In case you needed to be reminded – Black women. You are a chair, a non human, a THING to be used as a prop for the so called “oppressed” White woman to smugly sit atop.
“All the *WOMEN* are *WHITE*
All the *BLACKS* are *MEN*”
Mosey on over to Not Your Girl Friday wordpress site and she outlines this so very eloquently. Here are a few links to get you started.
In the meantime and in between time let’s discuss……
Hold on ya’ll! I hear something in the background.
Is it a BIRD?
Is it a PLANE?
Is it SUPERMAN?
Wait, is it the sound of the CALVARY coming and consisting of:
- White feminists decrying such blatant misogynist imagery? …….(against Black women)
- Black men denouncing such blatant racist imagery?…… (against Black women)
- Sister Soldiers battle crying of such anti-Black imagery? …..(against Black women)
- The Black community marching for the support of such racist imagery? …(against its Precious Black Queens mules, workhorses, mammies)?
Then what is that sound?
OHHHHH! I’ve managed to finally make it out. It’s the sound of the one group of people _______ BW can always count on to speak out on our behalf!
Yes CRICKETS! CRICKETS CHIRPING IN THE BACKGROUND is what BW can expect when yet another PRIVLEDGED group (i.e. White women, Black males, White males, etc.) gives us the middle finger and then apologizes afterwards. LOL
Granted this story was posted on Huff post and people of all walks of life came out to denounce the pictorial. But we ALL know two things:
(1) No white woman editor of any mag would ever green light such a photo depiction if it were a White woman as the chair
(2) if this had been the SAME pic of a WHITE MAN sitting atop a plastic strapped mostly naked White woman with her legs in the air this would be all over the media and World news tonight. The White feminists would be running story after story, blog post after blog post, tweet after tweet, Facebook group after Facebook group of this ATROCITY against *WOMEN*.
But when the sentiment is “all the Women are White and all the Blacks are men” Black women get the shaft once again.
Now Let’s take a quiz. Just to keep our brains and minds refreshed of what is really going on and why Black women need to be aware and start creating our own calvaries for US.
It’s going to be multiple choice. If you get the answers right, consider yourself an enlightened BW who sees the shit for what it is. If not, keep reading my blog and other BWE blogs to gain better knowledge.
