Throughout all waves of feminism a rift created by race has existed–the rights, representations, and treatments asked of by feminists of different races (namely white and black feminists in America) have always had slight discrepancies. The problem with this has not always been how to overcome these differences, or even how to divide out goals to represent all women better, but understanding the different meanings of feminism to other cultures and colors and being literate of the constraints and difficulties other races have with current feminist policies, and how when gains are made politically and socially, not only one group of female’s lives are changing. Isis H. SettlesJennifer S. Pratt-Hyatt, and NiCole T. Buchanan all have done excellent research on what these different definitions of feminism and in particular womanhood mean to black and white women in America in Through the Lens of Race–be wary of very insightful statistics, though.

Hey there, I noticed you reblogged my comic on white saviours with, "full force side eye." It looks like you run a great blog here, so I was wondering if you had any criticisms for the piece? I'm very welcome to any suggestions. I'm sorry if I've been hurtful or misleading in any way.

Honestly. This comic was the best way to portray what happened in that episode and the IMPACT of it. I’ve tried to explain it to my friends offline and on why that image ofDaenerys having a bunch of brown people swarming her, calling her mother after liberating them didn’t sit well with me. The “side eye” comment was in regards to the episode itself rather than the piece of art. It was the historical significance that was overlooked, and you acknowledge that.  I applaud you for putting in a illustration, the words that I could not reach my friends with. Continue doing such a great job.
