I agree. My opening could have been a little less accusatory. I’ll apologize for that. I should hope people will contribute to the discussion anyway because we’re sharing things we’re unable to speak about typically. People have different reasons for living among certain groups. Some Brown folks purposely choose Whiteness because of the benefits that come with it. This is a different topic (kind of) I believe. I’ve been thinking of this and how it impacts us ( i.e. K-12 public school vs private schools and racially segregated communities).

It’s complex, but we cannot deny how Whiteness has constructed our caste system and social order(s). How they treat us dictates how we non-Whites treat other. They are the lead.
