exoticwhitegirls:

Gordon argues that the racist supposition is that the white perspective is neutral, universal, and raceless, while “the others” are ethnically structured and attached to particular social groups with shared characteristics for instance culture, ethnicity, and traditions. In his treatment of the concept of bad faith, Gordon interprets the idea of bad faith as a flight from a “displeasing truth” to a “pleasing falsehood” (Bad faith of whiteness, page. 8).
