Anti-Blackness is the Core of White Identity, the White Psyche, and Emotional Reality

Inherent within White identity is the absolute need to oppress Black people. All one has to do is examine legal and historical facts into the present, and it becomes quite clear that the value of Whiteness is predicated upon oppressing Black people. Many academics and theorists have written about this, such as WEB DuBois, Price Cobbs and William Grier, Kwame Ture and Charles Hamilton, Dr. Alvin Poussaint, Toni Morrison, and Dr. Bobby Wright - to name a few.

It is important that we fully understand, and always maintain, that Whiteness, and Blackness are manufactured existences, established through White/Eurocentric terror, to produce and perpetuate positive and negative orientations for each, respectively. Simply put, White identity, and the collective White community has no value without the existence, and the perpetual oppression of Black people. In addition to it being attached to an inherent need and desire (per authors like Howard Zinn, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Joe Feagin and many others), there are psychological and emotional investments in validating oneself and/or the collective group as better, superior, good, moral, right - even though the entire reality of Whiteness rests upon ideological, educational, religious, political, governmental, legal, employment, economic, housing, language, medical, and all other institutional means that have been manufactured and made to constitute and reinforce the definition and legitimacy of what it means to be White.

For Black people, it is like we are living in the Twilight Zone, in an ongoing hell, amongst and within a psychopathic culture that not only has no empathy for human life, but even deeper, holds consistent contempt and hatred for anyone who identifies and/or is interpreted as Black. It is an anti-Black culture crated, sustained, and maintained by White people; embedded into the American cultural and value systems for White, non-White, and Black people to partake.

And so, we are here:
