PSA: If you ever read a post about Women and their struggles, and you get the impulse to amend it to address […fill in the blank with your favorite nonsense Racial category, skin tone, sexual orientation, wage scale, power/privilege metrics of your own devising…etc….
Oh, I get it, old man wants to be hand held and have someone explain every little thing.
Jesus, get a life. If you don’t get it or don’t agree shut up.
The point is: Black Women live under unique circumstances. The oppressions Black Women face are NOT fair game for everyone else to just pick and tease apart until they find something that they want to use.
In fact, my statement was a DIRECT response to that legacy and that perpetual scavenging being performed upon the bodies, lives, and works of Black Women.
So, I reiterate:
Look upon what you have wrought, Academia! Who wants to hold a “Pride” parade?
what the fuck are you even reacting to?
like, nothing you say makes any fucking sense, at all.
You’re basic assertion is that somehow putting the spotlight on Black Women and not allowing people to take that (y’know, like you’re doing with your little tantrum here) is a bad thing. Furthermore, you’re saying that it somehow benefits academia and the economic elite of this country.
Which…how? In what universe is that true? Show me the world where Black Women’s primacy is the same as supporting or working in favor of the oppressor class.
Listen to what you’re saying right now. You’re the only one in a “race to the bottom” as you call it. You’re the only one trying to prove (against almost every quantitative and qualitative measure) that Black Women don’t deserve to have their concerns treated as unique.
No one is stopping you or anyone else from making your own post to highlight how different peoples’ struggles have been coopted.
The fact that you came onto my post to make what you somehow view as a brave stand is just…
You’re literally proving the need for my original statement.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully derailed a post about Black Women into one about (presumably) white men and their feelings.
Good for you, really stirring the pot of revolution.
Let me applaud your bravery and courage for standing up to all those oppressive Black Women and the people that support and value them for surviving in a patriarchal, white supremacist world.
