How Anti-White Bigotry Works

One reason anti-white bigots are not held to account is because the way their bigotry works is new and unique, and therefore we haven’t taught ourselves to recognize it as such.

Historically, expressions of bigotry consisted of crude slurs directed against people of other races. Anti-white bigotry doesn’t work at all like this. It works to demonize whites very slowly, piece by piece. Every individual step is deniable, but taken altogether they are not. We don’t have an intellectual framework for understanding it, so we don’t put the pieces together. And, very importantly, it’s usually other whites who are doing the attacking. Anti-white bigotry is what the left would call “internalized racism”.

Liberalism is too sophisticated to just come out and say “whites are devils.” Instead it says lots of other things that indirectly add up to the same result.

There are two ways racism can work. Lets use a chess king on a chessboard as a metaphor. If you wanted to totally denigrate everything the chess piece does, you could point to it and call it the “n-word”. No matter what move the king makes, it’s still carries the n-word around, and is thereby stigmatized. (As Malcolm X said: even when a black man earns a Phd, he’s still just a n-word.) That’s how old fashioned KKK racism works.

But liberal anti-white bigotry works differently. Instead of pointing to the king and calling it nasty word, it exhaustively analyses every individual move the piece could make and declares each move to be sinister and evil. It’s moves up: that’s racist. It moves down: that’s white privilege. It moves left: that’s gentrification. It moves right: that’s white flight. It moves diagonal: that’s a microaggression, or cultural appropriation, or some other nonsense. And so on and so on, putting whites under a microscope, looking at every thought, word and act in the worst possible light, blaming them for every problem, or just making up slander.

This is a lot more work than old fashioned racism, but liberalism has no shortage of intellectuals willing to do that work. And through it all they never come out and say “Whites are devils” but it all adds up to the same thing.

This is the mechanism by which anti-racism turns into anti-white bigotry, even for those liberals who didn’t necessarily set out to be anti-white bigots. I call this piecemeal racism, since it attacks its target one step at a time, rather than all at once as with traditional racism. Methodical racism might be another good term for it.

The beauty of it is that it is indirect and deniable, passive aggressive. Any individual part of the overall pattern can go unnoticed as anti-white bigotry, or if it is noticed it can be denied as being motivated by hatred. It is only when you see the pattern as a whole that it becomes clear that whites are being totally and comprehensively denigrated.

And I think in some cases liberals might not even notice what they’ve become. Its deniability means they can deny it even to themselves. They don’t use blatant slurs, and they try to appear academic. But I think on a psychological level their approach couldn’t help but turn into hatred: when so much time and effort is dedicated to uncompromising adversarial critique of a group of people, how could it not turn into hatred? That’s just how human nature works.
