The sad fact is that most white people lack the MORAL cognition to perceive the damage that they cause on a daily basis. This lack of moral cognition will either be addressed by them, or the drive to restore basic human dignity within the group of POC (90% human race) in the face of repeated assaults and subordination will necessarily precipitate. This overarching response will simply be a matter of restoring self-dignity and morality to POC in the context of white dominant behavior, and at some point it won’t matter anymore if whites are participating. Of course, it is certainly desirable that they admit this lack of moral cognition and make honest attempts to participate, but at some point it won’t matter. At that point, for POC there will either be the memory of true white allies who admitted this moral deficiency, or the reality that they chose not to face their egregious behaviors. This is a choice — and work — that whites should be doing, not POC who are already embattled by the results of white supremacy.
