Human supremacy was a belief held by a number of humans following the introduction of replicants.

History[edit | edit source]

The belief of human supremacy existed from the very beginning of replicant production, due to their being designed for the purpose of slave labor. After a mutiny staged by Nexus-6 combat units in 2018,[1] replicants were forbidden from Earth. Blade Runner units were assigned to retire any replicant on the planet. Derogatory terms such as "skinjob" had come into common use by the year 2019.[2]

Following the introduction of the Nexus-8, which possessed a natural lifespan, a human supremacy movement gained steam. This group utilized the Replicant Registration database to identify, hunt down, and kill replicants. This led directly to the Blackout orchestrated by replicants and their advocates.[3]

Anti-replicant sentiment continued well into 2049, evidenced by Nexus-9 replicant Blade Runner K being harassed by co-workers and fellow tenants.[4]
