In the system of white supremacy, those who want to maintain that system have a number of tactics they use on their victims. One common tactic is deflection. Up until the 1960’s white supremacists were very open about their white supremacist views. They wore their racism on their sleeves. They would openly state their white supremacist views in the laws, housing market, job market, educational field, and in public places.
Then in the mid-60’s the white supremacists realized that overt racism would cause overt opposition from Black society. So the white supremacists went into the refinement stage of white supremacy. And the new refinement stage required the racists to use the denial and deflection tactic. The new rule is to continue to practice white supremacy in all areas of activity, but deny that they are doing it.
And one main tactic of white supremacy denial is deflection. Whenever the subject of racism comes up, most white supremacist will deflect into another topic. And usually they will deflect from a racial issue and try to deceive you into believing it is a political issue. This is a common tactic that is utilized by white supremacists today.
Many white supremacists, and suspected white supremacists will arbitrarily label a random Black person or groups of Black people as members of “Black Lives Matter”. This way, they can code their racial criticism of Black people behind the guise of criticizing a political movement.
Another common tactic used by suspected white supremacists (especially the ones online) is playing the “white supremacist hot potato game”. This is when suspected racists will try to pass white supremacy off on a certain political party. Many of these suspected white supremacists will deflect from obvious issues of racism and try to blame “the democrats” or “the liberals” for “all the problems of the Black community.”
So Melanoid people must understand, if you are ever engaging in a conversation with a person in the dominant society, and the discussion is about racial injustice, if they start deflecting into terms like:
or any other political term, you should suspect that the person is a white supremacist.
Because democrats and republicans are both dominated by white supremacists. And arguing about who’s the biggest white supremacist between the groups, is like a prisoner arguing about who’s the worst prison warden between two people.
