It is averred that anti-racism activists are using the same approach as racists. If someone from an ethnic minority group does not follow the common thinking of the rest of that particular group, they branded to be brainwashed, perpetuating the idea that minorities cannot think for themselves, and require someone to advocate for their needs, which does not allow the divergent thinking minority to think for themselves. This is reinforcing discrimination.
Anti-racism movements such as those emerging from Black Lives Matter as an organisation, does not promote unity, it goes into identity politics, which turns into a power struggle between different racial and ethnic communities. This causes conflict rather than acceptance and peace.
It is suggested that some of the assertive language used by organisations such as Black Lives Matter does not give young minorities actual agency and power. To eradicate the structural racism that exists, it inevitably needs the support of the white majority. Rather than suggesting that they should feel guilty for their ancestral past, gaining unity with the white majority to eradicate structural racism is a more constructive way forward.
