"

If white American feminist theory need not deal with the differences between us, and the resulting difference in our oppressions, then how do you deal with the fact that the women who clean your houses and tend your children while you attend conferences on feminist theory are, for the most part, poor women and women of Color?

What is the theory behind racist feminism?

Anonymous said: i love the way you correct idiocy, but i mean, when you do it, you kind of backhand them with facts. don't you think that being more official (i guess is the word) an not be so bitter? i understand that these people are jackasses, but treating them like shit will just make them more resentful

You’re funny. 

Aside from the fact that we’re one of the nicer blogs out there, the bottom line is that coddling, hand-holding, and politeness do not work. Nor was that ever something that we were afforded. It also puts the oppressed back into a position of servitude. 

People do what you’re doing all the time. They will constantly try to tell us the “correct” way to talk about racism. Or try to police how we talk about oppression in general. Why? I want you to literally ask yourself. Why is that? Are we not allowed to be angry? Is our frustration too distasteful for your guilty conscious? Is our criticism only valid when we put on little kiddy gloves? When it’s palatable to you? Can you not understand why we would be frustrated? 

So if we are being upfront and even angry about all the shit we have to deal with is uncomfortable for an entitled and childish oppressor and they want to continue being ignorant and complacent, you want to blame us for that? When we’re being robbed of our humanity and objectified, disregarded, appropriated and everything else, you want us to kiss their ass while begging them to see us as people? If that’s the only way you can be an ally then you can fuck right outta here. I’m not interested in letting you feel like one.

We. Do. Not. Owe. You. Shit.

"Araminta Ross became a “slave for hire” at the age of 5. She did domestic work, field work, cared for children. She once said that one of her mistresses would savagely whip her almost every day, first thing in the AM. As a result, she would put on “all the thick clothes she could” to protect her body from the blows. When she was teenager, she stood before an overseer who was in pursuit of another slave. He took a lead weight & crashed it on her head. She was deeply wounded. She said that the blow “broke her skull.” She was carried back bleeding. She had no bed. They lay her on the floor. She was sent back to her parents who thought she would die. She survived. She went on to become Harriet Tubman. She freed slaves daringly & without fear. This is the person who [Russell Simmons] laughed at."

Blogger “Prison Culture” response to Russell Simmons parody video “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape”.

Respect Harriet’s legacy and the rebuke the attempts to make light of the sexual violence Black women experienced during slavery.
