Girl Power and Black Pride

An article on the racist & feminist movements by #temmyphil

¤
These movements are quite paradoxical in nature. Girl Power initially represented a movement against Male domination and female oppresion, while Black Pride initially represented a movement against White domination and black oppression or Racism.
.
However as time progressed alongside success, these former protagonist movements have started becoming antagonistic in nature. Girl Power now focuses on Female liberation and domination only. Black Pride now focuses on Black liberation and domination only.
.
Both movements take advantage of the pity and mercy of their recipients, as their recepients do not want to seem offensive. A black man is very likely to pull out his racist card whenever he feels he isn’t given an opportunity, regardless that he might not deserve such opportunity. A female is very likely to pull out her feminism card whenever she feels she is being offended, even if it is a simple misunderstanding. Examples of these can be found majorly in public transports, work places and homes.
.
Here is the point: is there still female oppression? Of course there is!
Is there still racism and black oppression? Of course there is!
Are these movement working for the elimination of these oppressions? Of course there are!
But then, these movement should beware. They are abusing their powers and are heading towards the fight for domination only rather than liberation.
.
A wise quote says, ‘he who is a fighting a monster should beware, lest he becomes a monster in the process.’
