I was raised in a conservative Christian home in the relatively conservative and at least culturally conservative Midwest. I was disposed towards traditional mores for as long as I can remember. My foundation in the Christian faith was a constant safeguard against encroaching modernity. I recall being inundated during my days in public grade school with praise for the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and especially for “Dr.” King. I recall my father taking a decidedly more neutral position on the subject of “civil rights.” He stated that whites had at times harmed non-whites, but that since the 1960s many whites have been harmed by policies aimed at helping non-whites. I also recall my father telling me that while he didn’t believe that interracial marriage was a sin, he thought that it was a selfish act because of the social problems associated with being mixed-race. I’m very thankful for what my father taught me, even though he hasn’t embraced Kinism for various reasons. Without my father’s instruction, I know that I would not have been disposed to questioning the mainstream narratives being taught in school. And question is just what I did.
I discovered Kinism during high school and had fully embraced Kinist principles by the time I began college. After taking the red pill, I felt ecstatic to finally understand how the world works. I had to share my newfound knowledge with just about everyone, and this included my friends and family members. Naturally, most everyone thought (and many still do) that I was crazy. The “anti-racist” (or rather anti-white) metanarrative has been so completely imbibed by most people in our modern society that it is virtually impossible to convince even committed conservative Christians of traditional views of race and national identity. I now understand that I made several mistakes during my earlier attempts to persuade my loved ones of the truth of my more consistently Christian approach to race. I was often overly rash in my approach to topics of race or culture. My words were at times unnecessarily harsh and critical of those to whom I owed respect and deference.
For a time these mistakes impeded my ability to foster healthy relationships with family and friends. It is important to live as a full-fledged Kinist by nurturing as many healthy relationships with my family and co-ethnics as possible. Far too often some white nationalists relish the feeling of being a rebel pariah to their families who have rejected them for being “racist.” This is not to say that our beliefs can or should be compromised in order to keep the peace. There are many things worth fighting for, and the topic of race is of profound importance and connects to the very root of the Gospel itself. I would like to share some of the lessons that I have learned, often the hard way, in dealing with friends or family members still stuck in an alienist mindset.1
#1: Be Gracious and Courteous
The topic of race is certainly contentious, so there is no need to make it more contentious than necessary. I recall many times in which I did not express my opinions in a charitable way, generating more heat than light. At times my overly belligerent approach to the subject of race shut down communication between myself and those I was trying to convince. After discovering the truth of Kinism, I often found myself angered by the many crimes and atrocities committed by non-whites against whites simply because they were white. I am angered even more by the attempts of the media, academia, and even the clergy to distort reality to prop up their false narrative. This anger is certainly valid, because these types of injustices ought to make us angry. It is important to make sure that this anger is directed at the right source, and not unnecessarily vented at friends or family members who happen to be ignorant of the truth.
Many conservative Christians would be inclined to agree with us if they had not been so woefully misinformed. This does not excuse the ignorance of anyone, because we are all accountable for knowing the truth. But a distinction must be made between those who perpetuate the lies of our modern society and those who have been misled. We must make an effort to check anger that can be misdirected at those who are merely ignorant of the truth but who might be willing to learn. Our own disposition should not be a stumbling block. People are trained by the prevailing mores of post-Christian culture to reject “racism” immediately without giving any consideration to whether or not a particular statement is factual or not. Our challenge is to rise above this antagonism and to give gentle answers to often hostile questions that we receive so as to turn away wrath from those we are working to convince of the truth (Prov. 15:1). To the best of our ability, we should strive to live at peace with everyone (Rom. 12:18), and if we are rejected for being a “racist,” let it not be because we have unnecessarily driven others away.
Our task is to convince our friends and relatives that we love them, and want them to understand Kinism because we believe it to be true and beneficial for all people. We must gently and patiently instruct them in the hope that God will deliver them from the lies of our modern age (2 Tim. 2:24-26). It is especially important to give our parents the proper respect and honor they deserve (Ex. 20:12; Deut. 5:16; cf. Eph. 6:2). As Kinists we defend patriarchy as the biblical paradigm for family and society, and we must practice this in our own families as well. Even if our parents are not now inclined towards Kinism, they may be won over by according them the proper respect they are due. Kinism must begin for us at home by demonstrating to our families that we seek their welfare. We can accomplish this by being sensitive to any concerns they may have while remaining firm in our convictions.
#2: Focus on the Positive
A good strategy to avoiding unnecessary offense is to focus on the positive elements of Kinism. It is important to make it clear that race realism or ethnonationalism does not essentially involve hatred of non-whites. Explain that Kinism holds the identities of all nations to be a special outworking of God’s sovereign providence. Part of this blessing is that God has provided the nations with their own unique land inheritances in order that the dominion mandate given to Adam and Eve should be fulfilled (Deut. 32:8-9; cf. Gen. 1:27-28). Emphasize that God also ordained national boundaries as a means of spreading the Gospel (Acts 17:26-27), and that the nations themselves are the objects of evangelism (Matt. 28:19-20). These nations retain their distinct identities even within the body of Christ for all eternity (Rev. 21:24-26; 22:2). Point your friends and relatives to the writings of conservative Christians of the past that are clearly consistent with the Kinist paradigm. Ask them if it is reasonable to actually believe that so many Christians of the past were merely blinded by nothing more than bitter hatred, or is it possible that these men might have known what they were talking about? All of these facts will help inquiring friends and relatives see Kinism in a positive light.
#3: Attack the Narrative
Of course, race realism isn’t confined to positive affirmations. The negative realities of race are bound to come up in conversation sooner or later. You’ll be asked questions about a variety of topics such as slavery, lynching, interracial marriage, transracial adoption, civil rights, citizenship, and immigration. Be ready with clear and concise answers to these questions. The anti-white narrative has a stranglehold on the minds of everyone today, so it needs to be attacked and deconstructed. There is plenty of material to work with in current events. Point out how shootings of black criminals by police are manipulated by the media to gin up hatred against white people, often resulting in massive race riots where innocent whites are intentionally targeted. The Color of Crime, updated every few years by the New Century Foundation, is a great resource when discussing crime and race.
George Orwell famously quipped in 1984, “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The anti-white narrative is so deeply entrenched because of people’s false understanding of history, so it is necessary to know and communicate the truth about what has happened in history. Topics such as slavery and lynching are bound to be discussed, and they should be. A proper understanding of history is absolutely essential for a healthy understanding of the present and the future. Whites are being robbed of our historical accomplishments in the collective conscience of our nation today in order to justify anti-white policies. I can say from personal experience that understanding the truth about history was essential to my own embrace of Kinism, and that those who remain willfully ignorant of history will never be able to be convinced, even when confronted with the truth in the present.
#4: Never Back Down from the Truth
Even if you take pains to avoid all offense on the subject of race, you will assuredly offend someone. There are bound to be occasions in which people will express offense at what you say, no matter how diplomatically that information is presented. This is to be expected because the topic of race is so important and the anti-white narrative has been so thoroughly absorbed by Christians today, often with the church’s direct assistance and approbation. People are often offended by the truth, because our sinful natures naturally rebel against what we find uncomfortable. It’s important to stand your ground and never back down from the truth. We are called as Christians to boldly proclaim the truth in the face of opposition, even if it comes from our own household (Matt. 10:36). Apologizing won’t improve your circumstances, because an apology will be perceived as nothing more than an admission of guilt. There have been countless examples of whites falling on their swords to appease a public outcry over the most innocuous of comments. Apologizing has never helped to actually rehabilitate them, but has only served as confirmation in the eyes of the liberal establishment that they really were “racist” all along. By refusing to back down you are also refusing to surrender the moral high ground, which is crucial to making real progress with those you are attempting to convince. Meaningful dialogue requires that the word “racism” lose its magical powers to silence all dissent.
#5: Be Patient and Trust in God’s Divine Providence
Don’t expect to produce many conversions to the Kinist position. Accepting a Kinist understanding takes years of serious study that requires someone to swim upstream against the currents of modern mainstream society. Many are not going to take the time and put forth the effort in our current cultural climate. Sadly, this applies even to many in conservative Christian churches today. We are assured of Christ’s final victory over sin and the power of the devil over the world, and this includes the cultural Marxist agenda. I wish that history was progressing more rapidly towards the final defeat of our enemies, but I must content myself with where God has placed me in history. Remain calm and patient, and realize that God is not depending upon you to accomplish his purposes. Keeping these principles in mind, I wish everyone success in their worthy efforts at convincing their loved ones of the truth.
- For the purposes of this article, I am intending this advice to be used with family or friends who identify as conservative Christians. Non-Christians and liberals are even further removed from the truth and must be convinced of traditional Christian doctrines and ethics before they can even begin to ponder something like Kinism. ↩
