While it's true that the choice of messenger can make people bristle, that's more the fault of the audience than the speaker - and it's the audience who should change, not the messenger. If a white person delivers a talk about 'toxic Asianness' and people bristle because the white speaker isn't Asian (but they would be perfectly fine with the speech had it come from an Asian speaker), that's ad hominem on part of the audience.
