Like other commenters I thought you were doing OK until I hit the phrase “overt white nationalism.”
First, and being British I might have different priorities, the demonisation of ‘nationalism’ is a symptom of ‘far left’ extremism. Yeah we know Hitler was a nationalist but as I pointed out to an ‘angry liberal’ contributor last week after reading his irrational rant against ‘nationalism,’ as far as the phrase “nationalism is a cancer,” Mohandas K Gandhi was a nationalist (Mahatma was not his name, it’s an honourific,) and an advocate of peaceful resistance, another nationalist currently active is the Dalai Lama, who has spent his life peacefully campaigning for Tibet’s independence from the oppressive tyranny of communist China.
Nationalism is neither good or bad, the conflation of Hitler’s National Socialism with Gandhi’s campaign for Indian independence from British colonial status, or the Dalai Lama’s reasoned pleas for Tibet’s independence is bad.
And why specifically pick out ‘white nationalism,’ I’m not aware of any statement by Trump proclaiming he believes in white supremacy, in fact the only people I have seen on Medium proclaiming the supremacy of their race have been black, African Americans, people of colour or whatever.
It is a fact that Indians (the ones from India like some of my ancestors, not native Americans,) Chinese and Japanese think of their races as superior to others, they tend to keep quiet about it in diverse company. As for Africans, well they don’t think of themselves as ‘black’ or even African (neither of these are races,) the think of themselves as Bantu, Yoruba, Hausa, Somali, Tswana, Khoisan, Xosha, Ashanti, Tutsi or any of the many other African ethnic groups, some numbering tens of millions, some only a few thousand.
So it’s wise to be careful when throwing around phrases like “white supremacist.” It only leads to more division and polarisation of society.
