Guardians of Whiteness

Adam Efimoff - Why is there so much hatred towards Blacks in the USA?

Muhammad Rasheed - The hatred is a tool designed to protect the artificially-elevated social status of the white racist aristocracy. Whites will sacrifice their personal comforts and way of life to make sure they are ranked higher socially than Black people, and will deliberately sabotage programs to economically exclude Black people from mainstream society gains and perks.

"When whites saw a threat to their economic advantage over minorities, they were more likely to want to cut social safety net programs, but only if those programs were portrayed as primarily benefiting minorities. Not if they were portrayed as benefiting whites."
