The Illusion of Racial Universalism

Universalism is utilized as a philosophical and racialized mental “trap” quite often.

I have white friends who call themselves individuals. Who tell me that they’ve never thought of themselves as being a part of a “white race”. Or any group. And they sometimes even ask me why black people seem to think this way, exist as some sort of group-mind? These friends have never had to think about other white people as being related to them in any way, or consider how they will be seen or considered by non-whites based upon the actions of other whites.
