........ dont pretend that nazism/white supremacy isn't hugely filled with misogyny and is not appealing to women at all. :/ dont even pretend that violence isn't primarily a white male problem. im surprised you didnt say "but muslims are terrorists too" the same way you said women are. men are like 99.9% of these people, please stop spreading lies.

I’m a historian trained in the history of the American civil rights movement.  My PhD adviser is the leading expert anti-desegretation organizing in the country.  

My reference to the numbers of women who were members of the KKK Women’s Auxillery comes from Women of the Klan: Racism and Gender in the 1920s by Kathleen M. Blee (University of California Press).  A book I had to read for my doctoral comps and features on the reading lists a great many people who pass through my department heading towards PhD’s in American History.  

You can find a lot of the history of how white women’s supremacy and protecting the virtue of white ladies in No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies: Women and the Obligations of Citizenship by Linda K. Kerber (Hill and Wang).

Terror in the Heart of Freedom: Citizenship, Sexual Violence, and the Meaning of Race in the Postemancipation South by Hannah Rosen (UNC Press) and  Gender and Jim Crow: Women and the Politics of White Supremacy in North Carolina, 1896-1920 by Glenda Gilmore (UNC Press) will give you a good companion of how women and ideas about womanhood shaped the American racial system post Civil War and into the 20th century.  Both books are pillars in the field.

If you want something more modern I’d suggest you look at how the blameless white mother and the ill behaved African American and Latino mother have shaped both our abortion and our welfare policy in in ways that demonize minority women and keep them in poverty Dangerous Pregnancies: Mothers, Disabilities, and Abortion in Modern America by Leslie Reagan (University of California Press) and Reproducing Empire: Race, Sex, Science, and U.S. Imperialism in Puerto Rico by Laura Briggs (University of California Press).

Or I suppose you missed my linking to the New York Times article from January of 2017 where the woman who sparked Emmett Till’s murder, a brutal killing of a child in the name of her virtue as a white woman, confessed to making the entire incident up.

White women have always … always… when given the choice chosen our skin over our gender and thrown black men and women under the bus to advance our own comfort.  There is literally no example in American history that speaks against this.

But yeah.  I’m lying to make white women look bad.

2009 NCAA College Cup: Stanford 0-1 UNC

UNC’s 20th national championship, a/k/a the end of the O’Hara era at the Cardinal.

Enough ink has been spilled on KO’s ejection at the 73rd minute but not enough about Baby Press soldiering on without the partner that helped make Stanford’s unprecedented 25-0 run possible.

I see you there, #4 Meghan Klingenberg…

Strange Goings On at The Farm

Stanford 1-1 UNC, 2OT

Yaaaas, that’s KO scoring on a certain Ashlyn Harris of the visiting Tar Heels to level the game 1-1. UNC struck first with a give-and-go from Casey Nogueira to Tobin Heath. The game would go on double overtime and despite Baby Press making life difficult for Ash in the latter stages, her goaltending (6 saves) preserves the draw.

That game is epic for several reasons. Three future recipients of the MAC Herman Trophy were on the pitch, all Cardinal (KO, Press & Teresa Noyola—all three would play for the national title, with Tess finally winning one for the Card in 2011.)

No less than six ’15ers (O’Hara, Press, Engen, Harris, Heath, & Klingenberg) saw action in the match. Many more players were current or former USWNT, U-WNT, WPS or NWSL (Nogueira, Noyola, Allie Long, Lindsay Taylor, Ali Riley, Nikki Washington, Allison Falk etc…).
