Can white people in the USA be victims of racism?
Back to question

To be anti-racist is to be anti-white

The term "anti-racism" has been co-opted by racists intent on obliterating whites. It is used to undermine white communities, and a veiled attempt to couch the coming black supremacy in the language of social justice. This perspective sees the lopsided immigration from Asia and Africa into the West as evidence that these nations intend to wipe out white people. They argue that people should stay within their own home nations - e.g. "Africa for Africans" - and have no place in white countries. When they do move to the West therefore, the so-called "anti-racism" campaigns are part of a much more underhand plan to seize control of white territories. Proponents include Bob Whitaker, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
Discriminatory Misleading Offensive

The Argument

To be anti-racist is to be anti-white. This argument suggests that, since the United States was founded by white people on white values, diversifying the culture is a targeted effort to eliminate the white population. The preamble to the United States Constitution states: “for ourselves and for Posterity”. With the founding fathers being white, the country is not obligated to open their borders to any other race or ethnicity. Advocates for immigration are doing so with the intent to assimilate the white culture. The United States Census Bureau has predicted that non-Hispanic whites [in the United States] will lose their majority by 2043<sup><a class="ref-highlight" href="#reference-1">[1]</a></sup>, and if no measures are taken to prevent diversity, white people won’t have control of the country they founded. Deliberately inflicting on a group's conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part falls under the definition of genocide adopted by the United Nations in 1948<sup><a class="ref-highlight" href="#reference-2">[2]</a></sup>. No other nation faces the same external pressure to integrate immigrants into their society than the United States, the country which has the largest white population. With evidence proving whites becoming a minority, anti-racists use ‘solving the race problem’ to diminish the presence of whites<sup><a class="ref-highlight" href="#reference-3">[3]</a></sup>.

Counter arguments

There is no conclusive evidence to prove that a "white genocide" has been committed in any white-dominated country, let alone the United States. Similar claims have been made in South Africa, where white farmers were victims of large-scale killings based on race, however, South Africa’s government has declared these claims as "based on false evidence."[4] Whitaker’s mantra, anti-racist is code for anti-white, is considered to be a major proponent of the white genocide conspiracy theory, with nothing substantive to link diversity and the genocide of whites.[5]
