The time for replacing white supremacy with new values is now. And just as some whites played a part in ending slavery, colonialism, Jim Crow segregation, and South African apartheid, there is surely a role whites can play in restraining other whites in this era. Beneath the sound and fury generated by GOP presidential candidates, Fox News, website trolls, police unions and others, white people are becoming aware as never before of past and present racism.
Admittedly, this encouraging development is hardly the dominant view. To the contrary, given the possibility that Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson or one of their ilk might become president, white supremacist ideology seems to be digging in harder than ever.
I don’t take this lightly. Once upon a time I foolishly thought that there was no way that Ronald Reagan could get elected president. Lesson learned. Now is the time to start contingency planning for intensified resistance to mass deportations of immigrants, atrocities against Muslims and extreme danger to African Americans.
By way of example, a recurring concern of those responding to the Times’ Woodrow Wilson op-ed was, “Where will it all end? Will we have to destroy Mount Rushmore?” some asked. Maybe we should. Not just because it honors slave owners Jefferson and Washington, Mount Rushmore is also a powerful symbol of brutality and racism toward indigenous people.
FK – I’m not ‘racist.’ I recognize my biggest enemies are white “Liberal”(commie) trash that uses key terms and phrases in its mind control propaganda to affect the actions of their simple-minded dupes.
My ‘native American’ ancestors of white and red skin conquered the blood stained lands we take our food and water from. But this should be taught as history not used as an excuse to communize our country.
This lying arrogance won’t cease until we force it to.
Looks like the aliens really are invading:
FK – Even Darth Vader would whip out his light saber for that trash…
FK – At least he’s calling the creatures our enemies. Too bad ‘white men’ aren’t men anymore. The pacification has worked too well. If we had a nation of men the commie newswhores wouldn’t feel safe anywhere in this country or on any other continent.
I think a lot of crime probably isn’t being reported, especially in the larger cities, but guess what skin color that would mostly involve.
