UNDERSTANDING THE BLACK EXPERIENCE
5: THE PARALLELS OF BLACK AND WHITE SUPREMACY
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
As we continue to pursue the ways and means toward a valid, precise and clear understanding of the Black Experience there is an expressed need to explore the following question. What are the parallels of Black and White Supremacy? One of the great tragedies and result of economic racism is the attempt by the oppressed to take on the aspirations of his/her oppressor. For example some Blacks have taken on aspects of racism to counter racism stemming from the White community. In many cases some Blacks have also taken on the philosophy and ideology of Racial Superiority to counter-act White Racial Superiority.
Meanwhile the study and pursuit of
the realities of Black history are distorted and clouded with Hate. As many
so-called Afro-Centric scholars take up the banner of Black Supremacy they like
their White counter-parts distort and confuse many people. Therefore, there is
an obfuscation of the historical record. This confused recollection of history
is tainted by prejudices and the one-track mind of a Hatemonger. What
eventually results is a messed up dichotomy of Hate, one Black and one White.
Ingrained in the explanation of these
two terms is found further evidence as to when, what why and how Racial
Supremacy philosophies came to exist. What is White Supremacy? What is Black
Supremacy? Can these two terms be defined? What are the basic similarities? Can
opposing viewpoints note many parallels? What of extremism and its nature
however traveled by different people but both having the same goals?
One can trace the historical development of White Supremacy in the exploitative tales of
Imperialism, Colonialism, and the
submission of the Third World to domination by the world's great economic

FreedomJournal: When did White
Supremacy begin? Does the advent of humankind on earth bear on this question?
What have been the great cultures the past 3, 000 years? What role did the
enslavement of the African have on White Supremacy? Was the enslavement of the
African an economic, political, or social enterprise? Did the conquest of
Africa for slaves embrace all of the previous mentioned principles, what came
Truth: Nor do I say that White Supremacy
came by way of Hate and prejudices. Thus did money invent hate, racism and
prejudices? Does man in his limited wisdom also have a mind-set of hate? Was
love with us from the beginning? What of love as abandoned by many for material
things and the wicked ways of the outer world?
FreedomJournal: Then are you saying
that we have an inner world? Is this, my soul benefited by the grasping of the
Spiritual realm? Please tell me Truth, would the Spiritual mind render the
mis-carriage of justice that we have seen?
Truth: Yes and some will say no
because they deny the existence of the All Powerful and All Knowing. But does the determination of the
starting point for White Supremacy hinge on the belief in economics as the
breeder for Supremacy among White people? So when was the start of
economic-racism and why did it start?
FreedomJournal: Some have said the
time of 1619 and the enlistment of servants that became slaves. Some also note
that it started when the people from Europe sought to place Egypt outside of
Africa. However it is for sure that the initial aspects of Racism and Racial
Superiority did not come from a particular race believing that they were somehow
genetically superior to another culture or race.
Well what is White Supremacy? Also if
Economic Supremacy preceded Racial Supremacy what is Economic Supremacy and how
does it relate to racism? So Truth what is Spiritual and how is it combined
with Truth? Do we need Spiritual Truth to unravel this question?
Once there was a time when different
people came upon the face of the earth. These people were all created by
Almighty God. However being taken with sin and ungodliness some looked to
forsake, abuse and exploit their brethren. Time place and condition did render
some lands less suitable for growing crops than others. Also, some areas were
more endowed with mineral resources and the great forest.
But all land inhabited by humankind
had the ability to grow something that man could eat or take from the sea or
river. Also there were forests throughout that also provided wild game for
eating and for the making of clothing, utensils etc.
However, greed released by a sinful
posture renders the adventure of conquest for gold, silver, precious metals and
eventually human beings. As the land was taken hostage so were the people of
the land. They were exploited in-house and also taken to foreign lands to
continue the ways of Imperialism and the lust for money and material resources.
This economic greed eventually gave
rise to Economic Supremacy. As the world Imperialist Powers contested for world
domination they laid waste to the Third World conquering the human and natural
resources. Soon various powers emerged as Super Powers with a lock on the Un-
Developed countries that they Un-Developed by a relentless campaign of
terrorism featured by rape and pillage never known in the annals of human
