Look at this WHITE MAN in all of his privilege! He gets clothes, his dog, and look at those shoes he has on! Some people can’t even afford shoes! HE IS WHITE, MALE, AND HE HAS LIFE SOOOO EASY
The reblogged quote above is an example of how a person who classifies himself or herself as “white” may use a Racist (White Supremacist) strategy called “White Sacrifice”. Usually, these types of statements are an attempt to give the impression that since there are people who classify themselves as “white”, and who are also “homeless”, that either they too suffer from a global system of oppression like Racism (White Supremacy) or that Racism (White Supremacy) does not exist because there are suffering people within all racial classifications. However, either assertion, whether implied or explicit, is patently false. There is indeed a system of Racism (White Supremacy). Non-white people are the sole victims of that system and people who classify themselves as “white” are the primary beneficiaries of the system (regardless if they are admitted Racists or not).
"White Sacrifice" is a compensatory term, introduced by author and attempted counter-racist scientist Neely Fuller Jr. It simply means that Racists (White Supremacists) will deliberately call attention to whatever perceived suffering a comparatively few people, who are classified as "white", experience rather than the massive number of non-white people who are suffering due to Racism (White Supremacy). The examples given are not anything like being a lifelong Victim of Racism, dominated in every major area of people activity.
There is no other group of individuals on the planet who are dominating and mistreating all other groups in all major areas of activity except people who classify themselves as “white” and who also function as Racists (White Supremacists). To assert anything else is either confusion or unadulterated deception. Keep in mind that Racists (White Supremacists) are very adept at both fomenting confusion and practicing deception.
For example, the consistent use of the term “white privilege”,which is promoted heavily by refined Racists (White Supremacists), helps obscure the reality of Racism (White Supremacy) and its praxis of vicious and relentless domination. That’s why the term “white domination”, would be more accurate in this context. It has never been about what benefits one receives just by virtue of being born. And it’s certainly not about whether there are a few people who classify themselves as “white” who are so bereft they fail to flourish in a global system designed to benefit them. It is about, however, what Racists (White Supremacists) are doing and not doing in order to ensure the permanent domination of all people who they say are not “white”.
Anywhere in the world you will find massive numbers of starving, ill, impoverished, terrorized, dis-educated non-white people. Meanwhile, energy and local resources are being siphoned away by Racists (White Supremacists) and countless drugs, guns, and ammunition are curiously finding their ways into the hands of nonwhite people all over the world. What’s also true is that for every “homeless” white man or woman you’ll find exponentially more so who are non-white. This isn’t a contest. Rather than pointing out random “homeless” people who classify themselves as “white” to deny the existence of Racism (White Supremacy), why not just attempt to produce a planet where no person is mistreated and people who need the most help get the most constructive help they need?
Code Suggestion: Avoid the use of the term “White Privilege”. It serves to obscure the fact that the system of Racism (White Supremacy) requires focused and deliberate behavior and is not simply about various characteristics with which one is born.
Explanation: The system of Racism (White Supremacy) is a global and behavioral system that involves the active mistreatment of non-white people in all nine major areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war). This means that people who classify themselves as “white” and who practice Racism (White Supremacy) must actively think, speak, and behave in certain ways to ensure nonwhite people are mistreated and dominated all around the world.
People who classify themselves as “white” are not passive beneficiaries of Racism (White Supremacy). People who classify themselves as “white” often deny the existence of Racism (White Supremacy) or focus on everything they get as a result of mistreating nonwhite people. This is incorrect. The focus should be on stopping the behavior that maintains the system of Racism (White Supremacy) and forming real plans and using truthful language that help dismantle the system.
Focusing on privileges rather than behavior (domination/deception/violence) causes confusion. This confusion is why people are attaching the term privilege to almost any perceived advantage that a person may have but has done nothing to obtain. So you will see people saying a person who can see has sighted privilege or a black male (despite high incarceration, police brutality, dis-education, poverty, etc) are now described as having male privilege, a black female watching her loved ones floating away during Hurricane Katrina because of her geographical location could be described as having so-called Western privilege. This is simply a deceptive technique to deflect attention away from the countless malicious activities that people who classify themselves as “white” must do in order to maintain the global system of mistreatment called Racism (White Supremacy). The use of the term “White Privilege” helps reinforce this deception. It also helps to keep non-white people focused on each other rather than “The Problem”, which is Racism (White Supremacy) and the people who operate it (Racist Man and Racist Woman).
