David Swift´s warning to white anti-racists everywhere - your activism may be doing more harm than good.
2021 saw the rise of anti-racism, as white people sought to be better allies to people of colour. However, well-meaning white activists have unknowingly been perpetuating the very ideas they claim to be fighting against.
NeoOrientalism is an exaggeration of racial difference, and something that many activists are unconsciously promoting. In this rousing and invaluable read, David Swift urges his fellow white activists to reflect on their behaviour, revealing how our well-meaning language and political arguments are feeding NeoOrientalism and further widening the chasm of racial inequality.
