The Ku Klux Klan published a pamphlet online named The Color of Crime, which gives statistical "evidence" for innate violence in blacks and hispanics. The purpose of the pamphlet is to inform America that: Police aren't biased toward blacks and hispanics; the best indicator of violence is the presence of blacks and hispanics in a community, regardless of their education or affluence; youth gangs are not a white problem; statistics showing elevated violence in whites are inflated and false because they include hispanics; and that whites are the victims of genocide due to a constant influx of hispanics (which include mexicans), and the legal right of blacks to express their inner violence and lasciviousness. The Klan is strongly against racially tolerant policy for reasons like these. They believe racial bias guides America toward God's truth, wisdom, and love.
If you've never been on the Klan website, I encourage you to go there. Yes, I suspect it'll puts you on some government watch-list, but considering we're on all on some sort of NSA list anyway, we might as well make it worth it. What you'll find is probably not what you expect. No 'kill the blacks' or 'hispanics' or 'asians' mantra, but pro-white propaganda. Propaganda is inherently negative, and even though their site is positive toward one race, it's by default negative due to omission. The main quote on their home page, dare I say mission statement, is: "There is a race war against whites. But our people--my white brothers and sisters--will stay committed to a non-violent resolution. That resolution must consist of solidarity in white communities around the world. The hatred for our children and their future is growing and is being fueled every single day. Stay firm in your convictions. Keep loving your heritage and keep witnessing to others that there is a better way than a war torn, violent, wicked, socialist, new world order. That way is the Christian way--law and order--love of family, love of nation. These are principles of western Christian civilization. There is a war to destroy these things. Pray that our people see the error of their ways and regain a sense of loyalty. Repent America! Be faithful my fellow believers." The author of this passage is the National Director of The Knights, Pastor Thomas Robb, whom apparently doesn't own a history book, even one of his own group, considering the Klan began as an extremely violent group of white males.
The premises that whites and Christians are by design peaceful and loving is quite a flight from reality, and I'm not speaking from opinion. The white British settlers eradicated the Native Americans in less than a century; pre-Mandela South Africa was segregated and highly volatile toward blacks; the British essentially enslaved the Indians, creating the first exploitative international corporation East India Trading Company; hell, the Nazis' ideology was based in "waging" racial purity on the Jews, Gypsies, and intellectuals. There are many more instances of genocide waged by whites throughout history, it didn't just happen in one pocket of our human civilization. Thus, one of the Klan's slogans--Stop White Genocide!--is quite laughable.
In regard to Christians being peaceful and loving by design, I'll point to all the Inquisitions, the Holy Wars, and the overall intolerance of other organized religions and secular institutions. Christianity has smugly spilled more blood in the name of its beliefs than any secular cause, so I fail to understand how preserving it will increase love, peace and brotherhood. Only until recent history did the church lose its power to destroy blasphemes, maintaining a bitter relationship with government politicians whom wish to keep church and state fully separate.
Racism implies race identity, or certain behavioral characteristics and value systems innate to the race. These characteristics indicate a genetic or cultural predisposition toward certain choices; essentially it groups people together into distinctive Us.' Throughout history there have been a multitude of theories explaining differences in peoples across the world, but none have really solved the problem of predictability: Can you ultimately predict a person's behavior based on their race? No. You can talk about the physical variations and the statistics all you want, but no theory really had or has any scientific or behavioral project-ability or provability. Even the statistically saturated Klan doctrine above leans on reported crimes, completely avoiding abstract social power mechanisms which influence people to act and interact, despite their color. In other words, it never defines the creatures "White," "Black," or "Hispanic," it just shows us how nasty blacks and hispanics are through bar graphs over time. Nor does it explain how distinct races even exist despite humans having interacted and reproduced in nearly every continent sometime throughout history. Nor does it seem to care how scientists have found that 90% of genetic variations happen within an individual population, or in a population unaffected by an outside source. So there are clear loopholes here.
There are people much better versed to handle the sociological pathology implicit with racism. Or racialism, or whatever it wants to call itself. My curiosity it about the incentive behind being a white supremacist. Assuming they get their way and whom they deem as races are segregated for interbreeding purity purposes; how will that create a better world? I don't see the connection. It's possible I don't see it because I've failed to understand exactly how they define "better." Humans are social beings, but not collectivist, so no matter how many groups you separate them into there's going to be vices like infighting, jealousy, contempt, and arrogance. I haven't found any evidence that the claims of modern white supremacy directly lead to the utopia they envision.
