Why White Women, Intersectionality And Black Feminism Don’t Mix

Betty Shelby, a white Tulsa police officer who was responding to a stalled car call on her way to a domestic dispute call, shot and killed Terence Crutcher- an unarmed black man. Her prior history doesn’t show her as an upstanding pillar of the community. In fact, she was/is a weed-smoking, angry, verbally and mentally abusive privileged white woman who happened to work for a police department. In 2010, she was also investigated for using excessive force in a raid. Of course, there was no punishment. But how did SHE even become a cop with that track record?

This what we know so far. These “minor” details are essential to where I’m going. Stay with me. We, also, know that she participated in a “Pro America” rally where she led the Pledge Of Allegiance in 2004.And all I hear in my mind is “Let’s make ‘Murica great again!”  *in THE redneckest of redneck voices* but ok- her husband was in the military and I guess she was celebrating HIM. I guess.

You might be wondering why you are getting all of this backstory? Keep cool. I’m getting to that. You will not be disappointed. I promise.

So there are conflicting stories in her report. He, supposedly, was reaching in a window and he was shot but the blood splatter indicates the window was rolled all the way up. Ummmm kay. She didn’t activate her dash cam when she initially stopped but of course she wouldn’t tell a lie, right? Riiiight. Her husband, also a cop, was flying overhead in a helicopter with another officer when someone said, “looks like a bad dude, too. Probably on something.”

Excuse me?!?!? How can a person tell ALL OF THAT from the from the fucking air? Are you White Jesus?

Anyway, I’m off track as hell because ADD.

Anyway, Terence Crutcher is murdered by a single gunshot fired by her.

She was charged with 1st degree manslaughter after the Tulsa department deemed her reaction “unreasonable”.

As I’m reading all of these statuses talking about the fact that Betty Shelby was charged with manslaughter and she’s a woman..and she’s not receiving the same protection as white men..blah blah blah…I can’t help but feel absolutely nothing for her.

Donald Trump’s approach to getting chicks is to “Grab them by the pussy.” Literally, muthafuckas are losing their minds over this statement which isn’t really surprising to be honest. He has said some deplorable shit and this is what folks are getting mad about? This is gross. Yes. I would rather have my vagina stung by scorpions repeatedly than have his Vienna sausage fingers groping at my pussy but Trump isn’t a frightening man. Here’s what is bothering me. Up until this point, Donald has said all types of shit that would warrant a hard left hook to that glass chin. But let the fragility of  white women come into play and he’s a monster.

He’s an alleged child rapist, racist, philanderer and proverbial dick. When you watch the video, you’d think we would catch him snatching the pubes off of helpless white women. It’s not the case. He sounded like a trick. A pathetic, desperate trick who pays for pussy. See trophy wives. With all the shit he popped on that video, he didn’t say anything inappropriate to her. Not for nothing- this is classic “I’m mad because he said he grabs pussies but he hasn’t actually grabbed one”.

But THAT’S what you’re actually mad at? Not the things that he has actually done like openly discriminate against blacks, not pay hardworking people who’ve done work for him or talking shit about Muslims and anybody else who isn’t WASP.

Because again fragile white women need protection over everybody else. Whether they break the law or never have their pussies grabbed only talked about, white women seem to be at the forefront of every type of defender. Women, who are often perpetrators of injustices albeit directly or indirectly, get compassion and comfort.

It must be fucking nice.

Oh and the sooner Trump gets that punch to the face;  the sooner America will, indeed, be great again.

Thank you for coming out. God bless you. Good night.

    Black males want Black supremacy , but the ability to oppress black women. White women want equality for them, but not for black women . They both want us to fight for their rights, but never want us to benefit , and believe we should embrace a marginalized and oppressed status… FUCK THAT ! We must advocate for #SistaPower .
