"If" Black Women Were White Women

My only problem with this essay is that it fails to theorise how other ethnicities (Asian, Hispanic, Native American, Arab, etc.) who also have a substantially different look from Anglo-Saxon women would be treated. It’s an interesting theory though.

Granted, I’d like to remind everyone that all women are beautiful, and I don’t really understand the oversexualization of white women, much less the oversexualization of any women.

Azula seems perfectly capable of articulating her own thoughts about her experiences as a woman of color without demanding Black women to do it for her.

Best response ever.

    ah man. reblogging since the original post is amazing. the privilege-denying comments, not so much.
