What Is White Supremacy? A Teach In, Q&A, And Discussion

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

We will hear two presentations; one from Daryle Lamont Jenkins of One People's Project, and another from Philly Antifa followed by a Q&A and a facilitated discussion. Both One People's Project and Philly Antifa are actively working to expose and thwart the agenda of white supremacist organizations both here in the tri-state area and beyond. Daryle will cover how the white supremacist agenda fits into recent events, including the non-indictments of killer cops and the phenomenon of pro-police rallies. Philly Antifa will give an overview of their work and will show us how to recognize white supremacist symbols and code words. We will also explore the subtle differences between crude white supremacy (KKK, neo-Nazi's, etc) and the more invisible white supremacy that functions on the every day systemic level. Over the past 500 years white supremacy has been a force that has shaped countless lives, yet it is a topic rarely discussed by the general population. How can a topic that is rarely talked about be well understood? The recent uproar over Arizona State's 'The Problem With Whiteness' course shows us that in depth discussions and study of this issue are taking place in the academy. These sort of discussions must be available to everyone, not just college students. One other thing to keep in mind going into this event, and something that should be of unique concern, is the fact that white supremacists hold high positions in the federal government. This past December it was revealed that Congressman and majority whip Steve Scalise gave a speech to the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO), a notorious white supremacist group founded by former KKK leader David Duke. After this scandal broke, David Duke threatened to expose other high ranking government officials with white supremacist ties if investigations against Scalise proceeded. The story has since disappeared from the headlines.
