Racism in the Feminist Movement Now And Historically
what I wanted to bring up that rarely discussed and has to be is what the title says. Ppl still dont realize that most feminists period are white, most women of color who u know concious are more likely to be for example pro-blacc. And this oen thing that overlooked for example historically when it came to women's suffrage.
White men were generally the most active opponents while men of color wanted it because they guessed and correctly that unlike white women who tended to be more progressive and vote against white men on a lot of things and rightly so women of color voted for the same shit as men of color cuz we in same shit together.
And for example one thing I see is a lot of women of color looked down upon by white women for some of their choices that white women believe are not right. Like havin kids instead of an abortion, or staying at home and havin ur man work. I aint gonna comment on that personally cuz Idk personal tip about that cuz ima man but I seen shit n I talked to women n they say the same shit. Like how they'd sooner be in a community meeting concerning shit as a ppl then for a women only tip kind of.
And a lot of the early feminists were vocal racists and very open about it was were early leftists but that another topic. And the reason I started this thread is that this issue gets looked over almost always because ppl forget aint really none of us in the movement (dont mean literally there proly bare women in it just my ignorance but im talkin a general trend thing).
Wanna ask u know like where do u think are some places sexism and racism overlap, where do they not, which do you think affects you more (same or dont know is an answer), if you know how would you say for example the relationship and communicatio between men and women of color vs white men and women is different (I know examples but ima hold out). And u know generally anything like if u been to a feminist meeting as a african women and gotten fucced cuz it was all white ppl.
If u cant answer some of the questions dont still (yall know what I mean by that lol)
