Woman Is The Nigger Of the World

Apr 29, 2009 | Posted by: womanistmusings | Full story: www.womanist-musings.com

I suppose at the time that this song was written it was deemed progressive. It reminds of the Student as Nigger by Faber which was published a few years before this song was released, which pushed the same sort of idea. Today this form of appropriation is readily engaged in by the GLBT community with the phrase gay is the new black (I bet they thought they were being original).

Though much time has passed since the song and the paper were released, whiteness still defines oppression by how it treats blacks. White privilege means the ability to erase others while complaining that one is uniquely oppressed because you are experiencing a form of discrimination that is normally reserved for a group that has been assigned the identity of “other’. Heaven forbid any white person live with a small dose of the kind of systemic inequality that blacks face on a daily basis.

Interesting comment by the author. I wonder how many women they interviewed and got their take on 'equality' in a 'man's world'. Just sayin'.....

In fact, the song in question is all about women's treatment in a man's world. Not one of Lennon's finest.......

I guess so, but I never really bought into feminism. I mean at one point in history *before I was born* there were some legitimate complaints but IMHO women actually have the advantages nowadays because of affirmative action, sexually based hiring quotas, special loans and grants for school ect. This is all fine with be, but at the same time with all these freebies being handed out to women I really dont care to hear a woman complain about things not being equall.

Gays are trying to say they the new blacks now

THey so pathethic and deplaorable.

THey like straight actors doing there work and cause fro them on the screen.

No one could dop that for a black man.

Political gays are sickening.

THey should all move to California where they can push poo legally.

Those demented bitches have nothing to complain about.

Sit them in a room with some Native Americans then they'll learn some stories.

Totalitarian bitches!

Why exactly would you "want" to use that word? Does it make you feel powerful or something?
