Best Use of "Whitesplaining" Ever

"[Jacob Canfield] knows all about Islam and racism, [yet] he's neither from a Muslim background nor non-white. Of course neither of those are necessarily germane, but from Canfield's perspective they are...except if you're a social-justice-warrior, and all those issues about 'whitesplaining' go out the window, because you mean well or whatever, and have paid to sit in seminars where you learn to say all the stupid catchphrases that suggest to insiders you are one of them."
