Lupe Fiasco aired out his thoughts about the existence of white supremacy. Last night (June 20), the Tetsuo & Youth rapper took to to Instagram to express his feelings about the ideology behind the tainted culture of white supremacy. According to Fiasco, white supremacy is really “white regularity” because no color triumphs over another.

“First of all you are not really that supreme,” Fiasco said. “There is nothing about you biologically or physically that denotes an innate mode of supremacy. For that matter there is also nothing about you psychologically, philosophically, cognitively, academically, socially, architecturally, culturally or even financially that signifies a higher position above any other group. And to be diplomatic there is nothing about you that denotes innate inferiority as well. So what you really are is something in the middle. You are regular. White Regularity is congruent to all other forms of regularity i.e. Black, Brown, Etc etc.”

Fiasco included photos of Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine people inside a historically black church last Wednesday, with the familiar “Supreme” logo, but changes it to “Regular” towards the end of his diatribe. In the end, he does well to label all races and colors as equal. He also claims that the only reason white supremacy exists today is because of all the other races in existence.

“White Supremacy has to validate it’s own identity based solely on its relationship to other races! I mean now that’s what I would call joined at the hip. Without us there is no white supremacy because there would be nothing to be supreme over! That sounds so stupid but sometimes the truth is stupid.”
