If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.
~ Malcolm X

Black supremacy, also known as Black Power, is the black counterpart of the White Power Movement. In its most extreme form black supremacy can be seen to mirror white supremacy in the desire to ensure that non-blacks are either suppressed or (more commonly) excluded from society - many champion a break-away system based on race and although this is not entirely immoral in itself some members of the movement have been willing to commit acts of terrorism to promote their cause.

It can be argued that black supremacy is a "hatred that hatred birthed" in the sense that it has its roots in slavery and the subsequent battle for equal rights, which some African-Americans still do not believe truly exists - in turn, this has embittered some of the African-American community and (in the worst case scenarios) installed a xenophobic hatred and/or mistrust of non-blacks in the mind of some in the community. Organization that hold these ideals include the New Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, and the Nuwaubian Nation, all of which are considered to be hate groups.

Black supremacy should not be confused with "black pride", as it is perfectly acceptable for someone to take pride in their heritage - it only becomes supremacy when the pride becomes so strong that one tries to suppress or exclude others from society.

Arguably, the most extreme example of black supremacy can be found in the disturbing tale of the Zebra Murders.
