I get it from all the people in undergrad who told me the best way to be an ally as a cis-het-white-male was to, in short, 'Shut up, and pay me.'

I get it from all the BLM leaders who state that white people are 'recessive genetic defects' and 'mutants' and 'sub-human' Source

I'm all for equality. I'm all for egalitarianism. To radical degrees for both causes.

HOWEVER

When you start from the assumption 'All white people are subhuman monsters who need to be done away with, you sound like a racist, not a progressive.

The extremists are in charge. The radicals are in charge. I have yet to see a 'moderate' approach to these topics taken or respected by any one in a position of power.
