I guess women can’t stand together, and all these terms have finally caused even more divide sadly: Black women and woc do not share the same womanhood and y'all too hate to hear it. woc and white women DO NOT share the same womanhood and yall hate to hear it Show this thread 3:24 PM 6/13/19 Twitter for iPhone always reminder for non-Black WoC all non-Black PoC, but specifically non-Black WoC because this is always a thing in feminist spaces/ conversations. Black. Instances of this are people using PoC/WoC the term WoC when an article, story, video, etc. is specifically about a BLACK woman/women and non- Black people will refer to them as a "WoC." This is from anywhere to a Black specific issue to just including ourselves in a moment of spotlight for Black women (see all previous Gina Rodriguez posts). If the issue is a Black issue or about a Black person, there is no need to try to make it a "PoC" issue because it's simply not. Anti-Blackness exists in our communities/spaces but yet we want to shout "Black/Brown solidarity" while not doing anything substantial to dismantle it. Being PoC does not absolve of this. We benefit from anti-Blackness and our proximity to whiteness (some more than others) will always afford us people do not have. Just as non-Black privilege exists. I say this often, but will continue to do so. privileges and access that Black white privilege exists, I will sometimes use BIWOC (Black, Indigenous, WoC) to highlight that Black/Indigenous women as having separate struggles. Just remember to use Black when it's about Black women/people/issues. As always, thread lightly cause the comments on posts on this are always a headache and a lot of people just want to be loud about their guilt and unwillingness to check themselves. I guess women can’t stand together, and all these terms have finally caused even more divide sadly

We’re just going after everyone now, I get what they’re saying but generalizing this much for every non-black race isn’t gonna make people want to help anyone: Dear non-Black POC: when you see "white people," assume it applies to you too My last post on non-Black privilege filled with same tired comments. 1) paragraphs about how much one has suffered for being Latinx. 2) Story about how a Black person was mean to them. 3) "WHY ARE YOU DIVIDING US!?" 4) Bringing up Indigenous folks/issues only to derail convo. I want to address one comment tho because it's something I've actually said before back when, I too, hadn't checked my anti-Blackness. That is the whole "why don't Black people ever show up for US (non- Black Latinx) when we show up for Black people all the time!?" Yes. I've said that, and I am so glad I made the choice to unpack my shit and do better My response to that comment: When have non-Black people collectively/ substantially shown up for Black people? And I'm not talking about you and your friends and or group. I'm talking as a whole? Are non-Black calling out their families? Are we not just including, but centering, Black Latinx in spaces, discourse, panels, events? Are we still acting like immigration is a non-Black Latinx issue only so that we can use it against Black people to say "they don't care about our issues" when Black peoples fave higher deportation rates and violence at hands of ICE? How do we feel when white women demand that WoC fight for them? When white actresses called on WoC to help them get equal pay in Hollywood rightfully pissed at their entitlement never show up for WoC. That's the same everyone was since they thing with Black women. Us demanding they "show up for us" when we can't even get past anti-Blackness in our community without comments like this. a convo on And for the record, Black people ALWAYS show up for other people. Especially Black women. We have ALL benefited from and ride off the back of Black peoples labor. The reason marginalized groups in this country have many rights is because of Black people who have always molded, created, and shaped movements and thoughts. Including the Chicano Movement. So here is a handy tip, when Black people say shit about "white people" reflect and unpack that for yourself, too. This isn't to say we're white or are afforded white privilege, but to acknowledge we also hold anti-Black sentiments.
