The author of this blog does not support the popular belief that interracial relationships represent progress, the demise of Racism. White Supremacists/Slave Masters/Segregationists have been sexually engaged with non-white people for centuries. Miscegenation and White Supremacy are compatible; history reveals them to be frequent companions. Gus has invested a significant amount of time and energy studying these tragic arrangements; his conclusion is that sexual intercourse with a White person/Racist Suspect has disastrous ramifications for the non-white person involved - and a substantial number of non-white people who have a good deal of contact with either members of the interracial tandem. Integrated bedrooms/back seats have delivered us a menagerie of fascinating terms(Octoroon), exotic looking people (Jennifer Beals), interesting flicks (Watermelon Man) and a White House full of Obamas. Sadly, Injustice, White Supremacy remains. And the non-white people who get it on with White people, are especially SADD.
SPACE for Non-Racist White people. Sexual intercourse symbolizes an intimate bond between two individuals. People naturally tend to develop a greater awareness and consideration for the person whom shares their bed. For non-white people with a White sex partner, this mandates that they conceptualize Racism in a manner that allows for Good White Folks. That is, White people who definitely don't do anything to participate in the System of White Supremacy. As with snack chips, it's generally difficult to stop at one. The non-white person who has convinced themselves that there is at least one White person who is not complicit with Racism/White Supremacy, tends to find other such White people. As their White sex partner will come to represent their most penetrating and trusted relationship to White people, this Suspected Racist will profoundly shape how this Victim perceives White people at large. Ramifications? These non-white people will be intolerant of any analysis of Racism which assumes or suggests that every White person is a participant in the System of White Supremacy. All White people would mean that their White partner is no exception; this is unacceptable for the maintenance of the non-white person's integrated relationship as well as their sanity.

Racism becomes ABSTRACT.
ABSTRACT: [adjective] A) thought apart from concrete realities, specific objects, [PEOPLE] or actual instances. B) expressing a quality or characteristic apart from any specific object, [PERSON] or instance. C) difficult to understand.
ABSTRACT: [verb] A) to divert or draw away the attention of. B) to consider as a general quality or characteristic apart from specific objects, [PEOPLE] or instances.The System of White Supremacy is designed to befuddle non-white people. Our continued subjugation is the supreme evidence of our counter-racist deficiencies. Engaging in sexual intercourse with a Racist severely hampers the ability of non-white people to remember that Racism is a product of White behavior. "The Problem is White People." Non-white people with a White partner are frequently able to admit that Racism persists. However, they will posit that Racism exists because of laws, statues, codes, customs, chance... anything, anyone but the White people they're seated with and smooching. When White people address terrorism and crime, they make certain that everyone remembers that there are specific individuals to blame. Terrorists create Terrorism. Criminals create Crime. This flawless logic dictates that if Racism/White Supremacy endures, living, breathing Racists/White Supremacists (White People) are responsible. Sexual intercourse with a White person demands that the non-white person reject any discussion of Racism that implicates White folks - especially the White person who sees them naked.

DEFENDING White people. Chancellor L. Williams' Destruction of Black Civilization offers a phenomenal dissection of how White Supremacists have used miscegenation to establish a Buffer Group. This non-white Buffer can be used to protect White Supremacists and their interests. Non-white people with a White sex partner, White baby momma/daddy or White mother and father are directly related to Suspected Racists; that is, they cherish an intense emotional bond with a White person whom has been trained to perceive and relate to non-whites as inferior. Conversely, non-white people are conditioned to cater to and comfort White people. Engaging in sexual intercourse with a White person, conjoins the non-white person's interests with a representative of the global network of White Domination. Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Audre Lorde, Tiger Woods, Halle Berry, Alice Walker, Frantz Fanon, Lorraine Hansberry and James Brown have talked about, worked against and suffered from Racism. But will they indict their White sex partners and/or spouses? It has been this author's observation that such Victims staunchly oppose any non-white person who suggests that all White people are culpable, at minimum, Racist Suspects. The Victim's tireless defense is motivated to preserve White Innocence. Their indefatigable effort must simultaneously vindicate their own intelligence and ability to accurately understand and function on a planet dominated by White Supremacy... while bedding down with a Racist Suspect.

"DIVIDED loyalties". Those two words came directly from a Victim of Racism who has a White spouse. This Victim indicated that having a White spouse restricted her attempts to counter-racism. Divided Loyalties. Meaning the non-white person has an allegiance to a White person whom is most likely a Racist. This erodes the non-white person's ability to accurately assess the System of White Supremacy. This author has observed these non-white people minimize the impact and pervasive nature of Racism/White Supremacy. They will remind other Victims that: Slavery was over 100 years ago. You can't blame all White people. And that Racism is not the only form of abuse in the universe. Gus has witnessed this degenerate to where the non-white person with a White sex partner is accusing other non-white people of being Racist; they contend that suggesting that White people be regarded as Racist Suspects is comparable to the KKK and segregationist. This author can only surmise that the intimate and emotional bond of sexual intercourse has infected the reasoning of these Victims, rendering them acutely sensitive to anything that sounds like an indictment - or less than perfumed commentary - concerning White people in general or their White partner specifically. Conquest often accompanies division.

If the reader took in Lakeview Terrace, this author may sound like the reincarnation of Abel Turner - Gus suspects that was one of the main objectives of the film. SADD has far reaching implications, should not be accepted without serious investigation and could be incorrect. However, I challenge the reader. Scrutinize non-white people who are sexually involved with White people. For starters, access their willingness to admit and dialog about Racism. Evaluate their understanding of the System of White Supremacy and what - if anything - they are doing to earnestly challenge it. Make your own conclusions.
