A white woman Black Lives Matter protestor in Washington D.C. argued white and black police officers over privilege and racism, a viral video posted to Twitter shows. The woman accuses one of the officers of racism after he says he was going to call his black wife.
“That doesn’t mean that you’re not racist, sir. Just because you have one black friend or a black wife,” she tells the cop. “You can still be racist. It has nothing to do with your acquaintances.”

She then begins to verbally taunt the group of police as they begin walking while waving around her “drawing.” One of the black officers in the group responded to her taunts about the officers being “intimidating.”
“It’s just we’re trying to have a conversation. You have a one-track mind,” he said. “There’s no point in having a conversation anymore. You have to be able to open both sides of the story.”
The woman, who clearly asserts her belief that only white people can be “systemically” racist, ignores the black cop and refuses his attempt to continue the conversation.
“If it doesn’t fit your agenda, you don’t want to hear it,” he exclaimed.
The woman then continues her verbal assault on the white officer asking him to show pictures of his black wife and kids in order to “believe him.”
“Why would you assume that because he’s white, he can’t have a black wife?” asks another black officer in the group.
The woman responds by backing away and claiming that it’s because he’s not wearing a mask and she doesn’t “want to get COVID.” The officer then begins to talk over her exasperated yells and begins to explain where racism’s roots lie.
“America has a sin problem. The world has a sin problem ma’am. Jesus said ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me’,” the black officer said. “America and the world has a sin problem. You understand me? That’s where racism, injustice, and hate and anger and violence come from. It’s not about racism. Read the Bible.”
This isn’t the first time a white woman has abused her privilege. Here are seven other examples of times woke white women took things too far, even resorting to violence, in the name of protesting racism.
