A young black activist who write for the Huffington Post has coined a new racial slur – ‘whitesplaining’. Some believe her term is a racial slur condemning whites with opinions of sharing those opinions when black Americans don’t want to hear them. If this activist was white and said the same thing about blacks, there would be a huge backlash from the black community, but few in the white community are reacting to her racial slur.
“Mansplaining” was so 2016. Half way through 2017, the Huffington Post is peddling a new complaint to add to the American lexicon: “Whitesplaining.”
HuffPo’s “social justice blogger,” Jade Greear, explains this new offense.
“Have you ever had an experience where someone is explaining to you, in a patronizing way, something you actually already know quite a lot about?” she asks. “Possibly about your own life experiences as an African American or Latino? That is whitesplaining—to explain or comment on something in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner, from the perspective of the group one identifies with, thereby clearly exhibiting their own bias.”
Greear says that while “whitesplaining” can be well-intentioned, it is inherently subjective. It perpetuates racism, she argues, precisely because “racism is not subjective.” …
This post filled with racial hatred and intolerance is evidence of the liberalism that prevails in the Huffington Post and among black activists. It also demonstrates the racial divide in America and the double standard that exists where black Americans can say anything they want and it’s not racial, but if a white even hints at anything, they are accused of being racist bigots. It’s time that this changes.
