The Black Faces of White Supremacy
Larry Elder was running for the office of governor in CA against Gavin Newsome and he was a very credible threat; although he lost his bid. The Left was very concerned about losing power so they galvanized their efforts to defeat them. One of their strategies was to paint Larry Elder, an African American, as a white supremacist. Check out the headline below.
The left has a long running trend of denouncing African Americans who disagree with their views as White Supremacists. Another example is how a former MSNBC host called Condoleeza Rice a white supremacist for denouncing critical race theory.
Another example of this is when Senator Tim Scott said, “Woke supremacy is as bad as white supremacy.” For the uninitiated, Urban Dictionary defines “woke supremacy” as the belief that the opinions of far-left people are more important or valid than those of people with opposing views. Ironically, the article below bears witness to that definition.
The phenomenon of calling black people white supremacists is not exclusive to the political arena. It extends to sports figures as well. Sports legend – Charles Barkley has also been labeled a white supremacist.
What drew the ire from the left? Comments like these…
I’m not gonna waste my time thinking about these Confederate statues. That’s wasted energy. You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna keep doing great things. I’m gonna keep trying to make a difference, number one in the black community, because I’m black, but I’m also gonna try to do good things in the world.
I’m not gonna waste my time screaming at a neo-Nazi who’s gonna hate me no matter what, and I’m not gonna waste my time … worrying about these statues they got all over the country
And here is another incendiary quote, as deemed by the left.
What we as black people need to do, we need to worry about getting our education. We need to stop killing each other. We need to try to find a way to have more economic opportunity and things like that. Those things are important and significant.
The irony in all of this is that so many on the left are trapped in a prison of two ideas. If you disagree with leftist viewpoints then, you are racist and there are no other viewpoints worthy of debate. I believe however that there is another perspective not being considered by the left or right, at least not on a wide scale. The very idea of “supremacy is not exclusive to color. In a very real way, it is a spiritual issue. Terry Crews said it best, I think.
“But the thing is, I’ve experienced supremacy even growing up. I’ve had black people tell me that the white man is the devil. I’ve experienced whole organizations that … because of the suffering of black people, they have decided that now, we are not equal, we’re better. And I think that’s a mistake,” Crews argued.
The actor insisted that supremacy — in all its forms — is a “spiritual problem.”
“In your head, you can look at yourself and you can develop a dangerous self-righteousness that could really hurt what we’re trying to do right now,” Crews argued. “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it right now, because if we don’t, it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for.”
Crews said that in response to a tweet that some said he should have been cancelled over. I like his tweet and will share it on my twitter. Feel free to do likewise.
The left labels people they disagree with as racists. They overlook the irony that their protests have made them what they so strongly disavow. Declaring that someone is less black because they don’t see things as you do, makes you a superior black; doesn’t it? And if so, isn’t that a supremacist stance?
White supremacy is wrong. Black supremacy is wrong. Asian, Hispanic and (fill in the blank) supremacy is also wrong. No group of people is better than the other; especially if they different points of view.
We should all stand up against supremacy in all its forms.
It is the right thing to do.
It is the social justice we should all support.
If we do not then every accusation of supremacy is voiced by a supremacist.
