Andrews: West Built on Racism

It’s not about diversity or inclusion anymore. It’s facing the truth about white supremacy. The west was built on racism. It’s time we faced that – Kehinde Andrews, Prof. of Sociology  | In my opinion. Originally published in the Guardian UK.

[Editor] I hope this signals the end of western hegemony and its economic form, capitalism. Speaking as a white westerner, I’m glad to see it go; it’s killing all of us. The best that the west had to offer was science, and that will continue. Its weakest legacy was democracy, but current representative republics are an abject failure, and with neo-fascism, they are becoming dangerous. All civilizations fall eventually, and hopefully this might be the last gasp of the west.
