Words For Warfare

[On Hip Hop].....

"these pornographic images of black women remind us of slavery and the auction block. And I will also say that these stereotypical images of black men as predators is also consistent with historic images of black people that we have been trying to eradicate. So they don't present positive images of black girls, women, or black men." - Beverly Guy-Sheftall


Congrats to Dr. Guy-Sheftall being named the new President of the National Women's Studies Association. Now maybe the white feminist blogs will finally acknowledge her rightful position in the field of women's studies and recognize her as "a practitioner in the tradition of black female intellectualism."

In general they haven't come to the defense of Michelle Obama, so I'm taking a wait 'n see attitude about whether a lot of feminists bloggers will look up to her or treat her as invisible.

I'm particularly glad spoke against the stereotyping on black men as predators and took time to mention this as part of the struggle of black families.

This morning I posted Threatened For Asking For A Jobmy son's outrageous experience where some asshole threatened to call the police because he inquired about damn job.

Everyone -

Thanks for the comments. I will follow up later with each one of you. Please feel free to cross-post on your blogs. I am getting so angry about this, I thought the post would help. Please spread the word, send e-mails to Ms. Soledad, cross-list, digg, my post. I am so tired of programs like this one!
