That’s so true, Ann. Thank you for writing this brilliant piece. I’m reblogging your post to my new blog. Thanks a million Ann!


Isaiah Thomas. Don Imus. Snoopy Dog. Nelly Tip Drill. Russell Simmons. George Wallace. Cole Blease. Benjamin “Pitchfork” Tillman. Strom Thurmond. Orval Faubus. Eugene “Bull” Connor. Eddie Murphy. Martin Lawrence.

These are just a few of the names of “men” who have shown their hatred of black women and girls.  Since the history of race-based slavery, segregation and the reality of media and popular culture that devalues black women and girls, black women have fought a long hard battle to be given the same rights to womanhood as women of other races.

But, how can black women ever obtain respect, love, and adoration if there are people who look like “men”, walk upright like “men” but in reality are not men, so-called “men” who go out of their way to tear down and destroy black women, physically, verbally and with slanderous, libelous lies?

Elliot Rodger wasn’t interested in women 

And Japanese pop music proves that gun control won’t solve our problems.

Last updated: 07 Jun 2014


Recently, we’ve been hearing a lot about Elliot Rodger’s supposed misogyny. Some say the killings were a hate crime. Other people prefer to steer the conversation away from the topic of women.

This is fair, because really, Elliot wasn’t talking about women at all. He was talking about men.

Specifically, white men.

This is obvious if we take the time to listen to him. If we read his 140-page “My Twisted World: The Story of Elliot Rodger” with the same seriousness that we read other “stories”, we can see that women were generally irrelevant to Elliot. With the exception of those in his immediate family, Elliot writes about women as flat, faceless characters. They rarely have names, and never have personalities.

Actually, Elliot spends about as much…

Brazilian exchange student suffers racial abuse; Italian woman compares her to a monkey and cockroach

Anti Black/mixed people of partial African descent sentiment is universal and it’s not going away anytime soon because the global system of racism/white supremacy has a hierarchy in which Blacks and mixed people of partial Black/Aboriginal/African descent at the bottom and whites/Europeans at the top. Everyone else are in between. The people in power don’t want to relinquish their power which is based upon the exploitation and abuse of peoples of African and Indigenous descent around the world. Brazil is no exception.

Aluna do Ciências sem Fronteiras diz sofrer racismo e abre queixa na Itália

Note from BW of Brazil: OK, so here we have another incident of a racial insult of a Brazilian woman. As reports of racism are a regular feature on this blog, this in itself is not surprising. But the internationalization of the incident, as other incidents over the years, is something worthy of looking into a little deeper because of its implications on global understandings of race vs. the way many Brazilians like to see the country. Before we get into that, let’s first just delve into what happened. 

Science Without Borders student says she suffered racism and abuse in Italy

Suey Park

You go, Suey Park!



Suey Park (1990- ) is the pen name of an American writer, anti-racist activist and admitted feminist killjoy. She is best known for #CancelColbert, a Twitter campaign in 2014 to get Stephen Colbert to apologize for a racist joke he made at the expense of Asian Americans. In 2013 she did #POC4CulturalEnrichment, #BlackPowerYellowPeril and #NotYourAsianSidekick.

She grew up a token Asian girl in Lake Zurich, Illinois, a lily-white, upper-middle-class suburb of Chicago. Other children would pull up the corner of their eyes and laugh at her. Where did they learn that from? A teacher made a “ching chong” joke about her first name. Etc.

Girls at her Korean church were getting eyelid surgery. For years she suffered from an eating disorder because of unattainable White ideas of beauty common among Asian Americans. No matter what she wore or how she coloured hair, she could never be “white enough”.

Vern’s Venting: Why I Hate the Word ‘Diva’

This brilliant blog article by Lavern Merriweather at Brotha Wolf talks about the treatment and double standards of Black and White female celebrities. Yes, there is a double standard. Witness the treatment of Rihanna, Star Jones, Whitney Houston a couple years ago and the ongoing crusade to trash Beyonce’s reputation by bigot Bill O’Reilly.
It’s sad but it’s all in the name of preserving the “white woman pedestal”.


by Lavern Merriweather

Well, I actually don’t hate it so much as what it implies, and that is something very negative when it’s used to describe a black female singing star. We are all already fully aware that any personality trait seen as positive or sympathetic in a white person is automatically made negative when the person is black. Think about it. A white male celebrity or athlete who is full of himself is thought of as confident or self-assured yet a black male with the same traits is called arrogant or entitled. In the case of a black female, she is called a ‘diva’.

Now, I don’t know where exactly this word comes from or what it means necessarily. What I do know, however, is that when you hear that word associated with a black woman it’s never anything good, at least not any time white people in the media…
