Racism = white supremacy. The two are synonymous.
Once you accept that race is "natural" then you reject the idea that it serves anyone in particular.
And that lets you think racism belongs to everyone.
If race is neutral, then so must be the definitions of racism.
Because white scholarship is also presumed neutral and unmarred by "identity politics"
Also a lie.
They are not.
Or why only certain definitions are considered "proper"?
It's about defining the actual concepts.
So the definitions of racism inherently ignore the true nature and purpose of race.
But it is still accepted as neutral and authoritative.
That's why "white" exists.
Whiteness exists to define itself as apart from the rest of humanity and justify privilege
Treating white people as a distinct group with shared privilege is racist though.
When you control language you control discourse.
