Many years ago now, I was teaching a course at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. The course was Black Feminist Theory.
Many women in the room, including an equal amount of white and black women, said that they were interested in feminism because they “want what men have.” Glad that I was teaching the course and could help them understand more accurate and historic underpinnings of feminism, but, it was sad to see and learn that many women desire to mimic and reproduce the adolescent behavior of men.
That said, last night, when we saw so many of the women chant “USA” at the #SOTU2019 (e.g., white, black, red, yellow, and brown) just as the men did, it was very, very disappointing to me.
Indeed, the Democrat- Republican dynamic is not getting it.
