On The Issues Magazine - Race, Feminism, Our Future...

A tip of the Afro to the people at On The Issues Magazine The Progressive Women’s Magazine for their current issue Race, Feminism, Our Future.

A bitch has been working my way through it and…well, it’s a must read. Not because you’ll agree with everything, but because even the shit you’ll disagree with will inspire the kind of conversations we need to be having right now.

They had me hooked with this From The Editors…

“What do postfeminism and postracialism have to do with liberation and freedom? The answer is clear: nothing -- not a single thing. Postfeminism or postracialism contribute nothing to dismantling the patriarchal systems that spread across cultures and races. Or to inhibit gender violence, deliver healthcare, provide economic relief or increase abortion accessibility. The “posts” are nonmovements and they move precisely nothing forward.”


Check it out and let me know what you think of it.

I’d like to recommend Taking on Postracialism by Rinku Sen…and Birthers and Birchers: Hiding Behind Stars and Stripes by Loretta J. Ross…oh, and..

...shit, just go read the issue from start to finish and discuss!
