"The system of white supremacy was not created by anyone who is alive today. But it is maintained and upheld by everyone who holds white privilege - whether or not you want it or agree with it"
- Layla Saad (Me and White Supremacy)
"While the racist status quo is comfortable for me virtually 24-7 as a white person, challenging the status quo is not. Building the racial stamina required to challenge the racist status quo is thus a critical part of our work as white people."
- Robin Diangelo, author of White Fragility
(from the foreword to Layla Saad's 'Me and White Supremacy')
