self-identified white antiracist activivsts perpetuate white privilege, as APOC analyses indicate, by "fetish[izing] people of color struggles" (People of Color Organize! 2011); tokenizing people of colour by asking them to join movements in order to make them more diverse (freelark 2010); expecting to be educated by people of colour on racism while reveling in white guilt (Toi 2012) and acting on behalf of people of colour without obtaining their consent (People of Color Organize! 2011).
All of this points to the fact that anarchist movements replicate the very structures of oppression they seek to contest, and that "favoritism toward whites" within social movements (Olson 2012, 50) needs to be contested... When anarchist groups are confronted by the fact that "many people of color do not feel comfortable in almost all-white spaces" (Law 2010), the reactions, as APOC literature attests to, range form discomfort and the eventual shifting of topics towards class oppression (freelark 2010); to the denial that "anything can be done about POC members feeling unsafe" (Toi 2012), or that white activists are responsible for colonialism (People of Color Organize! 2011); to even outrage at what white anarchists perceive as "divisiveness" (Olson 2012, 50) and "reverse racism" (Toi 2012) within the movement.
