“…Even Macklemore acknowledged that he “robbed Kendrick,” via a text message that he then sent out screenshots of via social media. However, Macklemore claimed that fear prevented him from taking a courageous stance and saying exactly that when he went up to accept his award. But Kendrick Lamar can’t do anything with a private apology, Macklemore. Far too often, allies refuse to speak up in public while asking for absolution via private confessions. Macklemore failed to use the white privilege that he has readily acknowledged to challenge this structure of power in a moment when the world was watching.”

WHITE FEMINISM COLLUDING WITH HUMAN SPECIESISM COLLUDING WITH SETTLER COLONIALISM
or white woman saving palestinian donkeys from palestinian men?
kill me nowThey care more about fucking donkeys than the very real human suffering of the Palestinian people and African immigrants living under the thumb of Israeli tyranny. Fucking typical of white/Western “feminism”.
what does this have to do w/ feminism tho
Yeah, this seems like a general white-people-priorities thing. But seriously, give me a fucking break.
