[color=green]If it was called black empowerment it would also be twisted around into the same white supremacist nonsense about Blacks dominating whites</font color=green>
<br>Of course it would; white supremacists are highly ignorant people. The average white person, however, is not. The average anarchist white person is certainly not. Black empowerment is wholly more inclusive and appealing to non-blacks than simply "black power." I know that many who support the cause of black empowerment do not believe that it should matter what whites and non-blacks think, but the fact is that you can't deal with white supremacy without dealing with white people.
<br>As an anarchist, I oppose "black power" just as I oppose "white power," "worker power," and, of course, "state power." Power is the same across the board, and I don't seek its consolidation in the hands of the few. Power to "the people" is perhaps the only one I find supportable, but I would much rather support empowerment for all people.
<br>[color=green]This fear of whites has been around since at least slavery. </font color=green>
<br>For different reasons. Slavery, as we know it, has been abolished in the United States for almost 150 years, and no one is alive today who has experienced or remembers it. Unlike the average white person of 150+ years ago, I don't fear "nigger domination." I fear domination. I don't care who's oppressing me.
