Really? So Trump invented racial hatred? Wow. Umm, just wanted to check on something. Did you ever go to school? Ever study history? Ever try to think for yourself?

Just saying....

Uh huh then how is we have such distinct people who could even be considered diverse and to mix in the first place? Diversity is natural and not a bad thing, forcing it together is not.

What happened to you is years of social conditioning to hate white supremacists. This is actually dangerous in of it itself because if they can make you hate white supremacists, they can make you hate anyone they want. You may want to deeply reflect on how easily you're led by your nose.
Two paragraphs of philosophical babble to say you are OK with white supremacists. Thank goodness you and your ilk are not part of mainstream America.

I'm not okay with white supremacist types. I've dealt with them.

Seem like many posters think that having an opinion that whites are better is not white supremacy.

"Better" can mean a lot of things depending on context and doesn't imply superior or supreme. Put that standard definition of white supremacy up again.

As a white person born certainly at the time in a white country, I find it "better" to live in a white country ruled by whites. If anyone, white or not, doesn't like that I'd prefer it if you would just decide to go somewhere else. I didn't ask for or want your policy.

This is what white supremacy looks like.

I know a few people who are realtors. I sometimes wonder if they come across people who are like that. I've heard stories about real estate discrimination.

People using social media to communicate their hatred isn't just a Trump-era thing. I had to break ties with individuals who did this during the Obama administration.
