VVhite Feminism Dipped in Politics

New York based political writer and commentator, Amy Siskind, is currently being called out for present and past problematic tweets, as well as blocking Black women who ask her valid questions. A fusion of narrow-minded statements blended with a bias towards Black women have put the writer in conflict with her politics, her ties with feminism, and who it is she’s really resisting. Sadly, she represents the white feminism that chooses to endorse political figures who pose threats to Black women, opposed to a true Sisterhood that holds space for conflict resolution, equality, and intersectionality.
