Remember when Harvard offered a printable placemat full of social justice talking points you could employ over Thanksgiving dinner with the family? Remember when Show Up for Racial Justice offered a “holiday hotline” for white folks having tough conversations with their Trump-loving relatives?
We don’t usually do posts on unverified accounts unless they’ve gone viral and the original poster knows they’re getting ratio’d and doubles down anyway. That’s the case with professional feminist Sarah Jane Glynn, who says now’s the time to prepare to confront those racist relatives you haven’t seen since the coronavirus lockdown.
Many of us are getting vaccinated and will be seeing extended family for the first time in a long time soon. There will be a desire to avoid hard conversations since you’ve missed them.
Don’t do it.
Start preparing now to call out your racist relatives. There are no excuses.

Wow. You’re kind of an asshole.

Your extended family is probably worried "lockdowns" won't give them a polite way to turn you away anymore. Hopefully they'll be able to find another excuse before they're forced to endure your toxic presence again.

I am preparing for this, Sarah. I am meditating and healing myself. I am growing larger and larger. I am becoming a being of pure white light. Upon my back are seven arms and upon each arm are seven wings and upon each wing are seven eyes. I am the ANGEL OF THE LORD, SARAH.

Guys! Good news! After cowering in my home in terror for a year, I'm ready to re-emerge and accuse my family of being racists! Huh. That's weird. They said they're not ready to hang out yet. Won't be for a long time, they say…

Do you mean you haven't written them a long letter listing their shortcomings? Or perhaps they moved and didn't leave a forwarding address…

Guessing that your relatives haven’t missed you very much—at least the ones who don’t agree with your struggle session brand of politics.
— Hammerjack (@MarcGiller) April 13, 2021
I’ve been preparing for this moment even before the Pandemic. It’s usually best just to cut off your family anyways just in case you find out they are racist later on. Better to be safe than sorry
— Josh Phillips (@Phillips24Josh) April 13, 2021
"I know this is our first time seeing each other in a year, but I really need to let you know that you're an absolutely racist prick" will surely be a great way to greet family members and friends

Is there a more insufferable group of people in society now than white, progressive feminists?
— My5HoosierGirls (@LegalBeagle78) April 13, 2021
This year I learned fighting racism was so important that it was essential to have mass gatherings during the pandemic. If you haven’t already yelled at your racist relatives close enough to exchange spittle, you, ma’am, are not doing the work.

“No excuses”. Who are you? Did someone deputize you or something?
You can go ahead and behave like a jackass at your family functions. The rest of is will try our best to have some manners and class.

White women will literally alienate themselves from their entire family for cachet within their social justice cult instead of going to therapy.

You could have literally done anything other than writing and sending this tweet, and it would have been more productive.
