Absolutely! I love this article.

This is part and parcel of all the work that white people, in particular liberal white people, do to prevent realization of their own onerous roles in maintaining white supremacy. These are people who think of themselves as the ‘good’ ones, a feat only possible with a great deal of cognitive dissonance, AKA self-deception.

At some point, these lies will comprise frank and definitive psychosis unless whites, especially the liberal ones, admit their robust roles in maintaining the system. White supremacists are already admitting it! The only good thing about them is their honesty. This is something white liberals lack, at least with regard to themselves.

White liberals should consider being honest with themselves. This may lead to the inception of giving things back to those who have earned them — inclusive of prizes and awards — and some sort of admission that the shenanigans this article describes, whether conscious or not, comprise white behavior in holding up the same system: white supremacy.
