Documentaries on high-profile White abusers exist. A simple Google search reveals that with ease. A short list was compiled in a recent article. hiphopandpolitics.com/2019/01/05/why…
A common derail is to claim films don’t exist on White abusers. Part of this is because some Black ppl aren’t plugged into ‘mainstream’ culture to know. In their circles, it really “doesn’t exist.” They can name White abusers’ names from headlines, but little else about #MeToo.
Part of this is Black hypervisibility on social media, specifically the rabid surveillance (Blackamazon *been* telling y’all bout this) and content hyperconsumption (hey; that’s in my work) of BW online makes it seem like whatever Black women don’t* discuss “doesn’t exist.”
*except BW do discuss sexual violence and abuse from a plethora of angles and have the literal receipts in threads, articles, journal articles, panels & books. BW should be able to discuss intraracial violence without the lie that we don’t discuss interracial/structural violence.
Everyone runs around BW in circles demanding labor/hyperfocusing on whatever we discuss. That goes for many topics. The constant surveillance & hyperconsumption problem conversely coupled with willful intellectual dishonesty about our labor over time is a problem #onhere. BEEN.
Demanding BW discuss WM violence at all times when many of us are survivors of BM violence—as much violence is intraracial, across the board—means essentially demanding we center WW as victims, ignore our own trauma AND don’t hold BM accountable.

It’s violence. It’s misogynoir.
People absolutely thirst for BW’s labor but only want it directed towards whatever topics they choose as if we are non-sentient microphones that should be wielded by others as tools. Not human. Not survivors. Not people with actual choice and agency over how labor allocates.
End of the day, beyond not caring about the safety of Black girls & BW—which is societal, not only intraracial—some ppl #onhere absolutely resent the labor of BW they themselves don’t have the discipline, experience or receipts to do. Hence circling BW’s every word while angry.
Any excuse made not to pause for a mere 3 calendar days out of 365 to center Black girls & BW and trauma...by using easily disproven lies about the non-existence of discussion of other predators...is someone telling you they don’t care about Black girls and BW. Periodt.
I saw someone say the Catholic Church isn’t critiqued & that’s when I knew some of you are LIARS. Not lack of exposure. Just LYING. It’s quicker and easier to say “I hate BG/BW” than to LIE so boldly when an institution literally older than capitalism itself been critiqued 5eva.
Documentaries on the Catholic Church exist. Oh look, a whole feature film too on the abuse. I reviewed Spotlight. On my blog that’s ignored since not mainstream and White-approved. By the same ppl who’d say I don’t discuss White abusers.

You’re clowns.
People who derail the discussion on trauma and Black girls and Black women, are intellectually dishonest about labor Black women do on this topic, gaslight Black women as survivors, and worse, straight up lie? Are enemies. Not my kinfolk. Skinfolk only. Periodt. The end.
When Holtzclaw was on trial, some ppl said BW didn’t discuss it; same when Sandra Bland was murdered. When assailants are non-Black ppl STILL LIE on BW’s work. This isn’t about race of assailant. It’s about BW as targets. The behaviors & lies #onhere remain the same. Misogynoir.
And then the perverse demand on BW to discuss everyone’s trauma all the time while excluding our own + the idea of “not tweeting = don’t care” is gross. Also, public labor isn’t only form of care. And BW deserve breaks and healing. Some can’t discuss this.
When I—yes me; I know activist™️ social circles hate acknowledging this, but it is what it is—was developing the framework for “misogynoir,” along with Moya and her coinage, it involved the intraracial and interracial/structural. Not gonna ignore intraracial abuse and violence.
In our article “On misogynoir: citation, erasure, and plagiarism” we discuss how “misogynoir” conceptually came about and the labor over the years. Original link: tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…. Open: drive.google.com/file/d/1QKcVQz…
Demanding BW discuss WM violence (we already do; ya lying when you say otherwise) on your demand when many of us are survivors of BM violence—as much violence is intraracial—means demanding we center WW as victims, ignore our own trauma, AND don’t hold BM accountable. MISOGYNOIR.
& in general, everyone on this violent platform need to ask themselves why they always turn to and look for BW’s labor on such topics. Not even only abuse. It’s constant parasitism fed by hypervisibility which also functions as abuse on BW.

Why. Can’t. You. Do. Your. Own. Labor?
