Traditionally in America, everything associated with white people is considered normal, a baseline for how everything is evaluated. All “others” are measured against their benefit to the “white norm.” Basically, white supremacy is the philosophical umbrella for white racism. This is not to be confused with prejudice which is a preference, like blue over gray. The American ideal encourages individual preferences and supports civil individual expression. The enforcement of a white supremacist culture cloaks the truth and distorts reality for everyone.
