It isn’t about feeling guilty for being white, it’s about motivating yourself and other white people to stand up against a culture which permits the murder of people of color to go unreported and blames them for getting angry about it. Not to mention the wage gap, stigmas perpetuated about people of color, misrepresentation in the media, etc. If the aforementioned pisses you off less than being asked to shut up and listen or admit that white privilege does exist, you have a serious problem.
People ask me all the time if I’m “asking them to be guilty about being white.” NO! This explains it. -Jess
