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. Accused of dividing the "sisterhood" with her Guardian article, Hamad's book White Tears Brown Scars puts her position into perspective. It is a response to her critics, a window into the colonial genesis of the gendered racism faced by women of colour, and, with her feet firmly planted in the ground. "White Tears/Brown Scars" is a stunning and thorough look at White womanhood that should be required reading for anyone who claims to be an intersectional feminist.
