We give social justice warrior princess Saira Rao a hard time around here. You know, because of all of her bad takes on everything. But she’s only human after all, and just like us, she’s struggling with the COVID19 pandemic.
See for yourselves:
My friend in Denver was just released from the hospital with COVID. I have another friend in NYC who is on life support with COVID.
One is 45, the other 44.
They both have children.
White people decided that they loved white supremacy more than life itself.

We’ll get back to you once we finish picking our jaws up off the floor.

Is this a parody account? https://t.co/weOi4tvO8m

You’d be hard-pressed to parody Saira Rao, honestly. She’s one-of-a-kind.
That was a plot twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan. https://t.co/1QYtCZriMR

And few could have pulled it off as well as Saira.
what does this have to do with white supremacy? pic.twitter.com/gU0uHJyq4F

I’m really sorry about your friend but I don’t really see the connection to white supremacy ??

You don’t??? Clearly you’re just pretending to play dumb:
The people who dont understand what you're saying – they are just pretending to play dumb and not get it, right? They have to be.

Or maybe Saira Rao is just a genuinely dumb person.
It is pretty outrageous that no white people have died from the virus

GP Apparently wypipo engineered a virus to attack only people of color because we're racist af and want to kill off all the browns. https://t.co/OUgxwe9cOp

Even in the middle of a crisis caused by a foreign dictatorship, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like white people. https://t.co/kAixstGj8h

Saira has a Sixth Sense about these sorts of things.
That tweet is completely ridiculous.
Whose going to believe that Saira actually has friends?

Ha! Good point.

I gotta say I'm as progressive as it gets but if I found you in a tight spot I might think twice about helping, you only see me as a white devil and why should I care about you why should any decent white person
— henrythomas (@henrythomas1551) March 24, 2020
Why should any decent person, period?
Now if we can just find a cure for this kind of stupid. https://t.co/8Tmu7m0tKa

Alas. Cases like Saira’s are incurable.
