A high proportion of its infrastructure was built by black slaves, oppessed Chinese workers, and marginalised Hispanic labourers.
That does not mean its currently a white supremacist nation, at best you could argue that it benefited from such a past, but that would be like saying a white liberal today is a white supremacist because he inherited a house that was built by his slave-owning great great grand father.
Which is fucking dumb.

Please provide evidence for this claim. Thanks.

The popular vote went to the progressive Hillary Clinton, a black man was president for two terms, the national policies of the united states are not white supremacist doctrines, and the poorest county in the United States is majority white.
Those who say that having a racist past or having some racists among the population necessitates a nation be categorized as white supremacist, would have to argue that all white majority nations are white supremacist under that criteria. Which is typical leftist insanity.
