Not just a look - I'm having to block otherwise professional (white) women on LinkedIn for putting this exact sentiment in writing on the Internet. I didn't connect and "make friends" with them only to become their new token black friend pretending to be invisible while they complain about antiracist content clogging their feed! I used to respond, but now I just block. And I'm a lot more scrutinous (wd?) of (white) people (of all genders) suddenly wanting to be virtual besties.
