Jessica – I think that one of the things that I am dealing with is the need to separate whiteness from the color of our skin. For example, I look at Candace Owens. She argues from a standpoint of perpetuating systemic white supremacy while she herself is Black. At the same time, I was married to a white woman for years, and for many of those years, we were poor and on welfare — thus making it feel as though white supremacy wasn’t a reality because we lived as a white family and were living in a minority-like situation.
I think more than the color of your skin is the mentality, and understanding that is an important step.
