Posted September 11, 2019 12:17:16The phrase “white mothers” has popped up on a lot of social media in recent months.
It means a mother of a color and usually refers to the white person’s mother.
“White mother” is also used by people to describe a white person with a different race.
On social media, it’s a catchphrase used to express support for a person or group of people.
The term was coined by a white woman named Shane Persian who recently spoke at a protest against the proposed bill to legalize same-sex marriage in Ohio.
Persian said she uses the phrase because she doesn’t think she should be treated like she’s not white.
Her daughter, Malia, is one of the two white children she has with her black father.
She said she was initially shocked when her white mother asked her if she could come to her house to visit because she was not welcome.
She said her mother is proud of her.
Malia, 13, said she doesn,t think of her as “white” but rather as “the white mother” because she is white.
Persian, an English teacher and a mother who was raised in the Bronx, said that she thinks about her white daughter at all times.
I think about her when she goes to school, when she’s at home, when I’m out.
This is the first time in my life that I have been able to express that to her.
She added that she doesn t feel like a second-class citizen because she grew up in the same neighborhood as her white, American mother.
She is now studying in China and hopes to someday return to the United States.
We were born in a place called China, she said.
I think about my own mother all the time.
What does it mean?
I’m not sure.
If I can express my white motherhood, then I should be able to say it to my daughter as well.
But I think that’s just a really good question.
When I look back at the whole issue, I think there are a lot more questions that need to be asked, said Chris Rupar, a sociology professor at Ohio State University.
The word “white,” as a racial descriptor, is often used in connection with whites and their history, Rupam said.
Its used to describe people of European descent, as well as people of African descent and indigenous peoples.
In the United Kingdom, for example, “white English” is a pejorative term for a white or white British person.
