It’s 2014 and people still don’t realize that you can’t be a feminist if you’re racist

Technically this is wrong

It’s 2014 and people still don’t realize that you can’t be a feminist if you’re racist

Stop pretending that there aren’t issues in the feminist movement. Susan B. Anthony was a huge racist. You can be a feminist and be racist, and it’s so much more productive to address that issue than it is to pretend that issue doesn’t exist, by saying “oh those people aren’t feminists, they’re different from us.” Doesn’t solve anything and perpetuates the idea that, oh I’m not the one who needs to change and analyze my behavior, “those people” do, they’re the problematic ones, not me, not us.

Report: Obama Administration Considers Sidestepping U.N. Torture Ban Overseas 
Oct. 20 2014
The Obama administration is reportedly considering a move that would continue the Bush-era policy of ignoring the United Nations torture treaty overseas. In 2005, the Bush administration disclosed it had secretly interpreted a U.N. ban on “cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment” as not applying to any CIA or military prison outside of the United States. President Obama, then a senator, opposed Bush’s policy and proposed legislation to undermine it. The United States now faces a hearing before the Committee Against Torture at the United Nations next month. And according to The New York Times, “President Obama’s legal team is debating whether to back away from his earlier view” and “[reaffirm] the Bush administration’s position that the treaty imposes no legal obligation to bar cruelty outside U.S. borders.”
