I’ve never understood this notion perpetuated by some POC bloggers that white people should use their white privilege to speak out against white privilege. Like, it literally is so mind numbingly contradictory, you might as well be saying the best way to put out a fire is to set the fire on fire.
You can’t use white privilege to dismantle white privilege, because that perpetuates white privilege, and if you are perpetuating white privilege, in what sense have you possibly deluded yourself into thinking you’re dismantling it?
