A confronting reality check for the privileged position of the white woman.

When white people cry foul it is often people of colour who suffer. White tears have a potency that silences racial minorities. White Tears/Brown Scars blows open the inconvenient truth that when it comes to race, white entitlement is too often masked by victimhood. Never is this more obvious than the dealings between women of colour and white women.

What happens when racism and sexism collide? Ruby Hamad provides some confronting answers.
