White supremacy facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

White supremacy is the belief that white people are better than other races. The words "white supremacy" are sometimes used to describe a political idea that shows the social and political dominance of whites.

White supremacy is a form of racism. White supremacists also want racial separation, which means people of different races living apart. White supremacy has often resulted in anti-black racism and antisemitism (Anti-Jewish hate).

Different kinds of white supremacy have different ideas of whiteness, and not all white supremacist groups agree on which group is their worst enemy.
