When “Non-white” is a Cover—PART I.

I recently initiated a private message FaceBook conversation with a person who appeared to be “Asian”. His name appeared to be “Chinese.” I am changing his name to protect his identity. I offer the conversation to demonstrate the counter-racist utility of calling all forces into the foxhole and aiming for all others :
Wondering, sir. What if almost all people who are now called “black” took the stance that black is a “position” not a phenotype. And, that we would, henceforth, regard as “white” all people who insist they are not black. Would you start calling yourself black?
Mr. Chen:
What if you’re not black or white? Do you not exist to the world for people who only see the world in binary terms?
Unfortunately, since we currently exist in a global system of racism (white supremacy), that is all there are. White and (-)white. Inmate and non-inmate in an open-air prison. All else is deception perpetrated by the racists (white supremacists). Do you decline to answer the question?
Mr. Chen:
You didn’t say white and non-white. You said black and white.
Correct. There are no optically black people. A black person is a political term. Either one is a victim of the system of racism (white supremacy) or one is not. That is binary. Mathematically, the opposite of white is black. That is, (-)white = black. Everything else is playing around.

Mr. Chen:
Black is not just a political term. It is an identity, a history, a culture as are other identities.

What do all black people have in common besides being a victim of racism (white supremacy)?

Mr. Chen:
Why did you message me?

Debriefing: I did not use the term the term “non-white.” Yet, Mr. Chen was anxious to use it. The term, “non-white,” was the term of choice for a person who does not want to answer the question, “What do all black people have in common besides being a victim of racism (white supremacy)?” I suspect that Mr. Chen greatly prefers the term,, “non-white” because it allows him to practice deception on black people. Now, what should I conclude about such persons?

    Agree 1000%.

    A neighbor was one of the fools making gentrifiers feel comfortable moving onto the block….until they called the “authorities” on him for keeping his dog in his backyard rather than having it indoors.

    You separate by how I said previously. I’m talking more social separation. You have to work and if you work around white people this is something you’re just going to have to do. The same with going to college. No way of getting around that. But you don’t have to go to happy hour with them or any other social activity other than when you HAVE to be around them. That is the type of separation I’m talking about. It seems to me just being around them tends to pacify black people. We seem to love being close to the master. I may even be talking mental separation. To be totally separated from those who hold our very being in the palm of their hands is an impossibility. But we don’t have to be involved with them socially. They are very deceitful and skilled at pretending they think something of black people when they don’t.

    I just heard a reference to the NBA finals on tv and referred to the Heat as Labron and his gang. See the subtleness. If you’re not skilled in the art of being aware of their skill at deceit, those words will just go in one ear and out the other. But this is a jab at the Miami Heats “blackness”.

    Getting back on the topic, I work with mostly white people every day. It’s strictly business. I never go to happy hours with them or anything outside of having to work with them. I have separated from them socially yet I work with them every day. This is the separation I’m talking about. I don’t want to go to happy hour, I don’t want a white girlfriend, I don’t want to go other their house or them come to mine. As long as you are socializing with them, you will constantly be bombarded with deceit and lulled into a false sense of security.

    I do agree that black people have been well-trained, maybe even genetically programmed, to crave white people. We will have to design our response to deal with that. As for white people’s counter-response, one must keep in mind that a superior defense is necessary to prevail over any opponent. White people and black people share a planet, a universe. As long, as racism (white supremacy) is the dominant socio-material system of the known universe, how can black people ever separate from white people?

  4. EastSideFlyer Says:

    You have more faith than I do. White people would have to lose power for racism to be eliminated…like a disease or something that would only effect them. But if that were to happen, I think they’d destroy the world rather than die and let non-whites run it. At best I think we can only leave social integration alone. Work with them, go to school with them but outside of that, separate from them. Only be with them on a necessary basis. But we love them so much that I can’t see that happening no matter what they do to us because they are so skillful at mind manipulation with their technology.

    EastSideFlyer, I agree that he does not intend to ever say he is black but would say he is white in a hot second. I do, however, believe that the system of racism (white supremacy) can be eliminated without the admission or consent of the racists (white supremacists) because it has been shown that crime can be stopped without either. Further, I expect racism (white supremacy) to be eliminated while I am still alive and while I am still healthy enough to appreciate it.

  6. EastSideFlyer Says:

    A non-black/non-white person will never consider themselves black under any circumstances but will consider themselves white easily. It seems this is what this person is doing by not outright saying he would never consider himself black because he wouldn’t. That would have been the end of the conversation. But they won’t admit this. It’s like the problem of racism. I feel the problem will never be solved unless the white person admits they are racist but for some reason they won’t do this even though they know they are. So the problem of racism is an unsolveable one. It would take a divine entity to correct this problem
