The myth of 'White Supremacy' explodes in America
I don't know why Lord Krishna did ask Lady Yashoda Maiya – "Radha kyuon gori and main kyun kala?" (Why Radha is fair complexioned and I'm black?)

It might be spurred by a child's curiosity but that reflects a thousands and thousands of years old mindset – a victim of complexes. It shows that 'White Supremacy' was a dominant theme since time immemorial.

Even in recent times a BJP stalwart Tarun Vijay has referred how the white north Indian lived amicably with the black south Indians. "If we were racist, why would the entire South — you know the Tamils, you know Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra — why do we live with them? We have blacks, black people around us. You are denying your own nation, denying your ancestry, your history and you're denying your culture."

The worse display of this prejudice we see everyday in matrimonial advertisements in Indian newspapers. Nobody cares except the girl or the parents of the girl, who is blessed with a strong complexion. Marriage or promotion in a good job is not an issue here. We are not discussing here the fate of black Jews of Ethiopia who have migrated to Israel for a better future. We are discussing this trend in two of the most advanced countries upon Earth – Germany and the United States of America.

Not only the Aryans of India but Germanic people of Aryan race during the 20th century promoted this idea of White Supremacy under the banner of Nazism. They held the belief that white people were members of an Aryan 'Master Race' which was superior to other races, particularly the Jews who were described as the "Semitic race". In Hitler's Germany the Gypsies and Slavs were subjected to "cultural sterility". And it was not without solid logic in its own right. A famous French racial theorist and aristocrat Arthur de Gobineau has blamed the fall of the 'Ancient Regime' to racial degeneracy that was caused by racial intermixing. He argued that the purity of the Nordic or Germanic race was destroyed in this process. The Gobineau's theories, which attracted a strong following in Germany, emphasized the existence of an irreconcilable polarity between Aryan or Germanic people and Jewish culture.

In USA, the White Supremacy was dominant even after the Civil War. And the prime reason for outbreak of the Civil War was the desire to uphold White Supremacy. There was break up in the country and 'Confederate States of America' was formed. The noted American author L Frank Baum wrote in an editorial in 1890: "The Whites, by law of conquest, by justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent, and the best safety of the frontier settlements will be secured by the total annihilation of the few remaining Indians." In some parts of the United States, many people who were considered non-white were disfranchised, barred from government office, and prevented from holding most government jobs well into the second half of the 20th century.

The centuries of suppression and downgrading has successfully played its game to the hilt. The victims have become inured to their destiny. There are shocking statistics available with Human Rights NGOs. And these are completely out of line with what these civilized beacons want us to believe. Almost 60 per cent of non-African-Americans believe blacks are less intelligent than whites! Almost a third of blacks feel they're less intelligent than whites! Two-thirds of people believe that black people are lazier than white people? Three-quarters of Americans believe that blacks are more interested in welfare than work?

How long the society would accept this heinous attitude towards the fellow human beings? How long the powerful majority would dictate its terms? Even an ant bites when an elephant puts it heavy foot on it. And that's exactly what happened in USA this week. A crowd in Durham, North Carolina, used a rope to topple a statue of a Confederate soldier at an anti-racism rally. The bronze statue had stood outside an old courthouse building, that now houses local government offices, since 1924. Seconds after the monument fell, protesters began kicking the crumpled monument as dozens cheered and chanted. The protests follow a nationalist rally in Charlottesville in which one person was killed and 19 others injured.
