There's a big, glowing neon duh sign in the room and it's followed by this little tidbit here: being "liberal" is a choice. Being born a person of color, however? Not so much. The two concepts are not synonymous in any way.
Mind you...here in the Land of Moi, words like "liberal", "conservative", "moderate", "Democrat", and "Republican" don't mean shit--I repeat--don't mean shit. All they are to Moi are labels of cliques which allow grown men and women to act like little mean girls.
In my furious opinion, America's political system is bullshit. It has done nothing but drastically increase the negative connotation which accompanies the term "politician" (a feat one would not even think possible). A job in politics has become just that: yet another job where sickeningly overpaid people go to work--on the days they actually choose to show up--and bitch at their coworkers like selfish, immature deadbeat teenagers for endless hours until it's time to go home and cash their fat-ass checks.
Quick recap: no one "speaks for POC" except for POC. However, if you talk to one self-proclaimed leader of black folks or another, do not think you know a damn thing about us. It takes waaaaaay more than listening to one of them.
sexism is a bigger problem than racism is a clear warning sign they do not have our best interests heart. They wouldn't know what our best interests were if you wrote 'em down on your hand and pimp-slapped them with it. So do not think women of color are "in line" with feminists--most of us don't even subscribe to that title. It has been far too tainted by what we tend to specify as "white feminists", just as we specify "white liberals."
Now that I've said all this, let me make something else abundantly clear: sharing this info with those of you who despise white liberals and/or feminists does not make us allies. You go fight your own fights with your little friends and leave us the fuck be.
The day you decide to give two shits about POC interests, come listen to us; we've got plenty to say.
