Why I Stopped Being White and You Should Too by Nicky Reid, CounterPunch

For the American left, nothing is real. Everything is a "social construct," race, gender, sexual preference, whatever. But the "white race," apparently is an exception to the "everything is a social construct" and is "a very unique creature, and a dangerous one":

"The white race is unique in that it is the first defining race of the imperial era and modern day imperialism defines its very existence. The Western Europeans designed the concept of whiteness to justify their expanse and enslavement of the New World and it's dark skinned cousins across the Global South. As the insatiable nature of capitalism demanded endless expansion, it's moneyed mandarins required the creation of a new super-class to rationalize the enslavement of the darker nations. This concept became even more necessary with American independence and the fall of monarchism."

In order to consolidate "white supremacy's ill-gotten gains," white supremacists invented new races—"the colored races of black and Latino."
