    Default Deconstructing anti-racism

    A popular slogan among the far right is, "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white." This comes off as a a hyperbolic stretch, at best, because anti-racists themselves don't believe that they are anti-white. But, the conspiracy theory popular among liberals is that whites everywhere driven by racism are implicitly or secretly scheming to keep non-whites at an economic/social/political disadvantage. This is "critical race theory." If believing the conspiracy theory is what it takes to be anti-racist, then the slogan is true. A popular thing for anti-racists to believe is that it is impossible for non-whites to be racist, simply because non-whites have less power than whites. Such a belief is a concession to the far right model of anti-racism.

    Consider the following three questions and tell me if you agree or disagree with it.

    Q: What do you call a black person who defends his or her own race against false attacks?
    A: Anti-racist.

    Q: What do you call a Latino who defends his or her own race against false attacks?
    A: Anti-racist.

    Q: What do you call a white person who defends his or her own race against false attacks?
    A: Racist.
