The Pyramid Of White Supremacy


Mass murder

Violence – Lynching, hate crimes, police brutality

Calls for violence – KKK, Neo- Nazis, burning crosses

Discrimination – Racial profiling, mass incarceration, racial slurs, fear of POC, anti-immigration policies

Veiled racism – Victim blaming, racist jokes, Euro-centric curriculum, tokenism, cultural appropriation, racist icons

Minimization – White savior complex. “not all white people”, not believing POC experiences, denial of white privilege. “post-racism”. intentions > impact

Indifference – “There are two sides to every story”. apolitical beliefs. avoiding confrontation. “politics don’t affect me”
