Komt een relschopper voor de rechter
22 jun. 2021 - ‘We gaan niet zoeken naar diepe sociologische oorzaken’, zei premier Rutte toen eind januari overal in Nederland avondklokrellen uitbraken. Het tuig moest keihard gestraft.

This, however, comes with guilt and discomfort, which gets processed into a monolithic and easily accessible politics of what these days is called “allyship,” which then needs to be codified and rubberstamped by the esteemed white men who know the players the best. Gregg Popovich and Steve Kerr serve as models for white allies. Underlying all this is a pressing need to understand Black people.
