This is another excellent article. It is so hard to find writers really willing to dig into the psychology of our behaviors and the way we operate in a white supremacist context, and this one really does it. Like you, I really like DiAngelo’s insights because they dig into the psychological backdrop of the invention of ‘race.’ She really pulls out the truths of the binary (Black/White) in her book, but I think your writing about the Black experience is integral, because it comes from someone who is embedded in the experience all the time.

Thanks so much for your insights!
