It all started when uber libturd Ani DiFranco wanted to have a Righteous Retreat at Nottoway Plantation. WoC (women of color) felt double plusungood about this.
Ani DiFranco, amusingly playing into stereotypes of liberals, calls herself Righteous Babe.
In yet another example of white feminist cluelessness, Singer Ani DiFranco will hold her annual songwriting retreat this year on Nottoway Plantation in Louisiana. Righteous Retreat Song Camp is billed as a feminist songwriting retreat, and DiFranco’s choice to hold the event at this locale has drawn ire from Black women who note the offensiveness of the location.
Black women feminists and allies took to the event’s Facebook page to express their concerns, yet neither Difranco nor anyone on her team has responded.
The thought of women choosing to luxuriate at the sites of historic brutality against black bodies confounds, but even more outrageous is the refusal of so many women to listen to those whose lived experiences continue to be mediated by the legacy of chattel slavery.
In fact, defenders like Mandi Harrington, a visibly white woman, try to tell us that we need to “reclaim” these spaces.
And when called out, these women go to shockingly extreme lengths to cover their tracks.
Take, for example, the exchange below. Harrington created a fake black woman persona named Laqueeta Jones to defend her senseless comments.
Then the tech savvy Negroes caught her Mandi sock puppeting in blackface!
Meanwhile, a white female named Kathryn is trolling for brownie points from her brownie friends:
Kathryn, all you’re doing is reminding WoC that they don’t look like Grace Kelly. You racist!
So a white feminist on the defending team tried to create a hashtag #stopblamingwhitewomenweneedunity but WoC twitter is eating it alive! Black Grrrrrll Powa!
A good smackdown of a white feminist by a very ungrateful black woman:
It could go on and on and on, but it’s good to see white feminists and liberals getting viciously attacked by the blacks. The coalition is cracking!
