

They admire Third Reich political thought.

They craft lies to justify dodgy principles.

They employ the language of lynchers.

They find impetus and reward in the “wisdom” of Donald J. Trump.

White supremacists have been responsible for more than half, 54 percent, of all domestic extremist-related murders in the past 10 years. In the last year, that figure has risen to 78 percent of all extremist-related murders. That is, White supremacists were responsible for more than three-quarters of all domestic extremist murders in 2018.

Hate Crimes and the Rise of White Nationalism

But racism is hardly confined to Proud Boys and Confederate “traditions.” Systemic white supremacism began long before 1619, couched in a British imperialist tyranny upon which the sun never set. Their robbing and plundering reached far beyond the triangular logistics of North Atlantic trade. Know this as divinely inspired colonialism, insipid to the marrow.

US Sanitized National Memory: soundbites of programmed propagandized faux history. Our (white) genocide of tribes began with European greed throughout the Western Hemisphere. Trillions of words reflect the glory of Western Civilization and Judeo-Christian Heritage — successors of a Roman and Greek slavery-enabled citizenry with strains of political expediency. Yet, its dark shadow also runs long.

US legend-history speaks of slaves obtaining 3/5ths of a white wholesome whole human, but the actual intent is far more insidious. The US Constitution, empowered in 1787, identified blacks as 3/5ths of a white token, but the actual scheme gave slavers the voting right of each slave such that a slave-holder who held 100 Black-Africans commanded 160 units of geopolitical power.

The Except Clause

Over the past four decades, the right-wing campaign against Roe v. Wade has been the most violent protest movement in modern American history. Despite recent complaints by conservatives about acts of violence associated with the George Floyd protests in 2020, no other recent social protest movement comes close to anti-abortion activists’ long record of violence.

The Army of God

These are the stark realities that demonstrate just how much was stolen via institutional slavery, a thieving scheme that occurs under different names, each the exploitation of stolen Black Africans that began 403 years ago. African Blacks emigrating to the US have ancestral connections, ADOS (Ameri can Descendants of Slavery) do not because they were acquired as instruments in the production of high value commodities: sugar cane, cocoa, tobacco, and cotton.

Slavery propelled the US from an agrarian to an industrial economy. How many trillions of stolen dollars does this represent? No ADOS is a billionaire. How many ADOS does it take to make a billionaire? How many homeless people are needed to create multiple billionaires?

The sheer number of blacks shot by police get calibrated in databases to reveal every detail and circumstance, but the five words “I feared for my life” will guard you from incarceration, it keeps the planet’s largest prison-industrial complex functioning. And not a one is identified as a terrorist. The exceptional gun fetish in this country has become our deadly obsession.

But maybe I am being too negative. Why not simply believe that we live in a post-racial society? Upon an even and open playing field. Celebrating the soundbites we all learned.

Thanks for reading.

  1. In answer to the question in your title – yes, the guy who slaughtered 51 Muslims at prayer in two Christchurch, NZ, mosques one Friday afternoon in March 2019 was a white Australian, and he was categorised as a terrorist.

    1. Hi Katrina, I apologize for the faulty and ambiguous title. It was a working title but the post went into a different direction. I hate when I do that and very much appreciate your comment.

    2. I have very good friends at a local mosque, they are enormously welcoming gentle humans. I stand in solidarity with you from a country that is more divided than I’ve experienced before. That mosque also welcomed me to their Arabic language courses. 🙂
      Wishing you well always.
