Hi Kate, thanks for commenting. I completely agree that this behaviour isn’t restricted to white people. I do think though, it would be naive to ignore the history of a power dynamic, which means race and economics become impossible to disentangle.
The reason I addressed white people is because I am white. I do believe we need to start having these convos in our own spaces, so that they aren’t “safe” for racists and bigots.
Thank you for commenting, I’m all open for a dialogue, anything I said definitely doesn’t have to be true or the norm.
