He did well here in explaining why this isn't a useful way of looking at the issue of racism and systemic oppression. My condensation of it - you lose/throw away tools by arbitrarily fusing two dynamics (ie. individual racism vs. power to inflict it) rather than gaining them.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you'll be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privelege of owning yourself" - Rudyard Kipling
