Today I want to talk about Black Feminism and the Black Feminist movement. What made me want to discuss this topic was a recent conversation I was having with a few women that kept going on and on about being Black Feminist. I was shocked when I heard this because I thought this was something that died down a long time ago. I didn’t know there were still women holding on to that ideology. What surprised me even more, were the men co-signing this stuff. C’MON men, start VALUING yourself . Stop brown-nosing with women. You don’t have to do that. Put your capes back down and get the S off ya chest. Ok, back to the feminist. The problem I have with black feminist is that they’re on the “Black men ain’t shit” rhetoric that I just can’t co sign. See a lot of these Black feminist ideologies go uncheck. I’m already hip to their game. I can spot the bullshit from a mile away. I’m going to check that shit today out of love. No hate or contempt. It’s 2012 and no Black women should be calling herself a Black Feminist. In order for Black Feminism to exist, it has to align itself with the White supremacy establishment. The ideology of Black Feminism is such bullshit that you need something to enforce it. The only thing that can enforce that is the White supremacy power structure. A lot of the ideologies of Black Feminist are the same ones you see on White supremacist websites and ideologies of the first wave of White feminist. I found that very interesting. Again that just shows you who they align themselves with. One of the main ideologies of Black Feminist is something called Black male privilege. When I asked what this was, no one had a definitive answer for me. That’s because it doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as a Black male privilege. There is nothing in this country that Black men have, that Black women don’t have; NOTHING! The whole Black male privilege is not tangible. Wait, they did say Black male privilege is the privilege for Black men to not take care of their kids. That’s bullshit! A lot of Black men want to raise their kids but they are not allowed and even if they don’t want to raise their kids, their check will get garnished. I don’t see how’s that a privilege. Another Black feminist ideology is that Black men learned how to be abusive from slavery. Since they were abused, they now turn the abuse on to Black women. This is more bullshit and that ideology came from the first wave of White feminist. Women like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton. They went around saying the same thing after Black men got the right to vote before White women did. Originally they started off as abolitionist. Basically they were on that fake liberal shit . They will fight for you when you’re on the bottom, but the minute you’re looking like you are going to be equal, the racism comes out. The first wave of White feminist didn’t care about Black women. Most of them were part of the Eugenics Movement. They wanted to actually sterilize Black women so they couldn’t have children. WHY in the world would any Black woman want to associate themselves with a group like this? I really wish Black women would do their research. Black men were not oppressing black women. That’s just a myth. That’s that Color Purple shit a lot of Black Feminist love to support. That wasn’t really happening like that. Yes you have abusive families, but that wasn’t the norm for Black men. It wasn’t then and it’s not now. Please charge this to the game. Black Feminist will also try to point out the sexism during The Civil Rights Movement and even that, they got from White women. Mary King and Casey Hayden wrote memos that talked about sexism during The Civil Rights Movement. The memo talked about how the women were just doing clerical and office work. This is telling half-truths because look at what we were going up against. Black people were getting attacked by dogs, beaten and sometimes even killed out there in the streets. The brothers naturally wanted the women to fall back. You didn’t want women in the front lines of that. That’s not sexist, that’s protecting you. I really get upset when I hear that. Let’s fast forward to 1979. Right around this time is when the “Black men ain’t shit” ideology really started. A book by Michele Wallace called Black Macho and The Myth of The Superwoman started this. She literally came out of no where. The book became a best seller and Michele was on the cover of the famous feminist magazine called Ms. Magazine. Now Ms Magazine was co-founded by feminist Gloria Steinem. Figures that a Black woman is put on the cover of a magazine when she’s throwing Black men under the bus. After this, all the anti-black men movies like The Color Purple started coming out. I just don’t like the idea of Black women saying Black men ain’t shit and trying to throw brothers under the bus. Brothers really put in a lot of work for you. Brothers didn’t let you get messed up in the game like that. The Civil Rights Movement helped you get a lot of the things you have now. The feminist movement didn’t do anything for you. I always ask Black feminist before 1964 how were your rights as a woman being violated as opposed to your rights as a black person? No one has an answer because that contradicts itself. If you say your rights were being violated as a woman that means Black men got something that you didn’t and I want to know what that is. I don’t even know any feminist groups that even support black women right now. When someone says something slick about sisters, I don’t see any feminist groups coming out to support you. When Imus called you “nappy headed hoes”, it was silent from your feminist sisterhood. Wait, the media came out and blamed rap music (another way to throw brothers under the bus). I don’t see any feminist groups coming out to support Trayvon Martin’s mom. Let me end with saying this, Black women please understand when someone is running game on you. I know you think you have a feminist sisterhood, but you do not, did not and will not. You are trying to align yourself with an organization that doesn’t have you in mind. Don’t throw Black men under the bus just for acceptance. Getting caught up in these bullshit smokescreens is just going to keep making things harder.
