liberal feminisms acceptance of who is a feminist involves pornographers, rapists, pedophiles, traffickers, abusers, pimps, sadists and pretty much any misogynist male but women who are against those men? those women are the real bad guys and are not real feminists and god forbid you even breathe the same air as them

I love my skin!

Do you all understand how important this is? Do you?

So many dark skinned girls will look at this—or have seen this and will feel, even if by a little, better about themselves.

Sometimes all a kid needs is validation from someone who is just a little bit like them in some way or form (you know that word “representation”?) so they can easily believe and SEE they, too, can get to that level of whatever in their life. In this case a girl can say, “hey she’s dark like me and loves her skin. I can too!”

It’s one thing for someone in their everyday life to shower them with love and assurance that they’re fine in the skin they’re in, but it’s another thing to actually bare witness to it in the media you consume. It’s not just your mom being nice to you. The world thinks you’re fine the way you are too.

This is so important. They need to see women like this everywhere. They need to see themselves saying they love what society says they should hate. They NEED, TO, SEE, THIS.

It’s revolutionary to say you love what you got and didn’t ask for despite the world telling you otherwise.

So bless Sesame Street, man.

The Whip My Hair bit from Willow and now the loving your skin color bit with Lupita makes them a SUPER important children’s program.

One hundred fifty years after Harriet Tubman helped successfully free 750 slaves during the Raid at Combahee Ferry, becoming the first woman in U.S. history to successfully lead a military campaign, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons has chosen to commemorate her legacy by releasing a highly offensive web video titled “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape.”

In it, Harriet Tubman’s character played by YouTube comedienne Shanna Malcolm, can be seen willingly cajoling the master into sex, and even penetrating him with an unseen strap-on, in order to manipulate him into giving her freedom. Meanwhile, one of Harriet’s minions played by DeStorm Power hides in a closet with a video camera. The video was released by Simmon’s new YouTube network, All Def Digital.

At best, Simmons is utterly clueless about the realities of black female victimization during slavery; at worst, he’s a willfully ignorant misogynist who delights in minimizing the pain of slavery and rape for black women. This is one of the problems with the resurgence of black nationalist politics that inevitably follows the unjust killing of black boys like Trayvon Martin. With a scarily consistent frequency, black women’s political histories and needs are not only minimized but utterly discounted in service of a narrative of black male racial victimhood.

Earlier this month, Russell Simmons was outraged with Don Lemon for having such a limited view of black struggle that the latter would suggest that ceasing use of the N-word, a halt to wearing sagging pants, and a reduction in teen pregnancy and absentee fatherhood are the solutions to what ails black communities. But Simmons has absolutely no moral authority with which to critique Don Lemon, if he himself finds it reasonable to propagate these stereotypical narratives of black women as hypersexed, unrapeable, cunning and devious creatures.

Yet just two weeks later, he put his imprimatur on this unfortunate Harriet Tubman venture. His disrespect for the broad histories of violence that black women endured during slavery illustrate the profound limits of any form of black politics that have not grappled with the enduring problem of black male sexism. While black nationalist politics (and by nationalist, I mean race-conscious, not “we want our own nation”) has long taken issue with the myth of the black male rapist, it has been far less vocal on the various forms of violence done to black women. The myth of the black male rapist was propagated to justify lynching. The murders of young black men like Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, and the improper presumption of their criminality by their attackers, recalls and perpetuates this long history and understandably animates black politics.

But because so much of black politics has been focused on obtaining “manhood rights,” or the ability of black men to exercise the constitutional freedoms and protections given to white men, black women’s concerns have routinely fallen by the wayside in service of these presumably more important and urgent matters. Not only that, but a focus on black women’s issues has often been viewed not only as distracting but also as threatening to a black male political agenda, since giving black women more political power is seen as emasculating black men.

As Jamilah Lemieux, of Ebony magazine, put it on Twitter this week: #blackpowerisforblackmen. What this means, is that though black women are owed the outrage of black male race leaders, we will probably hear very little, if anything at all, from them. After all, the march to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington is happening in just another week or two, and black men can’t be bothered to stand up for black women at this time. Unfortunately, that stance is eerily similar to their resistance to letting us speak at the first one.



Does anyone care about black women?

Russell Simmons’ production of a “Harriet Tubman sex tape” shows how black women’s concerns are truly regarded
