peace and hotep,
"If whites took care of their own communities by invested in their own communities, instead of investing in the global system of white supremacy that gave them returns - even though parochial and potentially nativist - what kind of impact could that have on people of other communities?",
Whites found or discovered and investested in acquiring
the resource of ofhers.
" Whites are upset because the guaranteed returns of globalization are not guaranteed anymore, the pensions, 401k's, etc. The system is turning on itself and if the discourse is framed correctly means that "whites" not of the 1% may potentially acknowledge some common ground with the 99%.",
Powerless Whites are upset again with Powerfull whites but are hesitant in their natural cycle of revolultion since non-whites are the new scapegoats.
"However the entrenched nature of these hierarchies may in fact be impossible to overcome which leads me to my question - what is the best practice?",
The best practice is replacing white supremacy with Justice.
"If racism cannot be overcome - is it best for "Whites" to be localized and racist instead of globalized and racist?",
iyah, racism is globalized and has never been local to its european origin.
White people have been compensating for what they have been missing on many fronts.
Looking for 'salve'vation.....by compensation
