TikTok Teaches Etiquette: Whites Must Get Nonwhite Permission to Hang out — 'White Shenanigans' Are Brutal

(Joerg Carstensen/dpa via AP)

All you party people will be interested in a social update. Before inviting any guest to a gathering, consider an online directive.

A video from a young girl shared by Twitter’s Libs of TikTok bears a modern message for America: If you’re not white, you have no right to just invite whoever you want to a get-together.


The problem stems from the fact that your would-be guest could be Caucasian. In that case, progressively press Pause:

“[I]f you have a token white and you’re hanging out with your friend group of color, you need to ask permission from everybody in the group to bring your white friend. Like, don’t just bring them. Ask for explicit permission from everyone. Because just because you’re comfortable with them doesn’t mean that everybody’s comfortable with them.”

TikTok is a window into America’s youth, and the message of consideration to others appears ubiquitous. Each generation has its own sensibilities, and our institutions have recently sown seeds quite different than the unifying ideas of decades past.

A few cases in point:

For Lent, a Chicago Church is ‘Fasting From Whiteness’

College Op-Ed Asks if White People Should Be Kicked out of Parties

Tennessee University Hails the Absence of White People as ‘Magical’

Mental Health Journal’s Article on ‘Parasitic Whiteness’ Laments There’s ‘Not Yet a Permanent Cure’

‘Exhausted’ and Trauma-Torn TikTok Teacher Tells White People to Stop Making the World Unsafe

Yale Medical School Welcomes Psychiatrist Who Dreams of ‘Unloading a Revolver Into the Head of Any White Person’


As for being “exhausted,” the TikToker evidently relates:

“I might not be in the mood to deal with white shenanigans that day. That’s all I’m saying.”

She adds “another thing” — white people must be prevented from getting more uppity:

“[Freely inviting them to events] feeds into their ego. Like, don’t let them think they’re a good white person. Don’t give them that card to use against other people. Please don’t do that.”

TikTok confirms where we are. Where are we headed? That remains to be seen. But if racial unity is up ahead, there are clearly still many miles to go.
