Hillary's MLK, Jr. Day Ad



Also, listen here for Gloria Steinem to get her ass handed to her for that stupid op/ed piece she wrote a couple weeks back. It's quite lovely. Says animikwaan:
princeton university professor melissa harris-lacewell tears gloria a new *ahem* for that op-ed piece: slices through all of her b.s.; calls her out on her horrid 2nd wave feminisim; gets steinem to contradict herself by saying that steinem understands why [brown] people need to "back a winner" even though in principle she thinks it... sad; calls hillary an "attachment to while male patriarchal power" whose "experience married to, connected to, climbing up on white male patriarchy"; nabs and pins her down on steinem's lack of racial critique when steinem tries to feebly and distractingly tries to hijack the conversation with some old-skool feminist business about "work of caregiving"; and, basically tells her she totally neglected to mention how black women have been pushing against patriarchy in racial movements and feminist movements for decades.

you should print out and get some popcorn. the flames are high!
