All you needed to say was, "No, she did not conflate 'White' with race."
 To say "[I] did," is a very odd thing, and certainly inaccurate. I
definitely did not conflate White with race.  Why do you think that?  As
others helpfully pointed out, the context for her comments was out of
band (not on this list).  Thus she was not conflating anything.  If we
want to go in circles, sure I did conflate that she conflated.
