On Thursday, I received the horrible news of the transitioning of a brilliant Black woman, fantastic writer, true counter-racist soldier and from everything that I have seen and heard from her, a wonderful soul, Pamela Evans Harris, known affectionately by all within the loose configuration of counter-racists as simply Pam. Far too few were aware of this giant and her liberation focused work, who has now ascended to the realm of the ancestors, but her colossal efforts should be saluted. Pam was the co-writer of four books which I would consider to be essential reading in gaining clarity on the system of racism/white supremacy from the perspective of a victim who is sincerely attempting to become less confused and contribute to solving THE problem. These books, Trojan Horse: Death of a Dark Nation; Black Love Is A Revolutionary Act; The Interracial Con Game & The Beauty Con Game, were essential in helping me understand the system of racism/white supremacy to the degree that I do (whatever that may mean, I’m still learning, and I’m still a victim), as well as giving me an understanding of how much I need to learn, and how far I, and we still need to go.

On one of her many appearances on the Context of White Supremacy (COWS) internet radio program, the late, great grandcestor, Dr. Frances Cress-Welsing relayed a very interesting anecdote. She spoke about how she once came across a “well meaning” white person who I believe attended one of Dr. Welsing’s talks, and attempted to appear to be sincerely interested in helping produce justice. She, very similarly to the famous scene in the Malcolm X movie, tried to make it clear that she was “not racist” and was very interested in helping to eliminate racism/white supremacy. She, as a white person, claimed to be confused about what she could do in order to assist in such a task, and asked Dr. Welsing exactly what she could do to help. Dr. Welsing, quite brilliantly as per usual, simply answered that what she could do is “tell Black people what whites talk about (regarding Black people) when Black people are not around”. The book, Two Faced Racism, Whites in the Backstage and Frontstage, written by two white people, Leslie Houts Picca and Dr. Joe R. Feagin, brings the readers, many like myself, who do not and will never have unfiltered, “fly on the wall” access to all-white, closed off environments, into the spaces where whites are free to be themselves and speak their minds and feelings freely. They reveal what is often said and done in environments where whites are free to spout all of their views about Black people and racism with no regard to “political correctness” or whatever other societal restrictions which are supposed to guide polite speech and behavior. They bring us into a world in which Black people can only imagine and speculate on the nature of the conversation concerning racial matters that take place among whites, with an insight that could only be delivered by a white person who is familiar with these scenes and the mentality of those involved, from firsthand experience.

I contend that one very large impediment to Black people eliminating the system of racism/white supremacy is our inability or our refusal to “connect the dots”. By connecting the dots, I mean being able to understand how the multiple sub-institutions (the so-called government, the military, law enforcement officials (slave catchers, race soldiers), the mis/dis-education system, the prison industrial system, the media, and so on) all work in concert to enforce the system of racism/white supremacy in all areas of people activity. But It also refers to our inability or refusal to be able to connect the dots of history, observations, facts and logic, to be able to better understand how everything that has happened in the past has led up to and continues to have a great impact on the conditions of the world today, especially concerning the world’s greatest problem for Black people, which is racism, and then using that understanding to inspire a permanent change in our thoughts, speech and actions. This forgetfulness has a very deleterious effect on our ability to truly understand and correctly perceive our condition, as well as being able to correctly and accurately identify those who are the ultimate creators and cause of our condition. I’m not even necessarily just referring to being able to know and understand the impact of something as historically ubiquitous as the Trans-Atlantic enslavement trade, our subsequent extreme mistreatment during our enslavement, or later Jim Crow has had on our condition, (although these things are very vital to study if you want to gain a complete understanding of our condition). I’m simply referring to being able to remember things that have happened as recently as a year or even a few months ago, and having that be the impetus to understanding the fact that we are at war for our survival, and having that be the catalyst for the change, the permanent change, in our behavior and outlook that is necessary to solve our problem, THE problem.

I and many others have said that those who practice a system based on injustice, mistreatment, oppression and cruelty are demonic by nature, and that the system of white supremacy is inherently a diabolically evil system. This is despite the fact that white supremacists have hi-jacked terms such as Christian Identity, which is a term which makes a clear and obvious association with the religion of Christianity, a religion that is presumed and promoted by many of its adherents to represent all that is good and pure. But Christian Identity, despite its association with Christianity, is essentially a white supremacist distortion of the religion, and has become synonymous with racism and terrorism. But with deeper study of the system of racism/white supremacy, I’ve found that the description of racial extremism as “demonic” is actually much more factually accurate then I originally thought. In my studies in attempting to become less confused and attempting to understand racism/white supremacy, what it is and how it works, as well as the people who practice, maintain and promote it, I recently within the last year or two have become fascinated with what is referred to as the Alt-Right and other lesser known but just as dangerous groups of white identity extremists.
