Racial and Gender Equality

Patriarchy knows no gender. bell hooks no one who understands what feminism really is and the role of male privilege and misogyny would think to say or repeat such tripe.

fem·i·nism
noun \ˈfe-mə-ˌni-zəm\
: the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities….

“Feminist: A person who believes in the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.”

Coming from a people who have been treated as property and belonging to a gender that has been treated as property, black women, more that any other group SHOULD understand the importance and necessity equality more than any other group on earth.

When we don’t, we truly have to ask ourselves why?
as brother Malcolm once asked: Who taught you to hate yourself?
