DISINFO: The “systemic racism” paradigm is deadly for America’s white people, which are disenfranchised and oppressed


The paradigm of “systemic racism”, which is dominant in American society, is deadly for whites and for their civilisation. The white race is the truly disenfranchised and oppressed race in the US.

White males are demonised in American society. White males in the US have become the monstrous Other in their own nation.


Disinformation presented with no evidence. The article claims, without any evidence, that the “systemic racism” paradigm – one of the key concepts undepinning tbe racial justice protests in the US - “is deadly for whites and for their civilisation” and that white males in the US are demonised and oppressed. These claims are consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the racial justice protests in the US and about the alleged victimisation of whites in American society.

It is not true that the “systemic racism” concept is an existential threat to white people, as the article suggests. The “systemic racism” concept has been widely debated in the US, and refers to “a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity”. The concept advocates the need for social reform to reduce and eliminate racial injustice in America, not for violence and oppression against white people.

Furthermore, the article’s claims that in the US whites are “disenfranchised and oppressed” and that white males are “demonised” are obviously baseless.

Read a similar case claiming that in the West white male heterosexuals cannot defend themselves against discrimination and are increasingly treated as criminals by courts.
