"many people who have racial privilege, all of whom will never have any tangible idea of what it’s like to experience the daily social and institutional indignities of being non-white in America."

This is important.
Maybe this will help explain it to my fellow white people who just “don’t get it”.

Black-ish

White people: Remember 911
White people: Remember the Holocaust
White people: Remember The Alamo
White people: Remember the American Revolution
White people: Remember Pearl Harbor
White people: Slavery? Come on are you still stuck on that? It's time to move on that was yearsssssss ago no one cares anymore
Why can't white people have pride
Black people: *raises fist* Black Power!* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
Latinos: *Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
Asian: people: Raises flag of individual nation* cooks* puts on cultural clothing*
White: White power! *considers every other race inferior*forces other races to give up cultures*spreads disease*commits genocide against a race of people because they're different and have land* Steals said land* kidnaps other race of people* enslaves them* brings them to said land* calls it the land of the free* rape,tortures, experiments, kills enslaved people* frees these people for political and financial reasons* dons white hoods terrorizes these people for over a century* takes pics smiling and having a picnic while these peoples bloody and charred bodies hang from trees* Makes souvenirs of these people body parts well into the 60s*sterilizes and experiments on these people without their consent up until the 70s(hell, probably still going on)* Creates beauty standard that no else can live up to* white washes history so that history begins with white contact and we have to do our own research to find out what really happened*Claims to be the only civilized race*
And that's just scratching the surface of American history. History tells us that y'all just don't know how to have white pride without some kind of craziness ensuing.Why not just have national pride? Y'all know where y'all came from.
