White women need to deal with the fact that most of you voted for Trump. It’s the not the job of black women or any marginalised and oppressed person to take responsibility for the actions of their oppressor or to educate their oppressor.
I think it’s so funny how society is quick to brand those problematic lily white women (Taylor swift, Lena Dunham, Amy schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, etc) as feminist examples, but Beyoncé who has been singing feminist songs since destiny child and has always stood up for women had to write Feminist in bold on a mainstream scene but still people questioned whether or not she was a feminist
“Did you have a nightmare? I have nightmares too. Someday I’ll explain it to you. Why they came. Why they won’t ever go away. But I’ll tell you how I survive it. I make a list in my head. Of all the good things I’ve seen someone do. Every little thing I could remember. It’s like a game I do it over and over. Gets a little tedious after all these years, but… there are much worse games to play.”

Oh cool, Jennifer Lawrence wants to tell Donald Trump “Fuck you” instead of articulating what is wrong with his policies, his casual acceptance of racism, his misogyny, the way he treated Ivana, or how his presidency will make it hard for minorities living in America.
Keep being a white feminist Jennifer Lawrence. Keep being around Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham and absorbing their low brow bullshit. And by all means, keep complaining about pay inequality even though you were THE highest paid Oscar nominee this year (yes, you even got paid more than Leo).
Guys, a Hollywood actress disliking a Republican is sooooo newsworthy.
