    Good. Then you wont be surprised when they come out and play in the daylight. I for one will sit back smoke a cigar and watch them go after those in the world that wronged them and wreck havoc. I expect the show will be a splendid apocalypse.

How can we stop this? Should white people be encouraged to view themselves as lacking an identity, and is a unique identity which contains an element of racial identity something that only minorities should be encouraged to possess?

    So you are shocked that Obamas identity politics that made every democrat a member of an outrage group, caused you call the last group standing a “white group”.

    The multi racial culture that is not in your outrage committee has always been here, working, paying taxes, staying out of other peoples business and not killing each other. If you want the gold ring, work for it. Don’t try to tax it away from the earners so you can feather your own nest.

    Identity politics is a failure.
    We killed God, family, and community. Now it’s killing us.
    When I sound crazy, it’s because I think you are.
    America belongs to the rest of the world. Your job is to pay for it.
    Racism is not being able to read racist rap lyrics out loud because you are white.

    Hm, did they take into account, perhaps, the influence/effect of the recent SJW/identity politics and the role it might play in whites going toward a collective group identity? Seems like they place the responsibility/blame on just Trump (Maybe they address that later in the article but it's behind a paywall for me). I mean, you can only spend so long grouping together a race (whites in this case) as a collective (and blame them, attack them, demean them, etc., as said collective) before they decide that hey, maybe they're actually a unique group/collective that should care about themselves like others care about their own gorups.

    White supremacists haven't been 'wronged'.

    They're human filth.

    Of course not. There's a ****load of racists in the USA. Trump has proven that. And he's gotten them to come out and play in the daylight:

    Why do so many Trump supporters blame everyone else instead of taking personal responsibility? Maybe if they went back to school, they would be able to compete.

    President Lyndon B. Johnson: "If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

Outside of racism, it's not an identity. e.g. Scottish American or German American represents a shared culture and background that has its roots in Europe, but "whiteness" is a product of racism and viewing humans as belonging to particular races. The whole idea of a "white race" is a myth created, at least in part, to justify slavery and colonial exploitation.

    I bet that many African Americans would love to know, for example, which part of Africa their ancestors came from and have some kind of direct historical connection to their ancestral cultures, but that was stolen from them. In the mean time, they have had to deal with a majority that perceives them as the "other" and oftentimes inferior. "Blackness", to a large degree, has been forced on them by people that consider themselves white. This has created a culture which, amongst other things, is a reaction to a shared history of enduring and fighting racism.

    The whole myth of white oppression started soon after the civil war. It's not some new invention.
    While I disagree with the conclusion of your post here, I applaud you for the explanation of your post...Well thought out, and thought provoking....:
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Just exactly what group was not 'being allowed' to consider themselves a group?

    People from differing ideologies from very leftist professors, all the way to Ben Shapiro on the opposite side of the spectrum have said that 'being white isn't a valid identity.'

    LOL! Are you kidding me? White male Christians have been the 'GROUP' in America for almost the last 2 1/2 centuries. You'd have to be absolutely clueless to think that being born white, male and Christian doesn't give you an immediate and sustained advantage in life right from the get go that those not whom were not born into that same group can only dream about.
