Chad Sanders: White people are pushing me and others like me aside to alleviate their own guilt and prove that they are different from Officer Derek Chauvin, who killed George Floyd in Minneapolis, and Amy Cooper, who tried to weaponize her whiteness by calling police on Christian Cooper, a bird watcher, in Central Park.
