We don’t get it. Actually, we do get it … we just don’t like it. Saira Rao made a name for herself on Twitter with blatantly racist tweets. But they were racist against whites, particularly white women, so naturally, she brokered that into a book deal with Penguin to write about how racist white women are. The next natural step is for Netflix to adapt her book into a documentary or something.
Ah, Saira Rao. Seeing the American flag makes her want to vomit. “Whiteness is terrorism.” Who was responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic? White people. White women are the greatest villains of all time. Twitter needs a “mute all white women” button. Donald Trump murdered all the people on that Ukrainian airliner shot down over Tehran by the Iranians. She talks about the friends who would have done anything for her — except give up their whiteness.
So yeah, she gets a book deal and a column in TIME.
Column: White women must do more to confront racism https://t.co/IgxCMAZ74g

Hey white women:
Being perfect is the key to your happiness, to your success, to your very existence.
Perfect hair. Perfect clothes. Perfect grades. Perfect nails. Perfect weddings. Perfect bodies. Perfect adoring and supportive wife and mother. Perfect employee and colleague.
White skin. The foundational principle of perfection in a white supremacist society like ours is rooted in whiteness. Without it, your A’s will never be straight enough, your MVP trophies not shiny enough, your flowery dresses a bit wilted. Of course, white skin alone doesn’t render you perfect, but without it, you have no chance. White skin is a necessary (yet still insufficient) ingredient of perfection. The con, of course, is there is no actual recipe for perfection, as there is no such thing as perfection.
If this is up your alley, there’s a whole book of it out there.
It’s embarrassing that Time gives a byline to a malignantly toxic racist clown like Saira Rao. https://t.co/Yrqnolz5WT

Oh, of course it’s her. Scaring up some more free publicity for her lucrative side hustle? pic.twitter.com/ZObmLyApyI

Her bio is so ironic. Is she that unaware of her own racism? pic.twitter.com/FYBplb71SI

She would have been banned from the platform already for blatant racism and bigotry if people actually took her seriously. Instead, people consider her such a joke that they basically use her work as comedic relief

I kinda feel like she should get banned under Twitter 2.0 though. Would be poetic and justified.

How many times will she write the same article picking on white women?
— William Belcher🌠 (@EdB_Ohio) December 5, 2022
She’s got to do something since her base of white women willing to pay her to lecture them on their racism still don’t want to attend indoor dinner parties.
— Shane Hensinger 🌐🇺🇦 (@CaliforniaFirst) December 5, 2022
Did they bother to state her massive conflict of interest considering she makes money by doing struggle session dinners for gullible white women?
— River Parrish (@RiverParrish1) December 5, 2022
Yep, for $2,500 you can be berated by Rao in person over dinner.
I still partially think Saira Rao is a very sophisticated LARP campaign to see how far you can be racist against white people without being banned.

Banned? She’s being celebrated as a great mind. And TIME has fallen for her grift.
