he hits the nail on the head when he says no one would trade lives with him, even though he’s rich, because no matter what position you have in life as a white person, it is always better than existing while Black.
It doesn’t mean every Black person is living miserably, impoverished or destitute just because they’re Black anymore than it means every white person is rich, healthy and happy. It just means being white will always serve you better than it does to be Black in this society, no matter the intersections of oppression you face.
