antareslips asked:Bashing feminists during all of this makes you sound really foolish. Nmos14 was primarily organized by a feminist. Do your research. Also realize feminism is not about being better or feeling superior. Its about equality.
1. National Moment of Silence was organized by Feminista Jones a Black feminist who has dedicated her labors on social media to combat the racist media coverage and the overwhelmingly white supremacist revisionism and lies about the assault on black life. #RememberRenisha (DREAM HAMPTON ANOTHER BLACK FEMINIST WAS THE ONE WHO STARTED THE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE FOR RENISHA) So understand that I know exactly who organized it. Black women organize when no one else does. When yung suffragettes are writing fuckshit articles on Jezebel.com, we’re organizing. Trust.
2. Black women have always had to do the labor of remembering and seeking retribution for injustices and human rights violations that occur in our communities especially when they effect Black girls and women. So I’d advice you to do some research on Fannie Lou Hammer, Ida B. Wells (who the suffragettes and 1st wave feminists actually forbade her from marching b/c they were too concerned about the racist souther white women not participating also see) and Rosa Parks and the initial inception of the Civil Rights movement which was all organized by Black women because no one (ESPECIALLY THE RACIST WHITE FEMINISTS UR APOLOGIZING FOR UP IN MY INBOX) fucking no one gave a shit about seeking retribution for Black women who were losing life and being terrorized in Jim Crow South.
3. Feminism isn’t about superiority, but I’ll tell you something. IT’S NOT ABOUT ENSURING THAT WHITE SUPREMACISTS WHO SEEK TO CONTINUE THE MARGINALIZATION AND DISGUSTING TOKENISM OF WOC COMFORTABLE. Feminism and this neoliberal “equality” fuckshit that doesn’t challenge or begin to even erode at the structures or institutions that replicate and re-enforce white supremacy, patriarchy, imperialism, classism, etc so that they can be “equals” to the current status is bullshit. AND THAT’S WHAT I WAS CALLING OUT. Everyone else seemed to understand that… So instead of rolling up in my inbox telling me how foolish I look for calling out the racist bullshit that happens under the guise of “equality”, maybe you should do some research about the fucking movement we’re a part of and the disgusting shit that they’ve pulled to silence women like me an you so that they can maintain the systems that keep them privileged.
OKAY TELL THEM ONE MO TIME!!!!!!!!
