White Women Can Now Go to Dinners So That They Can Be Shamed for Racism

Shelby Talcott, Daily Caller, May 29, 2019

White women around the country are invited to join private dinners where they can “bear witness” to the pain of “Black and Brown” women.

Race To Dinner is aimed at white women and was co-founded by Saira Rao after her 2018 congressional run, according to the website.

The group’s website points out that the company’s goal isn’t to make white women comfortable. Its aim is to be seen and heard by white women, whose only job is to sit during the dinner and “bear witness” to their pain, which they say white women have caused.

These dinners aren’t for people who want to feel good, learn or be an ally, and it is not for white women or about white women, the website states. White women already know everything about white supremacy, because “you and your dudes wrote the book,” the Facebook page notes. {snip}

{snip} Everyone is a part of the system, the website says, but “Black and Brown” people are “on the receiving end of white supremacy” while white women “are on the giving end.”

Race To Dinner is co-founded by Colorado resident Regina Jackson. Jackson is a self-employed real estate broker, according to her Facebook page. Her bio on the website talks about her life growing up in Chicago during the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., the Goodman, Chaney and Schwerner murders, and other violence “perpetrated on innocent people” by white people. This is why she is driven “to push for real change in America,” and why she agreed to be a co-founder, the website says.

Rao ran for Congress in 2018 and the website says that she is a racial justice activist. After she lost the primary, she tweeted that she should “give up on white people” with a link to an opinion piece that she wrote for the New York Times. She also said that she was taking her children and moving out of Colorado because of all of the racism that she was subjected to.


The group’s Facebook page writes that “white women hosts and attendees are there for one reason and one reason only: TO BEAR WITNESS TO OUR PAIN.” The intent is to “reveal the naked truth about RACISM in America and YOUR COMPLICITY as white women,” according to the group’s website.


Race To Dinner also details why white privilege is racism and how it is involved in every aspect of life:
