White supremacy is the evil and destructive ideology of racial hierarchy with whiteness at the top and blackness at the bottom.
On white supremacy, Bryan Stevenson (from Just Mercy) wrote, “The great evil of American slavery wasn’t the involuntary servitude; it was the fiction that black people aren’t as good as white people, and aren’t the equals of white people, and are less evolved, less human, less capable, less worthy, less deserving than white people. That ideology of white supremacy was necessary to justify enslavement, and it is the legacy of slavery that we haven’t acknowledged.”
