The Tactical Heart of White Supremacy

Macchiavellianism and White Liberal ‘Ignorance’ as Deception

‘Channel-shifting’ is described in DiAngelo’s book, where she states that white people often talk about how ‘I was picked on because I…grew up poor’ as a response to discussions about race. (77)

DiAngelo states that white people have an ‘internalized superiority and sense of a right to rule’ which reflects a deep internal state of presumptive dominance regardless of actual achievement. (100)

Greene’s Law #31, ‘Control the options: get others to play with the cards you deal,’ illustrates the fundamentally deceptive white belief that they are allowed to force others to play by their rules; that is, they are automatically deemed ‘leaders’ in any context.
