- p. 98f: "As
a black woman, I feel that our struggle for equality against sexism
and oppression has overlooked the problem of racism. All eyes are
' Come on, you know we're different from other women. How could
we, as feminists, have anything against blacks? If you have a specific
proplem to raise, okay, but try to leave skin color out of it.'
'Being white, we can't judge whether you percieve us as racist.
If you think about it that way, it's actually you who determines
what is and isn't racism.'
And thus they cast themselves as my victims, wronged by my harsh
judgment. I'm the one holding the reins while all these white feminists
tremble before me."
