The White Woman Problem - Another Important Task for Black Women



The legitimate grievances of brown and black women are no match for the accusations of a white damsel in distress.


‘Often, when I have attempted to speak to or confront a white woman about something she has said or done that has impacted me adversely, I am met with tearful denials and indignant accusations that I am hurting her’

The irony of this article  dated May 7, 2018 appearing here as a post  is that I believe it was inspired by awesomelyluvvie  article - dated April 17,  2018 -  😐 


Still, It drives home the point that unless a black woman's feelings are echoed by a woman of non-color - then those words are just another "fart in the blizzard."


Further, tears of woman of non-color are assigned as the attributes of all women especially black women. And if we don't cry at the drop of a hat then we are labeled Angry black women. Or we're not women at all, or rather we're acting like "men"...because we don't act weak.  When in reality women are not weak at all - but women of non-color just play men that way. 

 Now, they've joined the me-too movement to kick men out of their offices all the while playing victim but getting the corner offices in the process.  All I got to say is "well-played women of non-color; well-played. 😛

@Mel Hopkins: Thanks sister, just subscribed to 'awesomelyluvvie' newsletter. Yes, it does appear our sisters are spearheading a movement White woman are benefiting. Just another example of the need for Black folks to adjust our tactics in a way it will backfire when used by Whites. In a way that will expose lies rather than echo truths. 


Out of couriosity, if it were up to, say, you what name would you choose, instead of 'me-too,' and what end would you hope to accomplish?
