Answer:

It’s revealing to say that there is nothing that the white man knows and won’t tell.

White men are like a cloud. “We” look like we have substance and cohesion, but it’s really wispy and insubstantial. “Race” is a matter of happenstance, and when you’re the majority, that happenstance looks like nothing. When you’re not the majority, it looks like a conspiracy. At the end of it all, white people are like anyone else; we’ll turn against each other just as easily as turn against another group.
