An Aggregator On The Best Blogs Concerning Racial Issues, White Supremacy, and Other Radical Musings

Brownfemipower and Appropriation

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 11, 2008

[Sorry in advance to Ampersand. All posts that are posted at The Blog and the Bullet are automatically cross-posted on Alas, a blog. Therefore his post will be posted twice on his blog. Which is why I normally don’t link Alas, a blog on here, but this stuff is important.]

Ampersand blogs about the controversy surrounding Amanda Marcotte and Brownfemipower shutting down her site:

I like and respect both BFP and Amanda Marcotte. This shit just sucks.

…we live in a racist context. And in that context, when white progressives take up issues that POC activists have been leading on for years, we should credit, cite and acknowlege the work of POC. Otherwise, we’re contributing to a racist pattern that’s been going on for decades, in all forms of writing and art.

    No need to worry about stuff like this; if it ever really starts to bug me, I can always just delete posts that are just quotes from “Alas.” And I appreciate the link.
