How many times have #WhiteWomanTears - whether they be literal tears or just dry proverbial ones - showed up to rest, rule & abide in Black wmn's lives?

I've decided to share one of countless experiences with u. With email receipts. [thread] These tears taste like oppression...
My supervising professor is a White Wmn. In countless private meetings w her, she would snap at me, even slam her laptop shut in response to me simply asking a question to better understand what she wanted me to do. Apparently, asking a White Woman teacher to teach is tew much.
I endured this treatment from her for over a year, usually responding by not responding at all. Just quietly saying "okay", looking down, and generally trying to appease the beast.

Until one day she went there. IN A LAB MEETING. IN FRONT OF MY PEERS.
