[Ed. – The mystery in the CNN view is why racism against whites, which already exists, is a form of white supremacy.]

As Americans celebrated a long holiday weekend dedicated to working people of all ethnicities and “races,” CNN propounded a truly breathtaking claim: Racism so pervades every segment of U.S. society that, one day, “white supremacy” will be imposed by black and brown people.

On the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, CNN’s website posted an article by CNN Enterprise writer/producer John Blake titled “White supremacy, with a tan.” In it, Blake argues that a crafty, impersonal force known as “white supremacy” is “elastic” enough to be perpetuated by people who are not white.

Blake addresses what he considers the most lingering of “political myths”: “When White people are no longer a majority, racism will fade.’” Blake admits that, according to the most recent census figures, America will become a majority-minority nation by 2045. But he denies that “the ‘Browning of America’ will lead to the erosion of [w]hite supremacy.”
