Should blacks be white supremacists?
My heading above will of course expose me to a roar of accusations that I am a white supremacist. I have certainly been accused of that before. I have in print around a hundred academic journal articles on race and racism so I at least qualify as being a racist according to the Leftist lexicon -- which is anyone who mentions race or monkeys. I have mentioned both.
the Left throw around the term "white supremacist" with wild abandon so it is very hard to work out what they mean by it. So varied are the words that provoke such an accusation that it could mean a very wide variety of things. Could it be synonymous with "Good old boy", for instance? It seems possible.
In fact, of course it is not meant to have any particular meaning. It is simply a term of abuse, like S.O.B. It sounds bad and that is enough.
So is there any point in trying to look at what it COULD mean? I personally treat the meaning of words with respect so I think I should at least try. I think there are two possible underlying meanings: Someone who thinks whites ARE supreme and someone who thinks whites SHOULD BE supreme.
And it is reasonable enough to think that whites are supreme in at least some ways. Modern Western civilization and the innovations that drive it is almost entirely the creation of whites. And whites tend not to be good runners or good rappers but in terms of high income and low crime incidence they generally excel in international comparisons. China will no doubt catch up but they are not there yet.
So is there any problem in reporting that factual situation? I can't see it. But Leftists are not concerned with facts of course so I am presumably a villain just for mentioning the facts of the matter.
So then we come to the second type of possible white supremacist: Someone who believes that whites SHOULD BE supreme. But are there any such people? Since whites already are supreme in important ways, what point is there in wishing for such a situation to come about? You can't open a door that is already open. So I can't think that there could be any whites in that category.
But there could be some blacks. What is true of comparisons between countries is also true of comparisons between cities. And it is a byword about what behavioral sinks black-dominated cities in America are -- with huge rates of violent crime, great poverty and urban decay generally. Think Detroit.
So it seems possible that there are some blacks in such cities who would like whites to be fully in charge of their city and enforce white standards of behaviour. There might even be some who pray for that. It's not for me to say that they should but if I were a black living in Detroit, I would.
