Underappreciated Female Soldiers of Color
America often blames its populations of color for all its social and economic problems, especially its black population. The negative parts of our lives are overly exposed and hyped (as though the negative aspects are our only aspects), our abilities and contributions are routinely ignored, our cultural heritages are--essentially--violated and our daily experiences of discrimination and exploitation are triviliazed, derailed, and ultimately dismissed. When we try to speak out against injustices on our own behalf, we're told we're "creating the problem"...which again conveniently ignores preexisting problems, both in communities of color, and communities that are white. No...seriously.
identity assaulted, redefined, and belittled, then your ass shouldn't be dying for anyone (Oh and uh...all you white gals and broke white folks descended from generation and after generation of broke white folks? Feel free to sit out on any wars as well. You don't owe your more privileged white brethren a goddamn thing). America has got to stop denying different populations equal rights and benefits, while expecting the denied populations to remain at its beck and call--fuck that. After all, it was not our hubris which opened this nation up to attack, so I don't see why our young, our beautiful, and our gifted should have to die for it.
Like the Viet Cong from not too long ago, the Arabs ain't the ones calling us "nigger".
