I’ve been reading Yurugu by Marimba Ani. It’s important to know as much about yourself, as you do about your enemy.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu
And so it make complete sense that to understand white supremacy, we must understand the caucasian people who are behind it and their purpose for having the system exist. As we must understand ourselves within the system, and how it’s enslaved and oppressed us, so we can dismantle the mirage that is white supremacy.
So, I’ve paid close attention to the white albinos and when I came to live in America and I learned just how divided white people are with their rich vs. poor, black vs. white, boy vs. girl, liberal vs. conservative, propped by their me against the world attitude. It’s not just in the USA. They’ve kept up with this divisive attitude in Europe as well. In Scandinavia (one of the most oldest countries in all of Europe) they’ve kept up with this divide & conquer tactic through the Jante Law or Janteloven, which explains the high amount of racism there, as well as in the rest of Europe.
The purpose of the law of jante is suppose combat individualism (which is very popular among whites) as well as a personality trait among neanderthals as they are more inclined to be introverted and withdrawn, which is also a result of having lived in cold isolated communities. It’s the reason why whites develop all types of communication issues (Social Anxiety, Deppression Psychopathic Mental Disorder, AntiSocial Personality disorder, etc). They always have had issue living in communities with a lot of people, and it’s only recently that they’ve tried (yet failed) in confronting this issue in the form of white privelege and white supremacy and the so-called immigration issues.
So, the jante law is supposed to be a way of combating introversion within European white communities. It’s suppose to force you to think more about others, and to be considerate of your surroundings, because you can’t support your community very well if you’re going to isolate yourself and be an individual from your group of people. It’s also another reason why white people in Scandinavia get along with each other so well and are happy. But, of course, with increasing immigration in those countries, the Scandinavians along with the racist Finnish people, white people are really starting to question just why they have a ridiculous social law such as the Janteloven.
They’re going to have to start questioning the real reason of the Janteloven (like Southern Hospitality which is never extended to black people) and started because they don’t trust each other (they know about their animalistic/neanderthal characteristics) and plus if their force to deal with each other themselves, then other people non-white people won’t notice those animalistic traits neither. The janteloven, just as southern hospitality between whites, is just another tool of white supremacy. Follow the janteloven when you communicate to white people, yet there is no societal law for black people and people of other race, but there is racism. And immigration issues.
One light biracial woman told me that blacks choose to live in black areas because they’re insecure. That’s why she choose to live in a white suburb in Albuquerque, she told me.
In my opinion, we blacks choose to live in black areas because of economic and social advancement, we need to be around each other to work and advance one another. It’s smart. But, it’s also kinda smart to not completely isolate yourself from whites and sometimes be around them (not live with them) if you feel you must understand them more, just so you can develop your own opinion and own experiences with them, which are not produced by the media and Hollywood.
It’s helped me, and it also helped me to unlearn self-hate, as I have had whites take advantage of me as a black woman, so I couldn’t help but learn from the racism I experienced, as I certainly couldn’t ignore it. And for that I’m truly thankful!
So, learn about the enemies. Observe them carefully, so you can understand their social, as well as behavior patterns. Having lived in Scandinavia and Finland, and experiencing the janteloven there, I know a lot more about their social patterns as a result, and it’s helped me deal with white people, as it would help you to learn how to deal with your enemy.
