White fragility is alive and well. It’s taken a long time to develop, since it is embedded in a system in which people earning less have consistently stolen more by using the deeply flawed delusion of superiority.
This is a national embarrassment.
Once whites get together and acknowledge their massive advantage AND move forward to redistribute what has been stolen from others for centuries, we as a nation can move forward.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem all whites favor taking responsibility for their heavy feet, ones which rest on the necks of people of color, and instead labor heavily — using energy that could be used constructively — to pretend this massive advantage doesn’t even exist.
The reason this is sad is because at some point, the demographic will shift, and at that point, people who have been oppressed for generations are going to push back.
Of course, none of this push back is necessary if whites will take proper responsibility, get together, and formulate a process for paying back stolen monies. The large group of oppressed people will not need to take action if whites act morally.
Hopefully, you can help convince more of them that moral behavior is relevant.
