new wave feminism

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

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...

Reactions to Chris Brown at the Grammys. R.I.P. Society

I feel like this is a romantization and fetisization of the “aggressive black man” stereotype. I almost feel like all these girls are basically saying “isn’t that what he’s supposed to do anyway?” I know that white women who tend to fetishize black men almost get UPSET when they realize that he isn’t as “aggressive” & “dominant” as they were expecting.

"i don’t know why Rihanna complained"?? She didn’t complain, she was admitted to the hospital. But hey, when black women, especially "exotic" ones from the west indies are so oversexualized, dehumanized & routinely abused - is there any wonder why someone would say something so ridiculous?

I don’t even think these people have an actual understanding of what domestic abuse even IS. You can stay in your disney world and eject yourself off this actual planet.
