“White supremacy” has become a concept to fill gaps in the woke worldview.
Five days is a long time in the social media world, but this comment on the Rittenhouse verdict from progressive Democrat state senator for Providence Tiara Mack is worth memorializing:
THERE IS NO REST. We must all learn how white supremacy impacts everyone, including white people. We know our systems are broken and we must hold everyone accountable to change.
The vilification of “whiteness” is simply a negative god to the woke. It’s an article of pure faith, and every circumstance must be made to conform with it.
“Whiteness” is not a color; it is acceptance of a set of moral standards.
As this movement comes more into focus, I’m seeing it more and more as an effort to cast Western values as racist so as to make young adults unable/unwilling to function within it, thus creating tension that makes them amenable to activism and giving power to progressives.
