The belief that members of the white (i.e. those of European ancestry) race are superior to other races. Although the white race has a long and impressive list of accomplishments, whites who believe in white supremacy typically engage in the logical fallacy of assuming that they, as individuals, somehow share in these accomplishments because they share the same skin color or ancestry. The supremacy, or lack thereof, of a given race says nothing about the individual. When speaking of races, one necessarily speaks in terms of distributions in the values of any given attribute (e.g. intelligence, height/weight, running speed), but when refering to individuals, each has a fixed value. Caution must be taken not to engage in the fallacy of believing that because one is white and the white race has an impressive list of achievements as a whole, that one somehow inherits this prestige/value. Same applies to other races.
John decided that he is proud to be white and that blacks are inferior because Africa is mostly black and it is full of violence, poverty, famine and warfare and because Europe is mostly white and full of culture, technology, wealth and power. John, however, can't hold down a steady job, has an IQ less than 90, beats his wife and blames it all on affirmative action. John isn't smart enough to realize he is an individual, not a race, and that he is not supreme, he is a loser.

1. The tendency to favor paler breads that are not wheat, rye, or pumpernickel.

2. The preference for vanilla ice cream over chocolate, butterscotch, lemon chiffon, and whatnot.
"Get over your white supremacy, Justin. Pumpernickel is healthier than that Wonderbread shite."

The idea that some white people (normally white Protestant) have that whites are superior to other races because of the things white people have accomplished even though they themselves as a white person have accomplished nothing in life. These white supremacists are often white trash and are often from the southern part of the United States. These white supremacists usually have this belief because they are at the bottom of social ladder and they want to have someone below them. White supremacists think that just because they are a white all other things accomplished by white people are shared with themselves. They think that because another white person did something important that they themselves share that accomplishment just because they are of the same race.
Jim is a white supremacist. He believes in white supremacy. He believe he is better than everyone else because he is white and that there are lots of accomplished white people. But Jim himself is white trash, he lives in a trailer park, hasn't had a job in 5 years and is not successful in any way.

The belief that those of white background are superior to the rest of the world. This philosophy is promoted by the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.
In George Bush's America, he and his RepublicaNazi party support white supremacy.

A terrible condition of the human mind originating from the limbic system of the brain whereby those afflicted with said condition, build up a smug sense of superiority over others due to melanin levels in one's skin. Unbeknownst to the carrier of this condition is the irony and absurdity inherent in their behavior, seeing as they themselves are carriers of the same genes which controls the skin's ability to reflect UV light from the Sun and thus control skin color. Also lost on them is the fact that due to evolution and natural selection, nature turns on and off these genes as it sees fit but never discards them. The genes are specific to the the environment one finds themselves in. (i.e. People who live near the equator of the earth are more at risk of dangerous exposure to UV light and skin cancer than those in colder parts of the earth--hence people in the equator and southern hemisphere tend to be of a darker complexion, because that trait is more apt in dealing with the harsh Sun.

This trait is truly a marvel of nature and should be celebrated by all members of the human race but unfortunately it goes unnoticed. In its stead, comes the pseudo idea of white supremacy, despite the fact that there is no scientific link between one's skin color and their intelligence or supposed dominion over others.
The Primary mode of transmission of white supremacy is through word of mouth. This condition is often treated with scorn in many societies but like many faults inherited from our evolutionary past it has proven to be quite a daunting affliction to eradicate from our midst. If left untreated, it becomes part of the fabric of societies, dictating racist laws and consequently gives credence to the adage: "If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth".

Symptoms include: delusions of grandeur and a desire to dominate others. Historical advances in science and political thought have been able to beat back the tide of white supremacy. Despite the progress, this condition continues to set the human race back because it robs the afflicted of common sense and they in turn project this loss by also robbing others of their dignity, respect, and basic human rights. However, one can only hope that a gradual illumination of people's minds will bring an end to this affliction and help humanity reach its full potential.
