Two minority women have started an event called “Race to Dinner,” for the purpose of bringing in a group of liberal white women to discuss how racist they are, as The Guardian reports.
The bizarre event costs roughly $2,500 per person, and is always hosted in a new location – the home of one of the white women in attendance. The dinners feature eight white women, including the host, and the two founders of the event: Regina Jackson, who is African-American, and Saira Rao, who is Indian-American. At the dinners, the white women gathered discuss various instances of their own alleged “microaggressions” against people of color.
Rao claims that the idea of making it a dinner setting is so that the white women will feel more obligated to stay at the table, since, as she says, “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave. But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.” There have reportedly already been 15 of these “dinners” across the country since the spring of 2019.
Rao has a documented history of racist and anti-American statements, including a Tweet in which she said “the American flag makes me sick.” In another Tweet, she claimed that Indian-Americans who disagree with her stance on race are “tokens” who display “internalized oppression” and “gaslighting.”
