The label White, in and of itself, is not right. Not even when attempting to call it out.
What I mean is this:
- Misplacing credit to one’s white skin solidifies the false notion that being white makes one inherently worthy of privilege. White as a race, as a marker of privilege, is a sleight of hand. The distraction of the term allows for endless well-meaning discussions, ones that attempt to identify problems, symptoms, and distinctions, but no change.
 the definition of the term here should be “morally good or justified.” The definition of “true or correct” also works…
 It’s the age-old trick used to make the coins in the hands of the Other disappear and reappear in the pocket of the magician.
