1. You speak authoritatively about racism and race issues knowing full well that you have never read or studied anything written by and about people of color on your own. You know virtually nothing about Africa, Asia, or the Americas (pre-1492), except what people just as ignorant as you have told you, and you have have probably never truly thought seriously about why it is that the places where White people come from and inhabit are rich while the rest of the world is poor.
2. You say all of the politically correct things about racism e.g. "white privilege is wrong" and "there's no diversity here", but you secretly feel that the hardships you experience as a privileged person (white or not) are just as difficult as those experienced by people of color due to everyday racism. In fact, you actually feel that your hardships are worse.
3. Whenever people of color speak against racism you find it difficult to unite with their analysis unless they say something that validates and recognizes your humanity as a privileged person (white or not).
4. Whenever a question comes up about racism, it never occurs to you to seek out the opinion of those countless and qualified activists of color, living and dead, who have been providing solutions to these problems for centuries.
5. You simply are incapable of understanding how the concept of American identity is racist, no matter how you try to rationalize or justify it.
6. You study philosophy, ideology, and history, but you can't point to one philosopher of color, who presents an analysis stemming from their culture, that you have studied and/or have any understanding of, unless that person was endorsed by somebody white.
7. You are not doing everything you possibly can to support independent organizations from communities of color, because their agenda is different than what you think it should be. Or, you constantly try to get those organizations to address the issues you think they should address while ignoring and dismissing their agenda.
8. You immediately denounce any person of color who dares to suggest that revolution (yes violence) is an alternative, but at the same time, you either support, or at least accept, that the amerikkkan government engages in violence as policy and you never challenge your friends and family who are in the military "because it's just not worth it."
9. It has never occurred to you that white people raise their children to believe the world centers around them, which contributes to their children growing up and becoming self centered, narrow minded, and racist, while children of color, due to the dangers inherit in their existence, can never have the luxury of being raised that way. As a result, they are always at a psychological disadvantage to accompany overwhelming political and economic disadvantages.
10. You question the perspectives of seasoned and conscious people of color when they detect racism within an experience you have together and you expect them to validate their concern to you in two minutes, and if they cannot do it, that in your mind invalidates their assertion.
