Overheard on This Week In Blackness
“It would really be nice for white people to believe [what] black people say about racism without Jon Stewart having to break it down for them.”
White peoples’ definition of racism is hurt feelings, instead of what it actually is, and that’s systematic destruction of an ethnic group. Understand that, and then you’ll understand why racism doesn’t “go both ways”.

One of the things I like about this: they’re doing it without shouting down women.
Because “that doesn’t happen to guys” *IS* a feminist issue. Male victims of abuse being dismissed, blamed or ridiculed because they weren’t “manly” enough is a part of patriarchy. And you can raise awareness of that without dismissing other feminist issues or bringing it up as a “counter argument” to problems women face.
MRAs, take note. This is how you actually support men’s rights.
