The description of White Guilt gave a term to something I think I see on Facebook and Instagram that I didn't have a name for and have a difficult time knowing what to do with and how to feel about. I've seen posts by people who announce in public posts that they will be making all their social, business, personal decisions based on the subject of racial equity - and then detailing how they will do that. One individual posted daily examples of white privilege for about a week, pictures of herself at protests, calling loudly for her fellow humans to employ empathy, her registration confirmation page for an anti-racist online training. They aggressively and frequently announce their "anti-racism" stances in posts and on their pages where it doesn't look like anyone is disagreeing with them.
I am so torn on whether I'm seeing a good thing or not. Is this aggressive ally-ship that is helpful to anti-racism, or is this their ego virtue signaling? Is my being torn an example of conditioning not to "rock the boat" and being too afraid to speak up when i should be doing exactly what these people are doing?
