"The oppression/privilege dynamic and systemic racism."

The narrative goes like this: Whites are guilty of an Original Sin of Racism, which according to many pundits, is simply hardwired into us at an unconscious level.
This satisfies the white need for a Catholic form of guilt and gives us all a veritable “cross” to carry. (Gasoline and matches optional.) With this burden of the intrinsic Sin of Racism, we whites have girded our loins with the comforting, self validating notion that we are all equally guilty of a unique crime that no one else can experience. Blacks cannot be racist, since racism is privilege and power, and they have neither. Only us tragically flawed whites are capable of such a travesty.
