    the white people who choose not to figure it out.

     IMHO its a problem with White People not being able to get others in their own culture to do the right thing, same as people in the Black and other minority communities that will insist that the same-race violence in their communities can be solved by white people or some larger group doing something more/different or trying harder for their community, while that community can sit and change nothing in essence. Alot of black people know right where the problem people live and do their thing in their community(its not the white cops), alot of white people know EXACTLY who it is fucking things up and making white American culture look bad(its not the black president).

     Sometimes you have something "your group" needs to hear, but maybe you don't want to be the man/woman to say "hey those people are right and we are wrong". Well, an outsider  or a larger group is not going to be your savior and tell it to them, and be more effective. Seems to me this post is about making progress more palatable to those mired in nostalgia because that's where those people want to stay, and there are other whites who back up that thinking. White progressives need to do a better job convincing white people to embrace change, while apparently allowing them to have their "fence/shield" too. Or just wait for the demographics to do the job in a much less white controlled way. Good Luck.
