On the surface, white supremacy seems like a group of people who think they are better than others based on their skin color, but when you dive deeper into their psyche, you find a very immature and mentally stifled people, more afraid of how they are perceived by the world than the belief in their own rhetoric.
I recently watch a video about whiteness in which the speaker was very eloquently explaining what whiteness was. While trying to understand what he was saying, I found it to be a task to cut through some of the difficult phrasing used in the video and get right down to the meat of the message. After prescribing myself two aspirin and and glass of water for the headache I had now developed, I sat down again to give some thought to what was said. To the best of my understanding, In plain English, the speaker was saying, "whiteness" is a mindset and no one is born with that mindset, but taught it. He describes whiteness as a diseased mindset(these are my words paraphrasing what was said) when it grows into it's "mature" state. Thinking on what he implied whiteness was got me to thinking, whiteness is a sociopathic state of mind that effects a whole culture of people directly and most all other cultures both directly and indirectly through it's oppressive nature. A sociopath is someone who has no empathy towards others, but is only concerned about him or herself. The only addition whiteness has vs sociopaths is that the sickness of whiteness has evolved into a group practice for protection by strength in numbers and propaganda, whereas individual sociopaths are most often solely concerned with self.
What Are The Characteristics Of A Sociopath?
Can" White" People be saved?
I thought well of course they can be saved.. can't they?
The answer is both a yes and no. The bible doesn't really speak about "white" people, and truth be told, there really are no white people, but there are people who call themselves "white". Many white people who are in all actuality pink, love being called white because they believe it declares their purity of race and in even more extreme views, the pureness of their souls. This is one reason many who are called "white" are very self-righteous and often spend and enormous amount of time comparing themselves to others by demeaning anyone who isn't identified as white. This sociopathic state of mind must be very tiring and takes a lot of effort to keep up the facade. Can you imagine having to be constantly reassured of your value by degrading others, having to constantly compliment and encourage each other, Your very happiness depending on others being made low?
The sociopath mindset goes contrary to what the word of God says. The word of God tells us to not think too highly of ourselves, and to esteem one another more highly than ourselves.
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
A sociopath who still wants to maintain a Christian image or facade will ignore that scripture or find some way to justify their behavior and mindset in spite of scripture, They may spit out something like "Judge not lest you be judge" or "we've all fallen short of the glory of God", and although those scriptures are also in the bible, they typically only use them to shut you up, while all the while not practicing any of it. To a real sociopath, even the bible is a tool to be used in order to make you submit to their manipulation, while boasting against you
In the book of Romans, Paul warned the gentiles not to have this boastful and arrogant mindset
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
Even though Paul clearly warned the gentiles to not boast against the branches (Israel) , the gentiles continue boasting against those branches. They feel comfortable boasting against those branches partly because many don't know who it is they are trying to oppress. Israel are the very people who are viewed as the lowest on the earth, the people who seemingly have nothing to offer in the eyes of the gentiles. This makes it easier for them to really try expressing their dominance over Israel, Israel being the so-called blacks which were scattered to the four corners of the earth, but that is another story in itself. Sometimes I just wonder what the response will be when messiah returns and says, when you did it to the least of these my brethren, you did it to me. When you did not do it to the least of my brethren, you did not unto me. So whether you believe so-called blacks are real Israel or not, one thing you will have to admit if you are honest, you most certainly believe they are the least...
The sociopath mindset can not understand having mercy on anyone he can't prosper from especially if they are black. There has to be a reason why he or she will give to the needy, and there is always an excuse not to. Usually the excuse will be ridiculing and lecturing the poor about not working, or accusing the poor of using their money to buy drugs, whether it is the actual truth or not.
Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
The sociopathic mindset of those wanting to be praised as "white" tend to distance themselves from the poor even the poor of their own kine who are also called "white" , or "white trash". Even the term they often use for their own poor implies they forsake their poor. An even stranger thing is how the discarded poor white person often times still pretends to be better than even the wealthiest black person. I have heard them say things like "Well at least i'm not a n*gger.
I think you all get my point. I could make several more points on this subject, but I find it sickening and choose to end it here even though it is somewhat of a jumbled incomplete thought still full of truth.
No. "White" people can not be saved, at least not the mindset itself. There is no redemption for a mindset which oppresses others while also desiring a form of worship. There is no redemption for a sociopathic mindset. But there is a chance for a person who has considered themselves "white" to repent of that mindset and humble themselves to true obedience to the word of God. That person, like everyone else, would have to repent of everything that is not Godly and believe on the messiah. This could not be a one time prayer, and then going back to the old self, but a constant renewing of the mind!
