White Supremacy Is All About False Imagery

Racism/White Supremacy specializes in false image and idolatry, ensuring White people are seen as concerned citizens, pretty young White beauty pageant contestants, White children of White Presidents, and covered, anonymous klansmen instead of gang members born and raised in the gang called racism/White Supremacy. Racism/White Supremacy is the epitome of a gang. It has every characteristic. The only problem is the government has never chosen to go after racism/White Supremacy because it would have to indict itself, and we all know that ain’t never about to happen.

According To Our Government, White Supremacy Fits The Legal Definition of A Gang

The federal definition of a gang as used by the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement could definitely encompass White Supremacy. Gang characteristics include:

  1. Members collectively identifying themselves by adopting a group identity, then using it to create an atmosphere of fear or intimidation, frequently by employing one or more of the following: a common name, slogan, identifying sign, symbol, tattoo or other physical markings, style or color of clothing, hairstyle, hand sign or graffiti. It doesn’t matter if they call themselves the Proud Boys, 3 Percenters, Ku Klux Klan, the Boogaloo Boys, Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy, Republicans, Democrats, Progressives, Liberals, Libertarians, the Federalist Society, Nazis, Fox News, Red/Blue States, Red/Blue Districts, or the Heritage Foundation, they all have words, symbols, costumes, clothing, and/or hand gestures used to intimidate Blacks while informing other racists/White Supremacists they are present and on their jobs. White folks tend to only think of Black and Brown folks as gangbangers, but White folks have been engaging in racist/White Supremacist gang activities for a long time.
  2. Its purpose in part is to engage in criminal activity and which uses violence or intimidation to further its criminal objectives. Well, I don’t need to tell you how racism/White Supremacy has engaged in all sorts of criminal activities to remain in power. It uses violence against non-Whites and Whites alike to maintain power by any means necessary to maintain its criminal objectives of domination, subjugation, and extermination.
  3. Members engage in criminal activity or acts of juvenile delinquency that if committed by an adult would be crimes with the intent to enhance or preserve the association’s power, reputation, or economic resources. White kids uphold racism/White Supremacy when they go to school and harass and physically abuse Black kids simply for being different. They end up becoming President of the United States (see Donald J. Trump), Supreme Court Justices (see Justice Lewis Powell), FBI Directors (see J Edgar Hoover), and Attorney Generals (see Jeff Sessions). White people will do anything to maintain power, and they being forming racist associations early in life. Racism is taught in homes and communities and facilitated, encouraged, and mostly ignored in schools.
  1. The members may meet on a recurring basis. Racists/White Supremacists meet all the time. They meet and church, work, at their parents' homes, political rallies, online in chatrooms, at social clubs, at their kids’ play dates, in the woods hunting, on shooting ranges, while trading stocks, at the all-White school board and city/county council meetings, or when they hold public marches to affirm their love of Whiteness and White power like when we fight (and win) integration challenges.
  2. The association may provide physical protection of its members from others. Protection for racists/White Supremacists is and always has been provided by the government and the criminal justice system. Presidents pardon racists, so do governors. Police departments hide and ignore racists/White Supremacists within their ranks, and countless racists/White supremacists are hiding from the long arm of the law by holding public office. The racist/White Supremacist government allows and encourages this behavior. Billionaires get to hide their racist/White Supremacist motives by donating to racist politicians to further their racist agendas. Racists gang members have always been protected and excused by America. It’s a 400-year tradition and counting.
  3. The association may seek to exercise control over a particular geographic location or region, or it may simply defend its perceived interests against rivals. Gerrymandering, redistricting, voter suppression laws, racist policing practices, red states threatening to secede from the union to be racist, gentrification, White folks controlling public education nationally, etc and all ways White Supremacist defend their interests against Black and Brown rivals.
  4. The association may have an identifiable structure. The identifiable structure in America is every institution in the nation. Businesses/corporate America, public and private education, transportation systems and roads, politics, banking, capitalism, higher education, Presidents, Congressmen/women, politics technology, all federal bureaus, healthcare, police, millionaires, billionaires, investors, Wall Street, you name it. Pick a structure and I can identify the racism/White Supremacy in it.

The White Supremacy Gang Robs and Steals

Racism/White Supremacy robs White and non-White victims alike, but it especially screws Black people. Racism/White Supremacy through its gang members steals our wages, gatekeeps to prevent us from moving upward, takes opportunities from our children, sentences us to prison for petty crimes ruining our lives and the lives of our family members, steals our vibrant communities by devaluing and gentrifying them, redirects resources from ball courts to dog parks, robs of our children by allowing the police to kill them, overcharges us for everything in our communities, and so many other nonsensical things.

Once You're In, You’re Never Getting Out

All White people are born into this gang called racism/White Supremacy. You have to actively work to not be in it. All White people do bidding for the gang directly or indirectly. If you’re not out of it, you’re in it. Racism/White Supremacy requires loyalty. White people not engaging in it are perceived as nigger lovers (or other racist names for different ethnic groups) and shunned, ostracized, and are even killed when they get off code. White Supremacy doesn’t take kindly to its advances being rebuffed. It’s the reason White people care so much about perceptions. They don’t want to be perceived as racist or perceived as not being racist.

The Only Way Out Is Death

The only way out of the gang is death. It won’t allow White people to opt-out wilfully, and too many White people are happy doing the bidding for White gang leaders at various levels to free themselves from it. But freeing themselves from the beast isn't always as easy as it seems. Everything they know is in the gang which makes it harder to leave. Income comes from the gang. Protection from past, current, and future crimes come from the gang. The gang controls all opportunities. The gang controls their family members. Leaving means having to potentially sever family ties, and that’s a hard thing to do. Everyone has heard about being othered. White folks perfected it. No one is signing up for that life. So White folks in the racism/White Supremacy gang stay.
