white supremacy

Keep. A Merriam-Webster term, also defined in other popular mono- and bilngual dictionaries. Even though it seems unfair to other races or ethnicities, whites are at the top of the food chain, that's why the term exists and is common. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 02:20, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Keep. The fact of this being an ideology is what makes it non-idiomatic. Going just by the literal meanings, one could say that there is "white supremacy" in ice hockey and "black supremacy" in basketball, but if you actually said that, you'd get some funny looks because the phrases carry ideological connotations. bd2412 T 02:51, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
That distinction should be covered by a proper definition of supremacy. Delete all. --WikiTiki89 03:18, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
A "proper definition" of supremacy would not counter the fact that referring to "white supremacy" in contexts outside of human racial strife is just plain wrong. bd2412 T 03:58, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Kept. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 01:46, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

black supremacy

Arab supremacy‎

Seems obvious SoP as no other way to interpret this than as supremacy of the white (black or Arabs). Note supremacy has a dedicated sense, thought it probably shouldn't. And if it should, it needs to be worded so it's correct. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:14, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Delete, but I think the dedicated sense at supremacy is necessary. — Ungoliant (Falai) 18:16, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Abstain on "black supremacy" and "Arab supremacy". --Dan Polansky (talk) 22:13, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Absent further comment, I am going to close black supremacy and Arab supremacy‎ as "no consensus" after the next 24 hours. bd2412 T 22:10, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

I disagree with the outcome of white supremacy but if we're going for consistency and appealing to an 'ideological' sense of the word, then we should keep black supremacy and Arab supremacy (or sense of racial supremacy or national supremacy). So yes, I think a no-consensus close should be appropriate. TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 04:11, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

No consensus to delete. bd2412 T 17:19, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
