First, let’s look at what white supremacy is understood to be: the belief, theory, or doctrine that white people are inherently superior to other racial groups and therefore should politically, economically and socially rule non-whites.
This is said to go back to America’s founding – whites made blacks slaves, abused Native Americans and Christianized (how horrible!) racial minorities.
Whites had historical advantages that lasted well beyond slavery into Jim Crow and supposedly even now, say strident black activists. This translated into better educational and economic opportunities as well as the transfer of generational wealth.
There is certainly truth in this, but two points must be made:
None of this history explains the crime and rampant immorality that permeates the black community today. Even though blacks had it tough during Jim Crow, black families were intact and crime was relatively low, because blacks then, for the most part, were a moral people. Today the overall American illegitimacy rate is about 33 percent (26 percent for whites). For blacks, it’s over 70 percent – approximately three times the level of black out of wedlock births that existed when the War on Poverty began in 1964!
This is 2015, people! Since Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” began there has been a massive wealth transfer to black Americans in the form of welfare and other handouts. And affirmative action, designed to grant special consideration to minorities and women in employment and education, has given blacks unprecedented advantages. Today it’s safe to say that if “white privilege” (which supposedly flows from “white supremacy”) were weighed against “black privilege,” there’s really no comparison. And the above advantages don’t even scratch the surface of the social advantages of being black today.
