Video Cast: American Exceptionalism vs. White Supremacy

Sorry I have been absent for a couple of weekends on these videos, but it's back! I wanted to discuss the liberal and conservative concepts of American exceptionalism, and how the latter is really at best a direct heir of white supremacy. Here it is:



What the right wing describes as "American exceptionalism" is really a extended concept of White supremacy - in essence saying that rules that apply to everyone don't apply to America because it is inherently superior to other countries (mostly because of its whiteness). The real American exceptionalism lies in the liberal version: building an exceptional country and an exceptional society that gives everyone a fair shot. THAT is what the world can look up to say that America is an exceptional country.
