This article extends the critical race literature in education by theorising the ways through which white power passes through the bodies of people of colour in higher education institutions. Using autoethnographic inquiry of our experiences as non-white academic and professional staff in two Australian universities, we examine the ways we became co-opted into reinforcing white privilege while subordinating or marginalising students of colour. Rather than complying with the white supremacist ideologies and practices of our institutions, we explore the potentials for resistance against the institutionalised racial order, recognising that writing and publishing our experiences is one approach to speaking out against white supremacy at our universities.
