It would be great if you provided an answer of your own instead of simply trying to deconstruct DiAngelo's answers. I'm struck by a recent incident in SF when a white woman confronted a Philipino man stenciling Black Lives Matter in chalk on the retaining wall around his house. Since it was a rich neighborhood, she didn't think he belonged there and called the police on his vandalism, or, as he later said, "called men with guns about chalk art." Later, when she saw herself on tape, she couldn't believe how racist her behavior was and apologized. I agree w DiAngelo that whites often don't see their own racism and now's the time to take a hard look and change a fundamentally unfair social structure. Whites must be involved in dismantling white supremacy. You're not helping here.
