1. That is bob marley using his speech. Haile selassie I never said "me say war".

I know it seems like a small thing. But it irks me when people quote the marley song war and just attribute it to selassie. Marley took many of selassie's words verbatim but marley also inserted his own speaking style when he performed the song.

2. It is essential to remember that

And to contextualize it in the understanding that that is and always has been the default practice in the US. Even if someone rejects the philosophy, to be a white US citizen is to be superior to our fellow non-white citizens.
The white nationalists aren't opposing philosophy so much as practice.

3. If you are familiar with Jonathon Swift, you understand the futlity of that position...

we all want it to be true, but those who wish to divide and conquer will find a reason.

Hint: I think I'm a little ender.
