There has been much bellyaching by liberal white women that 53% of us voted for Donald Trump in November presidential election.
After learning of this statistic, Sa’iyda Shabazz writes a challenge letter to her white friends in The Mary Sue:
“So, you voted for Trump. You don’t have to admit it, I know you did. Granted, I think the fact that some of you won’t admit it is telling. Some of you have said that you have stayed silent because you didn’t want to get dragged for voting for him.
If you’re standing by your choice, why won’t you defend it? And to those of you who have been open with your admiration…what exactly do you admire about him?”
She concludes: I may still be your friend, but our relationship will never be the same.
There is an assumption here. It is that women should choose as their identity group “women”. First of all, one might not necessarily desire to choose an identity group; however in today’s world, it is almost forced upon everyone. Still, “intersectionality” allows women to choose their race or their gender.
Naturally enough, she ends with one of the worst things that one woman can do to another; that is, cast one out.
As a response, the author writes,
While I am not your friend (and clearly won’t be anytime soon), I feel obliged to explain.
I am the wife of a white husband (who is a kind, hard-working, devoted family man).
I am the mother of a white son (who is the perfect mix of smart and sweet).
I am the sister of a white brother (who has served this country honorably as a US Marine).
I am the aunt of a white nephew (who has also served this country in the US Army).
I am the daughter of a white father (who won a Pulitzer prize covering the race riots in Detroit, in an effort to support civil rights).
I am the best friend of a white co-blogger (who has served in various hot spots across the globe as a Green Beret).
I am the employee of a white, male employer (who is an awesome boss and a substantial taxpayer).
Basically she is surrounded by white guys who get things done, protect her and treat her well. Probably one does not need to be surrounded by so many fine white fellas to be appreciative; to feel a sense of belonging. Perhaps just an adequate husband would be enough (hopefully).
The Feminists who try to divide people in communities should be ashamed of themselves. All they really offer is a more fertile environment for sluttery, government support and cats.
While life under Donald Trump may not be perfect for them, I anticipate that their lives will be better because of the policies that Trump plans to enact and the people he intends to put in charge. So will mine. And, so will those of progressives deriding those of us who voted for Trump…including you.
Now we are really getting to some motivation. The expectation is that Trump will benefit all of the men around her, which will benefit her. Once, most women were married, and this notion was a driving force in their thoughts. Nowadays, not so much. This is to the detriment of all.
