White women scientists: <silence>
Racist white dude: science and feminism don’t mix.
White women scientists: OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!
#WhiteFeminism TM never fails to white feminism
The talk I gave was a seminar to SUNY Albany’s women’s studies. Im other words, he knows I am a recognized expert and still feels his lack of data exceeds my expertise.
I wrote it to describe things like what happened today: a white man n physics telling me, based on his gut feeling, that his lack of data was better than all of my data.
1. Black women have nothing to offer physics
A short way of summarizing the previous tweets: white empiricism is an epistemically limiting form of anti-intellectualism that is a foundational praxis in professional science.
But consider how much time I had to spend explaining my expertise and my CV and why I felt I had to, while this one grad student was ready to just tell me I was being unfairly provocative and anti-white woman.
