Let’s call a spade a spade shall we.
The "not all white people" trope or clichè is a perfect sublimation of and for their racist behavior to be falsely justified and legitimated as some innate human conditioning. No matter how cerebral or sincere it may sound I assure you it is not.
For those who cry reverse racism when the heavy burden of truth is upon them, my disgust, and distrust for white and non-white people of color who are imbued with whiteness does not make me a racist, not even a little bit. My revulsions or aversion to whiteness is not based on the pseudo profoundness of racialization, it is based on a realization of the harm and evil that inspires the existence of whiteness, its racial heirarchies, subjugations, its supremacism, its hatreds and thus its racism. Whiteness is made to make you believe that it in and of itself it is standard and normal. I assure you again it is not. It has no essential quality therefore it is not natural.
Whiteness which conjures racism is a predetermined choice. It is premeditated, subconscious and very conscious. It has criminal and fraudulent intent which necessitates strict liability as an offence.
These racist "I'm not a racist" or "not all white people" characters think they are being clever, or sincere, but the smirk on my face and the faces of many skeptically intelligent people should already tell them that we are on to them. This overused tired rhetoric just proves the mendacious stupidity encased in their individual and collective being.
And the claims and excuses of heuristics and cognitive biases are just that...excuses. They allow for such evil vice to become virtue in their hallucinations as they conjecturally try to avoid the moral culpability that whiteness and or racism induces.
And so this insightfully frank piece specifically and casually calls a spade a spade. Being a little racist or being fearful, or being fragile, or being stupid, or being ignorant, or being shallow, or acculturated, or just asserting your 1st amendment privileges is still being a racist.
I suggest they all take a knee to this as well, even when the national anthem is not playing because pledging to the racism embedded into the founding of this country makes us divisible, and not one nation under God, it is with constraints and injustice for all to be complicit in this symbolic paradoxical gesture of pledging allegiance to the the flag of the United States, as it were and as it is.
