We apologize for all of the hot takes stacking up regarding the shooting spree at three Atlanta-area massage parlors that left eight women dead, six of them Asian-American. Police have a suspect in 21-year-old Robert Aaron Long, who told police he has what he considers a sex addiction, and if he’s guilty, we hope he fries.
Although law enforcement says the killings were not racially motivated, we’ve already had lectures on white supremacy from Liz Plank, Ibram X. Kendi, and Nikole Hannah-Jones, while Rep. Ted Lieu, Rob Reiner, and Jen Psaki have laid the blame at the feet of Donald Trump, his use of the term “Wuhan virus” obviously compelling Long to kill.
We promise we’ll stop after Twitter blue-check Saira Rao, former congressional candidate and co-author of the upcoming “White Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better.”
A white man has just assassinated eight Asians in Atlanta.
Instead of sending thoughts and prayers, white people need to dismantle the toxic whiteness that is killing us.
Whiteness is terrorism.

“Assassination” isn’t really the right word here, and it wasn’t eight Asians. But who needs facts when it’s apparent that toxic whiteness was the motivation?
Thoughts and prayers.

Re-think that last sentence because it won't help the meaningful point you are trying to get across.

For the things that get people banned and even criminalised, imagine a society thinking it stands against discrimination when it allows it from one perspective but not others.

Hey, it apparently got her a book deal with Penguin.
What a grotty little creep you are. @penguinusa do you really support racists like this?
— Macer Gifford (@macergifford) March 17, 2021
Crazy that penguin can publish a book of that title but staff are crying in the office for publishing Jordan Peterson!
Something is seriously wrong in society.
— Rampas Inhumanas (@rampas_in) March 17, 2021
No, seriously, several employees at Penguin Publishing literally cried over Jordan Peterson’s book deal.
You and the shooter have something in common

The phrase “whiteness is terrorism” is totally unhinged and is itself approaching a call to violence. This hysterical tweet also just ignores violent crime stats to make a completely false assertion because fear-mongering about whitey is literally your career

“Whiteness is terrorism.”
I’m not white, and this is absolutely ridiculous. Stop this.

Now we feel bad for writing this and publicizing her book. Some people really need to be ignored.
