wait, so is she saying young white people pretend they’re black or whatever then grow up and turn white again? 

What she means is white people have the ability to exploit the “desirable”  traits of black culture. They can twerk, wear gold chains, appropriate black culture basically. BUT at the end of the they can go back to having all the advantages of being white.

P!nk

and they can be ‘redeemed’ as that was just their wild/rebellious phase. now they’ve ‘grown up’ and ‘matured’
