Black Male Allies Needed, Not “Heroes”


One of my Black male feminist followers tweeted that he had to get over the notion of being women’s “heroes” as a male feminist; that’s male privilege. And heroism, in this context, feeds into patriarchy anyway.

We don’t need to be “saved.” We need everyone committed to justice—justice which truly benefits Black men as well. Patriarchy, patriarchal masculinity and phallocentrism DESTROYS them; intersectional feminism isn’t the culprit.
