Yet not all black people are the same here in America but are labeled the same through the white supremacist construct which is a European invention used to divide and conquer. Nationalized Supremacy based on skin color is not only 'racist', it is evil, and white people have been using it in this country to assert their unlawful authority. Eventually, the white supremacists will destroy itself just as you saw Hitler do in Europe. If Hitler had simply conquered Europe he would've probably won. When he brought white supremacy into the equation, he simply doomed himself.


Good joke. The only non-white country with very significant power fought on Hitler's side.

White people are not a race. The race they belong to is human. Being white is more accurately described as an ethnicity or a cline.


I believe it's more broadly accepted to refer to humans as a species, white/asian/etc. as races, and Irish/Korean/etc. as ethnic groups.


Yes, but that is more of a colloquial misunderstanding than accurate biological taxonomy. Granted, race is a pretty loosely defined term in that field as well and as such us considered informal in biology, but still.

It is better to define "white" people as a caste since the criteria for being white vary across time, nations, and even different communities within nations. The "white" people refer to the European myth of certain humans who differ from other humans by their innate biological difference. The European imperialists enforce this white people myth to justify unimaginable brutality toward non-Europeans with support from psuedo science and rigged "scientific" experiments.
