Are You a White Supremacist?

Here's all the racial guilt you didn't even know you had depicted in one leftist chart.

A chart circulating on social media depicts “overt white supremacy” that is “socially unacceptable” above all the various things that amount to “socially acceptable” “covert white supremacy.” The shape of the chart brings new meaning to the term “pyramid scheme.”

Clearly, everyone but actual racists would argue that lynching, burning crosses, displaying swastikas, and using the N-word are indeed unacceptable and should have no place in American society.

But that’s where the chart jumps the shark. There are more than 50 other practices, thoughts, or phrases that the “woke” folks peddling the chart say amount to prevalent and accepted white racism. A few of the things are understandably labeled as such — when they’re actually happening. Ironically, though “Make America Great Again” makes the list for white supremacy, “mass incarceration” of blacks was largely brought about by the man who wants to defeat President MAGA, Joe Biden. And Donald Trump has taken concrete steps to rectify the system.

For the most part, however, this list of skin sins is largely the pulp fiction of the Left’s alternate reality. Several of the items are so absurd we’ll admit we had to look them up just to even know what the chart maker meant. (Did anyone else know what the heck “fetishizing BIPOC” means?)

Others are the same tired cultural battles we’ve been fighting for decades. “Celebration of Columbus Day” is not white supremacy. Sports mascots are not racist. (Who names a team after something they want to degrade? Do these yahoos even watch sports?) Exceptionalism is not bigoted. Saying “we’re all one big human family” should be unifying (E pluribus unum, and all that), not evidence of some phantom prejudice.

We could go on but why bother? This is not a thoughtful exercise prompted by those who love our country and want to encourage racial healing. It’s the petty airing of grievances by angry leftists who want to classify every white conservative as a white supremacist and every black conservative an Uncle Tom. It’s political horse pucky, not cultural advancement.
