When you think about the consequences of racism in America, the first image your brain conjures up probably isn’t a white person jumping off a bridge, or in front of a train, because they’re shook up from watching “12 Years a Slave.”
That isn’t the case for Fox News personality Tomi Lahren. In Tomi’s world, the sin of making white people feel bad about racism, is our nation’s greatest racial grievance. And since abolishing white guilt is her raison d’etre, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a New York Times op-ed with the provocative title, “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?,” pissed the self-described “race warrior” the F**K off.
In fact, it pissed her off so much, she decided to publicly declare that she would never apologize for being white.
I will NOT apologize for being white. https://t.co/u5yZa5lkyS

This of course led to a lot of questions. So many questions…
Like, would she reconsider if it was for a, really, REALLY good cause?
Hey, Tomi, big fan, sorry to bother you but would you by any chance be willing to apologize for being white? It’s not for me, my pawpaw is really sick and wants you to do it.

Does she even know that rule number one of White People Club is to not talk about White People Club?
She probably doesn’t even know the first rule of White People Club

Can other members of White People Club apologize on her behalf?
Can I apologise for you being white? Because, as a white person, I don’t want the rest of the world thinking that we’re sending them our best.

It turns out that several members of White People Club felt compelled to apologize on her behalf.
There are some things that make me WANT to apologize for being white. One of those is Tammy Lahren.

And the irony of this wasn’t lost on some keen-eyed observers.
Tomi Lahren refuses to apologize for being white. Which, ironically, forces white people to apologize for Tomi Lahren. https://t.co/UnA4UpAPp2

But in the end, @GabbaGabbaMeh had the best observation about Tomi Lahren’s latest campaign for racial justice.
“Hey Tomi Lahren, you need to apologize for being white!”
– No one, ever https://t.co/8b2EGAFjrc
