Does the public know what "nationalism", white nationalism, and "white supremacy" actually mean?

Our vaunted media seems to take a lot for granted. They use these words and phrases, but most often, they fly over the heads of the public, clueless about the deep offenses that people of color feel.

How about a clear, concise definition of White Supremacy? What does it mean, how is it used, and why is it not only offensive to a huge slice of the nation, but why is it anti-American, anti-Constitutional, immoral, and wholly despicable?

The press seems unwilling to venture into this territory. Why is that? No, it's not so elementary that White Supremacy needs no further explanation. That's taking a lot for granted, and we can take NOTHING for granted.

White Supremacy means that people of Caucasian ancestry are SUPERIOR to people from African, Asian, or other general genetic origins. The logical extension of the notions of White Supremacy has already been practiced in the 1930s and 1940s in Europe. We know how that worked. Those who were not pure Aryans were viewed as Subhuman.

Oh. I nearly forgot. Those of Hispanic heritage are mostly a hybrid mix of genetic origins, so they don't qualify, in white supremacists' eyes, as White. They are deemed as INFERIOR to whites and necessarily must be treated as subhumans.

Explanations like these should be told and re-told until it becomes clear that White Supremacy is a blight on humanity. But the manner in which it's being presently treated conveys an implication that it's just another way of looking at people, on equal footing with religion, economics, and social discussions.

1. K&R, No they don't. Most people don't delve into the world of hating people so those hate views..

... need to be defined and illuminated for what they are.

3. White Supremacy has victims in a very granular sense.

Those gritty, violent, and despicable details do not reach white folks at the margins who, seriously, don't grasp the meanings of the words. They don't understand that White Supremacy necessarily means that nonwhites are subhuman, just as German Nazis believed that non-Aryans are subhuman-- and therefore worthy of extermination in the effort to exalt and glorify pure Aryans. In today's media and social networks, the details of the White Supremacy belief system are glossed over as if White Supremacy is something akin to the Brotherhood of Elks or the Kiwanis Clubs. It's as if White Supremacy is some lost orphan that good white Southerners somehow forgot, and are now developing a warm nostalgia over. The abject horribleness of White Supremacy isn't elucidated. It should. Every day.
