How America Spreads the Disease that is Racism by not Confronting Racist Family Members and Friends

First a quibble: I’d suggest making a chart with the directions reversed, since then it would correspond more naturally to the traditional left–right political spectrum.

Second, and more importantly, the chart’s language and framing are clearly un-charitable toward the “racist” side. In particular, the far-left (i.e., what should be the far-right) position could more charitably be phrased as “Whites run the kinds of societies I prefer to live in.”

This more neutral rendering takes away the inflammatory language of “supremacy,” replacing it with a more appropriate personal preference.

The reason this wasn’t done is that it makes the case for the “racist” side too compelling. Indeed, the chart is already flirting with trouble, given that the second-to-most-“racist” point is inarguably true; indeed, the impending minority status of whites is roundly cheered on the Left.

But by making the final point something like “Whites run the kinds of societies I prefer to live in,” the chart would reveal the core problem, which is that huge numbers of people, including many non-whites, observably prefer to live in countries run by white people.

Calling this observation “racist” is indeed an odd charge—if whites are so terrible, why do so many people want to live with them?

The answer is that people want to have their cake and eat it too. They want the benefits of living in white countries, while also displacing whites from power and demographically replacing them.

This is all well and good if human beings truly are interchangeable—if we’re really “one race, the human race.”

On the other hand, if it turns out that whites actually do have something special going for them—no matter how “racist” that may sound—those who seek to displace whites will be killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

Good luck!
