Women March but were Black Women Played? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


06557cef-6e66-43ba-9552-f981b6335c75_cx0_cy6_cw0_w987_r1_s_r1It looked powerful, united and victorious as over five (5) Million women (and some men) worldwide and over 1 Million in Washington, D.C., marched, spoke, rallied and made their voices heard on January 21, 2017.

But who exactly was making history and what was/is the real agenda behind this mantra of women united?

Naysayers are questioning the real intent or hidden agenda behind this Women’s march on Washington; when historically speaking, the Feminist movement was just another method of “divide and conquer” the black family. Black women were only ever included to boost their numbers with no real benefit.

The traditional feminist movement isn’t really advocating for Black women or other women of color, white feminists have enlisted women of color to fight a battle that’s not entirely theirs to fight.

When in all reality, black women should not feed the dysfunction of devaluing the black male presence and authority of being absent from a family structure.

  1. Ok Shemeka!
    Many people were out with differing agendas in one unifying body. It was merely an opportunity to join with the world concerned with recent American politics.
    Tuning in o hear this take on it.

  2. I wanted to represent differently abled folks and for the most part men and women came out sending a basic anti-Trump message aside from the voting booth.

  3. I feel good that White Women are leading this march and future marches certain to come. 53 percent of White Women voted for Trump, so they should be mad!

    Because the amount of power Trump has with Congress and the Supreme Court SHOULD be of INTEREST AND CONCERN to all of us, given his proclivity to be compulsive, narcissistic and catering to his base and the GOP.

  6. Yes black women were never initially included just to add to the numbers. And some of the most privileged people in the world, making public appearances not to help us but to help themselves make more money.

  9. So, they were/are willing to support this movement based on the facts concerning the founder of PPH? When she hated the disable, and blacks. Yet, PPH is a pivotal piece to the womens right movement. FOH

  15. “The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government and the incoming administration: that we stand together in solidarity and expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities”

    And I’m quoting this from its organizers.

  17. Good show Shameka Michelle, you answered that shit and was on point too. It’s true their men raped our women and oppressed our men so why should we march with them? 😡

      1. If you heard the show, you heard her say if they are NOT trying to uplift and help our black men, then they are trying to keep us oppressed. that was something to think about.

      2. I heard the show and don’t think it should be about a racial divide but unity amongst all women, black, white, India, Puerto Ricans etc.

      3. PookieNem,
        We’re dealing with systematic oppression. They don’t/can’t lynch us like they used to (though it’s been reported to happen once in a while in the south). Now, they destroy us economically, mentally, and physically. Law enforcement is a perfect example. It was established to catch runaway slaves. When they were “freed”, a law was later established that it was illegal to be homeless. Guess who were unable to afford housing? We were. So, that means we were back in bondage (prison) and living in the unfortunate cycle of life.

        But Pookie, my dear sister, I understand where you’re coming from. I appreciate your insight.

  18. Shameka was right about our voices being heard in any march. These marches do not support us. It’s a farce.

  19. It was an interesting conversation and Shameka Michelle was right on.

  20. Great show.
    I agree with Shameka, we can attach ourselves to so many marches from the moon and back. And we will still not get the respect as a people.
    We’ve been marching over the same issues since we left the plantation fields.

  21. Shameka’s commentary is funny with facts. She eloquently broke down why she believes black women had no business marching with a bunch of privileged Becky’s and I agree with her whole heartedly.

        That chile gave us something to think about. As black women we need to STOP taking up other people’s causes when they don’t take on ours. We ain’t never been a privileged people here in AmeriKKKA
