No, Straight Black Men Aren’t the “White People of Black People”

Thinking on that phrase “straight black men are the white people of black ppl” and I disagree.

Black men are the WHITE WOMEN of black ppl.

-they’re not THE oppressor but fuck if they don’t wanna be

-willing to dismiss/ never address the issues of black women but feels entitled to our labor

-wants an underpaid and over worked black woman as a maid and cook

-want black women to choose between being woman and being black.

-not really seeking to upset the power structure just moving themselves up in it- fine with black Women staying where we are

-“If im not the center of it, it doesn’t matter and you’re being divisive

-“the white man is the enemy”- so ignore the ways I fuck you over

-less educated per capita but makes more money cause ethno-patriarchy.

-weaponizes white patriarchal desirability politics as a means to denigrate black women

-“what’s intersectionality”?

-intracommunally protected identity

-“if you focus on me you’ll get trickle down rights”

-not ok to address any of the former because then you’re a traitor to the movement

-black women take all my jobs/ opportunities cause of affirmative action

-not all ______

-gay/ trans rights is a distraction

Ashies and Beckys get along so well because of their mutual misogynoir.

Pro black. Pro woman. Pro child. I write about and for blackness. I am periodically petty, overly opinionated, and underpaid. https://www.thecookout.club
