The Fantastic Deception Of White Skin…

It is easy for white peo­ple to say, “We got it made over here”, while detail­ing some per­ceived hor­rif­ic con­di­tion in some oth­er coun­try. When you are sit­ting atop the pile, that is in and of itself, and the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of what peo­ple are in the streets about, the very man­i­fes­ta­tion of ‘white priv­i­lege”.

Define “we”.
Sure, some peo­ple of all races are doing okay, but for a lot of peo­ple, things are not so rosy. The prob­lem is that so many white peo­ple do not know or under­stand their own his­to­ry.
They have no clue that the planters divid­ed the black enslaved and the white enslaved bonds-peo­ple along racial lines, in order to main­tain con­trol over them all.

It was crit­i­cal that they find a way to do so because of what was a bur­geon­ing under­class that they were afraid they would not be able to con­trol.
So they con­vinced the white crim­i­nals thrown out of Europe that they were supe­ri­or based on the sim­i­lar­i­ty of their skin col­or with that of the planters and wealthy estate hold­ers.
They went fur­ther, by mak­ing them over­seers on the plan­ta­tions and slave catch­ers after they had worked off their peri­od of bond­ed servi­tude.
Out of the slave ‑catch­ing in the Southern States came [the thing we now call polic­ing].
White [refuse]being dumped on America from Europe did not end until after the civ­il war end­ed.

Still today, the one per­cent have con­vinced poor whites that they are some­how supe­ri­or to oth­er races in America. While all of us fight over the crumbs from their tables.
The mid­dle class is being evis­cer­at­ed, and more than forty per­cent of American fam­i­lies can­not find an extra $500 cash in case of an emer­gency.
All fo this, while we are at each oth­er’s throats and they pile up tril­lions in their sav­ings accounts.
Ninety-sev­en per­cent of the poor­est coun­ties in the nation are in Republican-run states.

These are coun­ties that are heav­i­ly pop­u­lat­ed by poor whites, who, despite white priv­i­leges, are unable to pull them­selves up by their boot­straps.
What they do well, is claim vic­tim­hood, and are heav­i­ly invest­ed in hatred.
Stupid is as stu­pid does. As long as they have you fooled that your pale skin is some­how some­thing which places you above oth­er races in America they will con­tin­ue to rape all of us, and all you have is your white fan­ta­sy of supe­ri­or­i­ty.
