As if these were bad things! Perhaps ALL Americans should strive to think and act the same way “whites” (as defined in this article) do.
From the article, Whiteness, Talking About Race:
If you identify as white, acknowledging your white racial identity and its privileges is a crucial step to help end racism. Facing your whiteness is hard and can result in feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear. Dr. Robin DiAngelo coined the term white fragility to describe these feelings as “a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.” Since white people “live in a social environment that insulates them from race-based stress,” whites are rarely challenged and have less of a tolerance to race-based stress.
