Fat Activist Your Fat Friend - Whiteness, division and police violence (Part One)

Who Hurt You?

By Sofie Hagen

Fat Activist Your Fat Friend - Whiteness, division and police violence (Part One)

Wednesday, 3 June

In Part 1 of a two part conversation Sofie talks to Your Fat Friend about whiteness. It’s an uncomfortable and flawed conversation because it’s two white people talking about whiteness but, in the face of global systemic white supremacy and police violence, it seems an important conversation to have. 

Trigger warning – coronavirus, racism, white supremacy, violence, murder, slavery, misgendering, mental health issues
