SORT BY Relevancy
Part 2 of DIRTY LITTLE BALCK GIRLS
Last epidose, we spoke candidly with Writer Ione Lloyd about her play, Dirty Little Black Girls-A ground breaking play about four modern-day slaves in three neighboring brownstones in Park Slope, Brooklyn; a 16 year-old Nigerian domestic; an African-American nanny secretly pursuing a masters degree; a 50-something Jamaican lesbian housekeeper who is having a love affair with the Caucasian lady of the house. In the end, the shape-shifting “devil” teaches the women the joy in making a good mess.
How does this story relate to Black women today?
This week, we introduce the term Womanism...Out of the Feminist movement, the theory to consider the stuggle for equality was much deeper for Black women. They fought the evils of racism and class oppression in additon to sexism and ecominic excluision.
Where are we today? Where are the womanist today? Is the struggle any different/same? From Alice Walker to Audre Lorde, join as we we reminise and discuss the nature of black womens representation, subjection in additon to our need for acknowledgement and empowerment.

From the women who hit her son and was defined with a narrative by national, primarily white media to the black women who were standing on the frontines in protests in front of police for black male victims of violence but are noticeably absent around protests around black women who are victimized as well. This episode will explore the reason why black women are consistently presented in a very narrowly defined way and will open up a discussion on why they are expected to accept pain as a norm and regular part of their existence in contrast to other races of women.

the revolution of the mind continues....
Since when has it been against the rights of women to have self respect?
We published a post this week entitled "Letter to Big Booty Sisters" and it went viral causing a firestorm of debate on what should be logic and common sense.
Common sense dictates that you don't come out the house with your ass hanging in the street, but yet a contingent of feminazis (white and Black) have taken this as their clarion cry to convince Black woman that anyone holding them accountable for their actions is wrong and against their rights.
There is a difference between rights and stupidity. The Black feminist mafia is alive and well and working directly against the Black women having accountability for her actions. Saying everything is a man's fault without taking your own actions into account is why we can't get anywhere as a people.
A large section of our women have been bamboozled, their minds are lost. Reason and logic are left to the wind and only an attitude of "I am Not responsible for what I do because I am a woman and I can do what men can do. I also can take anything you say and twist it to my own agenda especially when it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic being discussed and everything is rape because I said so even though no one is talking about that". *blank stare* #FOH
We take a trip down memory lane, the suffrage movement, the real reason Black women were invited to the liberation movement, civil rights and women's rights, the rise of the "independent" woman, the REAL theory behind feminism , womanism and lastly how to spot a feminazi and help her take back her righteous mind.
