The Week of the Woman in the Red Dress:You Don't Have to Bow Down to Beyonce's Delusional Supporters
Beyonce isn't stupid. She might be a morally bankrupt tool of sexists and anti-Black woman bigots, but she works hard and her team is marketing savvy. So it should be any surprise that she latched on to the controversy from earlier in the year about her statements to British Vogue about whether she considers herself a feminist.
She knew that embracing the term would invite criticism, but almost rabid loyalty from Black feminists with an axe to grind against their White feminists cohorts. She was right.
She didn't have to actually BE a feminist, just scroll around Youtube and find a video on feminism and take a sample. She knew that among the thirsty hordes, the bar would be very low.
Since last Thursday- DESPITE THE FACT THAT WHITE FEMINISTS HAVE NOT WRITTEN ANY POSTS ATTACKING HER NEW ALBUM - Black feminists have been on a full court press to shut down any conversation and declare that Beyonce is some kind of empowering figure for Black women. Beyonce may be a feminist, but she is also a tool for a system that oppresses Black women and girls.
If you didn't fall in line and dared to question these Black feminists, you didn't receive an explanation- merely rabid name calling and ressitations of every bad thing White feminists have ever done to them.
Black feminists are happy to use other Black women and girls as cannon fodder in their never ending war with White feminists. -- In the same way that the interests of Black women and girls were sold down river by the Civil Rights Industrial Complex. Black feminists are clamoring to sell our interests down river out of spite and greed. They can't tell you how any BLack woman or girl, other than Blue Ivy benefits from riding off to war on behalf of Beyonce.
None of this should surprise you. Black feminists clearly are arguing that other Black women and girls should remain attached to the Matrix and blindly support a woman who calls them bitch, let's her husband spit rhymes about beating up Tina Turner, works with pevert and predator terry Richardson and demands that other women bow down.
This week in the face of an unrelenting attack by Black feminists online, a group of brave souls stood up to say that they would not "Bow Down." For that, I salute you!
Black feminists are not ready to be unplugged, but that doesn't mean you have to join them as slaves in Beyonce's Matrix.
Remember who the real enemy is and never "bow down" to foolishness, no matter how man tweets and blog posts you are bludgeoned by.
