After the death of Elijah Cummings at 68 Ibra Kendi Director of Antiracism Research at Policy Centre, American University argued it highlighted the greatest white privilege- life itself.
Kendi argues that black men have a life expectancy four years less than white men; and black women three years less then white women. He says this is proof or racism at the heart of the nation.
He goes onto argue that white supremacy is also hurting whites:
“White people are “dying of whiteness,” to use Jonathan Metzl’s term. Whiteness is concurrently a privilege and a deprivation. Racist whites are supporting Republican policies that are harming white Americans at growing rates, from loosening gun laws to protect against people of color, which are leading to white male gun-related suicides; to rebuffing life-saving and fortune-saving Affordable Care Act provisions in Republican states, so that nonwhites can’t get access. “White America’s investment,” Metzl explained, “in maintaining an imagined place atop a racial hierarchy harms the aggregate well-being of U.S. whites as a demographic group, thereby making whiteness itself a negative health indicator.” If white supremacy is a mass shooter, then it is killing us all.”
