Women of the KKK, 1923.

No one can honestly tell me that this isn’t something that looks like it is straight out of the demonic mind of a scary movie producer. Sadly, it’s not. This is a real photograph taken of the female KKK members in 1923 ( just incase you thought white women were innocent ). As I stare at this picture my heart mourns for every strong POC, no not just those of African diaspora because we all know the KKK despises all us POC, they lived during the arguably the worst time for POC in America. They had no laws that could protect them or even had the chance to defend themselves in court like what we are rightfully and deservingly given today. Take a moment to pray (whatever your religion) for the souls of those affected by pre desegregation. Take a moment to thank those who lost their sons, daughters, Etc in the fight to be able to walk outside in broad daylight and not get lynched. Will racism ever end? I don’t know, but what I do know is that no one should have to put up with it as an every day nightmare. No matter what your ethnicity is we MUST stick together, for together we are strong. I dream of a day these people may never hurt our children.

this shit looks like american horror story

it was the black american horror story

My alma mater, Smith College, had a chapter of the KKK until the 1930s, thought we generally pretend it wasn’t the case. The myth of white female innocence with regards to systemic racial oppression is so pervasive it’s ridiculous.

white women are not and have never been passive victims of the white supremacist patriarchy, they are active enforcers of racial oppression as means of holding shared privilege with their white male counterparts 

What I been saying tho.

Thank you! White women might be worse for WoC than white men. They have always been very clear about where they stand.

women play a huge role in maintaining white supremacy esp in orgs like kkk. they are to birth the next generation of white supremacists. that is a position of status and power. so much about reproductive choice, health “justice” that white sexologist refuse to engage. are we surprised laws were created to protect them over all other women, to this day, in the US? the book women of the klan gives some deeper insight if interested. 

you can participate in white supremacy regardless of your gender

White women are not innocent, they’re just as dangerous and violent as white men.

❒ The amazing Chescaleigh has made a video poignantly highlighting issues of racism in the YouTube community.

She talks about the trend where comedy is used to justify harmful things. Delving deeper, she talks about how the usage (and acceptance) of black face and racial stereotypes…

The truth is those male feminists are often seen as being way more brave, and way more valuable than female feminists. I’m kind of tired of that. Because the truth is that as a woman, being a feminist is much more difficult. You’re accused of being crazy. People might even stop being friends with you if you speak out too much. You’re told you should be an “equalist” instead. Because ‘liberation’ is a dirty word (like feminism); it has to be about ‘equality’ rather, because
men feel threatened by the word ‘liberation’.

Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.

Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

You cannot jail the resistance!
