We need to have a national conversation … about how annoying Saira Rao is.
She literally appears to serve no purpose other than to complain that everyone is racist, which is a lot of projection because she’s the one who’s always saying racist things. Especially about white people.
See, in Saira’s mind, white people who are friends with non-white people who don’t regularly challenge their whiteness are actually not really friends with non-white people at all. Did you get all that? If not, it’s OK. Her tweet about it is just as insane:
If you are white and your Black and brown friends are not regularly challenging your whiteness, chances are they don't trust you and are absolutely talking about your whiteness.
Just not to you.

Honest question: who would be friends with Saira Rao? We feel like people of every skin color should be able to unite in their being fed up with Saira Rao’s schtick.
I insist that all of my black and brown friends call me a colonizer every time I drink a chai tea latte.

Being friends with you sounds like a jolly, wonderful time.

That’s sarcasm, Saira. Just so you don’t think for a moment that people actually like you.
Good. If the alternative is to have my friends "regularly challenging [my] whiteness" I would rather simply not be trusted.

Some people just like hanging out without making everything an intellectual journey into racial ethics

Good. That means you’re at least somewhat normal.
Has anyone on this website penned more dunkable tweets than Rao? https://t.co/hf8s1pGOWO

If anyone has, it’s not by much. What a shame for Saira Rao that money can’t buy credibility.

So at least she’s not completely useless.
