A post on racismreview [link above] rises a question: Do whites have the right to criticize Black people by using them as an example of being an obstacle in the fight against racism? (My personal answer to this is no, I think we whites don’t have the right).
Why do some white anti-racists or so use Black people as a public example of an obstacle in the fight against racism, when it is whites who are the real obstacle?
Yes, it can be quite irritating for a white to come across Black people who deny or diminish the impact of racism or write articles and books that feed the stereotypes many whites already have or also serve as some sort of absolution for whites, when even a Black person says that racism is not the problem.
Black confederates who wave the confederate flag or Black republicans who talk more like white supremacists can be challenging at the first moment.
At the second glimpse – what do we know as whites how it feels to be Black. Nothing. The sometimes internal struggles and perhaps internalized racism we will never feel on our own and why some Black people make the choice to become Republicans is perhaps just not white people’s business.
