White supremacy is a much more useful term for understanding the complicity of people of color in upholding and maintaining racial hierarchies that do not involve force (i.e slavery, apartheid) than the term internalized racism- a term most often used to suggest that black people have absorbed negative feelings and attitudes about blackness. The term white supremacy enables us to recognize not only that black people are socialized to embody the values and attitudes of white supremacy, but we can exercise white supremacist control over other black people.
***A SMALL THEORY***People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them.
