What is the "White Nonsense Roundup"?

 

The Roundup, Cedar Springs, Dallas, 2018-5

Here’s something, the tone of which is offputting.

CNN reports about a group called “White Nonsense Roundup”, story by AN Willingham, CNN, link. 

They purport to be the “white allies” of people of color.

The group has been around since 2016, and here is the Facebook page, with some reasonable links about the abuse of the white media in the past.   Their website blog has two posts. 

Mythinformed shared one of their pitches on Twitter, link

“It’s never your job.”  Frankly, I never address someone that way personally because they identify with a “group”. They are being talked down to.

But this is what “allyship” and explicit “anti-racism” mean to some people.  It is very pro-active, yet it sounds rude.
