1. Small individual bias → Large collective bias.
2. The past haunts the present, being unbiased is not enough.
3. Demand diversity near you.

As our culture progressed and became more and more willing to study racism and misogyny, and how they both operate systemically within our culture, ... the definition of “good guy” changed.

It was no longer just a public declaration that you weren’t bigoted and a lack of active oppression of women and people of color. Being a “good guy” now meant engaging in a difficult and complex process of understanding privilege, including your own privilege, acknowledging that, and understanding how racism and misogyny are created and disseminated, how much of that we’ve internalized, and how we work to end that.... Most of us are still struggling with these issues and our place within them every day.

But some people are LIVID... [They] cannot comprehend ... the idea that someone else’s narrative could be just as important, or, possibly, for even just a moment, more urgent and important, as anything but a MASSIVE injustice against them. They’ve been first in line for so long THEY NEVER EVEN KNEW THE LINE EXISTED, and they believe that being asked to wait in line like everyone else is bigotry against them. ...

They BELIEVE they’re the victims of a culture that changed behind their backs and deprived them of being the well-liked “good guy” without meeting new qualifications; ... the victims of a culture that suddenly “doesn’t care” about their issues because the issues of other groups are starting to be seen as equally important; the victims of a culture that no longer posits “white guy” as the one human in constant possession of the benefit of the doubt.

Whites can live, love, study, work, play and die in segregation and still profess that race has no meaning in their lives.

Whites have now come to view anti-White bias as a bigger societal problem than anti-Black bias.
