This story is without a doubt one of those “is it true” tales that we may read in magazines at the checkout aisle.
A former Democratic congressional candidate — after losing her 2018 primary bid to a white Colorado incumbent — is so bitter that she’s actually co-founded a group where white women are invited to dinner to be virtually harassed.
in fact, Congressional loser Saira Rao has decided it is time to “give up on white people,” preferring instead to mock white woman for their “white supremacy” and their complacency towards racism.
The emotionally troubled Rao tweeted a link to an article she penned appearing in April within the New York Times entitled “Should I Give Up on White People?” Rao’s response “Short and long answer: YES.”
Her loss apparently inspired her to begin a group inviting white women to dinner and hear about white supremacy and to “bear witness” to the pain of “black and brown” woman.
Rao through her website “Race to Dinner” invites white women from around the country to empathize with women of color, while apparently beating themselves up for being white.
The irrational and self-aggrandizing website like its co-founder states, “these dinners aren’t for people who want to feel good, learn or be an ally, and it is not for white women or about white women.”
Adding, “White women already know everything about white supremacy, because, “you and your dudes wrote the book.”
The website goes on telling white women they’re racists even if they don’t think so, they contend that even if you “denounce Trump, the KKK, and Nazis,” you’re not exempt you from racism.
Everyone is a part of the system, the website says, but “Black and Brown” people are “on the receiving end of white supremacy” while white women “are on the giving end.”
In 2018 Rao a Democrat ran for Congress and lost her primary challenge to the Democrat incumbent, describing herself at the time a “racial justice activist.” This by any stretch of the imagination usually puts you at a disadvantage, attempting to unseat an incumbent from your own party and describing yourself as a “racial justice activist” candidate, which isn’t exactly a mainstream message voters even in Colorado want to hear.
After Rao lost the primary, rather than being gracious in defeat, she apparently decided to take a page out of Stacey Abrams playbook refusing to accept the will of the people, worst yet playing the victim, tweeting out that she should “give up on white people” with a link to an opinion piece that she wrote for the New York Times, adding that she’s moving out of Colorado because of all of the racism she’s experienced.
“Race to Dinner” is also co-founded by Colorado resident Regina Jackson, a self-employed real estate broker. Jackson grew up in Chicago during the turbulent ’60s and chronicles the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., and other prominent black leaders during that era for her convoluted world view of race in 2019, which actually mirrors that of another bigot Louis Farrakhan.
The disgruntled and bitter duo have actually penned a letter to white woman in their “About” section of their website, outlining what “Race to Dinner” is all about.
“Dear white women, you have caused immeasurable pain and damage to Brown and Black women. We are here to sit down with you to candidly explain how you caused this pain and damage.”
“We are not here to change anything. We are here to express the pain you have caused, white women. What you do after you leave the dinner is up to you. We don’t care about your feelings. SIT WITH THAT FOR A MINUTE. Your feelings pale in comparison to the violence you have caused Black and Brown women.”
