    It's just racism. Don't confuse supremacy with superiority. It's more saying that white people are entitled to more rights than other people than that they are inherently superior. One can hardly look at Trump's white supremacist supporters and say that they are superior in any mental or physical way.

    This is a belief that white European people, usually meaning men, should be in charge of whatever country, they're in. Because whites are smarter. And in the majority.

    This is proved by comparing Europe history, to other places. Stating achievements of Greece, Rome, and other peoples. Contrasting to Africa, Asia, Americas.

    This is a term used to describe someone who has the idea that because they are white, they are better, or supreme to anyone of any other color. It is a derogatory term, and is used when someone is being mean or hateful towards people of color.

    It means when White People constitute a superior race and therefore dominate society. It mostly typically in the exclusion or detriment of particular group of black or Jewish people.

    Its an excuse to blame everything on white males. Most say white males had everything simply handed to them all of their lives. Anyone who has worked all of their lives for every little thing they have know that it is complete bull ---t.

    It gives others a chance to make excuses for their own failures or to sit around ail of their lives and never apply themselves to even try.

    The fact that there are very many successful POC in this country prove the white supremacy trope is a LIE. There are racists in this country and there are racists in every single group of people. But there is no white supremacy.

    What is going on right now is absolute insanity and pure race hate incited

     by people who do not have the best interests of the united states and POC in their hearts. And what is going on on the right wing is pure horse---t too. 40years of right wing mdia lies have brainwashed those people into blind hate also. 

    When two halves a country hate each other it is not going to stand for very long. Who wins? Communist China and Russia. Who loses? Every last human being who lives on this continent.

    My favorite example is when white men complain when women or minorities are promoted in a business, because the white men think that someone is being given preference over them. Then they sit around and complain about how incompetent their (white, male) bosses are! 

    To those with privilege, equality feels like oppression.

    "White supremacy" is the belief that "white people" are better than other people, should have more rights and power, etc. It's idiotic, of course, for many reasons, especially because "race" is not a scientifically measurable trait and doesn't objectively exist.

    White supremacy is the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups, in particular black or Jewish people.

    Yeah, that sounds fair and right. Not.

    99.99% of the time is is their response to something they don’t like, but don’t understand why they don’t like it.  And they don’t possess the ability to understand different perspectives, so they label it “white supremacy” to shut down the discussion.
