I like what you are saying Charlie, though I’m not a fan of the term “white supremacist” in this context as the people you’re talking about are not racially motivated but are trying to create an elite “caste,” based on wealth rather than bloodlines.

This wealthy elite can be describes as paternalistic liberals because like the Patrician caste of the Roman Empire, the nobility of medieval Europe and the warrior kings of the middle east they regard the masses as stupid and ineducable, in need of the protection provided by their superiors.

It is almost as if they are trying to revive the concept of ‘noblesse oblige’ the idea that the wealthy and privileged have a duty of care to the lower orders of society. A social system based on such an idea might possibly work, were it not for human nature.

But being black or a little bit brown like myself does not shut one out of this caste, the qualities that cause the doors to be slammed against us are a moral compass and a conscience.
