Admitted Racist, Dr. Barbara Trepagnier visits The Context of White Supremacy. We’ll discuss her most interesting publication, Silent Racism: How Well-Meaning White People Perpetuate The Racial Divide. A codified interpretation of a profound portion of her book: The existence of the “not racist” category produces in the mind of the [non-white person] the illusion that [there are White people who] bear no responsibility for [The System of White Supremacy]. Yet, [White Supremacy] cannot be isolated from the [White Supremacist] practice and everyday [White Supremacy] of White people who produce indirect [Systemic White Supremacy] daily, regardless of their recognition of it or their intention to do so. in this way, the illusion that most White people are “not racist” virtually ensures the perpetuation of [the System of White Supremacy]. Although [Refined White Supremacy] by definition is not spoken aloud, it would be a mistake to assume that it is of little importance or that the behavior following from it is not [White Supremacist]. Passivity by White people is also important in maintaining the [System of White Supremacy], allowing it to operate without interruption, but also encourages it (pg. 82-83).
