“In the final analysis, national struggle is a matter of class struggle. Among the whites in the United States it is only the reactionary ruling class who oppress Black people. They can in no way represent the workers, farmers, revolutionary intellectuals and other enlightened persons who comprise the overwhelming majority of white people.”

–Mao Tse-tung

Once, right after chaining up my bike, I noticed a couple of ordinarily dressed white guys leading a couple of ordinarily dressed Black dudes out of the Macy’s on 34th Street in Manhattan and into the back of a nondescript late modeled sedan.

A large crowd had gathered and we all watched in silence until I said in a loud voice,“What? Are they being kidnapped?”

One dude laughed. It was a Black dude. He eyed me conspiratorially because he knew what I was getting at.

Such is the widespread acceptance of white authority and Black guilt — that any one of a number of crimes could be playing out right before our eyes — that we wouldn’t even question. By that point, we had already accepted that a crime had played out involving the Black dudes, and the white dudes had come in to save the day.

This is how and why racism works.

We’d all be foolish to imagine that the American enslavement of Africans was done for any other reasons than financial.

If we were to be honest, we’d admit that the all-African image of American slavery is not only a myth, but also a result of trial and error.

At one point or another, American Indians, Irish, Chinese, and even fellow English were enslaved in America. But since we Blacks were always the easiest to spot, we got to keep the job.

The propaganda that Blacks were inferior, running amuck in Africa, in need of Christian salvation or in need of civilizing was all manufactured by rich slave traders. And came after the fact as a way to assuage any concerns or even compassion that poor whites not involved in the slave trade may have otherwise naturally felt.

The fact that some of those same beliefs exist to this day is a testament not only to the power of negative thought, but also to the general gullibility of far too many people.

So, are most white people racist?

Not at all.

Only the dumb ones.
