“There is nothing absurd about North. North was the direction of freedom for the slaves. Donda West was an academic and a Christian I am sure her son was taught about African American history. I don't see why some people don't seem to be able to make the connection.”

“I would like to know why you deleted my comment regarding the inappropriate caption for "lesson 8" which describes Scarlett O'Hara's clothing making her slave, Mammy, jealous. Is this how HP Style operates when they don't agree with its audience. Cute jokes about slaves are not cute.”

“Cite your statistics. The vast majority of rapes occur within cultural groups because people live with people who look like them. During slavery White owners and oversears lived in close proximity to slaves and they had access - that is why they were able to rape them.

Please tell me where these Black men are who are running after White women raping everybody. Oh and there are lots of Blacks in Boston, including Police officers - do you stand with them too? I doubt it.”

“This first thing "Harriet " says to her "massa" in the video is "I know I don't always show that I like our special times together" as in repeated rape episodes. The guy who produced this video, Simmons, and the three actors are scum.

All Black females were potential targets from 7 year olds to 70 year olds and as long as they were owned they could be raped or murdered. Harriet Tubman spoke of being whipped by her mistress at the age of 5.

The guy hates Black women and we need to start a boycott.”

“Her name is Shanna Malcom and she plays lots of roles where she gets to denigrate Black women. She was in another skit called the Hungry Games. You know how the Hunger Games has strong Black characters who are no different than the White ones? Well in her parody all of the Black women are wide eyed, load and curse - because that is the image that self haters want to create of us.”

“You can poke fun all you want. But people know what this junk means and Simmons has damaged his brand. He will lose business over this and doors in the Black community should be closed to him over this. You can enjoy the smut all you want.”

“He took the legacy of a woman who suffered abuse her whole life but whose courage led her to save hundreds of slaves, led raids for the union army and rewrote it to have her be "allowed' to run the underground railroad because she opened her legs.

It is akin to prison camp survivors being parodied in Nazi Germany. Some things are to be respected. And if a business person cannot respect his consumers they abandon him.”

“Stop trying to derail. The issue we are discussing is WOC presence in mainstream feminism. Nothing in this issue states that men are not allies or that the goal is not equality for all.”

EqualityEd on Aug 16, 2013 at 15:41:09

“I will derail bad feminism all day long. The issue of human equality is too important to have it dominated by those out for themselves.

Men allies to feminist? No men are human beings who are allies to the greater cause of humanity. It's that common ground we put FIRST and work out are often petty differences from there.

By the way MOC should very much be in the conversation with WOC without the absurd accusations of gender privilege being thrown at a demographic of males who are among the most disadvantaged in the country.”

“Just wanted to note that over at "Women" (ha, ha, what a joke). They are currently running an article critical of the new site Bustle which was created by a man and wants to mix women's issues and some pop culture. Apparently they find this incredulous.

Bustle is currently running this interview regarding the solidarityisforwhitewomen:

http://www.bustle.com/articles/3612-qa-with-solidarityisforwhitewomen-creator-mikki-kendall

So a sight led by a man "Gasp!" can find the time to interview the creator of the hashtag and have TWO articles about it, but the ladies in pink font over at so called "Women" cannot even cross post this article.

Yup.”

“It is not just about black women it is about all women of color and it is about white women too. We need to hear each other. I hope people notice which sites are covering this issue and start boycotting the ones that are not. We need to create spaces where we can read about all women not just the rich ones.

I agree about community though. The current leaders of feminism seem only interested in corporate development and don't care about social justice.”

“if black women wait til others join them they are in trouble and nothing will get done . feminism has failed all women , more time is spent criticizing than organizing and educating  . teen pregnancy is proof of that , the high HIV stats among women is proof of that . ”

“The point is that women of color (Black, Asian, Native) are not being heard or respected in mainstream feminism. If you have a point go post it on the hashtag so it can be heard. Plently of Asian women are talking about how they are not at the table too. We should all talk about where we are failing each other as women and allies.”

EqualityEd on Aug 15, 2013 at 11:23:58

“If women of different races are allies then black and white men are also allies. If that sounds strange to you perhaps we should consider the possibility that all humanity should be allies. I think the reason why white feminist feel the need to gain the support of non white women is because they're support allows for all this intersectionality talk that is used to rationalize putting gender issues before all others. If not for the non white support white feminist would have to compete with more disadvantaged people for relevance.”

“Do you literally have no knowledge of American history? Until very recently the only positions open to Black women have been in the service industry or to work as domestics.

Because we are not men our mothers were not allowed to work in factories or construction, because we are Black they were not allowed to work in the secretarial roles that white women ascended to in the 20th century. And because they were not the daughters of wives of men in positions of power there was no way to access the power structure and create any change.

RagaMuffin, go read a book, history is interesting.”

“Yes in 1977 that put blacks in the head of the line for jobs, before that it sucked”

RagaMuffin on Aug 14, 2013 at 12:19:17

“Your comments fully support my position. Yes, they were domestics and when I last looked that was a job. Black women were hired in many profession sooner than their male counter parts. One of the primary reason for the high number of Black female head of households was because Black men were viewed as threatening and therefore unhireable. There were systemic problems in the Black community that were generally created out of racism. Unfortunately all males have the same concept about being the bread winner in the family. A woman may not view it in the same way as the male and therefore you have a ready made situation that leads to broken families.”

“Exactly, middle and lower class White women are not at the table and they don't need to lean in. They are under the table with the rest of us. When you look at what Betty Friedan was talking about and many other social justice feminists, that view point is not what you see on xo jane or jezebel or HP women. Look at the pages and what they are talking about, it has nothing to do with women and their families, it is as if families have become an illness.

Feminism was about liberating women from forced positions in society, not surgically removing them from their families and children and communities. We are part of our communities and in talking about social justice we are doing the work of feminism. But the current face of feminism is rich women talking about the issue of Sherry Sandberg not making as many millions as male CEOs.

They are out of touch, and I think this a view shared by many women of all cultures who don't find a place in mainstream "feminism".”

“I think the potential of a still born child because we are so focused on a drug free birth that we are not willing to accept medical interventions would create a greater trauma for parents.

I was induced and my children don't have Autism. There were medical reasons for it and they had nothing to do with my doctors schedule it was for the health of my child. I am really tired of the extremism of the drug free birth crowd. There are medical practices that are over used but there are also millions of living people because of the advances in western medicine.

Don't use drugs if you don't want to but also don't misinform women about inducement with faulty science.”
