I wanna follow up to say something plainly. One of the biggest and most insidious forms of white supremacist patriarchy is that white men teach each other how to win at this game. And we're often not invited.
What we teach people to say publicly is "it takes hard work". And sure, that's part of it. But it also requires both luck, and a true understanding of the rules of the game. That last part often stays hidden, because those who are savvy know that's where the fix gets in.
It's not only white men who play this game. But when combined with other forms discrimination and oppression, they continue to be the most successful at maintaining their lead.
Nobody wants to hear that the game is rigged. It's disheartening and demoralizing. It takes maturity and self-awareness to understand and accept that this is true. And to know we have to find a way to move forward anyway, while doing our best to improve things if we can.
This is especially true for white men who are just gaining the maturity and self-awareness to understand that they've been benefitting from this privilege for a long time without realizing it.
