    Description

    Called "powerful and provocative" by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, author of the New York Times best-selling How to Be an Antiracist, this explosive book of history and cultural criticism reveals how White feminism has been used as a weapon of white supremacy and patriarchy deployed against Black and Indigenous women and women of color.

    Taking us from the slave era, when White women fought in court to keep "ownership" of their slaves, through the centuries of colonialism, when they offered a soft face for brutal tactics, to the modern workplace, White Tears/Brown Scars tells a charged story of White women's active participation in campaigns of oppression. It offers a long overdue validation of the experiences of women of color. 

    Discussing subjects as varied as The Hunger Games, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the viral BBQ Becky video, and 19th-century lynchings of Mexicans in the American Southwest, Ruby Hamad undertakes a new investigation of gender and race. She shows how the division between innocent White women and racialized, sexualized women of color was created and why this division is crucial to confront. 

    Along the way, there are revelatory responses to questions like: Why are White men not troubled by sexual assault on women? (See Christine Blasey Ford.) With rigor and precision, Hamad builds a powerful argument about the legacy of white superiority that we are socialized within, a reality that we must apprehend in order to fight.

    Though provoking and Important

    This book is very well constructed and throughout the book the author draws on lots of historical resources and clearly articulated her thought process and conclusions regarding white women’s pivotal role in colonialism and upholding the patriarchy. That being said, the clear and systematic way the author laid out her ideas and sources was key in how she conveys her argument: so I was a bit surprised how in the conclusion of the book the author chooses to focus on environmental colonialism (mostly because it was really not a major point of her book thus far at all and seemed to be newly introduced in the conclusion) amongst other things, and relies mostly on conjecture and doesn’t lay out her argument with the same academic rigor that was present throughout the entire book.

    That’s not to say I disagree with most of her statements in the conclusion, it’s just that it was a stark difference from the previous 90% of the book. It was just a very jarring change to bring up topics that were at best tangentially mentioned earlier in the book and then the latter half of the conclusion is devoted to them.

    Overall it was a very good book, and the author draws on sources from the United States as well as Australia, amongst other places, and the sources from Australia were very interesting because while they mirror the colonial history of so many different parts of the world, I personally hadn’t read much of Australia’s colonial history and found them insightful. Would definitely recommend this book as a must read for anyone.

    Opened my eyes tonso much!

    I really enjoyed this. Not from the perspective of entertainment but from a perspective of how my white maleness has blinded me to so many issues experienced by racialized woman. Thank you!

    Something unique

    This book talks about history in a way that is actually interesting and different. Really appreciate hearing about real life experiences in the work place. Helped me think about not just my situation but the entire system itself. Really recommend to anyone who wants to hear about sexism, feminism & white girl tears.

    Enlightening

    This book is informative and enlightening . st times, it sounded like dissertation. No doubt some will find it as an attack on Anglo women. Stick with it. There are truths here.

    Excellent in every way!!

    This performance and book are excellent in every way. The information and lived experience shared in this novel are a must listen/know for living as a white women in our world. These are the books that should be required reading for anyone who calls themselves “woke” or “ally”. Anti racism is the work of Never stoping learning and being better. Thank you Ruby Hamad for this generosity.

    A must read for all while women

    Ruby Hamad outlines the violent history of how women have upheld and continue to uphold white supremacy. A must read for all white women. You don’t have to be a Becky or a Karen for this book to be worth your while.

    I can’t say enough good things about this book!

    5 stars. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Thoroughly researched, well written, and packs a well aimed pinch at intersectional plights through examination of our sociological systems. With this book, I had to take breaks from reading occasionally because it rang incredibly true to me. I believe every person should read and would come out a better human because of it. Please read!
