I share this in a moment where I am balancing feelings of intense rage and hope for a new future where BIPOC Black, Indigenous, People of Color are able to survive, thrive, move, laugh, live, exist, make mistakes, and just be. This is an invitation for you to do your own work in unpacking how white supremacy and anti-Blackness manifests and how we all need to engage in the deep, personal work of unraveling how this beast is burrowed into our collective psyches. Lastly, this is an invitation. You can join or not join, but please know that by not joining you are choosing to feed the beast that is white supremacy. White supremacy and anti-blackness is a beast that since the beginning of our history as a country has burrowed its way into every facet of American life. The beast is a violent one, a sometimes silent one, but it is ever-present and always ready to pounce on anyone or any concept that threatens its predatory way of life.

10 ways white supremacy wounds white people: A tale of mutuality

White supremacists who stormed US Capitol are only the most visible product of racism

The racist violence in Charlottesville is an appalling chapter in the very long history of white supremacy in America. Morgan demonstrates how the seeds of modern racism were planted in the American colonies; that history provides valuable lessons if we are ever to confront white supremacy as it exists today. In the early 17 th Century, would-be plantation owners in Virginia were facing a problem: to be profitable, tobacco farming required a lot of extremely unpleasant labor. Clearly these tasks were not to be undertaken by the plantation owners themselves; that would really undermine the appeal of plantation ownership. But, unlike England, Virginia did not have a class of already-poor people desperate for any work that would provide subsistence. So who would do the work? At first, Virginia plantation owners filled their labor shortage by relying heavily on white indentured servants.

When white supremacy came to Virginia

As demonstrations in response to the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others gain momentum across the United States, many white people nationwide are being forced to confront the idea that flashpoints like this are not isolated missteps within an otherwise faithful system. Rather, more and more white folks are realizing each day that the very fabric of our society is in fact based on enduring violence against Black people and other marginalized groups. In this time, the sharing of trauma-porn and reactionary social-media solidarity—while perhaps the most readily available avenue of action for most—are nowhere near suitable surrogates for a factual, historical understanding of this moment. Southerners are no strangers to white supremacy and police brutality.
The original belief was that the Normans from France who conquered Europe corrupted the English church and Anglo-Saxon society in the Conquest of The Reformation was in part about cleansing the English church and society of the Norman contamination. They were coming with the goal to build an Anglo-Saxon, Christian nation, not like the one they got pushed out of. The notion of race is social.
