The Murderous Scam White Elites Have Perpetrated on Blacks and Whites for at Least 4 Centuries

chainThe idea of “whiteness” as a strict racial category superior to others is an invention of Europeans, who needed to legitimate and normalize a system of white on black chattel slavery, global empire, and colonialism as being preordained by nature and God.
