Andd article, titled How white women use strategic tears Canberra men and white women silence women of colour, highlighted a pattern of behaviour Hamad observed when conflict occurred between white women and women of colour, where the former would use their distress to force the latter into the position of "angry brown woman", discrediting their argument and positing the white woman as the victim. Hamad Craigslist Maryborough free stuff ads that this strategy meant white women never had womn acknowledge their racism, and instead were able to continue to inhabit the role of victim, while ignoring the unique oppressions suffered by women of colour at the hands of whiteness.
The article went viral on publication, triggering numerous Canberra men and white women and claims that Hamad was "bullying an entire race of people". Its impact was so great that an African-American woman, Lisa Benson, lost her job after sharing the article on social media when a colleague accused her of racism against white women.

White Tears, Brown Scars is by no means easy reading.
The book's structure can feel chaotic, jumping from analyses of historical tropes used to stereotype and undermine women of colour, to impassioned arguments about representation in pop culture. At times the thread between the different analyses in the book are somewhat tenuous and prevent the central argument from ever feeling complete.
Hamad's insightful dissection of the role of white women in upholding white patriarchy and colonialism is highly pertinent. As she points out, the role of white women in colonial Australia as the "civilisers" of Aboriginal children was fundamental to reinforcing and legitimising the more violent oppression of Indigenous men and women through white male force.
She backs this up with numerous other examples in global history. However, the crucial flaw in Hamad's logic is the lack of a meaningful analysis of economic and class inequality within this argument.

Hamad extends her analysis to current day feminism by examining the discrepancies in the way white feminists celebrate 'wins' as always prioritising Fremantle massage nude women over the promotion and celebration of gains for women of colour. An example she uses is the way white feminists saturated the media with celebration of a white woman being cast as the new Doctor Who, while in Hamad's opinion, basically ignoring the casting of an Arab actor to the title role of Disney's live action remake of Aladdin.
She writes. But in this argument lies the ultimate flaw in Diamonds men club Robina Tears, Brown Scars - Hamad sees these two reactions as being not only directly linked, but as a zero sum game. It is not possible, within Hamad's framework, for the celebration of a woman's casting in a traditionally male role to be a win for feminism at the same time that the casting of Aladdin is a win for people of colour.
Yes, white feminists are notoriously quiet when it comes to celebrating or denouncing issues that affect women of colour, but that doesn't necessarily negate the impact that wins for white women can have for all women more broadly. The issue, as Hamad does hint, is that white feminists are quick to celebrate wins that affect them as wins for all women, but are less likely to push for outcomes that would significantly benefit women of colour, at the possible expense of white privilege.
