I’ve been learning and with each presentation different facets help things click.
 
What jumps out at me as a word that I can hang my White hat on, is:
Weaponize.
 
In which ways do I weaponize my racism?
 
Being familiar with weaponizing privilege in general, and weaponizing maleness, it wasn’t difficult for me to understand weaponizing Whiteness at least at the start, although I’m constantly learning.
 
For me,
A bleak and straightforward example of weaponizing Whiteness is in the Karen phenomenon. I used to call them “Condo Commandos” before Karen became the byword. What surprises a lot of White conservatives is that there are just as many White liberals who are Karens as there are conservative. They see this as a victory of sorts.
 
But it’s not. It just means to me that Whiteness as a binding force is stronger than political affiliation.
“CM: YES! YES! YES! and that is why whenever someone, regardless of color or political affiliation, brings race into this debate, I quickly try and bring them back to the topic at hand. This is a Race relevant discussion dealing with social consequences, not a political discussion.”
