Like many white Americans who grew up with a distanced awareness of the discrimination, physical dangers, and blunt racism launched at Black Americans every day, I've felt new horror in the past few years as social media has allowed the true scope, details, and real-time impacts of such behavior — our behavior — to become ever more glaringly apparent. Thanks to the work and patience of many communities of color, platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram have helped to promote Black voices, positivity, and strength and distribute the real data on discrimination across the web in recent years, driving inching white awareness, too. All the while, these tools have also been empowering legions of dedicated and 'everyday' racists to wage war against visible Black women with all the fresh hell and tired tropes they can muster — effecting a digital siege on Black women and girls, and, ultimately, on everything our big, unwieldy country as a whole holds dear. For these relentless attacks are part of a greater culture in the U. It's a blood relative of the cultural biases whereby all women , but especially women of color, are given fewer opportunities to advance, less pay, and less medical attention than men are in the same situations; it's tied to Black and Hispanic men's disproportionate rates of arrest and imprisonment for crimes everyone is committing and to their lower pay and level of medical care, too.

Skip to Content. Lee is a middle class white male with no black female friends, rare interactions with black families growing up, and who states his interactions with black women only consist of work-related experiences. Yet, he expresses strong negative views of black women as unattractive and uneducated as the first thoughts that come to his mind. This quote by Lee and several other white m ale respondents in this essay dispute notions that only a few highly identifiable, old, deep-south bigots hold strong deep seated racialized views of black women. These expressions by white male respondents are indicative of the consistent exclusion of black women as relationship partners by white men, and representative of a powerful mental processing at play that goes beyond the limited language of stereotype.
