The New Abolitionist
In the News
The white race is a historically constructed
social formation. It consists of all those who partake of the
privileges of the white skin in this society. Its most wretched
members share a status higher, in certain respects, than that
of the most exalted persons excluded from it, in return for which
they give their support to a system that degrades them.
The key to solving the social problems
of our age is to abolish the white race -- in other words, to
abolish the privileges of the white skin. Until that task is
accomplished, even partial reform will prove elusive, because
white influence permeates every issue, domestic and foreign,
in U.S. society.
The way to abolish the white race is to
challenge, disrupt and eventually overturn the institutions and
behavior patterns that reproduce the privileges of whiteness,
including the schools, job and housing markets, and the criminal
justice system. The abolitionists do not limit themselves to
socially acceptable means of protest, but reject in advance no
means of attaining their goal.
