His article, titled "Three New Year’s Resolutions For White America," detailed what he is working towards in the new year.

To this end, all white people need to understand that they are, at least, a little racist against people of color.
"Resolution #2: We resolve to realize that all White people are participating in racism," he writes, saying that people born a certain race automatically have a specific attribute.
"That’s right, I said all. Sorry to burst your bubble, White lady wearing an “Assata Taught Me” t-shirt," Mr. Cohen explains. "The majority of our people sided with the Ku Klux Klan to elect an overt bigot as president... All of us are on the racism spectrum until further notice."
Mr. Cohen's third resolution is to "resolve to organize our people around anti-racist ideas."
He writes, "For centuries, being White in America meant reaping unearned power and advantages, relative to people who are not White. America’s power structure, to an almost comical degree, still reflects that version of Whiteness."
Mr. Cohen concludes, "Anti-racist White people must continue to make racism unacceptable, otherwise the White supremacist vision will continue to build power. And win."
