Unfortunately, not paying attention to race and gender does not make gender-race inequalities go away, precisely because these inequalities are institutionalized and not just ideas in people’s heads.

First gif set.

From The Angry Eye. Old link removed from YouTube. :( New, shorter version: The Angry Eye Part 1 | Part 2. Relevant transcript.

The Angry Eye can be rough to watch for some but honestly, I would recommend that everyone see it at least once. It’s really important. It’s also interesting to watch, Jane Elliot conducts the same experiment on adults and they behave very differently than the teenagers did. And not in a good way.

There is no argument that can be made to justify the killing of Renisha McBride as Whites ride under the protection of the obliviousness created by White privilege and a justice system that exists to uphold White supremacy, not fairness and certainly not justice. 

I have been accosted by drunk White men and recently had my privacy invaded at home by a random White woman, which I wrote about here: Unlike Renisha McBride, A White Woman Came To My Door (Not Even For Help) And Lived Another Day. I did not murder any of them. Whites have spit on my life since childhood and I have not taken a life and most certainly not for someone knocking on my door. Yet Whites I’ve seen who seem to cheer her death have the audacity to attempt righteous indignation about her toxicology report released to the media for mass use even as “54 year old homeowner” has replaced this man’s name? Whites are really trying to have righteous indignation regarding alcohol? Do they know what they are like when drunk? Do they know the chaos they cause? Do they know the hell of dealing with them in a corporate workspace, college campus, restaurant or neighborhood when drunk? The entitlement and White privilege plus lack of inhibition? The hell that causes people.

A murder victim is being treated as a criminal. Still no charges filed and she’s already been buried. Yet the smear campaign against her continues and the quasi-anonymity for the killer continues. In a White supremacist society, Black victims are treated like criminals and Black criminals are treated like animals. 

And since a part of White supremacy includes the toddler-like nature that many Whites approach race with, all of your derailment and excuses are covered here so no need to add them to my post: I don’t care if “all” Whites are not like this; no I am not the “real” racist; no, Black people aren’t racist towards you; no, racism isn’t just insults; no, this incident is not isolated; no, this is not about drones or President Obama—mentioned as a way for you to erase what has happened here; no this is not about the White supremacist label “Black on Black” crime that you think Black people are “happy” about, when most crime is intraracial (including “White on White” crime) and Black people who harm Whites pay heavily when Whites who harm Black people do not; and no, this is not about some “generic” issue where “anyone” is capable of doing badly. Race cannot be erased from a history that used our blood as its ink for its story. 

I am tired of even having to write a disclaimer on my posts because your White supremacist petulance includes a lack of critical thinking, lack of boundaries, repetition of easily refuted derailment and a lack of self-control. I am…tired. I cannot even have a conversation on something like this—which is so stressful already—without having to address bigots every step of the way. Fuck you for this. 

Anyway, some important information/links:

All of my posts on this are tagged under her name: Renisha McBride

"My choice of mater­ial, cor­rug­ated card­board, to cre­ate bas-relief por­traits of dis­placed chil­dren in their nat­ive hab­it­ats, reflects their unseen status. Like cor­rug­ated card­board, the twenty mil­lion are every­where yet invisible. I have a strong affin­ity for these trau­mat­ized and abused chil­dren because of my child­hood. To me the plight of child sol­diers and chil­dren abused as sex slaves escapes notice in the civ­il­ized word which causes me to ques­tion how civ­il­ized we really are. To me, these are “Invis­ible People.”"

Here are some of Diego Ravier’s images on African albinism, after spending three months in Africa on assignment with Order of Malta, who sent him to document floods in Burkina Faso. During his stay, the French non-profit also asked him to feature doctors who work with Albinos and as his original assignment completed, he turned his attention to the albinos themselves, a group of people often seen as outcasts in a country where a genetic disorder that creates pale white skin is viewed superstitiously by fellow Africans who make Albinos the subject of economic, physical and social turmoil.

As a Muslim feminist woman of color, I cannot relate to Slutwalks as it caters mostly to the definition of emancipation set by white women. Slutwalks deviate in terms of delivering the message against sexual assault. It turns a blind eye to women of cultures where flimsy clothes don’t necessarily lead to rapes. Muslim women get raped too. Nassim Elbardouh is right. “Do Not Rape” Walk sounds better. This isn’t to say that I don’t support Slutwalks. I simply can’t relate to a liberating movement that does not liberate nor acknowledge me. Western feminism, despite its undeniable achievements, still perpetuates the image of a white woman as the liberated one. If these feminists do claim to represent all women, they need to understand the dynamics of the cultures other women hail from. Don’t care if you’re wearing a thong or burka, no one has the right to rape you. Burka clad brown Muslim women get raped too. Represent us. I want a movement that represents me regardless of my color and creed. End victim blaming and rape culture by representing everyone.
