American White Privilege: Like Water for Chocolate

The United States was founded as (and remains) fundamentally a white power structure on a molecular level.

Removing white privilege from the system/society while maintaining Liberty would be like removing wetness from water while maintaining liquidity. Unless the state of the union is reconstituted, it will be what it is.

The reason we don’t look at running water flowing, cold water freezing or hot water steaming and exclaim “this water is broken” is because we have a basic understanding of how water works, based on its molecular state.

White privilege and oppression of POC are the hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) of the United States (H2O). Systemic racism isn’t a sign of the system being “broken,” but that the system is working as designed. #dontBSyourself
