  • While some people of color have chosen to educate others on what racism looks like and how to fight it, not all people of color should be expected to. Writer and consultant Robin DiAngelo argues that the onus is on white people to seek the information being offered, not to try and extract it.
  • As a white person, DiAngelo acknowledges that her voice “cannot be the only voice” and that voices of color are necessary to reach understanding.
