Sometimes when this is highlighted people are assumed to be acting on “white guilt” but I think that is a misnomer. Guilt implies an understanding of the harm you have caused someone, and a desire to act in a way to mitigate its effects. I think a closer definition, and I mean no offense by this, would be “white narcissism.” Narcissistic behavior (at least as I understand it from reading the last psychiatrist) is basically defined as behaving in ways to create a positive story about ones self in order to maintain high self image.
White Guilt is actually White Narcissism

I love it. I’ve been working on a blog post about #whitenarcissism since around or before you posted this. I gotta say that I’m very impressed by your perspective and the way you explained it. Thank you for writing this.
