America Does Not Deserve Black Women

An Open Letter to the Patriarchy

The FDR drive is a parkway which runs 9 miles along the east side of Manhattan. An estimated 175,000 vehicles drive through it every day. Predictably, black women could lay down on that very parkway welcoming 175,000 tractor trailers to run over them and the only thing they would be remembered for is not laying down straight or flat enough.

If you read that and sighed about the absurdity of this correlation, then you might want to check your privilege.
