Anglo-Americans have become so disconnected from their actual ethnic heritage & have so embraced the racial/social construct of "White" that many do not know how to distinguish b/t the two. You criticize "Whiteness" and many actually believe you are talking about their ethnicity.
If I was to fill out the form at the doctor's office (or anywhere else), it would ask me if I am "Eastern Asian, Hispanic, Carribean, etc. black, or white. I know by checking black I'm admitting to being a descendant of African Diaspora; true ethnic origins stripped away/lost...
Many Anglo-Americans actually believe checking White on such a form is actually affirming an ethnicity not a social/racial caste. Who is white? From what country/tribe do they come from?
Eastern Europe :
England
UK
Norway
Germany
Ireland
Scotland
France
Russia
Switzerland
etc.
Anglo-Americans don't realize that their ethnicities were stripped away from them as well. Their ethnic identities were taken away and replaced with a socially constructed "racial" identity rooted in power. Their ethnic identity was exchanged for power.
What's sad is when black people try to help them out, they get attacked and are hated. It is no easy task trying to help anglo-Americans realize they are disconnected from their ethnic heritage and rediscovering it is of greater value than the power they possess thru "whiteness".
This is a Gospel Kingdom issue.

How?

B/c "White" will not be seen among the tribes/people groups of Revelation 7:9. It'll be cast into the lake of fire. "White" Christians will stand b4 throne as members of their actual ethnic groups. Their actual ethnicities are beautiful.
Okay, let me go ahead and ad to this thread cuz many are missing the point. I’m hearing a lot of, “but I don’t have cultural ties to my ancient European herotsge!”

There is a difference between “ethnic heritage” and “cultural expression”. No one’s ethnic heritage is “white”...
My point is that people who understand themselves to be ethnically white are misled. Whiteness is a social construct that was created to REPLACE ethnicity in order to establish power. Anglo peoples need to stop finding ethnic heritage in whiteness instead of their real heritage.
Rediscovering your heritage and roots does not mean you magically inherit said culture. It does mean you find identity in a place other than power/white supremacy but from there you must do the work of isolating elements of your culture that are rooted in “white” paradigms.
A white person from Georgia does not have to abandon southern cultural expressions such as food, clothing, music, etc. they do need to abandon elements of culture that are rooted in white supremacy like championing the confederate flag & racist vernacular.
A white personal from Texas doesn’t have to abandon Texas culture or subcultures such as clothing, lingo, dance, etc. but they do have to abandon elements of culture that are rooted in white supremacy such as racist vernacular, white hyper-sensitivity/fragility, paternalism, etc.
Beloved, you have an ethnic identity & it isn’t “white”. You may be multi-ethnic like me when you trace it back but you still have an ethnicity beyond the social construct of race/whiteness. Discover that & seek appreciation for it. Doesn’t mean you must embrace a foreign culture
I am black with a multi-ethnic heritage. I acknowledge my multi-ethnic ancestry, am thankful for it, but culturally I am black.

On this side of heaven I will always be black, a descendant of the African Diaspora ode ethnic heritage was stolen and out of necessity refashioned...
On the last day, I and a host of others will stand before the thrown alongside a multitude of others who suffered under the oppression of whiteness and we will be a people, a people called black. At the same time, I long for the day Christ reveals tonky my African ancestry....
And here is the real kicker, I may see some of my African ancestors in heaven as Christianity saturated Africa long before it went to Europe! It is absolutely possible that I will fellowship with my African ancestors in glory! 🙌🏽
