Indeed. I’ve got a whole slew of great friends many of whom I met for the first time at a #THATCamp. \(And I’m still willing to pay cash dollars for quality remakes of the 2009 and 2010 t\-shirts; I’ve worn mine ragged\.\) https://twitter.com/foundhistory/status/1224399564666478592

Replying to @tressiemcphd

I may be totally wrong about this, but my sense is that it’s a combo of white supremacy and class anxiety. That paleness among white people is a sign you haven’t been spending enough time by the pool or on the boat. So showing off the whiteness is both dominance and self-hating.
