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...

Story found via @ljoywilliams:

Congressional Republicans have targeted the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps, for budget cuts, and have attempted to paint it as a program rife with fraud and abuse that is on an unsustainable path. While their argument ignores a host of facts, including that food stamp fraud is at an all-time low, it also ignores the economic benefits that the program brings to millions of low-income families.

is it any surprise that even though food stamp fraud is at an all time low, politicians can still pass legislation and debate in a professional based off of the stereotype that food stamp users (aka black, depraved, pathological welfare queens) are harming our country and stealing money from “the hard working Americans”?

Of course not. They probably believe their own lies without even bothering to do the research because - why wouldn’t welfare queens have nothing better to do than hurt the country and steal money? It cant possibly be true that these programs are in desperate need to combat poverty - especially in the face of a recession that we ALL went through.

hate vs facts. hate always wins
