Ah, yes, Shango. Black women think from a "White radical feminist framework."
And wannabe Afrocentric Black men who talk the talk about "us" while refusing to pay attention to what 50% of us have to say.
Understanding privilege isn't a concern for you unless you aren't the one with benefit.
If this was a thread about da White man, you'd be down, right?
But ignore what's said intracommunity.
So typical. That's dangerous.
"Paying attention" WORKS BOTH WAYS!
I will never apologize for my stance against white supremacy. So you are right... if this was about "Da White man," I am down.
At the same time, I know what white feminism looks like... even when it jets out of the mouth of a sista.
Black men don't enjoy any privilege in our, or any, community in this country - but white male privilege does exist in every community in and outside of the white construct. And this is the distinction I, and others, have made. But because we are talking as BLACK MEN in a voice that is somewhat unified, the Alice Walker choir raises their voices an octave higher... so maybe we would go away.
Negrospirtual asked for our observations (brothers and sisters)... and I gave mines.
End of discussion... and if you need to call that "privilege," be my guest. I aint got no time for penis envy masked as "intracommunity" discussion.
