Theodore W. Allen on “white supremacism” rather than "racism"

[I use] “white supremacism,” rather than “racism” or “racialism,” and any other variation that in any way serves to shunt the discussion off into a “psycho-cultural” siding. “White supremacism” first of all centers attention on the real peculiar institution, “the white race,” and its class history and function. Secondly, the term, “white supremacism,” covers both the theory and practice of white supremacism.
