Sorry, but you are beating your head against a brick wall. These people know full well what they have done and continue to do to us but have simply chosen to not care but continue to exploit and reap the benefits of “white skin privilege” and white supremacy. They know by now that black people have been exploited for their benefit and they refuse to stop receiving those benefits. That’s the key: it’s material, financial, economic. The political and cultural stuff is only cover for their continued hegemony over all things material.

So, I’d advise you to stop “whitesplaining” — explaining white people to white people. It’s a waste of time and energy. They already know and have always known what they are doing is and always has been wrong. And they will not stop until they are forced to stop.
