White Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 18, 2007

Rosarose07 writes about white feminists and their views:

Sorry, but I don’t care how many black women, Asian women, latina women, other non-white women you know, or how many Men of Color you’ve married, slept with, made babies with, or how you, as a white woman, might identify culturally, you are STILL a WHITE WOMAN. You do NOT know what it is like to really be anything but a white woman, no matter how much you think otherwise, and all the hip-hop, biracial babies, and spicy salsa in the world isn’t going to change that.

Comodifying Culture

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 18, 2007

In a globalized world ‘other countries’ are what “WE” were like in the PAST. I.e. a society NOT based on order, rationality, meritocracy, technocracy and logic – but rather this thing called “CULTURE”. Culture in this case becomes this ‘abstract thing in the corner isolated from other socio-political phenomenon.’ It’s not based on any level of ‘sanity’ it is based on loyal and unquestioned dogma a ‘primitive and collectivist’ way of thinking. Whereas, our world as we know it – depends on our ‘rationality’ and ‘individuality’.
