White women might think that highlighting the harm they do is just a token effort to remind them that they're white, to make sure they don't get off scot-free. They might think that their femininity means that they remain "less bad" than white men. This is not the case.

White women very specifically weaponise *their gender* to enact racist violence. White femininity, specifically, is harmful.

@garfield recommended reading for the garf-rico lurkers: they were her property, a book about white women's role in the slave economy of the southern united $nakes of Amerikkka
