Whiteness is an artificially constructed, racial identity designed to keep certain people in power and others out. Dismantling Whiteness is critical to dismantling racism. To effectively do this, first I must understand and accept that I am White, and no matter my socioeconomic background, gender, sexual orientation, or religion, etc., I must recognize that I have received privileges denied to people of color. Then I must give up that identity, realizing that it is designed with an unjust intention which also limits my ability to be my fully human self–unique, creative, connected, and living in peaceful community with my fellow humans of all colors and cultures. Freeing ourselves of this White identity, frees our souls to allow us to fly and be who we want to be, connected to all humanity.
