This is also a fair point. It’s kind of controversial or radical to say, but it also appears to be true. That the most effective fighters against white nationalist or white supremacist views aren’t all the wonderful smart or educated or just, GOOD, people of other races, but instead are other white people who just aren’t racist. White privilege goes even deeper and further than I realized... who would have thought the best way to fight through White privilege is to use more White privilege? It’s fucked up to think, but maybe sometimes it IS better to fight one type of fire with another fire. Or in this case, with milk... because I’m not above making a horrible horrible joke in a SVfrom comments section to boost the algorithm. But seriously. That is what they just said... White nationalists fear progressive white people the most because they will shut down their argument very quickly, and because they too are white the racists can’t really fight it but get shamed into compliance. Maybe we should be encouraging more progressive white people to speak up and speak out? Although that sets a dangerous precedent because some will mean well but then will also make potentially other horribly offensive statements without even meaning to. I’m sure I’ve been guilty of it at some point.

and this is why black, Hispanic, and Asian unemployment was the LOWEST in HISTORY under Trump... Black entrepreneurship was 400% HIGHER under Trump than under Obama... if you are looking for "institutional racism" in America look no further than the institution called "the DEMOCRAT PARTY": 200 YEARS OF TRADITION: the party of slavery, the party that FOUNDED the KKK, the party that voted 87% against the 13th Amendment, voted 100% against the 14th and 15th Amendments, the party of Jim Crow, the party of segregation; the party that engaged in the LONGEST FILIBUSTER in US HISTORY to try and defeat the CIVIL RIGHTS ACT of 1964; the party of Joe Biden's 1994 Crime Bill... the only concrete evidence you can find with regard to "institutional racism" in America is packed to the brim in the democrat party. for those of you not interested in the truth, please, remain democrat and keep watching the propaganda you so eagerly invite into your homes through the television... the rest of us are prepping a YUGE bowl of popcorn for the show that is about to begin! Enjoy!

@natalie khanyola I don't know where you're getting your "facts" from, but the gap between the rich and the poor SHRANK more than ever under the Trump administration... my advice to everyone is to follow the facts. I don't vote and don't care about politics. I just care about my fellow man and through years of experience and study I've found that FREEDOM is a far better lifestyle that subservience to the Federal Government.

@Moe Zura yeah... I don't care about either one of them. Also according to public records black americans have less wealth per capital since the 70s. It's gotten worse because of trumps handling if covid and the fact that many black americans are vulnerable to the virus. Also republicans seem to love the confederacy more than any liberal/ democrat I know. So much for the party of Lincoln.

Years ago I saw the article Eli Saslow wrote about this and contacted him personally as the story was so beautifully written. A couple of years later I got an email from him saying that he had published a book of the story - partially because of direct feedback like that. Great to see an interview with Eli and Derek about this story!

America is always going to be racist that is the foundation of this countries always has been always will be. There's no hope other than time. Perhaps 200 years from now or 4 generations we can make a difference but if you black or any other race other than white get your money and mind your business ain't shit going to change not in this lifetime. I ain't trying to be negative I'm just going off of what I see and seen and what I foresee in the future.

I have even greater empathy for you. How exhausting it must have been to constantly hear "I'm not racist, I have a black _______ (friend, niece, nephew, cousin, etc)". Uuuuuuuugh It's infuriating. I've heard this so much recently! Honestly, It's worse bc I've said these things myself before. Thank you to anyone who ever dealt with those statements and took the time to explain it to those of us who were really trying not to be ignorant. It encouraged me to research, and to listen. I was so busy trying to prove how not racist I was, that I didn't realize I just needed to LISTEN!

I agree there takes should be a minority of the discourse and discourse and platform should be the majority.. just like old white men should not be making laws on behalf of the health or safety of all the diverse women of the world and the common denominator is that older, powerful, white men. Poc is we’re monopolizing snd dictating things like race and gender in the first place, in a way the narrative can be that one is superior to the other... poc should be able to monopolize their own voice. However I do think this is important. The hard thing to accept sometimes is that change right now requires a lot of messed up minds to change and grow and souls to soften and people to empower those they once stepped on.. and I don’t think he was being mean or micro aggressive but brutally honest and wasn’t pretending to hide his bias or let his privileged be invalidated. He meant that growing up so close to the ugliest ways it can look, it’s real, snd it’s messed up but they can’t give up some power and even begin to surrender as equals (which no beige person alive during this time probably can fully do, just like men still can’t w women) until they do what they know means something snd takes power away. Had this been to replace the equally moving story of a poc mthat would b shitty but a black immigrant was interested in this story, and wanted to have them on his show and still was able to gatekeep them. I think he chose somebody who would fulfill a necessary evil, because right now white Ppls opinions seriously matter more and it’s horrifying and absurd, but there’s no alternative and rbis is the nature of humanity. The probability of being a highly privileged person with real power born into conditions of oppression is low. Most of us are on the other side and right now in America being poc is rlly scary and it’s messed up and unfair. But to change it we have to not be tired for poc who don’t have the luxury to just be tired, because we might be tired but some of us can’t be, and that’s real shit👩🏽‍💻

I can’t tell you what it means to watch this same person as an adult talk like this. It brings tears to my eyes and gives me hope for the children of white supremacists.

Derek Black's answer at 3:35 was so frustrating to me, no offense: "i know I'm right *now* because I believe in what doesn't hurt people, what makes life better". To the racist, equality feels like injustice, losing your privilege hurts. He appealed to perception & feeling, and i just wish he had appealed to truth; as in, "when i was a white supremacist, my beliefs were based on lies, ignorance, being in a bubble away from other cultures, inaccurate and incomplete accounts of history." Doing what doesn't hurt other's, what seems to make life better, sounds nice, except sometimes it is a zero-sum game, someone is going to have to suffer or make sacrifices in order to set things right, some tough realizations and choices will be required to make amends. So, feeling good, or not feeling hurt, won't be an accurate gauge of what is right. With all due respect. I applaud them for turning away from their former ways and risking their safety in order to advance justice. Just my humble opinion.

So i made it my mission to research my history and what i found was distrubing and powerful at the same time i found there was no reason in the world for white people to hate us and from that day forward i held my head high because i knew it wasn't our problem it was theirs
