    This

    The act of a caucasian person explaining to audiences of color the true nature of racism; a caucasian person explaining sociopolitical events and/or history to audiences of color as though they are ignorant children; a caucasian person explaining to audiences of color that what they think will benefit themselves and their families and communities will in fact harm them, and vice versa.
    U.S. Senator Rand Paul whitesplained to students at Howard University that a black Republican founded the NAACP.

    "'We know our history,' Hay said of Paul's question. 'This is now; that was in the past.'"

    This better be good. Because it is not going away.

      The act of a caucasian person trying to avoid acknowledging the problem of white privilege.

      The act of a caucasian Republicans (like our friend Rand Paul) trying to avoid acknowledging that they have won quite a few elections by appealing to the fears of racist white voters. A few notable examples of the successful application this GOP political strategy would be the election of Richard Nixon in 1968, and of course the so-called "Reagan Revolution" of 1980.

      "For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die." --Senator Ted Kennedy
