Kirsten Powers Clarifies Her Controversial Comments

Over the weekend, far-left CNN commentator Kirsten Powers got into some hot water because she suggested that all Trump supporters were racist no matter what they may say.

However, she came out on Sunday and actually wanted us to know that she was painting with an even broader brush than we originally thought.

On Friday, Powers originally stated “They’ll say, ‘Well, I’m not racist. I just voted for him because, you know, I didn’t like Hillary Clinton. And I just want to say that that’s not–that doesn’t make you not racist. It actually makes you racist. If you support somebody who does racist things, that makes you racist. So, I want to establish that.”

“As for why white women do it, I think we have to recognize that white men are doing it as well, but I think sometimes we would hope that we would get better behavior from white women, because white women are themselves oppressed and that they would, therefore, be able to be aligned themselves with other oppressed people,” Powers said.

As we mentioned above, she took her comments even further on Sunday morning, saying that she was actually talking about “ALL white people” having racist tendencies:

“For those upset abt my comments about racism+Trump supporters, I also said that ALL white ppl (not just Trump supporters) need to examine their own racist assumptions/white privilege that are the result of living in a society that privileges white people. That includes me”, Powers tweeted.

Well, we sure are glad that Kirsten cleared that up for us. It’s not just white Trump supporters who are racist, but “ALL” white people, as she so eloquently put it.

This is not the first time Powers has weighed in on race, specifically white people.  One week before Halloween she had this to say referencing  race and cultural costumes for the holiday:

Dear white people who are upset that you can’t dress up as another race or culture for Halloween: your feelings don’t matter. The only feelings that matter are of those who feel disrespected/mocked by you appropriating their culture for entertainment.

Show some common decency.

Over the last few months, CNN has made it a habit of trashing white men and white people in general.

Last month, Don Lemon said that white men were the country’s “biggest terrorist threat”.

“We have to “realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” he said.
