    "white supremacy" is racist.

    White separatism, not so much.

    Nationalism, not at all.

    Better than Democrats and merely try to push their racist history onto Republicans.

    No, he wants to justify his own racist remarks by trivializing the terms.
    "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

    Who appointed you to the Thought Police? Terms are neither trivial nor monumental. They're just words. They describe things.

    One man, brief in space, must spread his opposition
    across a period of many years if he is
    to have a chance of succeeding"
