Power in the absolute is power et al. Yet power in application or expression and/or context or limitation is not so. In the latter case there is a great void between contrasting forms of power.

And in no context is the contrast between the effective sorts of power in application more stark and dichotomic than in it is between “racial” groups, specifically between Black Power and White Power. Indeed, Black Power and White Power are totally antithetical to each other.

Black Power, as society has sadly seen time and time again, is the power to destroy. White Power, as evidenced by the lasting greatness and puissance of America, is the power to build, preserve, and conserve.
