If you’re scoring along at home on your Woke conceptual guide, white people can’t experience racism.

According to Campus Reform, Jones, who is white, wrote about the racism of the New Black Panther Party for her Nations and Nationalities class.
While the Southern Poverty Law Center says the hate group has “encouraged violence against Whites, Jews and law enforcement officers,” Harris wasn’t moved. The T.A. had some concerns about how Jones viewed racism.
Racism, Harris wrote in a response to the student, is a “systemic issue rooted power structure” which has historically oppressed non-white peoples.
