Note, among other points:
A second assumption about liberation is that we will be granted humanity if we can prove worthiness. If people understood us better, they would see we are “human” just as they are. As a result of this reasoning, anti-racist activist and scholarly projects often become trapped in ethnographic multiculturalism. Ironically, in order to prove our worthiness, we put ourselves in the position of being ethnographic objects so that the white subject can judge our claim of humanity.
