“There is nothing about you biologically or physically that denotes an innate mode of supremacy. For that matter there is also nothing about you psychologically, philosophically, cognitively, academically, socially, architecturally, culturally or even financially that signifies a higher position above any other group,” he wrote.

“And to be diplomatic there is nothing about you that denotes innate inferiority as well. So what you really are is something in the middle. You are regular.”

He highlighted some important facts and threw in some sarcasm for good measure.

“One color does not dominate the other nor can it. Sure Steve Jobs was white. But the guy who built the computer was probably Chinese. And the girl who wrote the programs for the computer is probably from Mumbai. And the raw materials that were used to make it were probably first pulled out of the ground by somebody in South Africa,” he said.

“In closing white regularity (the race formerly know as white supremacy) I myself on behalf of my own black regularity salute you. Good luck with the northwest front I hear it’s beautiful in the spring and probably a strategic death trap if and when Yellowstone finally decides to blow up!”
