Getting rid of racism requires clarity about the nature of the enemy. The way to defeat white supremacy is to destroy it.

What does that mean? To "destroy it"? What is "it" and how do we destroy it? Are we going to drop bombs on someone? Have them fired? Thrown in jail? If so, who exactly? Will that eliminate racism? Reduce it to neglible levels?

I don't know how to get rid of racism, but I'm not impressed by the offering vacuous clich├ęs like that either.
