The Aryan Nations (Divine Truth Ministries), the Ku Klux Klan, and other “Christian”, or non-Christian “hate” groups are all branches of a big white poisonous tree. You could eliminate these groups tomorrow and white supremacy would still exist. These groups are just local, overt expressions of the global system and they’re allowed to operate by the system of white supremacy as a scapegoat.
With overt racist groups like the KKK making trouble and occasionally being convicted, we’re tricked into believing that they, and people like them, are what racism is all about. We can isolate them and point our fingers at them, and from time to time, rejoice at justice being served for their crimes. This is what the system of white supremacy wants. You’re not pointing at the root, you’re pointing at the branches. All the while covert racism continues to operate—nothing has really changed—and their control of the world remains in tact.
Covert racism is a form of racial discrimination that is disguised and subtle, rather than public or obvious. Often unnoticeable or seemingly passive, it causes the most devastating effects.
While bigotry does exist in the world, if you believe racism is the same thing, then the system of white supremacy has deceived you.
