Abstract:
When white people cry foul it is often people of colour who suffer. White tears have a potency that silences racial minorities. White Tears/Brown Scars blows open the inconvenient truth that when it comes to race, white entitlement is too often masked by victimhood. Never is this more obvious than the dealings between women of colour and white women. What happens when racism and sexism collide? The author examines Black, Indigenous and Arab feminisms to show how white distress has been weaponised against women of colour and traces histories from Rhodesia to slave-era United States, including the ‘BBQ Becky’ incident.
