In an article entitled “A Revealing Racist Rant in L.A.” the Times claimed that white supremacy is “not confined to white people, and non-whites engaging in white supremacy is called “lite supremacy.” Apparently, “lite supremacy” is when “fairer-skin people perpetuate a modified anti-Blackness.”
The theory of “lite supremacy” suggests “that with the browning of America, white supremacy could simply be replaced by — or buffeted by — a form of ‘lite’ supremacy, in which fairer-skin people perpetuate a modified anti-Blackness rather than eliminating it.”
The recent racist rant by a Latino city council member in Los Angeles demonstrated the phenomena of “Lite Supremacy,” according to the NYT. The article explained that “She insulted people in the crudest, most racially offensive ways, comparing a colleague’s Black son to a monkey and appearing to insult Oaxacans — people from the disproportionately Indigenous Oaxaca region of Mexico — by calling them ‘little short dark people’ who are ‘ugly.’”
The NYT’s argument sought to contrast the L.A. city council member’s comments with intersectional feminism. It reads, “Instead of allying with other disadvantaged groups, they diminished them.”
Breitbart pointed out that the article’s author followed it up by suggesting that concern over demographic replacement is “the definition of racism.” Breitbart also demonstrated that Blow, the author of this essay, has a long history of race-baiting in the mainstream media.
While “lite supremacy,” is being trotted out as a new weapon for the Left to use against the wave of brown and black people fleeing the Democrats, the mainstream media has not abandoned its tried and true method of comparing Republicans to Jim Crow. Indeed, as reported by Breitbart, Joy Reid compared Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., to Jim Crow because he is concerned about election integrity.
