This is a wonderful summary of recent world history, with which almost any reasonably educated person should be familiar.
It is also diversionary and unrelated to the concerns of my post.
The primary concern of my post is based on a statement GeorgeTichy has made, and grows out of it:
I say that this statement is unverifiable, because it depends on the concession that not all white people are racist. However, no one has yet proven this.
I then go on, first via analogy, then via a description of the problem and its complexity, to show why this is the case.
This sets the field for my secondary concern, when I, briefly, suggest how non-white people should respond to the question, “Are all white people racist?”
The answer that I suggest they give is, “I don’t know.” I say that this is the most objective answer, given the evidence, and, again, the difficulty of resolving the question.
Please respond to these concerns, directly. That is, please either falsify them, affirm them, or merely say that you do not know if what I am proposing is true or false. Otherwise, I will consider what you’ve written off-topic and disregard it.
And, now, because it’s fun, let me disassemble the rest of what you’ve written:
This is, in a certain sense, an argument in a circle.
Do you know what this is?
It’s a scale model of Volkshalle. Designed by Albert Speer, this 95-story-high pantheon was to be the architectural centerpiece of the Third Reich.
It was never built.
Clearly, Speer had considerable talent. Indeed, he had so much talent that he passed a fair amount on to his son, Albert Speer Jr.:
Speer Jr. was also an architect; a gifted one whose firm built many fine structures, one of which is the Oval, in Frankfurt:
As you might imagine, Speer Jr. spent a considerable amount of his life distancing himself from his dad’s corrosive patrimony. He died in 2017.
How much of the Nazi legacy should one excuse because, had they made it to the 1,000-year mark, as planned, they would have, no doubt, contributed scenic plazas?
(I realize I’m firmly in Godwin’s Law territory, here, but maybe not, since I am talking about white supremacy, and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party was a white supremacist organization.)
IOW, there is nothing in your statement, above, that falsifies mine.
The only words with which I disagree are “is a result of.” I would replace them with the word utilizes, thus forming this new, true statement
White supremacy utilizes the technological and scientific advances that whites made over the last few centuries to dominate the world.
Your argument, in other words, is that white people have produced scenic plazas.
My argument is that, under white supremacy, I’ve never seen a scenic plaza white people produced that wasn’t, directly and/or indirectly, used to dominate non-white people.
The radios, cars, books, and governmental systems you mention, and that white people bequeathed to Africans under duress, in other words, weren’t for their good. It was to make them better colonial subjects; so that they would, so to speak, “stop fighting, lay back, and enjoy it.”
You’ve accused me of a) fixation, and b) it being “both too narrow and too broad at the same time.”
So, by this point, given my frequent repetition of it, you may be familiar with what I call The Maximum Maxim:
“Under racism, any criticism made of a victim of white supremacy is better, and more accurately, made of the system, itself.”
As a victim of race, obviously, white supremacy is far more fixated on me than I am on it. The proof of this is that it dominates me. The reverse is not true.
If a man, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is hunting, but ceases to be fixated on the deer, this happens:
If the deer ceases to be fixated on the man, this happens:
Sadly, under racism, more non-white people end up looking like the latter, and far fewer, even momentarily, like the former.
As for me being “both too narrow and too broad at the same time,” white supremacy is fixated on everything from how many people there are who look like me on the planet, and how fast we are reproducing…to the texture of my hair and chromosomes. I couldn’t manifest a billionth that much range.
Since you agree that white supremacy has led to racism—again, they’re the same thing, but let’s go with your formulation, for now—I’d urge, for the reasons I’ve given, above, that this cancels its gifts.
It’s as if your wife said, “My dentist does an excellent cleaning, and a painless root canal, but, after you’re under the gas, he also rapes you.” Not only would you try to kill him, but you would also find another dentist.
This brings us back to do.
That’s what GeorgeTichy said, what you, as well as @elmer_cupino, below, have echoed.
What should be obvious is not only haven’t you proven this, you’ve not even addressed it. You’ve merely just asserted it.
