Why is there so little discussion here about Racism/White Supremacy in a time when Racists/White Supremacists are more publicly active than ever?

There have been a lot of people visiting the site lately but I see no one has even tried to answer your question so I'll give it a shot. "Give it a shot" is black for I'll try to answer it. A lotta language used by non-white people in "communication" with other non-white people has that antagonistic element. Like "I'll holla at you later". Why raise your voice? Or "hit me back". See..gotta have that element of conflict for non-white people.

Anyway, your question sir. I have heard non-white people say the reaction, or lack thereof, is out of fear. Some say it is because non-white people don't know what to say or how to say it. Some even say that the white people who practice racism (white supremacy) have made many non-white people so comfortable under the system of racism (white supremacy), without producing justice, that if a non-white person has to choose between their comfort level, at any given time, or the production of justice...many non-white people choose comfort.

I suspect that to be a major contributing factor Mr. Williams.
