What would white people be, if white supremacy is overthrown?

Thanks, Kevin Pennant, for engaging so thoughtfully with the various ideas in the Stop Microvalidating post. In the #WhiteNonsenseRoundup group there’s been a discussion of “appropriate whiteness” making sense only in the context of white supremacy, as well as some conversation about new words.

For now, white is the most accurate identity label, not so much false (after hundreds of years of political, social and economic institutions) as unacknowledged. Before we can evolve into something else, white Americans have to grapple with what we’ve become.
