I 'identify' as a black fella for the purposes of this proposal therefore nullifying any consequence upon my sorry white ass.
Yeah go say that in public instead of on the keyboard and see how far it gets you.
UPDATE (2/27): We have reached out to the author of this article. They have confirmed that if you were born white, but identify as a different race or otherkin, you would be void from paying the Equality Tax. You would just have to submit proof that this transformation is genuine.
This new tax initiative must account for several demographic factors in order to be the fairest, and most effective. The following could represent a potential tax breakdown based on these demographics factors:
Single Heterosexual Caucasian Males
Equality Tax: 5%
Single Heterosexual Caucasian Females
Equality Tax: 4.5%
Married Heterosexual Caucasian Family
Equality Tax: 4%
Equality Tax: 3%
This is a very simple template, and I concede that it could be much more robust.
The Inevitable Backlash
With the republicans in power and the rise of the alt-right, this new tax initiative is sure to enrage the privileged. But we must not back down. We must continue to voice our opinion, especially in this racist, misogynistic environment post-Trump.
They must understand that their economic success was only made possible by the blood and sweat of minorities.

Totally in favor of this. Segregate tax receipts by race. Transfer that 5% to minorities, white people get to keep the rest of their taxes to improve their lot. minorities fund themselves through taxes plus the 5% they get from whites.
Let's make this happen folks
