  1. To answer your question obviously neither is the correct answer, they both have downsides. But if I had to choose I’d choose the white communist, they actually can be converted if you can get them to talk to you one on one. Many on the right, from conservatives to white nationalists are former communists including myself (though I was never that committed to it).

    The black conservative neighbor might be better in the short term but would have downsides in the long term.

    Many on the alt right are “national socialists” but consider themselves economically centrist not leftist. That is, they are above the left-right dichotomy. However they are definitely on the right in the social dimension, and this includes traditionalism, gender roles, identitarianism, and ethnocentrism. This is way more important to us than any kind of economic theory. A socialist white state can always become a capitalist one later and vice versa. Once you destroy the ethnic composition of the state, its history, identity and culture is forever lost. Don’t tell me your Based Black Friend is going to carry the torch, for every one of those there are a hundred ethnocentric nonwhites who would rather take your state for themselves and replace its culture and identity with theirs. Dismissing all ideas based on the word “socialism” or “marxism” is for cuckservative boomers.

    Please read this academic paper showing that ethnocentrism will always dominate and exploit a humanitarian group (eg egalitarian, civic nationalist).
