White Women's Role in White Supremacy

I don't often blog specifically about white supremacy, as I think it is important to focus on the positive.  However, white supremacy is all around us - and inside of us - and we need to understand it.  

This is a very interesting article about white women's role in white supremacy, both historic and current.  White women were among the architects of white supremacy.  Until they won the right to vote, white women's main economic power came through their ability to own, buy and sell enslaved African people.  

After the Civil War, white women joined, and were active in, the Ku Klux Klan.  And, of course, Birth of a Nation contributed to the mythology of the Klan as a necessary protection of white women from Black men who were keen, and naturally inclined, to attack them sexually.  In the film Freedom Riders, some of the participants speak of the involvement of white women in assaulting the riders. 

According to this article, white women also played an active role in the recent storming of the Capitol building, in which five people died, and they are active, and play key roles, in white supremacist organisations.

Black Ballerinas

I've been enjoying looking at pictures of Black ballerinas.  This is Michaela DePrince, a ballerina from Sierra Leone.  Doesn't she look amazing?  Look at those legs.  Those feet.  

She was orphaned in the Sierra Leone civil war.   Go here to read her story

I've got loads more on my Positive Images of Black People board.

Spree of Executions during Trump's Final Days

In what NBC News has called a "spree" of Federal executions, Donald Trump has ordered the Federal executions of five more people.  Four of them are Black men, including Brandon Bernard, who was arrested at the age of 18.  The government's scheduling timeline violates the federal death penalty law.

This makes Trump the "President" to order the most Federal executions in over 130 years.  The Republican administration had not ordered any executions for 17 years - until July of this year.  

According to a recent report by the Death Penalty Information Center, there is a history of racism in the criminal injustice system which dates back to slavery, lynching and segregation.  Well, we already knew that, but it's still useful to hear it. 

See also:  How to Escape the Prison System.    

See also:  Life Sentence for Stealing $9.  

See also:  83 Days, about George Stinney, who was executed at the age of 14. 

See also:  New Revelations about Emmett Till, who was murdered at the age of 14.  "The system rested on violence, and America let that happen."   The murder of Emmett Till galvanised people to fight racial injustice and ultimately led to the Civil Rights movement.  But today, this racism and criminal injustice continues. 

This story was also covered by The Guardian and the BBC.

Success Strategies with Zhana: 2020 Year-End Roundup


If you missed the 2020 year-end roundup, you can still listen to it here.  

We had a lot to talk about.   So much has happened in 2020.  

What are the parallels between the killing of Breonna Taylor and the shooting of Cherry Groce?  

Do people in the U.S. know about what is happening here in the UK and in other countries?  And when they find out, what do they think?  

We didn't talk about the racist comments about the Sainsbury's ads.  What did you think?  Please share this with your networks and please comment below.
