The color of the race problem

Robert Jensen:

Where does racism come from?
It comes from white supremacy
the idea that non-white people are inherently inferior from white folks

Now lets ask a simple question
who came up with the idea of white supremacy?

The color of the race problem is white
The color of the race problem is white

Now when we talk about the modern conception of racism and white supremacy
we are talking about an idea that comes out of Europe about five to six hundred years ago
it comes out of Europe just about the time Europe was doing what ?
going about the business of subjugating the rest of the world

So white people created a white supremacist society
and therefore
we recognize

The core of the race problem resides in the white community
the core of the race problem resides in the white community

The color of the race problem is white
the color of the race problem is white

Toni Morrison:

If you can only be tall
because somebody is on the knees
then you have a serious problem
and my feeling is
white people have a very very serious problem
and they should start thinking
about what they can do about it

Robert Jensen:

White supremacist society
again even in a post-apartheid civil rights era
in which the legal structures of discrimination have been eliminated

It is still appropriate to talk about a white supremacist society
white supremacist society in both material and ideological terms

So we can see that the problem is the problem of white supremacy
we can see where white supremacy comes from
we recognize

The core of the race problem resides in the white community
The core of the race problem resides in the white community

Toni Morrison:

Take me out
I´m not a victim

Take me out
I´m not a victim
