August 10,2018 | This weekend, a group called “Unite the Right” is planning an alt-right, “white civil rights” rally at Lafayette Square in Washington DC. The organizer, Jason Kessler, had hoped to hold the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but due to the violence that broke out last year, his request for a permit was denied. Last week he received final approval from the Park Service to host his rally in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, August 12.

Question: What is the difference between a white Civil Rights rally (which a majority of Americans condemn) and a national holiday honoring a Declaration of Independence that glorifies ‘discovery’ and dehumanizes native people as ‘merciless Indian savages’ (which virtually all Americans celebrate)?
I would argue there is very little difference.

July 8, 2018 | Two nonprofits are criticizing Amazon for allowing its platforms to spread white supremacy and racism, identifying in a report how shoppers can buy onesies for babies stamped with alt-right images, Nazi-themed action figures and anti-Semitic books and music.

The report, which was released on Friday by the Partnership for Working Families and the Action Center on Race and the Economy, said Amazon’s policies allow it to bar hateful or offensive merchandise and content, but the policies are “weak and inadequately enforced” and allow hate groups to “generate revenue, propagate their ideas and grow their movements.”

Justice Not Jails was formed in 2012 to combat the way white supremacy finds expression in the American criminal justice system.
We thought it would be interesting and valuable to offer this short "quiz" on white supremacy. We have set it up as a survey so that we can easily tabulate the responses and even report back on some of the insights you give us.
 

Along with those insights, we will report back what we think are the correct answers to each question in a subsequent edition of this e-letter (we do recognize that there is ongoing debate around a number of these questions).

Part 1: The White Problem

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/The%20White%20Problem.jpg

I don’t think I was born white. I think white children are manufactured.

Quinn Norton, the Message / Medium

Oct 3, 2014 | Contained in the struggle between black liberation and white supremacy is almost every issue that concerns us currently — Surveillance, government control, privacy, security, maintenance of infrastructure — even pollution, environmentalism, and what has become climate change, they’re all there.

Add to that tolerance of religion and non-religion, access to healthcare, dominion over one’s own body, the right of self-defense, the right of free expression, the desire for justice and equality. Each one of these issues is there in black liberation, and often explored at length long before this current generation was born.

This is no accident, no coincidence, because the making of black and white was the making of the world we know now.

Part 2: How White People Got Made

Whiteness is one of the biggest and most long-running scams ever perpetrated.

Quinn Norton, the Message / Medium

Oct 17, 2014 | It started in the late 1600s in America, but like so many scams, it spiraled out of control until it had a life of its own.

Not long after Europeans started arriving on the east coast of North America and the Caribbean Islands they found themselves rich in land but desperate for labor to work the land. The answer they struck upon was importation of bond labor, initially mostly Irish. The Irish had not been considered fully human under English law for centuries, and they ended up in plantations and working sugar under the Caribbean sun. The easy part of importing Irish (and Scottish) slave labor was that they were right next to England. The downside is there wasn’t enough of them for the amazing amounts of land laid before the eager English settlers, and thus the Atlantic slave trade with Africa was born. This is the story we hear in school, but the abridged version we get, intentionally or not, hides the scam of it. Initially the bond terms of convict, Scotch-Irish, and African labor was a set period of time, at the end of which they received bond money and their freedom in this new land. In fact, not that many bondsmen and women lived to be free, but some did, and established themselves as a mixed-race, free peasantry of the new world. If you’ve ever wondered where the free blacks of so many stories of early America came from, a large number were the families of freed African bond laborers.
