Posted on 11/20/2017 11:06:01 AM PST by EdnaMode
Writer Zinzi Clemmons quit contributing to Lena Dunhams newsletter Lenny Letter after the Girls creator faced harsh criticism for defending Murray Miller, who was accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau. In her public resignation letter, Clemmons accused Dunham of hipster racism, and called on other writers of color to stop contributing to the newsletter as well.
As a result of Lena Dunhams statements, I have decided that I will no longer write for Lenny Letter, Clemmons said in a Facebook post on Saturday. For all you writers who are outraged about what she did, I encourage you to do the same. Especially women of color. She cannot have our words if she cannot respect us.
Clemmons went on to explain that she ran in the same circles as Dunham and Jemima Kirke in college, and that she stayed away from their crowd avoided those people like the plague because of their well-known racism.

I wondered too and read elsewhere it is what is considered a racist comment hidden within a sarcastic or cynical comments.
Yea. People are getting waaaaay to sensitive and touchy.
Hipster Racism = disenchanted (middle to upper middle class) white youth who mask their racism and fear of social change under the cloak of enlightened liberalism and social justice advocacy.
Man my grammar sucked in that post.
Hey, if Zinzi’s out, I’m out!
Her father was on Lost.
If he ever gets off that island there will be multiple @ss whuppings.
Lena Dunham claimed to have special knowledge that proved the incident didn't happen -- and all but called Perrineau a liar.
Either Lena was revealing something very intimate about Murray Miller, or she didn't know what she was talking about.
In either case, it was probably something she shouldn't have done.
Liberals are some of the most racist people I know...................
Not a problem. It's the first thing I understood so far today. ;-)
Its just plain old racism in skinny jeans, with a beard and thick rimmed glasses.
ROY MOORE TO THE SENATE!
I think it's something like this:
