Ostracism: Pronunciation Key

A White person used this term to describe what White people might DO to her if she helped replace White supremacy with Justice.

As I studied each letter of the word I noticed it contained the word racism.

I do not know what if any relevance my observation has.

I will submit the Webster's New World Dictionary definition for further review and analysis.



Ostracism:

1. In ancient Greece, the temporary banishment of a citizen by popular vote.

2. A rejection or exclusion by general consent, as from a group or from acceptance by society

Im thinking about returning this word back to the White person who gave it to me.



The White person who gave it to me was using it to describe What would happen to her if she countered racism White supremacy.

Now look at the definition:

2. A rejection or exclusion by general consent, as from a group or from acceptance by society

How does one White person stop another White person from being a White person?

See what I mean?


The White supremacists are the only group that "counts".

They are guarding all the gates; they are holding all the keys which means sooner or later

somebody is going to have to fight them.


I think this White person told me she fears being rejected by the White supremacists.

This means she may already be one.




Gimme a little time to work on this some more .

Be right back

(grabs ax, walks off...)

(((grabbing Josh by the neck)))

Hold on there...I suspect this is a sophisticated way of saying to non-white people that the fear of not practicing white supremacy (racism) is that there will be no SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism). This means the SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism) is a value within itself.

Any white person can just go around "other" white people, where there are non-white people present as well, and continue to practice white supremacy (racism). I suspect the white person you were talking to is a white supremacist (racist) and may have even been practicing white supremacy (racism) against you by telling you they feared being "ostracized".

I suspect this person is not fearful of what "other" white people will do to them, they are fearful that they may no longer be able to function as a white person. In order to function as a white person there has to be a SYSTEM of white supremacy (racism).

I think the definition of the word, in counter-racist terms, has no meaning at all, or the meaning is:

(1) The fear by white people that white supremacy (racism) no longer exists.

(2) The inability of any person to function as a white person.

Let me know what you think.

Ostracism or Ostracize the beginng of the word remind me of the African Bird the Ostrich.
Ostriches stretch out their neck and lay their head on the ground to keep from being seen.
That is what a racist white supremacist does to keep niggers confused about the system.
They will refine the system (stretch out their neck= do anything to keep the system just to benefit them).
Lay their head on the ground to keep from being seen (Confusing non-whites with language, sex, money, adopting nigger childeren, and white rappers etc etc) I suspect they lay their head on ground so the truth about r/ws won't be revealed. If ya head is on the ground and u dont want to be seen you might got something to hide?

Ost - racism

Racism practised by Osts in order to advance the group interests of the Osts in relation to other groups of non- Osts.

And victims of Ostracism/OstSupremacy are trying to replace it with what they like to call "justice".

..........but the Osts are still winning.

Ok,

Observer,

1. What is an "Ost"?

2. What are the interest of the "Osts"?



(See folks even when the Observer goes into confusion mode I can still practice excercising the logic. Remember the last fight scene in the Matrix between agent Smith and Neo? Neo turned sideways and used just one arm while Smith tried everything in the book... he couldn't land anything.

Thats what Im doing now. I was glad to see the Observer answered this post, I actually thought my response would take great thought.

It didn't.

Nothin but code

Come on Observer...you can do better than that.

You watch too much science fiction Josh. Why don't you put down your lightsaber and go outside.

Don't need a saber when you have the language.
