Stop Begging for Inclusion!

Black women/feminist can start from the premise our needs and issues remain different from those of White women/feminist. Black males and females are still fighting for our human rights. Each morning we awaken to a society which questions our humanity and existence.

Historically, when White feminist ran off to meetings, Black women and women of color (the help ) cared for their children. We were never invited to the table, nor were we asked our opinions nor treated as equals. The Feminist movement has always been told from the perspective of White feminist. Today the feminist being spoken off are the same descendants of earlier feminist. Persons with the identical racist, cultural, social and political prejudices. Persons sharing the same elitist attitudes and behaviors as their ancestors. Why is this surprising? Why is valuable time wasted on these women? We as Black women and women of color don’t need their approval! Time should be spent creating
our own platforms to address our issues. We don’t need them in order to speak! Coalitions are fine as far as coalition go. However, why waste time with the ignorant and psychotic?

Our needs and issues continue to be fodder for debate, by those who like their ancestors believe they know what’s best for us. Persons attempting to drown out our voices and silence us. Persons wanting the pedestal, entitlement and white privilege.

They like their counterparts always manage to find some desperate individuals looking for massas acceptance. Trotting out these Blacks when Black face is needed. The only purpose to give the movement color and a contrived faux appearance of equality and unity. Do for self! This is the big lesson. Free yourself from the noose at your throat!
