If one makes the claim that a group of people is "superior," then it is required that you state the basis upon which you make that claim. It has recently been claimed that the United States was founded on the basis of "white supremacy," and hence "we" are evil ab initio. So if it is postulated that the Founders were "white supremacists" one might well inquire what THEIR criteria were. Were they JUSTIFIED in believing that "white" Europeans were superior to any other "race" in the discussion at that time. Keep in mind of course, that saying one "race" is superior to another race is NOT the same as saying that every member of that race is individually superior to every member of the other races under consideration. We are talking about "whites: in general, and their culture, technology, society, and so on. Obviously, there are examples of primitive populations who break the mold, and are the equal of any member of a "superior" population. And their are individuals in the superior population who are low-intelligence, and so on. Consider the native Americans. While they could be commended for learning to survive under harsh conditions, they were a profoundly primitive population. They had no written language, almost no animal husbandry or agricultural knowledge, stone-age technology, no metallurgy, and had not even discovered or invented the WHEEL. Their naturalist religions were extremely primitive and human sacrifice was ubiquitous, particularly among the Aztecs. Their knowledge of the earth and navigation were almost non-existent, and their weapons technology had not advanced since the stone age. The only animals they domesticated were horses that had brought here by the Spaniards. Without any doubt whatsoever, European whites were superior to the native populations. Black Africans? Same thing. At the time of the Declaration, they were basically primitive hunter-gatherers with no literature, science, technology, agriculture, no metallurgy, and primitive stone-age weapons. And so forth. Is it any wonder that the Founders believed that the Europeans who had come and settled in the New World were "superior" to the other populations worth considering? It was a fact. So is "white supremacy" the product of "racism" if it is warranted by known facts? I recognize that under current Leftist moral theology, no culture is superior or inferior to any other culture, but this is obviously bullshit, so bear with me.
