My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.
Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!

This is why Black women cannot desire to achieve “equality” with White women (or Black men, actually) because their position is still oppressed. This is why “damsel in distress” narratives (usually reserved for White women) for Black women such as in Django Unchained are not inherently progressive feminist ones. Shifting places in a hierarchy meant to oppress is not revolution. Challenging and crushing the hierarchy is. However, this positionality has to be discussed in terms of experiences and differences. It cannot be ignored solely to make the ones with the more “approved” notches (at a particular intersection) feel more “comfortable” with their privilege.
OOP. But don’t you tell a white feminist this. She’ll cry them white tears and then run to the first white man who’ll stick up for them.
They did it in the past, and they still do it now.
