But if you haven’t, let me explain: In a video posted to Twitter, a white woman calls the cops on a Black bird-watcher after he asks her to leash her unleashed dog in Central Park, which mandates it.
The sentiment I saw over and over again was that many white women were alarmed that I had called on them to fight for the issue of racial equality as hard as they fight for gender equality.
To be a white woman in American society is to benefit from the white supremacy that is enmeshed in every part of a country that was created off the backs of enslaved Black people.
It also ignores the way that the protection of white womanhood has been used to justify the slaughtering of Black men .
So my message to white women is simple: The way to alleviate your guilt is not to pretend it doesn’t exist.
