Re: Feminism vs. Womanism

kresge ·
The wiki piece really should be treated as a stub because it gives a rather poor understanding of womanism as it relates to feminism, particularly in the context of Walker's text. For Walker, womanism includes feminism. She says that womanism is to feminism as purple is to lavender. Purple is the larger category to which lavender belongs. The piece also does not address the argument put forth by Patricia Hill Collins in Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of...

Here's not so much an opposing view, but a different view on how the symposium went.

Although we love our educated black folks and they have great ideas, the masses want some action. Why is Tavis Smiling? And Why are we watching?

No, Dr. Felder was not there. It was more a critique of James Cone. Dr. Cone got to the session late, so missed my paper as it was the first.

Nope! Not surprised. More like...expected. White folks have been suppporting themselves, even if one commits mass murder, since the days of the Mamuluks in Egypt.

Cherokees are Indians; Native Americans. If slave holding was good enough for the White man, it damn sure was good enough for the Natives. You Tube says we're THE NATIVES. When you go to work, your boss is your slave holder. If you don't do what he wants, he won't beat your ass or hang you up on a tree, but he'll damn sure FIRE you and you'll have to look for other employment, if you like to eat, buy soap and wash and change your drawers.
