The History of “Racism”

Alabama

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term “racism” first appeared in English in the United States in 1936 in a fascist pamphlet by Lawrence Dennis called The Coming American Fascism: The Crisis of Capitalism.

It is pretty clear that “racism” was in use in other European languages before English. The origin of “racism” is commonly attributed to either the Jewish communist Leon Trotsky (1930) or the Jewish sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld (1934).

In 1939, a Roper poll found that 7 out of 10 Americans believed that blacks were less intelligent than Whites. More than 8 out of 10 Americans believed that blacks should be prevented by law or social pressure from living in White neighborhoods. At that time, the Jim Crow South and much of the West practiced segregation while restrictive covenants and sundown towns were commonplace in the Midwest.

In 1942, 42 percent of Whites believed that blacks were as intelligent as Whites, 30 percent believed blacks and Whites should attend integrated schools, 51 percent believed that blacks and Whites should be segregated in public transportation, and 62 percent were bothered by the thought of having black neighbors.

In 1946, a poll found that 53 percent of Whites believed that blacks were as intelligent as Whites – this was first time in American history that a majority of White Americans professed to believe in racial equality.

By 1952, 78 percent of Whites believed that blacks were as intelligent as Whites, 49 percent believed blacks and Whites should attend integrated schools, 60 percent believed that blacks and Whites should not be segregated in public transportation, and 52 percent of Whites were not bothered by the thought of having black neighbors.

In the video below, “racism” comes into circulation in the English language in the late 1930s and explodes in usage around 1960. The first use of “racist” as an adjective was in 1938 which was also the year the American Anthropological Association passed its first resolution that condemned “racism.”

Like its counterpart ‘anti-semitic’, the term ‘racism’ is anti-semantic. Real words have meaning. These anti-semanticisms are nonsense terms to contrived to screw (jew) the brains of Whitey and guilt him with false sins. When Jews say someone is anti-semitic, what they are saying is that like Ian Flemming’s S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – this organisation does not tolerate criticism. Jews don’t do criticism – that gives them the heebejeebies. Furthermore, they are not semites unless they have ancestry from a Semitic people – which the Ashkhenzim do not. Racism is a meaningless term because every single ethne on the planet prefers its own… Read more »

Merriam-Webster claims the first use dates to 1933. I believe a French variant was in use prior. In any case, it is a good example of how the Jews have used our strong sense of morality and fairness against us: by making the one of the most basic human instincts, ethnocentrism, into a sin of the worst kind in the ersatz religion of PC.

Oh, it’s not an Ersatz religion.

It IS a religion. It is the Antichrist religion of the modern era.

Gary North was correct. ‘There is no neutrality. You can’t fight something with nothing.’

All of life is religious. It just depends on WHICH religion you are preaching.

The continued antichristian sentiments on this board, and on Daily Stormer, clearly show TWO, and only two, religions operative in the world today.

Just because the Antichristians don’t know they are following a creed, and a liturgy as proscribed as the ancient rites of Christendom, don’t make it any less a ‘faith.’

Racism as a problem to be remedied, according to the jews and blacks, was a form of classism, and was supposed to be the name for redressing that class exploitation of blacks way back in the 60’s and 70’s. But the reality is that if either group really had wanted to try to balance out some of the unavoidable extremes of classism, they would have just called out classism. Instead they created this term to simply dispossess and disenfranchise Whites, while pretending the goal was to end classism’s exploitations. The Civil Rights movement pretended to incorporate white lower and middle… Read more »

“Racism” is a category term used by liberals to make taboo anything they dislike.

It implies that any racial preference is bad in a universal sense, forgetting that it most commonly occurs in a local sense:

I would like to live among my own kind.

That is universally true for every group, whether white, black or Asian.

“Like its counterpart ‘anti-semitic’, the term ‘racism’ is anti-semantic. ” – its a non-word that means only what the speaker wants it to mean.

On the contrary. About 80% of Jewish males and 50% of Jewish females can trace via their DNA, ancestry back to the Middle East:

These numbers are suspicious. First the polling were probably driven by an agenda in an attempt to change the opinions of whites. Secondly claimed opinions are very probably not sincere considering the phenomenon of white flight that is still the general result of neighborhood integration.

…yes, ot, but they always talk about the “shrinking middle class,” WHEN WILL SOMEONE point out that we have a very, very healthy middle class, it’s just that they are immigrant, scholarship students, or military, or schoolteachers or obamacare doctors, lol. The OLD middle class (that valued creativity) and were wasps, descendents of the u.s. founders, etc, etc…and they have shrunk. but there is definitely a big, fat (often literally, lol) “middle class.”

Blacks and jews used the idea of empowering the white middle class as a means of eventually displacing it. This is simply the truth. Trying to blame it all on white feminists (I’m not accusing you of this necessarily) is stupid because when jews and blacks shifted towards hyping the holohoax and white privilege white feminists had already jumped off the bandwagon; this happened during the early 80’s. White racialists need to question how whites got into the mess we’re in now. Lies to white women and the white middle class enabled Diversity Cult to take over. I personally think… Read more »

Interesting link about how different NY and NJ were historically from New England vis a vis the Civil War, race, etc. To be a founding stock white in some parts now is practically a crime, that’s how intense the hostility is towards my ethnicity/race, especially if you’re female and have the extreme ‘aryan’ look. I was asked by an arab shop or stall keeper in Union Square, NYC, once if I ‘came from Europe,’ that’s how foreign my nordic looks seemed to someone who I guess thinks he can speak to who is an american.

Incredible.

Any English word ending in ISM is by definition an ideology. Ideologies are modern creations based upon values which are by definition relative – see the work of Nietszche “The Birth of Tragedy and the Geneology of Morals”. A value is what I or you value [prize]. You value wealth, someone else values racial supremacism, etc. The only determinant of value is will. The values of the the most powerful group prevail. That is ideological and dialectical thinking. The West has never reasoned like this. The West reasons on the classical basis of anti-thesis and non-contradiction in terms. The Christendom… Read more »

To whom it may concern, Stop running from your own shadows. Stop being a stranger to yourself in your own skin. There’s a better than average chance that you are a liar or loon if you claim to not be a Race-ist while continually promoting White autonomy and/or complaining about the destruction of multiculturalism. Multicultural/Multiracial societies take a tremendous amount of energy and devotion to ignore reality and pretend that what you see isn’t really what you see; that what you know isn’t really what you know; that any facts you have to support your case must be biased; and… Read more »

Calling someone a racist is committing an ad hominem fallacy. You can assault a race realist’s character all day long, but that won’t change that he/she is right. There is something I don’t understand, though. In the book, Why Race Matters, Michael Levin said that racism is inherently bad. He then said that if there are good reasons to discuss racial differences in intelligence then it cannot be racist. I would love to meet Levin someday and listen to him explain his reasoning on that. I don’t think that racism is inherently bad, but I’m curious about whether it would… Read more »

What race do people consider themselves on here? ‘Caucasian?’ ‘White?’ ‘European?’ There are numerous problems in my view with grounding ‘whites’ struggle in terms of ‘race,’ but the question I pose here is – where do people draw the lines around their ‘race?’ I ask because where I come from it seems very difficult to speak in terms of race for many of those numerous problems, one of them being that to try to corral incredibly disparate groups like italians, jews, and even eastern europeans to a lesser extent in one ‘race’ just seems bizarre. Southern italians are about as… Read more »

Caucasian is the over all race, but there are many ethnicities within our race. For instance, most people here are Southrons.

Your problem, Yankee, is that you’re confusing “ethnicity” with “race”.

Does ‘white’ include the north africans, as the technical definition of ‘caucasian’ does? Western society is hemorrhaging from a sucking chest wound and you want to talk about technicalities like there’s some omnipotent arbitrator of Whiteness handing out name tags and trying to meet a quota? Who gives a shit! I’ll stand up for just about any sane and decent person who considers themselves White and believes in some form of racial nationalism. If some other “racist” doesn’t like my inclusive definition and wishes to adhere to their own exclusive formula, then they can keep their distance from me. Having… Read more »

“Why do you continue to give spurious LEGITIMACY TO THE CHRIST-KILLERS, unless you ARE ONE?”

I’d rather be a Jew than a de-frocked RC priest like yourself. Unfortunately I don’t have any trace of Ashkenazi ancestry.

BTW, all the ancient Canaanite tribes were Semitic both linguistically and genetically. Start reading books besides the Bible. You might actually learn something that is true for a change.

The Crown (of Jewry) is currently HQ’d in the The City within London – the sq mi.

In the Guildhall preside the tribal idols of Ashkhenaz (a Japethic people) – these are the two wicker giants (Nephilim) of Gog and Magog. The Biblical Gog and Magog designated by its tribal gods. The fact of Japethic tribal ancestry is there for anyone who wants to look at it.

The American Anthropological Association probably issued that statement not long after Carlton S. Coons was kicked out as president. Coons of the book, “The Races of Man”. Boas, a Jew, took over and now the institution is useless. Coons books are very good. He even talks about the difference in temperament of the different races.
