04:06 pm - Pro Black and Pro Feminist - an oxymoron?
Can a Black man be both conscious/ pro black and also strongly believe in gender equality? - I am just finding that so many 'conscious' men seem to be against gender equality and anti-feminist.

absolutely. Im pro black and completely am for gender equality, but that might be because I was raised by mainly women. If anything, i have a higher respect for women than I do for men.

If you are pro black (in the way that I am thinking of) and for gender equality, well that's quite rare...I've found that the pro black men are generally sexist, while the black men who are not sexist tend to be white oriented.

Anyway thanks for your input and feel free to give your views on my blog...I'm trying to increase participation there.

i understand that, and I agree. I know a lot of black men who are sexist, but I guess i was raised a little differently.

I've noticed the same thing. But also if you read A taste of Power by Elaine Brown you will see how being pro-black and sexist is the ultimate preventor of change. In order for black people to really rise up in a way that envolves the men in a serious way, we all must discard our mysogynist veiws.
