How the Business of Whiteness Is the Ultimate Antitrust Violation

from the beginning with no regulation

The other day, I listened to my Alexa device echo back the attorney general confirmation hearing for William Barr. I heard a senator lob preschool questions at William Barr about tech companies and antitrust regulations.

Based on the senator’s leading questions, the senator believes antitrust laws are necessary to prevent companies from becoming too powerful and eliminating competition. Apparently, that’s bad for business owners, and it’s bad for the public.

As I heard the questions and answers, my face balled up and I thought, “Isn’t that what white supremacy does in America?”

The answer is yes and here are a few ways it happens:

Deals with white suppliers

Anticompetitive deals between companies and suppliers, that reduce or end competition, can increase monopolies.

In the past, America’s immigration laws created white and wanton deals with countries to maintain white majorities in America.

Those racist compacts allowed millions of white Europeans to come to a racist America while excluding other nations.

As America’s white majority declines, it’s no surprise the current battle with immigration is about the market share of whiteness in America with certain countries as the preferred suppliers.

The mergers of whiteness

Mergers by large corporations can create a monopoly too.

In the past, as whiteness merged with European immigrants, the united state of whiteness benefited by eliminating competition from Black people and people of color.

White racism enacted against Black people made it easier for new European immigrants to enter the workforce and the middle and upper classes of society.

White America exists — in its fixed and rigged position — because white America instituted, reinforced, expanded, and reiterated white supremacy through slavery, discriminatory laws, the Homestead Act, the G.I. Bill, the New Deal, and a bad host of other inhospitable policies and practices.
