Of all colors, religions and nationalities

Another Rant by: Bettyjean Kling

 

My last piece was a cross posted from Wimins Watch called “BRING IT ON BROTHER SEXIST/RACIST PIG” challenging the call for reparations for blacks,  based on the fact that many have been ill treated throughout the ages and it is time to move ahead and work on getting women’s rights.

 

I commented that I agree it’s time to move on toward the future and sure as God made lil green apples – the civil rights activists or white guilt nutcases came out to give us a history lesson on how black slavery is the worst thing ever to happen on earth and how till the end of time and no matter how bad we women THINK we have or have had it nothing will compare and how we women must never forget about it or play it down. Hasn’t anyone ever reminded these jackasses that many- maybe more than half of those slaves were also FEMALE who still do not have equal rights to this day?

 

Time and time again – women who make up 52% of the population are asked to step aside! I got two choice words for these characters Oh Pleasssssse!

 

 

James- Your last line read”

 

“But this doesn’t mean that the legitimate issues of the legacy of slavery and racial discrimination can simply be cast aside, either.”

 

Where in God’s name did you get the idea that I or any other women are simply casting aside what happened to black slaves?

 

I did not write the piece to which you are responding nor the other pieces which your types always seem to rally to oppose so vehemently. I cross posted it because I am sick and tired of blacks with a chip on their shoulder or white guilt types still fighting what has already been fought and won while totally ignoring what has yet to be overcome – Equal rights for Women!!!

 

Get over it now! Move the hell on. Just as women of all colors, religions and nationalities helped the blacks get their due without whimpering over their own injustices – it is incumbent on blacks now to help womankind of all colors, religions and nationalities realize their equality.

 

Where are the civil rights leaders in this fight? Are they fighting for their black women to have equal rights with their black men at least? NO!

 

You – are you ready to come to battle for the ERA with the voracity you just took with this issue? Can you do that?

 

If not go lick your wounds quietly and get the hell out of our way while we fight our own battles – we simply want the black woman to come along and release herself from her enslavement yet again —  this time as a woman — just not as a black slave!

 

So either lead, follow or get the hell out of the way. How damned selfish can you be? Why is it always black, black, black? Isn’t it time for your mothers – your sisters and you daughters now and not just the blacks ones but of all colors, religions and nationalities?

 

When you talk to me about discrimination – I have to laugh – you see it certainly is DISCRIMINATION. It’s racial against white women, it’s sexual discrimination against all women and it’s ethno discrimination against non African descendants.

 

So just stop with the racial discrimination crap please. What happened to African Blacks was real – it happened and it was horrendous – so was the holocaust – so was every other act of terrorism and war, ethnocide and genocide of millions all over the world since the beginning of time but one thing among them is constant, women were always at least 50 % of the abused, enslaved, lynched, tortured, murdered, raped, pillaged, mistreated, of all of them and most often all of the above from within their own families and by their own kind.

 

Right now WOMEN alone in this country are singled out as the most discriminated against and are the only American Citizens without Constitutional rights to Equality.

 

Right now we can not turn on the TV or radio and hear a white man call black female basketball players “nappy headed ho’s” but we can hear black rap singers call all women “bitches and ho’s.

 

We can hear and see a US Senator and A US Governor called a ‘Bitch and a “CUNT”. We can see our students wear T-shirts with Hillary is a “Bitch and Sarah is a “Cunt” in our schools but not Obama is a “Prick.”

 

We can hang an effigy of Palin but not of Obama – didn’t they ever hang any women in the past? They sure did!

 

We can have them spoken about in the most derogatory ways imaginable. Have you heard the lyrics from Jay Z’s song “99 Problems(but the bitch ain’t one)” that the Obama’s choose to play in Iowa at their victory speech? Before you come talking to us – I suggest you go listen to those lyrics and tell me who is showing the disrespect to whom! So James – how about the legitimate issues of black discrimination against women of all colors, religions and nationalities.

 

And all our women are depicted on street corners as sluts including our 10-12 year old daughters and we wonder why pedophiles sneak into our homes and carry them away and rape and kill them.

 

You don’t even want to get me started on … like I said you don’t even want to get me started on how my black sisters need to wake up and join their sisters for their own sakes and that of their daughters. Let us not be segregated and separated anymore- let us come together as women of all colors, religions and nationalities and truly overcome slavery once and for all from men of all colors, religions and nationalities.

 

This is what we are debating here and now- so for the last time; lead, follow or get the hell out of our way!

  1. the civil rights activists or white guilt nutcases came out to give us a history lesson on how black slavery is the worst thing ever to happen on earth and how till the end of time and no matter how bad we women THINK we have or have had it nothing will compare and how we women must never forget about it or play it down.

    Actually no such person came.

    I’m the only one who objected to your post here, and I never said anything like this. I didn’t say that American slavery was worse than gender discrimination. I simply pointed out that both are vital issues of social justice.

    You – are you ready to come to battle for the ERA with the voracity you just took with this issue? Can you do that?

    Actually, I fight for gender equality with far more conviction and passion than I do for racial equality. I’ve never met anyone who’s more radical when it comes to women’s rights than I am.

    Before you come talking to us – I suggest you go listen to those lyrics and tell me who is showing the disrespect to whom!

    Those lyrics are probably horribly misogynistic. I wouldn’t know. What’s your point? That there’s sexism? We all know that. That there isn’t racism? That wouldn’t be true.

    So James – how about the legitimate issues of black discrimination against women of all colors, religions and nationalities.

    Again, what’s your point? That there are blacks (and whites) who discriminate against women? You’re preaching to the choir.

    my black sisters need to wake up and join their sisters for their own sakes and that of their daughters.

    How about letting them decide, for themselves, how to balance race and gender?

    For far too long, our society has told many people — including women and blacks — what to think and how to behave.

    It’s time both groups were able to make up their own minds, and chart their own course. Hopefully, that will be together, but no one should be dictating how anyone should see their own identity (gender or race first) or how they want to fight their battles.

  2. Wow BJ, that was powerful! This is a piece I hope you share with everyone monday night.

  3. Thanks, BJ! Great to meet you last night!

    We should never, never be in the game of displaying our wounds and claiming some are deeper in order to hold others back from equality. Social justice is for all, or it is for none.

    We women are finally saying, it’s our turn. No one is going to tell us to step aside in favor of another persecuted social group. People are having a hard time with this concept because it is very threatening to the established order and the idea that women should always let others go first.

    Unfortunately, we saw this year that just voting for Democrats does not advance our cause. So we are taking matters into our own hands and not allowing people to distract us with reports of their own victimization.

    I say, men should join us in this. There are plenty who agree that it’s time to give women equal representation and to pass the ERA. We should focus on these things and not worry about what color we are or who can whine more about their ancestors.
