You can never escape it. Everything is always about white supremacy, even if no one is white.
CNN faced scrutiny over the weekend after it published an analysis article claiming it was a “myth” that White supremacy would fade away as America became more diverse.
In the Saturday article, CNN Enterprise writer John Blake argued that “Whiteness” was elastic and that as the population became more diverse, as seen in the 2020 U.S. census report, White supremacy would adapt because being White could expand to incorporate new members, “if they have the right look.”
“Don’t ever underestimate White supremacy’s ability to adapt. The assumption that more racial diversity equals more racial equality is a dangerous myth. Racial diversity can function as a cloaking device, concealing the most powerful forms of White supremacy while giving the appearance of racial progress,” Blake wrote.
“Racism will likely be just as entrenched in a browner America as it is now. It will still be White supremacy, with a tan,” he added.
