Drawing Lines: The Myth of The White Radical

White radicals far too often are given passes by non-whites. They are given cookies for regurgitating thoughts that were shared to them from their non-white friends. They are recognized as radical for criticizing their white culture even though they still benefit from it. Often I’ve found myself disappointed by the self proclaimed white rads. People who are so quick to take lead on projects, get in front of cameras, write about other’s resistance, and talk to the cops, but unable to hear non-whites when being called out for their anti-blackness and white supremacist tendencies.
