Let’s clear something up...
Feminism refers to the advocacy for women’s rights on the ground of equality of all sexes.
White feminism refers to a brand of feminism that focuses primarily on white Western women, with a constant failure to include the struggles of women of colour, LGBTQIA+ women, transgender women and women of cultural and religious minorities.
Miley Cyrus is a white feminist.
She belittled Nicki in an interview for using her platform to bring to light the struggles WOC face in the entertainment industry as opposed to white female artists and then acted victimised when Nicki called her out on her bullshit. She completely dismissed a struggles WOC face, a prime example of white feminism.
What’s more, she turned up to the MTV VMAs with dreadlocks and no one uttered a word. Meantime, when Zendaya, a WOC, sported dreadlocks at the Oscars, Giuliana Rancic said she smelled like “patchouli oil” and “weed” (racism at its finest).
There is a huge difference between the type of feminist Miley Cyrus is and the type of feminist Nicki Minaj is, and the fact that Miley Cyrus can dismiss Nicki and have half the world defend her privilege is a scary, scary thing.
