    White nationalism is a political issue that needs to be discussed.

    Detailing the history of white nationalism in America is trickier than it first appears. This is because, despite the egalitarian rhetoric of the Declaration of Independence, the United States operated as a de facto white-supremacist nation for most of its history. This has been a subject of controversy for decades. No one disputes that slavery poses a problem for the narrative that America is, and always was, a beacon for freedom and equality. But debates continue as to what the most important Founding Fathers “really” thought about race and the future of equality.

    Many historians, especially contemporary conservative historians, are inclined to view the marquee names of the American Revolution as opponents of slavery who made an immoral choice—allowing slavery to continue—for the sake of keeping the union together. There is no doubt that Thomas Jefferson, among others, was convinced that slavery could not and should not persist in the United States, at least in the long term. Yet even if we view Jefferson’s statements on this subject as sincere, it is equally clear that Jefferson was no racial egalitarian—see his “Notes on the State of Virginia,” where he states his belief that blacks “are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind.” The case against Jefferson as an egalitarian is even weaker when we note that Jefferson hoped that, after slavery was eventually abolished, freed blacks would be returned to Africa.

    Moving forward through history, it is easy to find evidence that Americans continued to view the United States as a “white country,” and policies designed to maintain white demographic dominance were often uncontroversial: the Chinese Exclusionary Act of 1882, the Immigration Act of 1924 (which ushered in a four-decade period of low immigration), and President Eisenhower’s Operation Wetback (which forcibly deported undocumented immigrants), to name just a few. The Progressive movement that thrived in the early 20th century had a transparent racial and eugenicist element to it. Famous progressive eugenicists such as Madison Grant and Lothrop Stoddard thought the idea of racial equality was absurd. The United States began to change course on issues of race following World War II, eventually abolishing racial segregation, allowing large-scale immigration from non-European countries, and later electing an African American president. But white supremacy was formally institutionalized throughout most of American history.

    The only place where a country protecting its racial composition is synonymous with "white supremacy" is inside the warped mind of 300 million multiracialist zombies who currently roam the streets of America.

    Africans and others have allowed whites to enter their countries and not place restrictions on them due to race. Had they done so, whites would still be in europe.

    Are you sure you are using the right phrases/terms?
    Are we talking about about White Supremacy or White Nationalism?
    As soon as Brown and Black folks can conduct themselves like legitimate human beings I think you’ll see whatever it is you are talking about start to go away. Until then, those intelligent, unprogrammed, courageous, legitimate folks will continue to call you out on your bullshit behavior.

    The hell they do!!

    Go to Lagos, try and force the black people of Nigeria to adopt America's multiracialist mental disease, allowing millions of non-blacks to flood the country destroying its african racial composition and see what happens to you.
