I completely get that the vast majority of "white" people do not ideologically endorse white supremacISM. However, white supremacy -- the empirically verifiable fact that people who are treated as "white" receive systematic privilege and live in a position of substantially better opportunities and unearned wealth and political power relative to nonwhite counterparts...IS INDEED logically the ethical responsibility of "white" people to overturn.
Robert Jensen articulated this best: as it is clearly not in the interest of nonwhite people to establish or to maintain white supremacy, the ongoing existence and operation of white supremacy must necessarily be due to either the active desires or the complicity of "white" people.
Most "white" people will readily tell you, if asked, that they don't personally want to maintain white supremacy...but such a question only deals with their intent. Despite genuine intent, the fact remains that white supremacy doesn't ask permission. Like any system of coercion and hierarchy, once it is in place, it takes no intentional effort on the part of the most of the privileged to maintain...simply going along with the dominant order is enough. Indeed, the universal human desire to think well of oneself, to avoid association with commission of great harm, actually creates an incentive for denial of such complicity. This, combined with growing up in an environment in which the privileged (on a given axis...in this case "race") are trained to not see their own privilege, leads to exactly the kind of dogmatic blindness and reactionary nonsense championed by the likes of FOX, bloggers like Breitbart, and overt white supremacists like Jared Taylor and David Duke.
A clear question which cuts to the heart of this issue would be:
who benefits -- materially, psychologically, and politically -- from the popular pretense that "white" people are not privileged?
I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.
What percent of the DOJ do you think is white?
"Most disturbing, the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions. Citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims. Equal enforcement of justice is not a priority of this administration. Open contempt is voiced for these types of cases."
