The Superior Race and White Supremacy

by David Yeagley · August 24, 2010 · 23 Comments ·

What is the superior race? Is there a superior race? Perhaps both the words “superior” and “race” need clarification.

It is apparently an archetype in the human mind that there should be hierarchy. No matter what the subject, or object, there is contest. Whenever presented with multiplicity, if only two items, the inevitable tendency of consciousness is to distinguish one as better than the other. One is more valuable than the other. Similarity invites discretion. Association is a challenge. This is the phenomenology of consciousness at the most basic level. Ferdinand de Saussure, the Swiss linguist, obvserved this chronic craving of discretion even in the process of recognizing the letters of the alphabit. A thing (or letter) is what it is very much by virtue of what it is not. For example, a “j” is an “i” without the tail, or vice versa.

So what is the superior race? What is the sector of humanity which is superior to all others? The question is natural. And, why is it superior? Is there a general trend, or must we break it down into parts, and compare relative superiority in segmented aspects of human prowess?


Ptah.

Interestingly, the ancient gods addressed only those who worshipped them. The ancient gods were ethno-centric. Marduk created the Babylonians, not mankind. Ptah created the Egyptians (at least those at Memphis), not humanity. There may be some implied superiority derived from god-ism in a society. Certainly there is competition with other groups. Gods were mascots, in effect.

Curiously, the ancient Hebrew scriptures present a God who not only claims to have created all the different races and ethnic groups in the world, but also claims to be responsible for the management of them all. He claims to have created the one group which He deigned preeminent–the Jews. Of course, unique and preeminent do not necessarily mean superior. Different does not mean better, necessarily. He promised to make the Jews different, for sure.

But, does that mean the Jews are superior?

Curiously again, this is not exactly the depiction in scripture. The Jews were certainly never superior in numbers. They do not appear to have been superior in character, either. (Their name has “stunk” since the sons of Jacob committed genocide on the clan of Hamor (Gen. 43:30.) They were created, from scratch, so to speak. Therefore they cannot be regarded as worthy of selection out of competing groups. They were created, from nothing, in the very presence of pre-existing groups. They were created, more than ‘chosen,’ for the task of carrying the Ark of the Most High in this world. Their history is attributed to the mercy of their God, and not to their numbers, character, or talents. That’s the picture in the Bible, anyway.

But, it is hard to separate a people’s history from their talents. Beauty of appearance–which is the first aspect we encounter, size, numbers, strength, technology, etc., are all elements which, in one way or another, affect a people’s experience and history in this world. The Jews have been around as a distinct culture longer than any other groups. This must be attributed to something. But what?
How could such a question be answered except as we attribute their historical continuity either to their phenomenological traits or to the supernatural, that is, their God? It has either to do with their nature, or their God. Perhaps it is a combination of both.

If so, that would mean it is their God, exclusively, who has made them what they are. All ethnicities have moral ambiguity, extremes of success and failure, and suffering. We all qualify on that basis. If God is the difference, then we have to look on with curiosity if not frustration as to why the Jews would be selected for any special assignment above any of the rest of us. Why them? They’re certainly not better than anyone else. They might be worse. Scripture is intensely ambiguous about this.

The Judeo-Christian religion, for some reason, spread west. It was more successful in the westward outreach than the eastern. To the west lay the white race–the Caucasian peoples. These were the relatives of the Semites (descendents of Shem), according to Genesis 10:21-31.


Marduk and his pet dragon.

As a race, the Caucasians have dabbled with Hebrew socio-psychological values and standards longer than any other sector of the human race–three thousand years or more, if we count Hebrew history as the line of descent. The religious connection might not be demonstrable in the laboratory, but, it does so happen that the white race wields the superior power in technology, science, the arts, government, etc. The white race, as well as particular Semitic ancestor–the Jews, has also experience life as a relative minority. The white races has always been the smaller of the three races, Mogoloid, Negroid, and Caucasoid. These are the phenomenological facts of history.

So, what is supremacy about? If not moral character, then social values. If not physical numbers, then technology. This is what the naked eye sees in the world; but both technology and social order reflect the values of the gods, one way or another. The Most High, the Hebrew Creator, claims to have power over spiritual and the physical. He claims to have created the nations, and to be the present manager of them all. The role of the Jews was one of communication, ambassadorship, or divine messaging. I’m not sure it took a superior people to do that. Humanity is humanity. There may not be a superior people, but there are hierarchies of responsibility. That one was designed to demonstrate superior values before all others is a superior rôle, indeed, and it may have required extraordinary strength to sustain; but, any distinction in this regard was developed, over a long period of time. And that time is filled with exemples of colossal failure. In the end, if there is any superiority in the Jews, or in the white race, it has to do with the religious values held, and not the natural character of the people.

It would appear that national, ethnic, or racial status does have directly to do with the values of those entities. This modern notion of natural “equality” is amiss and awry. All people may be equally loved by the Creator, but, not all people are equally interested in Him or His ways. Therein lies the differentiation. Those who seek the true God most sincerely are the superior people–and superior for that reason alone. Superiority comes from God, not from man’s behavior.

If the Jews invented God, they sure gave them selves a strange sock in the eye in the process. The scriptures are hardly complimentary toward Jewish people. Yet, they are honored above all. It is the archetype of duality and hierarchy, both.

    Whoa, this is too complicated to work with. Needs to be spread over three articles for those of us with such small minds. Best I can say is that while it is true that the Bible states that God began humanity, they split at the tower of Babel, God came back to the Jew with Abram. Since that time, the people of G-d were the ones that followed him.
    Society is dependent on culture and who is to say that one culture is better than another. The Greeks and Romans were more regimented than Celts or Indians but were they better? I don’t know.

    “And Peter opened his mouth and said, “Most certainly and throughly I now percieve and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons.” Acts 10:34
    The Jewish people have no moral or spiritual superiority over the rest of us. God chose them to bring the Messiah into the world.
    “…for, after all, salvation comes from among the Jews.” John 4:22
    This explains why the Jewish people have come under such horrible persecution over the centuries. Whomever God loves, Satan hates and wants to destroy. However, when Jesus went to the cross, Satan was defeated.
    “He will bruise and tread your head underfoot and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.”
    Genesis 3:15

    I was weaned on Bible stories. I didn’t know what a Jew was, in contemporary reality, but, I knew who Abraham was, and who Moses was. I can remember as a small child, at an Adventist church, learning that elder Andercek was a Jew. (Found out later he was one of those who was put in a Catholic school, but some time later found out about the Adventist faith.) I remember when I realized he was related to Moses! It was breath-taking to me, as a little kid. Moses! Think of it. There is his kin.

    So, I idolized the Jews, because of the Bible stories. I knew that they were special, specially admired and hated. But, most of all, I felt close to them, because of the Bible. I believed the Bible.

    This is a strange kind of prejudice, huh?

  • 5 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 9:13 pm   

    There’s a lot of ground to cover in this!

    I don’t know the specif verse in the Bible, but God told the Israelites explicitly that they were not chosen because they were superior.

    But CULTURE is another thing! One race necessarily influences the culture of another when in daily contact.

    Here’s an example right before our eyes. The black style of singing is clearly imitated here by Britney Spears. In my opinion, she has reduced herself to an inferior popular culture. I HATE this kind of singing! When I first heard this, I thought this was a black woman singing. I’d rather live without this sound!

    Or even this.

    This also!

    What’s the difference? Europe produced these styles! Why are they better? Because Europe was in touch with the Creator! Immersed in biblical culture!

  • 7 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 9:45 pm   

    Here is one Bible passage I had in mind:

    For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.

    “7 The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. 8 But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. 9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commands.”
    – Deuteronomy 7: 7 – 9

  • 8 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 9:49 pm   

    Also, how can we get round the obvious fact that the Children of Israel were told to hate the culture of the nations they were to eliminate?

    From Deuteronomy, chapter 7, we read:

    “17You may say to yourselves, “These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?” 18But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. 19You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the miraculous signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the Lord your God brought you out. The Lord your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear. 20Moreover, the Lord your God will send the hornet among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished. 21Do not be terrified by them, for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God. 22The Lord your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you. 23But the Lord your God will deliver them over to you, throwing them into great confusion until they are destroyed. 24He will give their kings into your hand, and you will wipe out their names from under heaven. No one will be able to stand up against you; you will destroy them. 25The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to the Lord your God. 26Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Utterly abhor and detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.”

    “If the Jews invented God, they sure gave them selves a strange sock in the eye in the process.”
    ————————————————
    Interestingly enough, the ancient Chinese were also monotheists, long before Buddhism was introduced into China. The Chinese culture lost this distinction when terrible disasters came upon them and they could no longer believe in God. They then, taking Confucius as an example, became rather agnostic, though Taoism still mentions God in one verse of Taoist scripture.

    The difference at that point (in ancient history) between the Chinese and the Hebrews?

    Hebrews: God created the Universe.
    Taoists: The Universe created God!

  • 10 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 10:21 pm   

    Why did the European race become the “greatest”?

    Matthew 23:12 tell us.

    “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

    The White Man accepted that he was a needy sinner, lost, apart from God, and dependent on God’s grace.

    Whites are not essentially superior in substance to other races. But they humbled themselves before God, when Christ was offered to them, and God exalted them.

  • 11 David Yeagley // Aug 24, 2010 at 10:24 pm   

    My understanding is that the very ancient Chinese were the descendents of Japeth, and in fact knew the whole Genesis story. ShangTi, “Heavenly Emperor,” they worshiped. It’s all in the pictographs on the tortis shells.

    A part of humanity has always know the whole story. Noah’s father, Lamech, must have known Adam. Adam was alive for the first 56 years of Lamech’s life.

    I think all religion, culture, etc., is generally a variation (perversion in most cases) of Edenic truth. “Diversity” is a scattered version of Deluvian afterbirth, so to speak.

  • 13 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 10:34 pm   

    That’s fascinating. I’ll want to look into that!

    Here are the words of Derek Lin on this subject of Tao and God:

    “Lao Tzu is saying that the image of the Tao precedes even such a being (i.e., God), because any principles that govern the divine must, by definition, be part of the Tao. Therefore, the Tao has to be already present before anything like a supreme deity can manifest existence.”

    Confucius, I have read, was apparently an agnostic.

  • 14 Thrasymachus // Aug 24, 2010 at 10:46 pm   

    I will certainly check out those three books you mention. Thanks!

    I first became interested in martial art when I watched the original “Karate Kid” movie. I felt strongly that I needed self-defense skills.

    From there, I discovered Chinese kung fu — namely, the television series starring David Carradine. This offered genuine Taoist and
    Buddhist thought.

    Then I read Bruce Lee’s writings and, from there, discovered Huston Smith, the scholar of religion that Bruce Lee talked about.

    Intro to Daoism (Prof. Huston Smith).

    I found Taoism fascinating on account of its many paradoxes. It is not easy to understand, and the latest book I’m reading on this is really a challenge. It is titled, “Daoism Explained,” and authored by Hans-Georg Moeller. A real brain-teaser!

    On the surface, Taoism seems simple. It could be that these authors are making it unnecessarily complicated? Don’t know.

    Think of the Old Testament as the family history of Abram and Sarah.

    It follows their history from family to tribe to nation making it a truly unique study.

  • 16 Thrasymachus // Aug 25, 2010 at 5:09 am   

    “It follows their history from family to tribe to nation making it a truly unique study.”
    ——————————————
    Exactly. A nation is NOT a mere assemblage of persons. A nation is an extended family — people of a common ancestry and shared history.

  • 17 Pamela K. // Aug 25, 2010 at 7:00 am   

    The Bible is the history of the Jewish people. The first eleven chapters fill in the background and set the stage for all that follows. From this point, the Bible is essentially the history of Abraham and the nation which descended from him to Issac, then to Jacob, or Israel.
    There is a distinction to be made between the words, Israel and Israelite, and the words, Jew and Jewish. Linguistically, the word, Jew, comes from the word, Judah, the name of one of the tribes of Israel. After being released from their captivity in Babylon, all the Israelites which returned to the land of Israel were called Jews, regardless of their tribal background. This carries over into the New Testament. Paul, for example, was from the tribe of Benjamin, yet he called himself a Jew. (Acts 21:39).
    In modern times, these four words are not fully interchangeable. Israel and Israelite focus on national origin or background. Jew and Jewish focus more on religion, culture, and later history.
    Since the birth of modern Israel in 1948, the word, Israeli has been added, referring to any citizen of the state whether of Jewish, Arab, or Druse descent.
    The most unique feature of the Bible is that part of it was written after events happened, as normal history is recorded, while the remainder was written before the advance of events, or as prophecy.
    God was clearly looking forward to the time when He would regather Israel in the land He appointed for them. God knew that at that time, his people would gain a greater understanding of the words spoken through the Prophet Jeremiah:
    God said, “Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you. The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their forefathers to possess.”
    Jeremiah 30: 2-3

    I’ll tell you what I believe, even though I’m a Jew. I believe that while the Jews are descendants of the tribe of Judah, the white European people are quite possibly descendants of the ten northern tribes of Israel who were “lost”. There are even Israeli Orthodox Jews who believe this, such as Yair Davidiy..see his website at http://www.britam.org

    I believe the white European people were blessed by God because they did what the entire Israelite nation was told to do: spread the belief in One God to the entire world. Whereas the Jews were too small a tribe to do this, the white Europeans, via their Christian missionaries, spread the knowledge of the Jewish God and His Torah to the most far-off, remote tribes everywhere. They fulfilled the mission since they are part of the nation of Israel!

    As for the race issue:I believe that each race has its strong points and its weak points. Blacks are better at some things than whites (more muscle mass, more confidence…largely all due to higher testosterone than Whites or Asians), and Whites are better at other things than non-Whites (inventions, discoveries, creations, etc)

    I have noticed that when blacks imitate whites, they improve themselves, grammatically, socially, linguistically, etc. However when whites imitate blacks (esp. black hip hop culture), they lower themselves and become ignorant.

    Thank you, incredibly thought provoking! I’ve gained a great deal of insight and understanding from what you’ve written…. Just a few thoughts to add. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I believe true religion was instituted by God to prepare and perfect Adam and Eve and thier children (us). It was (and is) corrupted by Satan, because he wants us to be miserable, like unto himself. God eventually gave a lesser law to Moses because the people had become so corrupted living for generations among the idol-worshipping Egyptians. This eventually became known as Judaiism. It was instituted to prepare the people for the coming of the Messiah. Christanity is the religion brought about by the fulfillment of the prophecies of the coming of Christ. Essentialy, Jews are just Christians who don’t believe the Messiah has come yet, and Christians are Jews who do. These two religions are interconnected and inseperable, growing from the same root.The law of Moses was fulfilled, and the greater law was given by Christ, There was to be no more eye-for-an-eye, now it was to Llove God with all thy heart, might, mind and strength, and to love others as thyself. It is again, to help us become like him, and prepare us for his final coming and great judgement. True religion benefits and blesses mankind and those civilizations who espouse it. It entitles us to Gods blessings(Just as an aside, I believe you, as an American Indian, are a direct descendent of Abraham, through Manassah, You have the same birthright (if you are faithful) as all the children of Abraham (if they are faithful). you, by blood, are a Jew. I also believe that through rightuosness and faith in Christ, all people on earth can inherit that same birthright, which is to return unto God and inherit all that he has). That said, here are a few words of holy scripture that describe clearly, Gods relationship with his children. 1 Nephi 7:32-40;” And after they had crossed the river jordan he did make them mighty unto the driving out of the children of the land, yea, unto the scattering them to destruction. and do ye suppose that the children of this land, who were in the land of promise, who were driven out by our fathers, do ye suppose that they were rightous? Behold, I say unto you, Nay. Do ye suppose that our fathers would have been more choice than they if they had been rightous? Behold, I say unto you, Nay. Behold, the Lord esteemeth all flesh in one, He that is rightous is favored of God. But behold,this people had rejected every word of God, and they were ripe in iniquity: and the fullness of the wrath of God was upon them; and the Lord did curse the land against them and bless it unto our fathers; yea, he did bless it it unto our fathers unto thier obtaining power over it. Behold, the Lord hath created the earth that it should be inhabited; and he hath created his children that they should pocess it. And he raiseth up a rightous nation, and destroyeth the nations of the wicked. And he leadeth away the rightous into precious lands, and the wicked he destroyeth, and curseth the land unto them for thier sakes. He ruleth high in the heavens, for it is his throne, and this earth is his footstool. And he loveth those who will have him to be thier God. Behold, he loved our fathers, and he covented with them, yea, even Abraham, Isaac, and he remembered the covenants which he had made”. There is no superior race, creed or color, there are only those who are faithful to him and those who are not. Individuals, families and communities must choose whom they will serve, and nations will be blessed or cursed based on those choices.
