Alyssa Milano decided to use her platform to weigh in on what it might be like to be a black man watching the news. That was a very, very bad idea. This savvy black woman sets her straight.
Why, oh, why do so many white, liberal women do this?!
In less than one minute, TikTok user thisissavvy rips apart the argument of the D-list actress and it’s a thing of beauty.
Here’s the transcript:
ALYSSA MILANO: For those of us who are not black men, imagine watching the news and seeing how people —
THISISSAVVY: Imagine being a black man and being told by some white lady with a microphone that you and the criminal on TV are one in the same because you look alike. Imagine being told by society that white people can be all that they can be, but you, as a black man, the content of your character is completely irrelevant. You are the color of your skin and that is all that you will ever be. Imagine being told that you can’t figure out how to vote because of the color of your skin. Socio-economics affects everyone, but apparently, you’re not as smart as the poorest white person. Lady, I don’t want to hate you. I’m a 90s kid — I grew up with you, so I know you’re very talented. I understand your heart is in the right place, but you are everything you preach against. You’re not helping. You’re making things worse. You’re causing more division, you’re causing more fear. Statistically speaking, I’m more likely to be shot and killed by my black, elderly neighbor across the street than by the cop who patrols my neighborhood. Statistically speaking, homicide by cop is very rare, but people like you find power in fear, so you keep it front-page news. You don’t have to be a white supremacist — you can be better.

Owning the lib with facts and logic. You love to see it!
I’m going to let thisissavvy’s comments speak for themselves, but as a non-white woman, I’ve got to weigh in on this phenomenon exemplified by Milano.
What Milano is doing is the classic version of “whitesplaining” which is parodied by MTV in this video…
Ok, so I really dislike the “whitesplaining” and “mansplaining” labels that leftists use, but that video does show you an imperfect glimpse of what a visible minority woman (like me) experiences pretty regularly when encountering white leftists.
For many years, I’ve been calling what Milano and other leftists do when they talk about the “struggle” of blacks and other minorities the “soft bigotry of low expectations” but I’m becoming increasingly convinced that it’s actually the “overt bigotry of no expectations.”
I have to say, as a Christian, conservative, visible minority woman, the worst people to engage with in discussions about politics are white, liberal women. Maybe it’s because the vast majority of them have a diagnosed mental health disorder, but dear Lord, they’re awful! At least that’s the case with the ones that I’ve met and interacted with on social media.
In my experience, white, liberal women like Milano are very quick to shove people into boxes based on their “identities” and judge them stereotypically. Yes, I do recognize the irony in that statement, but this happens with a frequency that is startling. I have been lectured over my political views by an older, white, liberal woman that I used to work with that she was “shocked” because she thought that I “should know better” than to support allegedly “anti-woman, anti-minority” politicians. Another woman said that I was “wasting my life” by not aspiring to middle-management in the government because I could easily get in due to “diversity quotas.” Oh, so I couldn’t get in because of my qualifications? Talk about appalling! I have met many people who simply cannot comprehend that I am not just the sum of my gender and skin color — that I have values, experiences, and the ability to reason that have led me to my conservative views. It includes the view that the liberal response to “racism” is actually more racist than the racism that they are decrying.
For example, the “racism” that many on the left talk about these days include things like “microaggressions” — inoffensive things like asking me where I’m from or what my background is. I don’t find that offensive at all. The left’s response to this? Don’t take an interest in someone you’ve just met. Actually, they’re now overtly excluding white people and segregating spaces for “safety.” It’s insane!
So many of these women rely on the “experts” like Robin D’Angelo and Ibram Kendi on how to deal with their racism by becoming self-hating, anti-white racists. They don’t know what to do when they come across someone who is of mixed-race background — like my children — and they quickly embrace the idea that people should be judged on the color of their skin rather than the content of their character. The worst part? They remove any agency of the individual based on their skin color — white people are always responsible for their bad actions, but anyone else… well, there’s some external cause that made them act that way, or it’s the system that is rigged against them.
If we want to be treated as equal, maybe, just maybe we should see each other as equal. I know that sounds radical for the woke crowd, but they really, really need to hear it.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
