    No, but the fact is that the suffering of minorities should not be ignored in favour of the much lesser suffering of white women, which the media pays a lot more attention to.
    Agreed. White women must pay for the undue protection they have received to the expense of minorities. Feminism was a conspiracy invented to protect White privilege for White women by offering White men as a sacrifice. This must not be allowed.

    It's both, and a product of recent horseshoed racism whereby some people now think racism against white people is warranted by virtue of their alleged privilege. It's entirely backwards and to the contrary of dissolving prejudice.
    Saying that white women have no suffering is not racist, it doesn't show any dislike or prejudice. It's ignorant but nothing more

    Of course it shows prejudice - no one can be ignorant of the fact that there are white women who exist and suffer nor was the comment made in that vein. The judgement was that all white women do not suffer since they are too privileged to do so. She knows very well this isn't true since all sentient beings suffer, including wild animals, and many white women have and do endure miserable lives full of suffering. To disregard one type of being's suffering simply by virtue of their being white is, by definition, racist. It was not only meant as purposely derogatory in itself but it is also to imply a whole host of negative characteristics about white women on average.

    In my opinion it shows that the poster is ignorant of suffering rather than simply disregarding one group's suffering. You could just easily argue it was also a sexist comment

    It's impossible for her to be ignorant of the fact that at least one white woman in the world suffers. She was precisely "disregarding one group's suffering" - that is the literal description of her sentence that "There is no suffering of white women."

    It isn't impossible, people believe some ridiculous things; 'white women don't suffer' doesn't actually seem that crazy. Clearly we differ on interpretation

    Unemployment? Woman of child bearing age seeking employment? Financial hardship? Domestic violence? Rape? Still think it "isn't crazy"?

    By comparison to some of the things people believe (omnipresent spirit in the sky, 9/11 conspiracies, etc.) it's not that crazy
