The Real White Racism

Angelina Jolie, apotheosis by race-betrayal

470 words

Racism is universal. Everybody is racist, including non-whites and mainstream whites.

Social conformity and blind obedience to perceived authority—that is to say, prevailing cultural norms—powerfully define the form of racism that predominates.

In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries anti-white racism has ruled the roost. It expresses directly as prejudice, discrimination, hatred, violence, and genocide, and indirectly through the social and legal privileging of non-whites and perceiving and depicting them as superior.

Whites are at least as susceptible to anti-white racism as they were previously to outward-directed racism. This is an observable fact.

Psychologically whites employ dissociation in this connection. They are not racist—other whites are. Not one white in a million takes it personally when whites as a group are ridiculed, maligned, defamed, discriminated against, jailed, or murdered. In their minds, someone else is being given the what for.

Even less do whites perceive that they are encompassed with every maligned subgroup: Nazis, Germans, Europeans, South Africans, colonialists, Southerners, segregationists, racists, businessmen, jocks, fraternity boys, WASPs, rednecks, hillbillies, hicks, Klansmen, Christians, blondes. In the racist arena, these are all just code words for white.

Indeed, anti-white values are experienced by whites as morally redemptive. Racism imparts a strong sense of moral superiority, if it is directed against whites.

More subtly, anti-white racism may be expressed by ignoring (literally refusing to see or acknowledge) dominant and pervasive hatred and discrimination while simultaneously elevating and glorifying non-whites ethically, aesthetically, and emotionally. Obviously, for non-whites to be superior, or victims, somebody else must be inferior, or oppressors—even if only implicitly.

Whites’ racism thus does not seem to be grounded primarily in either fear or self-loathing. On the contrary, it appears to create a subjective halo around their heads, imparting a gratifying sense of holiness: freedom from sin.

Whites’ racism strikes me as deeply immoral. But I may be virtually alone in evaluating human social behavior primarily in moral terms.

At the very least, today’s racism is unprincipled—it is logically inconsistent. No one, anywhere, genuinely eschews racism. They merely reject the kind of racism that is exclusively talked about.

Finally, the refusal to see or acknowledge anti-white racism may be a function of an innate (or acquired?) idealist-monist-universalist psychological outlook. A true belief in oneness impels adherents to believe that every human being on earth is ultimately the identical expression of divine Love, or universal Spirit, that they are. (Typically monists deny the reality of evil.) Equalitarianism also has its roots in this point of view.

Monism among whites need not be, and often is not, Christian. But it can be.

Again, from a principled perspective oneness would require whites to care at least as much about their fellow whites as they do about non-whites. But, objectively, it does not have such an effect.

    I’m not trying to self promote here, but I wrote a paper that relates to this very subject: http://www.kinism.net/publications/tkr_summer_2010.pdf

      Andrew Hamilton made an excellent point that serves our conversation well.

      In reply, let me priase the tremedous work being done by the people at spiritwaterblood and kinism for demonstrating how very well the Christianity that defined the West at its best is totally supportive of our position.

      Indeed, as critics of what Christianity has become at the Institutional level, they are second to none of us.

      That brings us to political effectiveness, and another (yet another!) structural failure of the self-defined White Nationalists.

      I have not seen such hatred of Christianity outside of Judaism. Indeed, their hatred for all things (however nominally) Christian places them alongside the Jews, working in common purpose.

      Speaking against Christianity in American politics guarantees you will never experience the thrill of victory, without being able to define your ideology, save in the most vague and intellectually flaccid manner.

      Christian Monism, incidentally, is pretty much a contradiction in terms.

      This working against itself helps to explain why Institutional Christianity is failing; it is where the perversion of equalitarianism, as Christian Momism’s temporal Aspect, reigns supreme.

      We can learn from this.

    A common theme in the 19th century among the struggling Christian world was a denial of the Christian principal of original sin. Original sin had become to be seen as too pessimistic. This belief in a humanity without limitations is at the heart of our problem.

      You are so right. Perfectly expressed; thank you.

    “Not one white in a million takes it personally when whites as a group are ridiculed, maligned, defamed, discriminated against, jailed, or murdered. In their minds, someone else is being given the what for.”

    Perhaps, but there are two alternate interpretations of the general rule that whites are nearly impossible to insult racially, both of which better explain it imo: 1. White people are temperamentally different from most other peoples in that they’re less sensitive to ridicule. 2. A NAM trying to racially insuIt a white is like Snoop Doggy Dogg saying, “Beethoven ain’t shit”.

    I don’t know that whites are temperamentally different in terms of their reaction to ridicule. Rather, their sense of collective identity has been effectively dissolved. They dissociate. They don’t connect themselves with the idea of whiteness. I remember Jared Taylor quoting a female columnist (probably Maggie Gallagher) to the effect that she thought of herself as Irish, and occasionally as Catholic, but never as white. The latter she considered insulting.

    If you go to your local Wal-Mart or watch any episode of Cops you’ll see plenty of whites who differ little from blacks or Third World riff-raff and routinely mingle with them as equals socially, sexually, and intellectually.

    And yes, mainstream Christianity has largely abandoned the idea of original sin (which is probably good–that viewpoint often inculcated pathology in whites who took it to heart) and, for that matter, of Hell. Those who do believe in Hell often state that there is no one in it. Theologians in the Jesus Seminar voted on which sayings of Christ are “genuine” (=PC) and not genuine (=PI).

    And so on.
