Likewise Esther Saxey emphasizes dialectical identity formation as the focal point: “these stories work to construct identities. . individuals tell coming out stories, but the coming out story ‘tells’ us” (2–3). As Yong Wang puts it, “the act of coming out marks a significant phase in the formation of the homosexual subjectivity both for the individual and for the formation of gay/lesbian communities” (235). The casting of identity formation as political action is of course at the core of the impulse to confess whiteness.

In this case, coming out need not be an affi rmation or defense of identity but merely an acknowledgment of complicity. Awareness narratives reveal how the white subject’s past is implicated in racism, but in reality such a revelation is what we might call “the open secret” (Burgess 129; Sedgwick 80). Similar to the way the homosexual identity may be known but not acknowledged, so the racism of the awareness narrator is understood but not talked about publicly until the confession is made in its particulars.

Hesse’s intent is to develop a theory of narrative that transcends the composition paradigm as “story as example,” where narrative is used for the purposes of illustration of a main point or thesis.

He suggests that narrative does not contain points as much as it leads to points, the difference being crucial in understanding the rhetoric of narrative. He characterizes the textbook treatment of the rhetorical deployment of stories as follows: “stories are seen as furnishing evidence for the truth of a proposition.
