#REPOST Memba how sistas were crying about being marginalized? Google iy… nothing was ever addressed which is why marches have been cancelled around the country for lack of diversity and being ‘too white’. Rather than address that, they switched the narrative and made it about Farrakhan. But lets not forget the riff didn’t begin, and is not about Farrakhan… Memba this?
I just can’t with sistas crying about the Women’s March marginalization of black women and our issues. That was exactly the wake up call some of y’all needed. Quit expecting others to understand or even give a damn about our struggle. When those outside our community genuinely do, you will know by the way you are treated. When those outside our community tell you it ain’t about you and show you they couldn’t care less about your struggle as a black woman, believe what they say.
I wonder how many of these sistas know that the Women’s March is actually a rip off off the Official Million Woman March MWM20 that will be celebrating it’s 20th year anniversary march this year? Or that the MWM was specifically created to address issues of black women… and that was 20 years ago.
Go to the MWM Facebook page, read how the drama played out between the march created for black women by black women and the Women’s March… If you are experiencing mixed feelings today, it should be because you unwittingly supported a march that attempted to erase the MWM… not because organizers and many attendees of the Women’s March honestly showed you how they felt.
The Official Million Woman March MWM20 is later this year. I hope those of you who supported the Women’s March show up and support the actual march that was created for and by you.
