White women may swear they’re down for the cause, but we all know when it comes to feminism, their blues ain’t like ours and Franchesca Ramsey demonstrated that perfectly in a late night post reporting on what happens when you try to call white feminists out on their B.S.
Setting up the exchange, Chescaleigh relayed how she attended a show preview and during the Q&A, asked why a show about championing feminism completely ignores women of color and not only makes fun of Asian women but makes black men the punchline off their jojes. It was at that point, she says, that the moderator came up to her to whitesplain what it was the jokes were about:
“We’re not fetishizing black men because as a Jewish plus-size woman, black men love me. I’m just speaking my truth.”
According to Franchesca, the only truth is that if you say things like “I’m too fat for cute white boys but black guys will f-ck me because they’ll f-ck anything. You’re a f-cking racist.”
Interestingly, that remark wasn’t even the worst part of the night for Franchesca. What was far more infuriating was how the moderator and other women refused to let her leave until they “absolved themselves of their white guilt” or in other words, were satisfied with their attempts to make her see things their way, all the while spewing off about the necessity of intersectional feminism and being the biggest offenders of it. In short, as Franchesca said:
“I am so f-cking sick of these women patting themselves on the back for calling out the patriarchy while being racist.”
So are we, girl. So are we. Watch her full rant above. What do you think?
