It seems in my academic career that I have reached a problematic subject. I am taking “African-American perspectives on crime” my class is taught by a black male and the whole class is about black masculinity and how black men are unfairly tried in the judicial system (which is of course a problem) HOWEVER, black women are almost never talked about and if women are even INCLUDED in the discussions, in the films we watch they are sexual objects, in domestic positions, or called a bitch or a hoe.
My professor even said that if a woman lets a man call her a “bitch” or a “ho” then there is nothing that can be done about that.
He also glorifies male athletes…. which considering there is a gap of women in sports is something that leaves women out ENTIRELY.
Any feminist voices with other opinions about this subject? I am also looking for a feminist analysis of the popular tv show “The Boondocks” I would prefer to have a black feminist opinion, simply because there is both race and gender present in this issue.
