Well, as a person of color myself I feel that white folks should take on the burden of any healing of racists that needs to be done. White folks can’t offer forgiveness for racism against PoC, but they can better sympathize with some of the reasons (or excuses) for their biases. And likewise with cis folks and trans-antagonists. The marginalized already have enough suffering in our own communities to deal with.
