I can only speak as a white man whose ancestors came from Ireland 150 years ago and settled on stolen Mississauga nation land in what is now southern Ontario, thus going from colonized to colonizers and assimilating into a system of structured white supremacy. In the name of the profit motive, in the name of capitalism, that structure has persisted in systemically brutalizing, murdering and marginalizing black and brown people, while systemically enlisting and weaponizing white people as its chosen instruments.
At this point, I think it would be deluded to not see that white people face a stark choice. They can either stand with black and brown people, reject racism, work to break down and overthrow this capitalist system of white supremacy and colonialism, progressively transforming themselves in the process and forging a new path forward. Or they can become the bigoted instruments of a rising fascist order that will destroy everything in its path and threaten the survival of life on earth. That’s the choice. There is nothing in between. Which side are you on?
