‘I’m Not Just White, I’m French’

Constant Assertions of Individuality are Akin to ‘White Lives Matter’

“If politics in the West is ever to return to normal rather than becoming even more polarized, white interests will need to be discussed…In an era of unprecedented white demographic decline it is absolutely vital for it to have a democratic outlet.” Eric Kaufmann

“The singularity of whiteness is the main reason Caucasians object to any mention of racism without ‘Not all white people.’ They do not tolerate the collective whiteness that they simultaneously use to excuse mass incarceration, racial profiling, police brutality.” Michael Harriott

“Chauvinist legitimation narratives that portrayed European-based societies as the progressive vanguard of the human race produced an almost invisible support structure for the collective self-esteem of all those who could claim such a European identity…” Linda Martin Alcoff
