I defy Mr. Tisby here to do this analysis over without racializing things. And yes, HE is the one racializing things.

Do it again. Don't lean on garbage racist concepts like "whiteness."
The CRT trick to dodge the accusation that they're racializing things is to claim that the things are already racialized, so they have to use race to play on the racialized field, and they're just trying to level things out. It's a garbage approach that denies shared humanity.
The argument goes that racialism is the ordinary state of affairs, the status quo, of society, and that the people who benefit from a racialized society aren't even aware that it's racialized because they've socialized themselves into willful ignorance and false consciousness.

The antidote to Wokeness is to see problematizing (dialectical negation) as ugly and mean, not helpful.
To nuance that, dialectical negation is only appropriate when it takes on real bullying power, which, for the moment, would render Wokeness on the list of fair game.
People will still come after everything that gets put forward (with dialectical negation), and we can look down on that when it's something done with love or in the hopes of building. We can carry on. Negation is like spoiling someone's excitement, and it's shameful.

People who deny any evidence of election fraud exhibit a rhetorical strategy known as "election fragility," which is deployed when one knows there is evidence of massive election fraud and a lack of political stamina and political humility necessary to cope with that fact.
People denying election fraud often benefit from the election having been stolen. This makes them complicit in the fraud. Their fraud complicity is a feature of their political privilege. They deny fraud because they can't have their political comfort disrupted.
Election fraud is systemic. It is the ordinary state of affairs, not an aberration, in elections. The question is not "did election fraud take place?" but "how did fraud manifest in this election?" Anything that maintains the ruling class's political comfort is suspect.

If you made something really worth having and made just $1 profit per unit and sold it to 1/7 of the people in the world just one time each, you'd be a billionaire.
No wait, let me just break this down for you. If you made, say, iPhones, and you made just $1.38 in profit each on them, which is about a 0.3% profit margin, you'd be a billionaire.
Now let me really put this into perspective for you. If you made Coca-Cola and turned just 0.2¢ in profit per bottle sold, by the end of the year, you'd be a billionaire.

The interesting bit here is that it's true, strictly speaking, but the democracy is dysfunctional for opposite reasons depending on which side you're on. If you don't understand this and both sides, you understand nothing of what's happening right now.
The "Trump's kids are criminals" side is the obvious, easily understood side. The other is that there's justifiable fear that ppl associated with Trump will be illegitimately prosecuted by a corrupt state run by the Democrats, who have already openly signaled this sort of thing.
Remember, even a sitting Democratic Congresswoman, who has not been pressured to step down for it, indicated a need for accountability lists for Trump and his enablers, as they have it.
