White supremacy includes any system of structural or societal racism which privileges white people over others, regardless of the presence or absence of racial hatred. The legal system has a long history of white supremacy including judicial decisions concerning blacks categorized as property during slavery, enforcement of Jim Crow laws and present day practices concerning traffic stops, stop and frisk, drug sentencing, death penalty and various other unfair policies.
Black People Do Not Understand White Supremacy
In many parts of the United States, people who were considered non-white were disenfranchised, barred from government office, and prevented from holding most government jobs well into the second half of the 20th century. Many U.S. states banned interracial marriage through anti-miscegenation laws until 1967, when these laws were declared unconstitutional. Additionally, white leaders often viewed Native Americans as obstacles to economic and political progress with respect to the natives' claims to land and rights. Legal scholar Frances Lee Ansley explains this definition as follows:
By "white supremacy" I do not mean to allude only to the self-conscious racism of white supremacist hate groups. I refer instead to a political, economic and cultural system in which whites overwhelmingly control power and material resources, conscious and unconscious ideas of white superiority and entitlement are widespread, and relations of white dominance and non-white subordination are daily reenacted across a broad array of institutions and social settings.

Just because they don't ride horses and wear sheets doesn't mean they haven't traded in their sheets for business suits, police uniforms or judicial robes. There are many racists still out there and the problem isn't going away. White supremist groups are recruiting kids on computers, they are in our schools recruiting, they are committing crimes against non-whites and blaming the non-whites for doing it themselves, they are our doctors not giving adequate care, our lawyers putting more non-whites in jail for petty crimes, our children"s teachers not letting them live up to their full potential and educating them. They are everywhere. As long as they keep having children and teaching hate they will always exist.
But on the up side…as long as we still having people teaching their children equality, empathy, and love we can still have a bit of civility in this country. See the article,'White supremacist teacher' running New York school with majority black and Latino students
In the US, two organizations that monitor intolerance and hate groups are the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)] and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The ADL and the SPLC maintain a list of what they deem to be hate groups, supremacist groups and anti-Semitic, anti-government or extremist groups that have committed hate crimes. However, at least for the SPLC, inclusion of a group in the list "does not imply a group advocates or engages in violence or other criminal activity." According to the SPLC, from 2000 to 2008, hate group activity saw a 50 percent increase in the US, with a total of 939 active groups.
