“Root Racism and New Racism”
I wanna thank ethnic economics guru Dr. Claude Anderson for being alive. I guess that’ll serve as an intro, and you looking him up will serve as reading the intro…
Now, what is racism? And, I do not mean by the definitions found in the racist, classist, culturally subjective ‘dictionaries’ made post 1900. I mean, as an applied practice and meta-historically. Racism is the competition between self- and rival-identified ethno-socio-political groups to dominate the acquisition and control of Earthly resources (goods, services, slaves, culture, etc). The root word is “race” for an actual reason: In the 1500’s/1600’s, European powers were in a race to see who would get to develop the Western world and Americas.
By law or socially instituted practice, in nearly all Western & Westernized nations, including the USA, a “minority” is not simply a term for the mathematically inferior. A ‘minority’ is the loser; the ethnic group or groups that the majority culture disenfranchises of the means (tools, skills, rights, privileges, etc) of competition in root racism.
It is a rarity to be directly oppressed by an internationally connected government or business (i.e., super corporations) on the grounds of pure hatred by the governing/commercial body of the oppressed. Any group of people whose clandestine true cultural leaders fear genetic, ethnic, and/or cultural annihilation by a group deemed different or superior, will act out of instinctual survival strategics. This includes tight control of other ethnic groups education systems, foods/nutrition, social image, media, and healthcare state.
Prejudice, bias, bigotry & culture-blind economic classism are practices that existed before root racism, but are concepts that it’s newer definitions have been re-appropriated to fit as or tightly with. The disenfranchised cannot be [root] racist. Any person can be bigoted, biased, prejudiced, hateful, etc. However, for the disenfranchised to be racist, they would need the means by which to compete with other self- and rival-identified “races”. They would need the ability to deny such things as jobs, housing, and food from other ethnicities while being self-identified by ethnic traits under an umbrella understanding and agenda (known to the mass of the ethnicity or not). They would need to be able to control a formidable portion of the business done based around the fruits of their culture; music, art, media, agriculture, etc.
Those disenfranchised over relatively long periods of time tend to contain a logical suspicion, distrust and/or fear for those who perpetrate(d) and/or benefit(ed) from their suffering, be that economically, via social privilege, or legislatively. Those who perpetrate(d) or benefit(ed) from the suffering of those locked into a minority status have no cause to fear, distrust, or suspect the disenfranchised, except via direct or indirect guilt; usually via a firm understanding of why/how a group may be viciously vindictive or angered by prolonged and intense suffering.
Once those blindly locked into the game (With ever-changing rules) called Political Correctness (“PC”) are taught or reminded that the very politics of the game are only lobbied for in their favor, at the expense of the disenfranchised, the gloves come off… and the race war escalates… likely back to the blatant “racism” of the 1500’s. The type practiced between equally equipped European powers…but between themselves and between them and other ethnicities.
Equality comes not in a superficially fair and forcefully forgetful “post-racial” ideal society, but in one where the deeds of the past, the heritages of one and all, and the means of competition and self-definitive identity are collectively allowed, provided, known, respected, and reparations are fairly disseminated.
