Gentle reminder to creators of worlds that white supremacy, while it is currently dominant in our world and seems all-encompassing, is neither inevitable nor "natural." It isn't even all that old. It arose under extremely specific historical circumstances, and can go away when circumstances change. To posit white supremacy as some kind of inevitable default without those specific circumstances is to give white supremacy more power than it has by unquestioningly imposing our current assumptions on worlds where the background conditions don't exist. It's incoherent worldbuilding and comes close to saying that white people are naturally "superior." I understand that authors want to explore real-world issues in their works, but it's ineffective if the integrity of the work is compromised.
