new wave feminism

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

there is already evidence that Americans go out of their way to distance themselves from the “troubled populations” within poor communities of color. Poverty is often heavily concentrated in the black “ghetto” because the rest of America puts makes an effort, unconscious or deliberate, to make sure that they live as far away from black poverty as possible. It is this fear of the symbolic “black criminal” that fuels the growing prison population, as well as takes away our incentive to do anything about it. All the while, people in poor communities of color live with the reality of being marked as a threat to greater society.
