Do Blacks use the premise of Caucasian hegemony a/k/a White Supremacy as an excuse
instead of being accountable & accepting responsibility for their situation?
Why is it MUCH EASIER for Blacks to use the premise of Caucasian hegemony than to work smart & be successful? Has the premise of Caucasian hegemony become a futile one?
You experience a thing once in however many years, and if you focus too much on it - you can start imagining it everywhere. But scapegoating another group is as ancient as the mountains. Holy smoke though, anyone with much of a Facebook account could see there is no such thing as a 'white hegemony.'
The answer is NO! I asked a question about the connection between ugly people and violence recently. Of course, I wasn't being completely serious and was more interested in starting a discussion. I wasn't surprised at the number of people who reprimanded me and found my question to be in poor taste. However, I predict that very few will cry foul with your question here because there are many racists who participate on Hubpages. Consequently, they will see nothing wrong with your question. And I will remind those who claims they are not racist that anyone who reverently refers to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson,Andrew Jackson, or any other criminal as a "founding father" is a bonafide racist.
Having made clear that I know what time it is, I will now inform that your question presupposes that a majority, if not all, white people are successful. In fact, for your question to have any merit, or basis in fact, this would necessarily have to be so. However, this is not the case. And because of 400 years of slavery, over 100 years of Jim Crow, and a system of white supremacy that continues to function, any statistic that you might cite concerning a disproportionate number of blacks below the poverty level is irrelevant. In fact, this is to be expected of any oppressed minority, regardless of race. The truth is, there have always been more poor white people in the United States than any other race, and there have always been more white people on the welfare rolls.
Furthermore, I am one of the most intelligent people living in the world today. And this is further proven by the fact that I am one of the few people, if not the first, to make the connection between chattel slavery in America and the welfare system. Nearly 400 years of slavery here in America amounts to nothing less than 400 years of being on welfare or public assistance. Slave-owners like George Washington who were too greedy to pay anyone to do the labor, and too lazy to do it themselves, enslaved Indigenous and African people to do the work for them. This was the first incarnation of the welfare system here in America. And white people have enjoyed a free ride for over 500 years. They continue to enjoy stolen land and resources, and they reaped the benefit of free labor for nearly 400 years. It is no wonder that the United States became the wealthiest nation on the planet !
U R right, slavery has had lasting repercussions; but intelligent people don't resent the past like U, WB. They KNOW one thing leads to another with no turning back. America could be like the Middle East without 'criminals' founding this nation.
I like how leftist call anyone to the right of Karl Marx a 'racist,' or a 'Nazi.' Words are like currency - you print too much of it and it loses value. Keep it up.
Wesman...It's been way too long since I told U I love U! Let's forget about the age difference & combine our talents & intelligence & be the Power Couple this world cannot possibly ever be ready for!! ROFLMAO!
Cath, Women have unsuccessfully tried to get the ERA passed since 1923. Yet you defend your own oppressors. Wesman, it would be remarkable if U had an original thought, or an intelligent comment. Paula, you are a dream come true!

A black Baltimore man recently died while in police custody, and it is widely suspected that his death resulted from police misconduct and brutality. Well, I say, regardless of all that, thousands of blacks should NOT be out in the streets rioting. In my opinion, their rioting is nothing but a case...

Since it's beginning, America has been based on, "slavery, white supremacy and oligarchy ..."This understanding is just not true and the majority of the citizenry know it. How any individual or group of individuals think(s) they can get away with such HOGWASH is beyond me!!!!

I wanted to add my voice to what Don and wrenchBuscuit were trying to explain. I think that it deserves a more in depth evaluation. I probably should have done a hub.White supremacy is not only something physical but acts at the subconscious level.The PBS special a few years ago entitled Guns,...

I am wondering about racism in the world, particularly towards Africans and African-Americans. I know that there are underpinnings of racist attitudes in the US but what about other nations like Canada, Central or South America, or Europe? I assume Britian is a little more open towards blacks since...
