I'm sure you fully understand the turn of phrase in the context I used it, because I have explained it twice coherently and you expalin the context above.

Why don't you see the inherent contradiction in what you write?

A black man can understand the 'white' component of the dynamic (because it is a world wide system?!) but a white man cannot understand the 'black' component of the dynamic.

It simply makes no sense.
