QUOTE OF THE DAY: White Supremacy Gets a Tan

CNN contributor John Blake has warned that racial diversity can be a form of white supremacy.

THE QUOTE

“The assumption that more racial diversity equals more racial equality is a dangerous myth,” Blake wrote in a column Saturday. “Racial diversity can function as a cloaking device, concealing the most powerful forms of White supremacy while giving the appearance of racial progress.”
  • “Racism will likely be just as entrenched in a browner America as it is now,” he went on. “It will still be White supremacy, with a tan.”
  • Blacke pointed to Latinos and mixed-race people as groups that may perpetuate “systemic racism” even as America’s white majority dwindles.

SYSTEMIC INDEED

Racial diversity can be added to a list of unexpected tools of white supremacy that includes farmers’ markets, chess and dogs.
