I have had several students who were white supremacists as evidenced by their expressed opinions but if asked specifically “are you a white supremacist” they would deny it. Meanwhile one boys parents thought it was a phase.

I have “met” far more white supremacists in this forum though most of them prefer the term white nationalist tho.

It isn't a day on C-D without extreme left wingers calling other people "racist" or "white supremacist."

Are you suggesting that Democrats don’t support Affirmative Action, a white supremacy law?

Hey, remember Southern Honor! We White guys are racist to PROTECT YOU.....

Well, that's the historical angle or excuse anyway.

Most of it actually had to do with economics and competition for jobs. Poor people are happier when they feel their boot is on the neck of someone even worse off.

Southern Women in the Anti-Lynching Campaign, DBQ: Document 1

"To palliate this record (which grows worse as the Afro-American becomes intelligent) and excuse some of the most heinous crimes that ever stained the history of a country, the South is shielding itself behind the plausible screen of defending the honor of its women."

This has always been a rallying cry for the most fervent of racists and bigots. That's why my post asked about it in the sense of "what would someone feel if their daughter married into a different race?"......and if people asked themselves that question, they may be able to measure their level of "supremacy".

Of course, some of that is cultural. A Hindu anyway will often have to only consider Indian women (or men, in the opposite scenario) because many marriages are partially arranged AND it's an incredibly important part of the religion, class society, etc.

Being, tho, as Black and Brown folks are largely "Christian", American White Nationalist can't use that example.

People should ask themselves before they hit the submit button if their post really contributes to the discussion or simply is a chance to express their own biases or poke someone in the eye in a divisive manner. Sometimes the delete option is best but rarely used in an anonymous forum. The topic is about whether you personally know a White Supremacist.

This forum is mentioned at various places on the internet being friendly to the "nationalist" POV. Others, probably nationalists, call it the opposite!

I've been debating politics online since 1986 (Compuserve) and I don't think I've ever been in a forum where as many such "nationalists" seem emboldened to create 100's of threads. It's one thing to debate a POV, quite another when you come here some days and the entire page is full of threads that one glances at...and then leaves.

Whether it's the lack of moderation or the slant of it is a question for the ages. Of course CD has a perfect right to make their pages look however they want (I get quite a few of my posts and threads removed....and I don't curse, threaten, etc. at all).

San Diego is not a "major city". You want backsides? I should have known.

Depends on the definition of "white supremacist" you are using. Also depends on what you mean by "know." If people think Trump is a white supremacist then how can anyone be honest about what one truly is? Have I been in the presence of white supremacists? Absolutely. They are nothing like DT or others the left is deeming white supremacists. I have also been in the presence of non-white people who are just as racist and disgusting. Any one of any of those groups would slit my throat or beat/rape me as well.

I know people that many on the left would label "white supremacist", probably myself included, but no I really don't think so. I did meet a couple once about 40 years ago who were probably as close as I ever got, but I didn't talk to them enough to learn their ideologies.

I don’t personally know posters on this forum so no, I personally don’t know any white supremacists.

The web is as close as I would choose to get to them.
