In 2015, all women should promote #BlackGirlsRock, no matter what nationality, creed or color. First, we should recognize that in the same manner that a state best handles it's own affairs; each culture understands the specific needs of its own women. For example, as long as the #LatinaGirlsRock does not desolate the integrity of Italian- American or Asian- American women, it's all good. Secondly, there is only one dominate culture in the United States that builds it's power from the degradation of others. Black women, presently, do not have the political capitol to rob from anyone.
Finally, True national gender equality will come about when EVERY women, no matter complexion, size or ethnicity, has the confidence to excel. If you have been blessed with extra privileges, you should help your sister, not put her down. There is room for us all!
No seriously, I was under the assumption that since the nation was aware of the social and economic disadvantages of African American Women, white women would come to our aid and uplift us. This outcry of criticism further proves that there is not, nor never has been a sisterhood between black and white women. Privilege is defined as a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people. A program that improves the self esteem of black women is not a privilege, but rather an essential and long overdue dose of confidence. Not only are Black women nearly incapable of being classified "privileged" in this nation. We are at a disadvantage. Don't believe me? OK. Here are the facts.
