White women fake crying video trend sparks outrage in Black community

A recent LA social media “trend” in which white women pretend to cry has sparked tremendous outrage online.

Earlier this month, a group of white women in Los Angeles began sharing videos in which they pretended to cry before suddenly stopping and smiling. Though they perceived it at first as an “acting challenge” the “trend” has subsequently sparked a bigger conversation about white women’s history of using their victimhood against Black people.

All of the wailings were lambasted for their blatant disdain for the many Black people who have been subjected to violence as a result of these “crocodile tears” from criticism about its tone-deafness to posts about Emmett Till’s murder.

Los Angeles has been also been in a sensitive racial space lately and many people found it appalling that this is where such a nasty trend could develop.

One individual tweeted, “White women have historically used their tears and their false victimhood to accuse and vilify people of color, particularly those from the Black community,” “This ‘trend’ demonstrates the capacity to deceive others and influence their emotions. This has a tumultuous past…”

Another added: "White women have historically used their tears and their false victimhood to accuse and vilify people of color, particularly those from the Black community. This "trend" is showing the ability to falsify emotions and manipulate others. This has a dangerous history..."

Others, such as activist Imani Barbarin, have written that “This ‘trend’ is really unsettling. It’s more of a menace,” another user said, adding that the “trend’s” popularity was proof that white women didn’t understand why “a lot of Black people are more afraid of them than anyone else.”

Whenever she deals with anyone who appears to be a white woman, a third individual wrote. It’s always terrifying for her because she’s well aware of the massive power disparity. She claims that it is very simple for them to cry or become unhappy and that people will nearly always support them. Because of their privileged position.

Nonetheless, a few others went on to remark that post was just another “telling on themselves now,” way for white women to “unprovoked.”

“Unpopular opinion, but I love to see white women giving one another a global platform to tell on themselves,” one person said. “Archive these videos and pull them out when a white woman tries to weaponize her tears.”
