How I became a white supremacist… a true story.

When I was young, I was a little different. I didn’t want to grow up and be a President, or a doctor or a lawyer…I was fascinated by dolphins and wanted to grow up and study them. I do not remember wanting to grow up to be a white supremacist, it just kind of happened.

I am in my 60’s and my formative years were from mid 60's to mid 70's, ages 5-16. I grew up in a white neighborhood with my little white friends. I was bussed 8 miles out to a rural county school in the name of de-segregation, which was crazy because my elementary school consisted of a bunch of white kids and 3 black girls. My high school was the same, except it was only 2 black girls because the other one’s family moved.

I spent the first 20+ years of my life in an almost all white environment as far as friends, family, social interactions, etc.

Then I joined the Army and my world was literally thrown upside down. I was suddenly living with, eating with and spending my entire day with people from a variety of different backgrounds: whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc.

My time in the military and as government employee involved countless hours spent in the company of people different from me. We worked shift work, and you really get to know people when you are working a mid shift and there is nothing to do but talk to pass the time.

In the process of growing older, I quickly came to realize that when you strip away all the labels and preconceptions you may have…you are simply left with human beings who all basically want the same things, regardless of ethnic backgrounds.

Then it began to change…

In 2008, I voted for Obama….I wanted desperately to believe in hope and change. I do not recall wanting to become a white supremacist at that point.

In 2012, I voted for Obama again, not because I believed the hype anymore, simply because I could not bring myself to vote for the opponent. Again, I do not recall wanting to be a white supremacist at that point either.

In 2016, the Democratic Party lost me because they went out of their way pushing a terrible candidate who had major flaws and swung my vote to Trump in order to keep that candidate out of office. I do not recall wanting to be a white supremacist at this point either.

Now it is 2019, and because I am a white, older male who voted for Trump, many now view me as a neo-nazi, gun loving, white supremacist. Funny thing is…I still don’t recall ever wanting to be a white supremacist.

Cool story, bro. But is this really a true story, or some lame, sardonic attempt at qualifying your reality in today’s USofA?

I mean, I grew up in a small North Carolina town where all the blacks lived in the brickyard on the other side of the railroad tracks. No busing issues, as I could walk to school — sometimes uphill in the snow both ways.

But I did vote *OBAMA* and do own guns, and even got to know several of the Chinese nationalist and couple Ethiopians in my graduate school. Much like you apparently did. We even ate together. Sometimes, we even had Chen’s mother in-law whip up several dozen Chinese pork dumplings to eat when scrolling through SAS error logs.

I guess I need to look around more...one day I, too, will wake up a white supremacist. True story.

Take care and don’t forget to tip your bus driver.

My background is much the same as yours and I agree. Strip away the crap and we all have things in common:

1. We're born.
2. We live our lives
3. We die

Every single person on this planet shares those things in common. The rest is manmade garbage. So I guess I'm a white supremacist too. I never knew, honest to God, I never knew!

I became a white supremacist when I accidently started defending peoples rights to the 1st Amendment.


Not as nicely done as yours, I kinda' fast-tracked it.

Who exactly called you a white supremacist

I'm also a LIBERAL who hates guns and freedom and all things good and want open borders and give free stuff to people (because internet) ... Whilst I voted for Trump and didn't vote for Obama at all ever...

According to this forum any criticism of Trump makes you a "LIBERAL'... Even ardent trumpster here refrain from criticizing trump at the expense of s&f....

This is psychological warfare.

The best you can do is to retain a little gravity and poise and stand by what's right, not a particular party..

Not sure but is yours a lame, sardonic attempt at qualifying your reality in today’s USofA?

Heck, I became one when I named my son in 2001 Jackson Lee. LOL ! Told a black woman about my new born son and his name and she was shocked, actually horrified ! Lee came from a family member and I just liked the nam Jackson.

Of course you’re not sure, you didn’t post it. Are you still sure the Dayton shooter’s sister and male cohort are/were dead in a car? I’m mean, you’re all about squashing FAKE NEWS but perpetuate it — very incongruous with your principled nature. Tsk, tsk.


I posted a brief history of what my experiences were like, which were congruous with the OP’s and took stock in what may lie ahead of me. These things, apparently, can happen and as the old saying goes: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure. I’m being proactive.

Take care and stay principled.

A wise ass. That's ok. Been accused of that myself. Nice post. How else should I respond to a fellow wise ass with a sarcastic side? No different than I did I would say???

Well brothers I feel right at home amongst most of you. I have commanded men and I have made a concise effort all of my life to be fair and ignore the colour of a mans skin. Now in my 60’s I’m told I’m a racist because I put my country first.

Well hell. I’m in good company.

I'm going to run to the store.

Looks like we need a little dip, for this room full of crackers.
