Here's my question about this article: if we get constantly told by these intersectional feminists that they can't choose between race + gender because both equally apply, therefore they can't be race first, isn't "where are the outraged white women?" as equally valid a question?
It's interesting how these black feminists suddenly become race-first when it's time to figure out who to call out for not protecting them or standing up for them. There is absolutely no consistency with these people
why do these people keep going to white mainstream media to blast black men in print? why do these mainstream outlets, even the so-called liberal ones, feel fine printing this stuff?
the article is so insulting and infantilizing 2 Black men. It says that black men only vote because Black women "cajole" them into it. Then says that they still don't even get that right because 13% voted for Trump. So 87% voting the so-called "right" way is still grounds to bash
So here's my quesiton: how many black men were actually in the room? And how many white women were in the room? And if race-first goes against intersectionality because black women are equally affected by race and gender, why are their white women allies not called out?
there are actually physically more of them in there to say something? does anyone have any way of finding out how many black men were actually present in the room? and if it's about black men doing more, why does the article onlty ask for more black women to get WH press jobs?
But they would never actually push for more black PEOPLE both men and women to get those jobs because it's a bourgeois professional striver class ideology. Getting more black men into the room would eat up a lot of the available white validation oxygen that could be going to BW
So to sum up, according to intersectional feminists, black women are equally defined by race and gender such that they can't choose one over the other, but when it's time to call out ppl for letting them down suddenly race is so much more important that only BM can get called out
....and the solution to BM not protecting them is to only get more Black women into the room with Trump to get abused, but not advocate for more Black men to join them in the room to do this protecting that they want them to do on their behalf. Their only supposed to do that...
....from the cheap, non-paying seats on the outside of the White House I guess on Twitter or something? We have to admit this mainstream intersectionalist ideology is not for all Black people or even for all Black women. It's just for educated ones who want to replace white women
....in white spaces via jobs and white establishnment recognition. How often do they talk about actual issues affecting a vast majority of black women? Fair, living wages, help with child-rearing and healthcare, systemic support for their unique issues?
It's just about complaining to white elites about how badly Black men treat them and why they should get the lion's share of white mommy and daddy's recognition? They only ever campaign for dead black men and the only living black women they ever advocate for are their own class
No matter how good a talk they try to talk, pop intersectionality + I'm starting to fear even the "proper" intersectionality is about strivers jettisoning the dead weight of the black community in terms of race+class that is dragging them down from better entry into white spaces
that means all living black men and all inconvenient (usually because they're poor or too loyal to black people as a whole, including black men) women. And a certain class of striving black men have seen how ascendant this class of striver black feminists are and decided to...
...hitch their wagons to them for the sake of their own careers. It's really awful how this shitty new version of race discourse has been mainstreamed.
same goes for these white women allies they value so much and never call out publicly (because they can actually hurt them professionally and have access to jobs).These white women allies will always lecture me, a black man, with statements like "um maybe listen to black women!"
...and I always ask them what do you actually ever listen to Black women about besides how terroristic Black men are? I never hear you chime in about any other black female issue besides that? And also, which black women do you listen to outside of this narrow group of strivers?
I always ask these allies to give me a list of 5 unique black woman issues besides how bad black men are and how more black women need to be hired for fancy jobs because of that. i never get an answer. it's amazing
On a related note, read this thread posted earlier today. It so relates
So I started searching and in like 2 minutes of looking I found this:
facebook.com/RealEarthquake…
Another one. I've found more examples like this than by white women so far
I'm trying to focus on Black men with a level of fame or a platform. If I was to throw in the random black men I see offended this would really last all day:
In this search so far I'm not finding a single white woman:
So in a quick search I found six black men tweeting outrage about this before I found a single white woman.
Okay, even weirder....this ridiculous data-free and outright erroneous article somehow got picked up by a SECOND major outlet. sfgate.com/news/article/W…
So here’s a picture of the press corps room. We’ve established plenty of black men were sticking up for black women on the outdid even So did he mean the black men INSIDE the room did nothing? If they were supposed to where are they? I literally see none in there.
