I try to field the nonsense and draw fire from other POC way too exhausted or out of resources to endure the onslaught of white ignorance.

At the same time I try to propagate understanding in white people so they can basically do the same for me.
White people should be doing the work I do so I can stop teaching remedial racism.
Imagine the discussions that would be possible if I could ever get past the fact that racism is not and never has been about white fee-fees.
Imagine if the stuff I've been discussing just spread as basic knowledge about whiteness by white people.

POC would be freed up to address the issues that come from racism instead of constantly having to prove it exists and explain what it is.
I long for the day that white people stop telling me that the rudimentary, basic-ass, ground level information that I provide them about whiteness and its relationship to racism in America is somehow mind-blowing or novel, or expanded their horizons.
