EXCLUSIVE SHORT for The Herland Report TV (HTV): “White supremacy is killing America. Racism is operating the way it has always operated, and that is by maintaining the structures of power, the rich and white at the top and everyone else at the bottom”.
This says Dr. Reginald Davis (watch it here), professor, author, frequent radio guest and lecturer all over America, pastor of the historic First Baptist Church in Virginia.
In a series of Herland Report TV interviews, we are speaking to some of the leading voices in the US about what went wrong with American culture.
The superpower used to be known for being a multiracial society where people were unified by American national identity, today society is disintegrating and fractured into sub-groups based on race, religion, gender and class. What changed in America?
Dr. Davis states: “Race is just a tool that the oppressor to keep us divided. There is an old cliche that says “divide and conquer”. So, if you can divide the groups at the bottom – black, white, brown, yellow – that means that the people at the top can maintain those structures. That is what we mean with institutional racism.”
TV Interview: White Supremacy is killing America: He says: “White supremacists say that “I am supposed to have the most of the best and the least of the worst, and everyone that does not look like me are supposed to have the most of the worst and the least of the best.”
“So, untill we begin to change people’s consciousness, – we can change the condition, but we need to change the consciousness first – and if you change the consciousness then the condition itself will change.”

TV Interview: White Supremacy is killing America: “So, racism is operating like it always has operated, that is you want to maintain the structures of power. The powerful rich, white at the top and everybody else at the bottom. In the process of that structure, I don’t mind making changes like putting a black face in the White House, but that will still not dramatically change the structure.”
“So, that the poor people have to link up, economics, not color. So, race is just a tool that the oppressor to keep us divided. So, if I can use the tool of color to make people that don’t look like me feel that they are superior to me, based upon color, look how I can keep them divided.”
“There is an old cliche that says “divide and conquer”. So, if you can divide the groups at the bottom – black, white, brown, yellow – that means that the people at the top can maintain those structures. That is what we mean with institutional racism.”
“Institutional racism is still very much alive and well in America. It is sad to say, but if other nations do not watch out, they will emulate America.”
