White people have always been particularly susceptible to retreating into a mythological past, and we are seeing the results of decades of this today. I expect this retreat into nostalgic delusion to get worst, as they realize there’s nothing they can do to stop it. As they have less and less power over marginalized people, and their numbers dwindle, I expect their views and opinions to become more, and more, extreme and blatant. I think they will begin just openly talking about the extermination of Black and Brown people. We need to be ready for that.
