White Supremacy Is A Religion

215Sunday is the most cherished day in Christendom, it is worth reminding you about the importance of white supremacy, which is rooted in religion. So you must understand that words have meaning and that the dominant society changes the meaning of words and uses these words to justify the wretchedness they try to hide. This shows how they used religion to indoctrinate people to accept slavery; then and now! Imagery is important, so they have an image to remind you that even Jesus is white and that they run things, everything, up to and including your black life.

For example, the so-called Founding Fathers who most owned slaves and supported the institution of slavery. Or when they changed the word nigger, which their forefathers created and used almost as a second language, to the N-word there was not one black person’s input or sanctioned it. It was merely their way of saying the word while still using the word to not appearing racist.

They confuse us with words. You never hear those of the other hue mention or say the word white supremacy although they are taught to maintain the system, which gives them benefits. They will use, and so do we, the word racism but racism is a byproduct of white supremacy. They are taught; each one of them that the system is designed to protect the system, which is rooted in what they call manifest destiny; whereby they believe God gave the white race domain over the earth and everything in it.

By “white supremacy” I do not mean to allude only to the self-conscious racism of white supremacist hate groups. I refer instead to a political, economic and cultural system in which whites overwhelmingly control power and material resources, conscious and unconscious ideas of white superiority and entitlement are widespread. Meaning these relations are designed for white dominance, and non-white subordination is the key to entrenched in the minds daily across a broad array of institutions and all parts of America society.

White supremacy is a racist ideology centered upon the belief, and promotion of the belief, that white people are superior in certain characteristics, traits, and attributes to people of other racial backgrounds and that, therefore, white people should politically, economically and socially rule non-white people. In other words, being white is an attitude rooted in privilege!

The term is also typically used to describe a political ideology that perpetuates and maintains the social, political, historical and/or industrial domination by white people, as evidenced by historical and contemporary socio-political structures such as the Atlantic slave trade, Jim Crow laws in the United States, segregation, and apartheid. Different forms of white supremacism put forth different conceptions of who is considered white, and different white supremacists identify various racial and cultural groups as their primary enemy. White supremacist groups have typically opposed people of color, immigrants, Jews, and Catholics.

In academic usage, particularly in usage drawing on critical race theory, the term “white supremacy” can also refer to a political or socio-economic system like the Republican Party ideals, where white people enjoy a structural advantage (privilege) over other ethnic groups, both at a collective and an individual level.

White supremacy has its ideological foundations that at least date back to 17th-century scientific racism, the predominant paradigm of human variation that helped shape international and intranational relations from the latter part of the in European history through the late 20th century and particularly with the election of a black president and shrinking white population.

White supremacy was dominant in the United States even after the American Civil War and also decades after the Reconstruction Era. In large areas of the U.S., this included the holding of non-whites, specifically African Americans in chattel slavery with millions of black people denied freedom from bondage. The outbreak of the Civil War saw the desire to uphold the Confederate States of America to which the Confederate flag is their symbol of this ideal. Author L. Frank Baum wrote: “The Whites, by law of conquest, by the justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent” and all non-white people on the stolen land.

Since the founding of the United States when the right to vote was restricted to white men of property, Professor Leland T. Saito of USC writes: “Throughout the history of the United States race has been used by whites for legitimizing and creating difference and social, economic and political exclusion.” The Naturalization Act of 1790 limited U.S. citizenship to whites only. The denial of social and political freedom continued into the mid-20th century resulting in the Civil Rights Movement.

This idea and concepts were put forth on the world stage through Nazism, which promoted the idea of a superior Aryan race in Germany during the early 20th century. Notions of white supremacy and Aryan racial superiority were combined in the 19th century, with white supremacists maintaining that white people were members of an Aryan “master race,” which is superior to other races. There were other regimes who practiced white supremacy, most notably South Africa’s Apartheid system, but all nation headed by Europeans have and do Covet the ideal.

The term white supremacy is used in academic studies of racial power to denote a system of structural or societal racism which privileges white people over others, regardless of the presence or absence of racial hatred. White racial advantage permeates the American system to the point that most are blind and unconscious of its presence. Black people, in particular, are feed a steady diet of it, and they use of divide and conquer – is its most effective strategy! You hear them say, they want to take back their country – what do you think they mean? And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
