What is “Hipster Racism”?


The politically correct are now officially eating their own.

A writer for Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny Letter has accused the former of “hipster racism” in a lengthy statement posted on Twitter. She also announced she’s exiting the publication.

“It is time for women of color — black women in particular — to divest from Lena Dunham,” Zinzi Clemmons tweeted, followed by a long statement in which she revealed that she has known Dunham since the two “ran in the same circles in college.” She said they had mutual acquaintances.

“Back in college, I avoided those people like the plague because of their well-known racism,” she wrote. “I’d call their strain ‘hipster racism,’ which typically uses sarcasm as a cover, and in the end, it looks a lot like gaslighting — ‘It’s just a joke. Why are you overreacting?’ is a comment response to these kinds of statements.”
