Why is the term White Fragility is not... — White Fragility Q&AHes exhibiting white fragility, despite not being white? Hmm... okay. Not sure how much sense that makes... Im not sure white fragility was meant to be lobbed at EVERYONE—more specifically its targeting white identity (specifically in America, though it may be exported to other majority white countries). So are you saying white identity by proxy because hes essentially defending whites here?
Why 'white' isn't a racist slur

I hung out with a group of Indian-Australians while I was a first-year university student who called themselves 'curries', but the unspoken camaraderie and deep sense of pride that ensued from this self-identification stood in stark contrast to that time I was called a 'fucking curry' by a passing car full of white people. It is commonly understood why Indian-Australians are able to call themselves 'curries', while white people and, to a certain extent, other minorities are not — the desire to subvert the narrative and a shared understanding of the nuanced ways in which one can be an Indian-Australian allows this cultural group to reclaim the word without further entrenching negative stereotypes. Yet you often hear from white people, even the seemingly progressive ones, that they can't be called 'white' because that too is racist language. This reflects a flawed assumption that societal structures advantage and disadvantage people in the exact same way, and that we operate on a level playing field. To be white is to not face the same tangible repercussions that come with being a person of colour in Australia. White people aren't asked 'what's the deal with white people?
