Time to Stop the White Supremacy Narrative

Time to Stop the White Supremacy Narrative

In a nation of over 330,000,000 people, I imagine that there are a few White people who hate Black People.  I have bumped into a few of them over my years in my hometown of Chicago.  Contrary to left-wing political rhetoric, most of them were Democrats – and a few were Democrat officeholders.

I was witness – and fought against – the systemic racism of the Democrat political machine. The very systemic racism that brought Martin Luther King to Chicago.  The Windy City was the most racist AND yet the most Democrat city in America.  I never viewed that as a coincidence.  After years of civil rights activism and research, I learned that Chicago was not only not unique, it was typical of most of our major cities with segregated, impoverished Black populations.

I have also come across a few Black folks who hated White People.  But for reasons that defy all logic and common sense, I’ve been told that Blacks are not capable of racism.  That is the contorted interpretation of the liberal academic community.

I have a much simpler view.  If a person – any person – hates another based on their race – or even some other ethnic classification — that is racism … period.  There are White folks who hate Hispanics – even those the government categorizes as White Hispanics.  White folks who hate all sorts of Asians.

BUT … and that is a BIG BUT … there are Black folks who hate Hispanics – and those who hate Asians.  If you do not believe that you have never spent any time among minority groups in the inner cities.  There are some Asians who hate Blacks.  And around and around it goes.

For the most part, this level of personal racism is kept in the background.  Those who harbor it are not generally confrontational. And only express their negative feelings among those they believe to be like-minded.  They do not engage in or condone violence.  And they are still a very small proportion of the population so their private feelings have limited impact.

It is true, however, that small numbers of the most virulent haters ban together to express their hatred more openly. And in the most extreme cases, more violently.  These are the nut cases that arise out of the evil of identity politics – which is the doctrine of disunity that is at the root of virtually all conflict.  Why the left embraces and promotes it is imponderable.

BUT … to make things perfectly clear, we must understand that those with motivational hatred based on race or ethnic tribalism are among the very few among us.  I can count my own encounters with them over many, many years without needing more than the fingers and toes I possess.  And in terms of those who would do or condone violence, I have never met one – not one.  I have seen them on television, so I know they do exist, but not in great numbers among the people.

I have seen the hateful White supremacy shooter at Mother Emanual AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  And also, I saw the reports of Black men assassinating White police officers. Unfortunately, the vile actions of a few sociopaths blind us to the tolerant views of the people in general – because the evil actions are dramatic and are used to incite division by politically motivated race baiters.

The vast, vast, vast, majority of Americans get along with each other very well.  We actually enjoy the company of each other.  We love to embrace diverse cultures and customs. Even though the loony left considers that a form of racism they call “ethnic appropriation.”  Billions of times every day we interact in peace, harmony and friendship.

Democrats and the left have advanced another bogus theory that we White people are cowering in fear that this nation will soon become a majority-minority country.  That folks who are not White will attain positions of leadership.  They claim that changes in demographics are threatening what they call “White supremacy” – a political boogeyman that does not exist in the hearts of the huge majority of White folks.

To the left, EVERYTHING is about race and racism. 

The Democrats’ theory seems to be based on their own historic imposition of White supremacy in the days of Jim Crow. And in their more recent obnoxious invention of identity politics.  Their identity-based narratives assume that we are all members and defenders of some tribal class that is eternally in competition – at war — with other tribal classes.

Even as one of those dreaded older White males, I do not seem to fit into the Democrats stereotype. And neither do all the other older White males I know.  If I do belong to a political tribe, it is bonded by my conservative beliefs.  It is a political belief that is competitive – fighting against those who believe in powerful government run by elitists – but not violently.  I seek camaraderie and leadership from conservatives of every background – race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation.  At the same time, I enjoy close friendships with people who do not share my conservative views.

The idea that White America is driven by a primal fear that people with darker skin will seize power is absurd and utterly dishonest.  We do fear those who would transform our bottom-up Republic into a top-down autocracy – regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

In that political competition, I gladly work with and for folks of every background with conservative values – and in opposition with those on the opposite side of the political continuum.  It is the issues, not the skin color that matters.  I suspect the left spins it to skin color because they cannot win on the really important stuff – the issues.

So, there ’tis.

    In a country of 330M, you think there are a few whites who hate blacks? Southern Poverty Law Center lists 917 hate groups, 450 (roughly 50 percent) are white supremacist organizations. That number includes 100 white nationalist groups, 78 racist skinhead, 99 neo-Nazi, 43 neo-confederate and 130 Ku Klux Klan chapters. Figure these groups are 20 or more, and that’s 20,000 to start with. There are roughly 18000 various police forces in this country, and while “most” of them are good people, there are usually several (or sometimes a lot more) with some history of racist behaviors on the job (and that would be ignoring off the job behavior. Hell, even on Fox news, there are a half-dozen or so who regularly spout some really awful racist things to their 3.5M regular viewers, who haven’t decided that FOX is too racist to watch. 80M people voted for Trump, despite his constant racist rhetoric and actions during his campaign and presidency. So, a few? Maybe as much as a third of the country? Let’s take an educated guess and call it 20%, about the size of Trump’s really hardcore supporters.

    And you continue to dishonestly point out that Democrats in years gone by were racists, just to bash today’s Democrats. You know, of course, that back in the 50’s and 60’s, when you were somewhat relevant in politics, EVERYBODY in the USA was racist. Democrats in the South were particularly racist, but EVERYBODY in the south was racist, but the Democrats mostly held power there (as well as in a lot of the Midwest, including Chicago). At some point, somewhere between Nixon and Reagan, the Republicans created their “Southern strategy”, making racist policies part of Republican platforms, and within a couple of years, the WHOLE SOUTH converted to the Republican party. Most non-racists (and blacks and minorities) have moved into the Democratic party. It’s both dishonest and disingenuous to continue to paint the Democrats as racists because of that history, and especially considering the expansion of the Republican Party under Trump into full-blown open racist and white supremacist ideology.

    And why would you think there are NOT blacks who hate whites? Police are following rules that allow them to harass, injure, and murder minorities with almost no consequences. Even with the Floyd verdict last week, 3 more blacks were killed by police shootings in the past week. They have a long history of suffering in this country, from abduction from their homelands, to slavery, to slave patrols to keep them from traveling, to lynchings (even into the 1960’s, 100 years after the end of slavery), to sundown laws in many towns in the US, to institutional bias in banking, employment, and the law. We should be more surprised that they have endured what they have without totally turning against whites.

    Not “everything” the Democrats do is about racism, but everything from now on has to consider it. Trump managed to write racism into many laws and government policy rules, and Biden has spent his first 100 days rooting that out. But Democrats are also fixing Trump’s handouts to rich corporations, his weakening of environmental laws (including lots of handouts to old and tired polluting industries), repairing relationships with our allies around the world, fixing the infrastructure that Trump ignored for 4 years (despite his almost weekly claims “this is infrastructure week”), and bringing back the US as a leader for human rights around the world.

    YOU see “too much” talk about race because YOU are racist, and don’t want to upset the racist policies put in place by EX-president (and future jailbird) Trump. You continue to fight against Democrats because you think you’re a Conservative – yes, racism is the way things have always been done, but that’s not what conservatism means.

    If the Republicans were really conservative, they would be investing in the future, not trying to remain in the past. That means investing in people, spending funds to give more people more opportunity to be better contributors to society, conserving natural resources, spending more on energy research so we don’t run out (instead of trying to use up every last drop of oil and polluting the air and water), making sure we have efficient roads, rail, internet, and communications infrastructure, maximizing relationships around the world and minimizing wars and the resulting famines, Spending money on these things is like paying insurance, except not for profit, but rather for the general welfare of society. In other words, everything Biden is doing, and Republican conservatives are fighting. Yes, it costs a little money now, but A) US interest rates are at all-time lows, so it’s not a huge burden to the future, and B) it will cost WAY more in the future to fix these problems when they are crises.

      Now for all that hot speech, where is your racial Outlook? No matter how many words you write,I still see the racialist leaning. Reality, as long as there are different races, there will be racism. Period! Kindness and respect and love goes beyond all that nonsense and overcomes! Always has and always will.

      Let’s assume your number of 20,000 “alleged White racists” is low by a factor of ten. In a nation of 330 million people, that puts the racists around 0.066% of the total population. If you assume only Whites can be racist, that increases that percentage to about one tenth of one percent. It amazes me that so few actually take the facts and do the math.

    You think there are a “few” people who hate minorities in a population of 330M? The southern Poverty Law Center lists 917 hate groups, 450 (roughly 50 percent) are white supremacist organizations. That number includes 100 white nationalist groups, 78 racist skinhead, 99 neo-Nazi, 43 neo-confederate and 130 Ku Klux Klan chapters. At 20 or 30 members each, that would be 20-30 thousand, but some of these organizations alone have thousands of members. Membership in these organizations grew by over 50% during Trump’s campaign and presidency. There are 18000 law enforcement agencies in the US, and most of them have a few, if not dozens, of “bad-apple” cops with a history of racist violence against civilians. Thousands of military personnel are members of racist websites. 80M people voted for Trump, despite his constant racist statements during his campaign and presidency. So, a few? More like somewhere between 10’s of thousands and 30% of the population. As an educated guess, I would call it about 20%, roughly the size of Trump’s hard-core supporters, since he made it abundantly clear what he stood for.

    As you often do, you’re repeating the dishonest bashing of Democrats for being racist based on the 1960’s, when you were a little relevant in Chicago politics. During that time EVERYBODY in the US was racist. The Democrats held power in the South and parts of the Midwest, including Chicago, but racist policies were the norm for the whole country. Sometime between Nixon and Reagan, Republicans created their “southern strategy” to appeal to really racist people, and the whole South converted almost overnight. Less racist people and pretty much all minorities ended up in the Democratic Party. So the core of your Republican party is racists who REALLY want to be racist. For you to use 1960’s standards to bash the current Democratic part is dishonest and disingenuous, but you (and other writers on this website) do it often. Are you so hard up for slander against Democrats that you have to repeat this lie on a weekly basis?

    Given the history that minorities have had in this country – kidnapped from their original homelands, put into slavery in the US and other places, slave patrols to keep them from migrating around, lynchings (as late as the 1960s, 100 years after slavery ended), Jim Crow laws, sundown laws enforced by local police, bias written into banking and employment laws and government regulations, and the continuing of beatings and murders of minorities by police around this country – I’m surprised that blacks don’t hate whites a lot more than they do. For some reason, blacks are much more loving people than whites are. Even with the Floyd verdict last week, 3 more blacks were killed by police in the past week (including within a half-hour of the verdict). Why am I surprised that you don’t want to hear about that? Racists blame the victim – “oh, he was struggling because he couldn’t breath, so he deserved what he got” or “the penalty for kids fighting on the street is 4 shots from a police officer”, or “oops, sorry, my bad, but you shouldn’t have been out after sundown”, “the penalty for being a smart ass to a white cop is DEATH”…

    YOU think there is too much talk about race by Democrats because YOU are a racist. Biden has spent his first 100 days extricating Trump’s racism from laws, government policies, and department rules. Everything from now on has to consider racism, for future legislation to be fair to all people of our country. Government is for ALL of the people in this country, whether white or minority, rich or poor, citizen or not, and unfortunately racists have had the upper hand in writing laws for the last 250+ years. Biden has also started working on infrastructure spending that Trump ignored (remember, almost every week was “infrastructure week”, but nothing ever even got proposed?), environmental regulations to stop the give-aways to coal and oil industries and ensure that people have clean air and water in the future, fixing relations with our allies around the world, making the US a leader in human rights again (which was hard to do with an openly racist President who embraced white nationalist groups), and becoming the leading example of democracy in the world (ditto corrupt Trump and his treasonous stain on our history of non-violent transfer of power).

    To Republicans and Conservatives, racism is the way things have always been done, and they want it to continue that way. A “real” conservative would invest in policies that allow everyone to participate in the workforce and become the best that they can be, like more education and more equality in the workplace. Federal health care would allow workers to be more mobile and allow new business to pop up that aren’t stifled by insurance premiums. They would recognize climate change (settled science) and invest in energy research to become less dependent on resources like oil and coal that will eventually run out, and pollute the air and water that we need to sustain life. Even if you don’t believe in climate change, there are good reasons to invest in R&D and efficiency. Spending funds on that now is the prudent and conservative (with a little “c”) approach – A) interest rates are at an all time low, so it won’t have a huge negative impact on future economy (and most investment in infrastructure has a positive impact), B) the things that have been ignored for the last 20 years will cost WAY more to fix than what it costs now if we wait another generation C) it’s like insurance, except it’s for the general welfare of society – if we don’t spend money now, really bad things could end up happening, and D) it’s the right thing to do, for all citizens.

    That’s why YOU, the Republican Party, and Conservatives are the real racists, and fighting everything the Democrats are doing. I’m sorry that hearing about racism offends you, but it’s a problem that has to be fixed, and ignoring it has only made it worse.

    Well said Larry, I’m tired of the dishonest media and the left pushing the racism and haters that exists mostly in their hearts.

    We can certainly get along if we chose to and celebrate our diversity. But that requires competition in the marketplace of ideas and the lefts ideology can’t do that. Too many like Crump and Sharpton and Jackson profit from the division.

    Constant riots in cities like Chicago and Minneapolis and Portland (not a lot of white Supremacists in any of those cities) and the demands for mob justice and the destruction of our institutions. Sadly this hurts most those in the inner cities that can’t leave like the BLM founder who has gotten HER entire family out into super white areas while giving little or nothing to those who has purported to raise money for.

    Like you the vast majority of the racists I’ve met have been from the left, the inability to see anything in other than racial terms. Fortunately we have people like Candace Owens and Thomas Sowell and Brandon Tatum who are pushing back. The truth is out there and is being found even with a dishonest media. Keep the faith, only we can know what is in our hearts.

    Mr. Bruder, I’m sorry to say that it is you, based upon your post, that is offended when hearing about racism – especially in the historical context about democrats. It is you that fails to recognize that investments in clean energy has grown significantly over the past twenty years. It is you that somehow thinks that progressives have cornered the market on climate change and that it is settled science (so there is no need to study the topic further, we should just implement the Green New Deal as written – right). Remember, the EPA was established under Nixon.

    Look, Democrats have a history of racism, not just from the 1960’s – but try from before the 1860s. So I can understand now they are all woke today and on a mission to eradicate that legacy – but that doesn’t make everyone else a racist. Oh, and that “southern strategy” worked so well, that President Bill Clinton was able to win several southern states both in 1992 and 1996…well after Reagan. Your history lesson has many errors, but that is one obvious example.

    As far as what President Biden is doing – it is still way too early to tell how successful he will be. I suspect many of the administration’s initiatives will not get beyond congress. For example, infrastructure has been a topic for many administrations – the difficulty is figuring out how to pay for it.

    Bottom line – your claim that Republicans are the real racists, because they are fighting against what Democrats are doing, is just nonsense – if only because not everything Democrats are fighting for are somehow the best and only way forward.

      Edgar, I couldn’t agree more with you that it’s time for Democrats to own up to the racism of their past. It was systemic and horrible! It is far past time to eradicate any evidence of the atrocities Democrats committed.

      We need to quit honoring the racist bigots with statues in the public square. Tear them down and replace them with progressive republicans that fought for the freedom of slaves! We need to educate our children of Democrats racist past and the evil they perpetrated on people of color so that it never happens again.
      I am so glad that you have the open mindedness to recognize that we must honor the hero’s that helped to free slaves and save our democracy!
      I think placing Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill is a great place to start. That way every time you pay for something using that bill, it’ll remind the user of the racism our Country was founded on!
      Public statues of the Confederacy, made up of Democrats should immediately removed and the public educated!
      It is refreshing to read such ideas on a conservative website! Thank you Edgar.

      While it’s not relevant to this conversation, I find it rich that you seem to be proud that investments in renewable energy have grown significantly in the last 20 years. Yes, Nixon’s only major accomplishments were environment related, but Republicans (at the behest of oil and coal interests have been consistently tried to dismantle them ever since. Remember who put solar panels on the White House, and who took them off? Republicans have fought clean and renewable energy tooth and nail since at least Reagan.

      Again, irrelevant, but Clinton was from the South, was popular, and was a very inspiring candidate – that gave him an edge in the South, and being a Democrat gave him an edge in a lot of the rest of the country. That doesn’t mean there was no southern strategy. Look it up. Look up the Party make-up of the south – it changed in the late 60’s and early 70’s from almost all-Democrat to all-Republican in a few years. I don’t deny that Democrats were racist before that time, but the Republicans have actively courted racists since that time. Even after the Civil war, there was a lot of racism in both North and South even as they abolished slavery. And anyone who didn’t see how racist Trump was and how his racist followers came out into the open during his term have shut their eyes and covered their ears. I’ve seen Horist beating up on Democrats many times about the pre-1960’s racism while ignoring the racist of conservative and Christian Republicans TODAY. Nobody can fix the racism of 50 years ago, but to bring up racism of a different era is disingenuous, made even worse by ignoring or denying the racism of their own party.

    Dang Larry, I want to live in your world! In my world, I am in a minority in my belief that all men are created equal. I grew up in a melting pot city and the adults generally did a decent job of hiding their racism around us kids. My parents were amazing at beating it into our mindset that we treat everyone with respect. Me being significantly taller than most, lead me to play basketball in a largely diverse medium sized city. My parents always welcomed my basketball friends, regardless of their race and treated them like family.
    It wasn’t until I joined the military that I realized that not everyone thought the way I thought. That became even more evident when after my commitment, I was hired as a safety service provider in the city I grew up in. Holy cow were my eyes opened to just how racist the old white guys could be.
    As circumstances change, we have been afforded the opportunity to buy a large plot of land in the country. Wow, given my neighbors and community members at large in this rural area, you’d think I moved to the ol’ south.
    Like you said, me being a financially comfortable middle aged white guy, I guess people feel comfortable in expressing their hatred of our fellow man.
    With that in mind, given your black grandson and obviously open mind toward race, isn’t more likely that people tend to hide their racism around you, rather than racism doesn’t exist? This story is very antidotal as opposed to the facts. “ If I don’t see a lot of racism, it must not exists!”

In fact, on biographer referred to Johnson as the “connoisseur” of the n-word. But that is ancient history.. Like you, id do not tolerate the use of the word in my presence — and happy to say that I cannot recall it being used in my thousands of conversations with conservative voters and leaders.

      You and double-posting Bruder are the only ones who claim racism is in everything.

      None use or hint at the n-word except you.

      You undermine your own argument when you make false statements and straw men.

        Thinkr, I mean Larry, Nam Vet has used the word at least twice in different articles. I’ll give him credit where credit is due, he had enough common sense not to use that word in a post saying that racism by whites is almost non existent. Honestly, I’m shocked.

        But, I’m with you, policies that promote division and strife are not in the best interests of Americans. Which policies would you suggest we change?
        I assure you that I do not post under any other name on this site. Look, even on a site that caters to the Caucasian caucus, Larry’s rants just aren’t reflective of a large portion of his readers, let alone with the population at large. That’s why you guys only won the popular vote once in the last 36 yrs.

          Aha …. so Ben, you admit you sent me on a meaningless goose chase by falsely intimating that one of the responders used the n-word on this site. Shame on you.

            Larry,
            You are alright with your readers using the phrase “dumb ass ni**ers”?
            It wasn’t a goose chase. You say that in the City I have lived my entire life in and you’re catching fists or a bullet.. or a can of twisted tea

        I apologize for the double post – new computer with a touchy keyboard. But the website gives you no indication if the post has gone through or not… Sometimes it just disappears for an hour or so, and I sigh and retype it… then an hour later, both show up.

        If you’re protesting being called a racist, then you’re probably a racist. If you think that blacks who get beat up or killed by police deserve what they get, you’re probably a racist. At least 4 unarmed blacks were killed in the last week or so, and you wonder why they complain that police are racist? And then wonder why they consider you racist, while you protest (too much) that you don’t have a racist bone in your body?

    Larry, I was just notified that my last comment was awaiting approval by a moderator. There were no swear words, nor did I attack any of your readers. In fact, I completely agreed with Edgar’s assessment of Democrats culpability in the segregated south and agreed Democrats should be held accountable.
    As a vocal advocate of free speech, I was shocked to find out that you would consider censoring a post. What gives?

      I do not control the site, but if it were in the business of political censorship, you would not be given so much space. Duh!

        Larry, Hmmm, thank you for admitting that. It demonstrates that your articles are fake outrage, and not sincerely held beliefs. You wrote an entire article about censorship the other day and then in the comments admit that you’d like to limit my speech. Honestly, I’m not really surprised.
        Not to mention, this site invited me here, I did not come looking for a biased echo chamber to spend my free time reading, but you bought my email from somewhere. I thought you wanted diverse opinions, why else would you advertise your site to me?
