Soooooo many false narratives, one of the biggest falsely claimed a lack of female voices as a means to marginalize certain male voices and amplify certain female voices.
Females played a prominent role, we never lacked female voices. Ever… older voices, younger voices… Jamilah Rogers, Jamilah Nasheed, Maria Chappelle Nadal, Patricia Bynes, Julia Davis, Netta, Brittany Packnett, Brittany & Alexis, myself and countless others… female voices became an issue when BLM and others touched down… then the narrative changed, suddenly we had a lack of female voices. BLM, the nonprofit industrial complex and the Democratic Party handpicked certain females to spread a narrative that while true in previous movements was not true in ours.
This was done to create riffs where none existed, to push these newly anointed female leaders to the forefront and to start pushing the real agenda of Black Lives Matter (the org), intersectionality with white nonprofits and majority lgbt community using black women to do it.
It was never about black feminism.
