Is there anything worse than feminist victimhood? Yes, there is, and that is black feminist victimhood, exemplified in the civil war occurring right now between feminists heading to D.C. to protest as part of the Women’s March on Washington.
It appears that ShiShi Rose, a 27-year-old blogger from Brooklyn decided to lecture others that were planning to attend the Women’s March on Washington, specifically white people, telling them in an Instagram post:
For some people, their outlook of this country deeply changed on November 9th. For the rest of us, this is how it has always looked.
I want to remind you that that is a privilege.
It's a privilege that white supremacy wasn't at the forefront of your reality, because you benefit from it.
I want to remind you that no ally ever got very far, in any movement, without acknowledgement of their own privilege daily. You do not just get to join the efforts that people of color have been working for their entire lives to both teach and survive, without doing work, too.
You don't just get to join because now you're scared, too. I was born scared.
Now is the time for you to be listening more, talking less, spend time observing, taking in media and art created by people of color, researching, and unlearning the things you have been taught about this country. You should be reading our books and understanding the roots of racism and white supremacy. Listening to our speeches. You should be drowning yourselves in our poetry. Now is the time that you should be exposed to more than just the horrors of this country, but also the beauty that has always existed within communities of color. Beauty that was covered over because the need to see white faces depicted was more important.
Now is the time to teach your children, to call out your family, to finally speak up. You have been silent for long enough. Now is the time to realize that you should have joined us sooner. But since you're here now, it's time to get to work. #WhyIMarch
MISSING THE REAL PROBLEM
I almost don't know where to start with this screed, so I'll begin with the portion that seems to making headlines, although I think the focus should be on the perpetual offense and victimhood mindset that seems to be so prevalent in snowflakes and cupcakes today, which I will get into afterwards.
Evidently a South Carolina wedding minister, Jennifer Willis, was offended by Rose's screed, "The last thing that is going to make me endeared to you, to know you and love you more, is if you are sitting there wagging your finger at me," to which Rose responded to the NYT's article with "I needed them to understand that they don’t just get to join the march and not check their privilege constantly."
So basically what we have is a group of "feminist" snowflakes, planning to march in Washington for female equal rights because they all feel their are "victims, now infighting because a black racist (Rose) decided to lecture people she has never met to let them know that because they were born white, therefore they were born racist, and those white feminists should sit down and shut up because the black feminist was "born" a victim.
THE REAL PROBLEM - SNOWFLAKE AND VICTIMHOOD MENTALITY
Forget that the liberal progressives are now cannibalizing each other because one group wants it known that they are more of a victim than any other group. Forget the fact that these "victimized" women are marching in protest against Donald Trump's inauguration despite the fact that female employees of Trump have nothing but glowing reports about him, as reported by the MSM.
The real problem is all in Ms. Rose's screed itself, starting with the statement "It's a privilege that white supremacy wasn't at the forefront of your reality, because you benefit from it."
As a white women Ms. Rose, it sure did not feel like I was benifitting from "white supremacy" when I was working two and three jobs just to keep food on my son's table, or pay to keep a roof over his head, or shoes on his feet, or clothes on his back.
I could go on and on about what realities aren't exclusive to black women such as Ms. Rose, but that isn't the point. The point is that millions of young white women and men do not "benefit" from "white supremacy" just because of the color of their skin and are not born racist because they were born white, but more importantly, there are millions of young black women and men that do not claim victimization at every turn because of the color of their skin and who have become highly successful members of society.
I think the most offensive part of Rose's screed, but also the most telling, is the part where she said "You don't just get to join because now you're scared, too. I was born scared."
This goes past the communists that have infiltrated our educational system in America, or the appeasement to snowflakes and career victims in our educational institutes, this goes all the way to the parents, the difference between parents of any color telling their children they were born a victim, and those telling their children they can do almost anything in this world if they work hard enough and are determined to succeed.
All children are "born scared," after all they are leaving the safety and warmth they spent months being protected in, but from that moment forward, other than children that are born to abusive parents, fear is taught, not something we are born with.
Rose might have well have said she was "born a victim," because that is what is behind her screed. The arrogance of thinking at the age of 27 that she has the right to tell people they should "talk less," is nothing more than a demand for a "safe space" where only their voices are heard, because how dare others offer their opinions, judgment and points of view. She dares tell "white allies" they should be "drowning themsleves in our poetry," or that people should be "reading our books and understanding the roots of racism and white supremacy."
That is what history books are for Ms. Rose, perhaps if snowflakes would stop attempting to remove "history" from the classroom because it includes "white people" as well, you would know that.
In 2013 a fascinating poll revealed that more Americans viewed blacks as racist than whites or Hispanics. The shocker of that poll from Rasmussen was that those numbers included 31% of Black Americans "think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way."
No one, and I mean no one, is claiming that white racism did not exist, or denying that there are still racists walking around in today's world, but what is not politically correct to mention is that black racism, as shown so clearly by Rose's screed, is far more prevalent today than white racism is.
The reason for that is that white people are more willing to call out a white racists than black people are to call out a black racists.
Where is Ms. Rose's outrage over the hate crime in Chicago when four black men and women kidnapped, tied up and tortured a white handicapped male? Where is her outrage and claims of racism when black activists call for the killing of white babies? Where is her outrage over the black on black murders, which are statistically higher than any other? Where is her outrage over the millions of black babies being aborted?
The only thing Rose is a "victim" of is allowing herself to be convinced that being black is being a victim.
Those that always identify as a victim, will always be a victim in their own minds.
