I think I agree with this idea, and I’ve heard it before. The tricky part is that while we want white identified folks to move past seeing themselves as “white" and reject their allegiance to whiteness, we don’t want that to translate into not being held accountable for the historical privilege they have enjoyed, or the attitudes they need to unlearn, or the systems they need to dismantle. They need to do both — reject whiteness, and make up for all the inequality it has caused.
