In your definition, what is "white supremacy??

Lol, did I say anything about identity or purpose. I asked you for clear examples on how to reject white privelege. Please tell me...

Once again, anything I say at this point, will be easier for you to label as racist, because, you simply do not understand white privelege or white supremacy. I made a clear example, about something that many black folks told me they are angry about, and I put it into a real context. Please, once again tell me, how do I reject my white privelege?

Wrong. I said, that when black folks were labeled as 1 5th of human beings, to accept it would be to reject their humanity.


I did not say, that it would be to reject their skin colour. Once again, it is easier for you to nitpick and label me, than it is to answer the greater context of my argument. Long story short, you have nothing positive or valuable to add to this conversation.
