Whites do it differently
Our people can be maddening. White Advocates could have invented the skin head look from all the hair they’ve pulled out in frustration. Why won’t they take their own side? Where’s their ethnocentrism? Another hunk is ripped out with another question asked.
That apparent lack of ethnocentrism is what I want to address. White Advocates grumble that our people aren’t ethnocentric. But they are. White Advocates also grumble that our people are universalistic. They’re that too. The mixing of those 2 things is key to understanding white people. For universalism is how our ethnocentrism is manifested.
Too many mistakenly think that universalism is a contemporary malaise affecting us. It has always defined us. One need only look at our history of empire building.
When Alexander the Great marched his armies out of Greece, he did so to spread the superiority of Greek culture. Roman rulers following in his footsteps did the same thing with the ways of the Eternal City. Christian countries such as Spain set out to convert the natives. The British took up the White Man’s Burden. And Americans justify their military adventures today by saying they’re setting people free so they can shop and vote.
Compare this to when non-whites conquered others. The Aztecs simply desired a steady supply of human sacrifices. The Mongols didn’t want to make others horse lords. In fact, they became new Middle Kingdom emperors of China. For Muslims it was more profitable to let those conquered stay who they were because of the money made from the Dhimmi tax. And Jews aren’t bulldozing into the West Bank to make Palestinians kosher.
Only whites go abroad to convert others to their ways.
It is an expression of who we are. It is not a poison of Christianity or Communism. Those things have a hold on us because they touch something innate in us. Unlike Buddhism or Sikhism, Christianity and its doctrine of all souls equal before God would be lapped up by a naturally universalistic people. It shouldn’t be surprising that it became our dominant faith at the time of an already culturally and politically universalistic empire (Rome).
As for Communism, it always takes two forms with us. Either the One-World, everyone made the same tyranny or the everyone should share everything with everyone else ninnydom. Whereas with non-white, from Ho Ji Min to AOC, it’s always a form of get from whitey what he owes us racial revenge. Communism didn’t make us universal. It twisted something already inside us into a ugly and suicidal knot.
Our universalism is our ethnocentrism. The ethnocentrism of other groups is that only they are them. But ours is that everybody is like us or should be. We see ourselves as the standard for humanity. What could be more ethnocentric than that? This is why taking the Red Pill on race is so devastating for so many: it contradicts an innate part of our mindset.
Whites as the epitome of mankind is also displayed by our distaste for those who go native. Railing against Cultural Appropriation is nothing new. Alexander’s generals saw him as losing his Greekness when he appeared to be becoming too Persian. Many viewed Caesar with suspicion after hooking up with Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Kurtz in Heart of Darkness must be stopped because he’s become as savage as the natives. And women out West were no longer seen as white if under injun captivity for too long. Just check out the great John Wayne film The Searchers. If whiteness is the natural way then there’s nothing more unnatural than a white person not being so.
What better example of this is there than the wigger? No creature has garnered more snickering since I was a teenager in the 90’s then the white boy acting like he’s black. Everyone is disgusted by him. Whites see him as pathetically trying too hard and blacks see him as downright pathetic. At my job this past fall there was a white teen who fancied himself a rapper. I nicknamed him Slim Lazy (a play on Eminem’s Slim Shady). The majority of my coworkers are black and all laughed at him behind his back. “Fake rapper” was what they said most about him. One incident in particular stands out. He was talking about his black girlfriend and how he didn’t like white girls while we were all working and suddenly blurted out, “I hate being white!”
In my head I silently wrote him off as a lost cause. My black coworkers weren’t so quiet. “No! No! Don’t say that!” “You shouldn’t hate yourself!” “You’re white!” He wasn’t one of them and never will be no matter how hard he tries. Their mockery of him when he wasn’t around and protests against his racial self-hatred give testimony to the fact that they weren’t touched by some skinny white boy trying to be a thug. Their ethnocentrism isn’t universal. Their Blackness isn’t abstract.
Wiggers are never held up to show we all bleed red. Whites point to Colin Powell or Obama as examples of how we are all the same. They never point to Eminem. Only non-whites acting white touch our universalism. The reverse never does.
Universalism and ethnocentrism can’t be separated in us. They are one and the same. Our race isn’t without ethnocentrism. Our race does do it differently from others however. Maybe it’s because we needed to assume others were like us so we could work together in order to survive the last Ice Age. Who knows. A much longer piece is needed to analyze where it come from and how to use it to save us. My goal is only to recognize it. Most White Advocates don’t. It’s time they did.
