Doesn’t believe that groups should focus on their own empowerment. Does that make any sense? Why wouldn’t they? And for All of this everyone needs to help empower other groups whose empowering bw? Common Sense tells us that those that are from a group or culture have a vested interest in said groups upliftment and empowerment. They know the community, what ails it etc. Yes I can be a bit of an idealist, but there is a point where the realist in me comes in. We are dealing with real people not some imaginary world that we created in our heads. That means that all that we all need to work together, if only so and so would work together etc. It ain’t gonna happen! Wanna know why? Because not all people for 1 have the same values, cultural or other wise, interests, focus etc. To me this just reinforces the whole throw away what you are doing and do for others who wouldn’t uplift your ass if it meant getting out of hell. Now I am for helping other groups and empowering other groups, but in the same token they should be doing the same for us! As I recall this was a response to a dissagreement with a BWE blogger. Funny thing is he complains about black women or women of color fighting for empowerment etc., but doesn’t acknowledge that other women sure won’t help these women if they are high up themselves. Why would that would threaten the very high status they aleady have? Black women (especially) and other women of color know the racial dynamics of their lives within this culture.
