Those damn white people, again!


Executive Director of Idaho's Democratic Party, Sally Boynton Brown: "My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt."

So, as usual, I'm confused by this exercise in prog-speak. Ms. Brown is a white person, but reserves the right to "shut other white people down", presumably when they are, what, interrupting non-white people? Is Ms. Brown, then, an honorary non-white person? Or, to put it another way, is Ms. Brown "brown" when she's participating in a political meeting? Can she just check her white privilege at the door, like a hat or something?

Or has the DNC simply turned into an asylum run on the honor system? Maybe the whole thing is even simpler than that...

Democrats must provide “training” that focuses in part on teaching Americans “how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white,” urged the executive director of Idaho’s Democratic Party, Sally Boynton Brown, who is white.

Just to be clear, what she means white conservative Americans to be sensitive, not the white liberal Americans like her. She's already full of it.
