“The biggest terror threat in this country is white men, and we have to start doing something about them,” said Don Lemon on CNN. For his daily anti-white rants, Lemon reportedly earns $4 million per year. He is not the only TV “journalist” who hates white people. “[Kyle Rittenhouse is] being prosecuted in front of a nearly all-white jury, before a white judge in a country where white vigilantism is often excused, if not worshipped,” said Joy Reid on MSNBC. “This country was built on the idea that white men have a particular kind of freedom that only they have.”
Lemon and Reid typify a new breed of black TV reporters who specialize in overt racial attacks on White America, accusing it of being the number one problem facing the nation. “Joy Reid is a racist sociopath,” wrote Miranda Devine in the New York Post. “Every night she spews hatred against white people. Shame on MSNBC for elevating such a hate-filled racist to prime time.”
If white reporters made similar attacks on Black America, they would be convicted of white supremacy and fired immediately. How is Reid getting away with her attacks on White America without losing her job? “For some unfathomable reason,” says Devine, “she has Teflon protection at the network.” That protection derives from a new element in the American social landscape, black supremacy. The acceptance of anti-white slurs made by Lemon and Reid serve as proof that black supremacy has more clout than white supremacy.
Not only do we have nonstop reporting from the media about white supremacy, even the president has complained about it. The reality is just the opposite. For at least ten years, we have been witnessing open season on white people. A big scandal occurred when a New York Times editorial board member tweeted “cancel white people.” Political commentator Bill O’Reilly said the racist tweet was consistent with the Times’ editorial philosophy that “white men have destroyed the country.” It comes as no surprise to anyone who has been watching current social trends. Today’s Caucasians, especially males, are being demonized and marginalized by the Left and its media enablers. The Left, says author Ben Shapiro, wants to portray America as “an incurable mass of bigoted whites.” If white supremacy existed, this would never happen.
The tables have turned. Instead of whites being accorded special privileges as in the past, what we are witnessing now is black supremacy. “More whites have begun talking about themselves as a racially oppressed majority,” reports CNN. “In a widely publicized 2011 survey, white Americans said they suffer from racial discrimination more than blacks.” African-Americans are accorded special treatment across the board. “Blackness has become a tremendous asset in contemporary America,” says Ben Shapiro. “Victim status is treasured in America, and black skin guarantees automatic victim status.”
Being black today, Shapiro concludes, grants privileges ranging from landing coveted college scholarships to affirmative action hiring quotas to corporate diversity training that portrays blacks in a positive light and whites negatively…and to the toleration of racist TV reporters like Lemon and Reid. It even applies to the White House, says David Horowitz, author of Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream. “Barack Obama was an inexperienced presidential candidate,” says Horowitz, “who wouldn’t be elected dogcatcher if he wasn’t black.”
A blaring example of black supremacy can be found in today’s television commercials. Blacks comprise 12 percent of the population but appear in 90 percent of commercials. It has been suggested that a person arriving from another planet would assume after watching the tube that most of the U.S. population must be black. Diversity is one thing, but this is overcompensation driven by black supremacy.
A more insidious example of black supremacy arose after a number of Asians were assaulted in New York, San Francisco, and other cities. An attempt was made by the Left to blame the attacks on white supremacy, despite the undisputed fact that all of the reported assaults were perpetrated by blacks. One might reasonably ask, how can this be white supremacy if blacks were responsible? An answer was offered by Colorado college professor Jennifer Ho: “Anti-Asian racism has the same source as anti-black racism: white supremacy. So when a black person attacks an Asian person, the encounter is fueled perhaps by racism, but very specifically by white supremacy. White supremacy does not require a white person to perpetuate it.”
Really? When a black person commits a crime, black supremacy often succeeds in relieving that person of responsibility by blaming white people who had nothing to do with it. A similar argument has been offered as proof that the Rittenhouse shootings were motivated by white supremacy, despite the fact that all of the victims were white. Biden himself called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist. If whiteness were supreme, no one would dare to point a finger at Rittenhouse regardless of his motives.
The notion of white supremacy gained currency because leftists have blamed whites for most of the problems afflicting the black community. Wall Street Journal editorial board member Jason Riley, who is black, has accused civil rights leaders of being more interested in “blaming the problems of blacks on white racism” than getting to the real causes. If we wanted to be truthful about the causes of social disruption in the U.S., we would have to point a finger not at White America but rather at the African-American community itself. In spite of a continuing history of violence, blacks are not being held accountable for their behavior. It is not politically correct to criticize African-Americans, and if you attempt to do so, you are automatically labeled a racist. There is no question that blacks lag behind other groups in economic success, safe neighborhoods, education, and family cohesiveness. The question is, who or what is responsible?
The Left insists that the blame belongs squarely on the shoulders of white people. Not so, says David Horowitz. It is not white privilege that’s preventing blacks from doing better, Horowitz argues. It is African-American behavior, such as the propensity to commit violent crimes, the inability to build more intact families, and the unwillingness to accept personal responsibility. Black women do not take responsibility for having children out of wedlock and black fathers do not take responsibility for supporting their children. Many teenagers in the black subculture hold themselves back by deliberately rejecting mainstream “white” values. This self-destructive behavior—not white privilege—is ruining the lives of millions of black kids, says Horowitz. So far, black supremacy has succeeded in hiding this reality under the radar.
“A doctrine of black supremacy,” said Martin Luther King, “is as dangerous as a doctrine of white supremacy.” It would be nice to get rid of both of them. How to do it is the difficult question.
