Anti-Racism and White Feminism

 

This morning I was having this very discussion with myself. I always had a hard time identifying with white feminism because I felt that they always spoke on the behalf of POC and rarely let us voice our concerns. People like Tim Wise, who is not a self identified feminist but is a white man and an anti-racist activist, is constantly speaking on behalf of POC. Why not let us do the talking and writing? If given the opportunity, our opinions because of our experiences with racism is much more valid than an individual that has just read the textbooks. How about being a proper ally and stand behind us instead of leading the march.
