“I think the average white person, even maybe the average white antiracist, doesn’t care if their thinking is deformed and their picture of the world is distorted. This deformed and distorted reality has worked for the average white person for such a long time that it’s considered a valid perception, and that the view that argues that the white view is deformed/distorted is “just another point of view”.”
“White Supremacy is an historically based, institutionally perpetuated system of exploitation and
oppression of continents, nations, and peoples of color by white peoples
and nations of the European continent, for the purpose of maintaining and
defending a system of wealth, power, and privilege.
I. What does it mean to say it is a system?
The most common mistake people make when they talk about racism is
to think it is a collection of prejudices and individual acts of
discrimination. They do not see that it is a system, a web of
interlocking, reinforcing institutions: economic, military, legal,
educational, religious, and cultural. As a system, racism affects every
aspect of life in a country.”
The question: Can somebody white with a deformed and distorted reality be anti-racist? I think, no.
