What is White Supremacy? - You've gotta understand it to fight it!
White supremacy is based on the false and malignant idea that, a hierarchy of human value exists - that some people are superior and others inferior. Learn more from this podcast with Dr. Gail Christopher, founder of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation framework.
White supremacy infects the culture of organizations, families, and groups of friends, shaping how people relate to each other and interact. Read more about what to look for, from the article “The Characteristics of White Supremacy Culture” from Dismantling Racism: A Workbook for Social Change Groups by Kenneth Jones and Tema Okun.
White supremacists think White people are superior. White nationalists are hate groups that take it a step further and organize around the goal of a white-only society. White supremacy is far more common and insidious than white nationalism because it can remain hidden. People with white supremacist thoughts often don’t think of themselves as racist, and therefor don’t work to rid themselves of the racist ideas they’ve been taught.
