White people of all genders being violent is not new in this country, so the usage of “white supremacist” makes it seem like it’s something else rather than white people- white people-ing. They are behaving consistent with the power their whiteness confers.
I can become a trillionaire while my staff makes minimum wage without consequence and people will have this knowledge and still buy from my company #amazon
I can lie and say a black person whistled at me during Jim Crow as a consequence the black person is murdered and I can write a book about how I lied later in life as I’m still alive to tell it with no consequence #carolynbryant
I can choke someone to death on camera for suspicion of selling cigarettes and keep my job to only get suspended from my job five years later with no jail time #DanielPantaleo
I can release countless blatantly racist clothing items, say sorry then hire a black person to do diversity and inclusion training and still be one of the wealthiest fashion designers #Gucci
You can say as a senator “there are a lot of white people who are not racist that felt uncomfortable voting for a black person for the first time” and still keep your job and run for President #BernieSanders
You can run for President while claiming the political system worked as you had lunch and dinner with racist senators in 1973 #JoeBiden
You can say, I’m not a white woman, I’m a faded Black person.” and still be regarded as a famed “diversity educator” #JaneElliott
You can claim Africa is held back by “civilizational problems” and “women having 7-8 children” and still be the president of a colonial imperialist power that pillaged Africa #EmmanuelMacron
The white supremacy culture that white people don’t condemn on a regular basis leads to weekends like this. It’s pre Trump. It’s in your house, its how you treat people in that gentrified neighborhood you live in, in that classroom, non profit. It’s everywhere.
And white people don’t get to separate themselves.
