That cave has seen a lot. It is in one of the most contested and venerated, violent and prayerful places in the Holy Land. According to religious tradition, Hebron is in the area where the first human, Adam, was made from the local red clay; Cain murdered Abel there; and Noach planted his vineyard on the mountain. One would think that all of these spiritual associations would ensure a respect and open-heartedness between Jews, Christians and Muslims. But, no. Instead of being a place of connection and universality, Hebron is a place that proves how unprepared humanity is to see with the eye of kinship and compassion.

No Eye Can See: a Novel of Kinship, Courage, and Faith - Book Two
I am white. As an academic, consultant and writer on white racial identity and race relations, I speak daily with other white people about the meaning of race in our lives. These conversations are critical because, by virtually every measure, racial inequality persists, and institutions continue to be overwhelmingly controlled by white people. I watch as they flail, some giving up altogether and waiting out the time, unable to sustain 60 seconds of this kind of reflection.
This inability is not benign, and it certainly is not innocent.
Suggesting that whiteness has no meaning creates an alienating — even hostile — climate for people of color working and living in predominantly white environments, and it does so in several ways. If I cannot tell you what it means to be white, I cannot understand what it means not to be white. I will be unable to bear witness to, much less affirm, an alternate racial experience. I will lack the critical thinking and skills to navigate racial tensions in constructive ways. This creates a culture in which white people assume that niceness is the answer to racial inequality and people of color are required to maintain white comfort in order to survive.
An inability to grapple with racial dynamics with any nuance or complexity is ubiquitous in younger white people who have been raised according to an ideology of colorblindness. I have been working with large tech companies whose average employees are under 30 years old. White employees are typically dumbfounded when their colleagues of color testify powerfully in these sessions to the daily slights and indignities they endure and the isolation they feel in overwhelmingly white workplaces.
This pain is especially acute for African Americans, who tend to be the least represented. While the thin veneer of a post-racial society that descended during the Obama years has been ripped away by our current political reality, most white people continue to conceptualize racism as isolated and individual acts of intentional meanness. This definition is convenient and comforting, in that it exempts so many white people from the system of white supremacy we live in and are shaped by.
It is at the root of the most common kind of white defensiveness. If racists are intentionally and openly mean, then it follows that nice people cannot be racist.
