Rose McGowan Pattycakes With White Supremacy

Rose McGowan, the self-anointed “#MeToo” queen herself went from being a victim of sexual assault and manipulation to being a villain in a few short years. That chick has an ax to grind with liberal White people, and she’s getting her chops in by any means necessary, even if it means pandering to Uncle Ruckus,’ siding with alleged sexual abusers (even though she claims she’s a victim herself), throwing Black people with no power under speeding buses, or playing politics with Black lives. McGowan’s siding with the party that’s anti-Black, anti-change, and anti-rights for Black people as long as she can carry out her vendettas is peak White woman in America. She is White Supremacy exuding every ounce of racism/White Supremacy she was born into.

According to McGowan, the main reason she switched from supporting the Democratic Party (the party of nice racism and exploitation) to supporting the Republican Party (the party of overt racism and exploitation) was “because everyone who has harassed, stalked and stolen from her during her Hollywood career has been a Democrat. And although she said she doesn’t agree with Elder on every issue, she thinks “he is the better candidate” and “the better man.”

What is the let freedom ring and equality kind of bullshit reason are those?

That’s not our business. That’s personal. McGowan’s rationale is the equivalent of saying because I made bad choices and I’m angry, everyone has to pay. Too bad, so sad, and if you get hurt during my latest scorch earth session, well, middle fingers to ya.

There are more White women like Rose McGowan roaming the earth than most people care to admit. At this point, it really doesn’t matter.

What matters is that closeted, casual racists/White Supremacists from all socioeconomic statuses, genders, and racial backgrounds are revealing themselves. White folks, grandfathereds, and Black gatekeepers like Candace Owens and Larry Elder are drawing their lines in the sand making it known early, loudly, and frequently which side of the plantation they plan to be on after the Great Reset and the New World Order is complete. McGowan will put Black folks in danger to hurt White folks because she’s been hurt by White folks.

Her antics are juvenile. but they’re also evil.

Many folks like to blame McGowan’s behavior on mental illness, but I blame her toxic behavior on Whiteness. She calculates her opportunities to injure non-White folks just like any other racist Karen or Chad. McGowan’s antics are nothing new to Black people, especially those of us living in the Dirty South. White women have always checked into and out of fights as soon as they’ve gotten their needs fulfilled. They’ve decried intersectionality and then jumped time to be White in the same damned work week. White women have gone from being the oppressor, crying oppressed, working with the oppressors, and when it’s all said and done give us victims of oppression, racism, and white systems the middle finger as they stand right next to the very thing they claimed to hate.

You can set your clock by most White people, which is why Rose McGowan’s endorsement/self-grandeur presentation wasn’t surprising to me at all.

Too many White people are willing to help us while leading us to slaughter at the same time. They’ll ask for our forgiveness up until the very moment we draw our last breathes. This kind of White rage can be slick and silent, but it’s always lethal to Black people. Most times, it’s deadly. Listen to Carol Anderson concisely explain how White rage acts every day.

White Women + White Rage = /Racism White Supremacy

It’s that pretty, dignified, precise type of White rage like Rose McGowan exacted that constantly gets a pass from White people. Rose didn’t use the N-word. She didn’t recite Faux News’ “Chicago” crime talking points. She didn’t point a gun at a Black person or lie on one of us to get us locked up. She simply used her feminism, White skin, and White platform to stand against racism/White Supremacy. To sweeten the pot, she used an anti-Black Black man in her game. What’s more perplexing to me about McGowan's antics is there are millions of White women who remain silent or pretend it’s not a big deal when White women like Rose McGowan go on an exploitative expedition with the devil for personal gain. Women like McGowan always reaffirm what Black folks know to be true about most White women.

A White woman can and will hurt you in the same way a White man will, except her femininity disarms in ways White male masculinity cannot. White feminism is toxic, absolutely deadly for Black people.

In fact, feminism was never intended for Black people. They only invited us because they can wrap themselves up in bills and legislation created specifically for Black people. Black folks keep getting kicked in our asses about it confirming we have no business aligning our collective with it, and still, we fall. You can’t make folks intersect with us unless they want to. People have to believe in intersectionality, and too many genders, sexual identities, and racial minorities have decided against seeing our likeness to side with racism/White Supremacy which requires you to hate Black people. In fact, racism/White Supremacy demands it.

You can treat Black people well and be a part of White Supremacy.

White feminism has nothing to do with girl power or equity. It has everything to do with White women competing with White men for White power. White feminism is as ruthless as patriarchy when it comes to getting what it wants. What I realize though is that White feminism is on life support. It’s already looking for its next host to suck the life and movement from. It will pair with anyone or anything that will help it get closer to White men. White women are so busy competing with White men and against other racial minorities for power, they haven’t figured out yet the last thing the world needs are White women who rule, govern, build and act just like White men. Nobody wants or needs that shit. The world is flailing, gasping for air as it tries to model itself after a fatally flawed governance structure rooted in racism/White Supremacy.

It’s oppressive, unsustainable, unrealistic, and unattainable.

Anything or anyone aligning itself with racism/White Supremacy is dead on arrival as far as I’m concerned, no matter how kind their White rage is.

White Supremacy Always Bets On Black

Every win White feminism has had came at the expense of Black women. Black folks don’t need another White movement to partner with only to be robbed of momentum, resources, and attention. We’ve had enough of those already. McGowan is just the latest White woman in the long list of White and White adjacent non-White women who throw Black people under the bus to maintain close proximity to White Supremacy. The dominant society wouldn’t have it any other way.

I saw right through McGowan the first time she chanted #MeToo. I’ve seen White women like her all of my life. I saw them in school, at work, in the store asking for managers, at the PTA meetings, at track and field meets, working in the library, or working in fields like children’s advocacy and social work.

White women will do whatever they need to so they can get their way. They’ll use anyone they need to so they can hurt the people who have hurt them. That often means Black folks are their collateral damage. That’s the American way. Performative White allyship is everywhere, it’s in season, and it’s on full display. Black people better start reading the writing on the wall and c’mon home. White women are aligning themselves quietly and not so quietly with White Supremacy. White feminism comes with a side of quiet White rage. Recognize it before it's too late, then move accordingly.

The song by Hall and & Oates’ song “Man-Eater” describes White feminism to a T because like racism/White Supremacy, it will chew us up.

“I wouldn’t if I were you
I know what she can do
She’s deadly, man
She could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there but a beast is in the heart”

(Lyrics from the song “Man Eater” by Hall & Oates)

White women really know how to rip Black folks’ worlds apart. They serve the poison of White Supremacy with a side of pretty White rage and we drink it like fine wine. Black people need to hurry up and realize no movement already started by White people will ever liberate or improve the lives of Black people. Likewise, modeling anything they’ve created for our own community won’t work, no matter how different you think it is. It’s the same rotten fruit from a tree that continues to produce bad fruit.

How many backs does a Black man have? How many knives thrown by White Supremacy and White feminism will we have to pull out before we finally get the memo? How many times does a Black person have to die at the hands of a White woman before they can live?

The world may never know. White feminism is a gateway to Black death.
