Chloé S. Valdary Stands Up To Anne Hathaway After She Attacked ‘White Privilege’

Three days ago, Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway posted a picture of Nia Wilson a black 18-year-old, who was murdered last weekend at a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in Oakland, California on Instagram. Hathaway condemned ‘inaction’ of white Americans, and wrote:

“The murder of Nia Wilson- may she rest in the power and peace she was denied here- is unspeakable AND MUST NOT be met with silence. She is not a hash tag; she was a black woman and she was murdered in cold blood by a white man.

White people- including me, including you- must take into the marrow of our privileged bones the truth that ALL black people fear for their lives DAILY in America and have done so for GENERATIONS. White people DO NOT have equivalence for this fear of violence. Given those givens, we must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really? Not in our intent, but in our actions? In our lack of action? Peace and prayers and JUSTICE for Nia and the Wilson family xx”

But now, Cholé S. Valdary, a speaker, thinker and writer for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic tweeted this in response:

“*reads somewhere that Anne Hathaway claimed that I (and other black people) fear for my life daily*
This white savior complex has got to stop guys please stop please please make it stop.”

In the following tweet, she added: “And by claiming otherwise, you’re redefining blackness as fearful, terrified, afraid etc. This is bullshit. It is not empowerment. IT IS THE DEFINITION OF DISENFRANCHISEMENT TO SUGGEST THAT BEING BLACK = BEING AFRAID. Cut this foolishness out.”

Great response from Chloe S.Valdary. It is not the white savior complex it is pure and unmitigated ignorance. Hathaway’s comment was stupid. But….and it’s a big but, she was only repeating what so many black “leaders” say daily.

But after all Chloe, how do you propose Hollywood-types prove how un-racist they are if they aren’t constantly telling you how bad your life is?

What do you think?
