‘Women of color’ have ‘color’? What color?
They are not ‘colored women’, nor ‘persons of color’
They are ‘women of color’ say congress women , Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib., Omar, and Pressley.
What actual ‘color’ have these four ‘women of color’? What are they really doing?
What do we know in general about these four ‘women of color’ whom Trump tweeted recently (7/15/2019) and said that they should go home, fix problems there and then come back and tell USA how it’s done?
Whence the term? ‘Women of color’ is a a self description which four women representatives have taken to self promote their collective image of themselves as victims. They view of themselves as victims of political oppression. Victims of racism. They see themselves as oppressed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, by Trump administration policies and by various other entities.
The term ‘colored women’ would be offensive to ‘women of color’. The term ‘colored persons’ has been used by various social justice activists to separate ‘whites’ [of European origin] from everyone else aka ‘colored persons’ [not of European origin].
Thus, according to some persons including these four ‘women of color’ ‘racism’ is built into the very fabric of America. These ‘women of color’ forget — or never learned — that the U.S. Constitution permits major league changes such that women and African-Americans vote and own property.
It’s our Constitution which gives more freedoms to the individual, and protects those freedoms, than anywhere else in the world.
But why do these four ‘women of color’ take for themselves what belongs to all women in the USA?
We are all American women of color . Who doesn’t have ‘color’? Get real. Most every woman in America, except albinos, have some color to their skin.
USA women are different ‘tints’. Some of us are darker, some lighter, some with warmer tones, some with more yellow pigment some more red.
More than half of America all of the women in America, have ‘some color’.
Usage of color in the English language. It’s true that English language describes various groups as having ‘color’. Examples: Historically we’ve described native Americans as having ‘red skins’ though they don’t have red skins. Currently 9 out of 10 Native Americans support the use of Red Skins as a name for a football team. In the 1940’s the term ‘yellow pearl’ referenced fear of a Japanese invasion of the West coast after Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese.
English references ‘color ‘ in many ways pertinent both to individuals and groups of people. The term ‘black heart’ references morbidity and sorrow. “White hats’ and ‘black hats’ references the good guys versus the bad guys. Tom Mix always wore a white hat for example.
References to black and white in general goes back thousands of years. Take early Judeo-Christian religion. Light refers to what’s good and darkness refers more to evil and that which is bad. The Light of the World, a reference to Jesus Christ, references light as good.
How about black. Are blacks actually ‘black’? Not according to their DNA according to some research. There’s research that one-third of all USA born Afro-American men have some ‘white’ DNA. Ms. Ayana Pressley, one of four ‘women of color’ whom Trump tweets recently (WSJ 7/15/19) is African-American.
What are these ‘women of color’ doing?
These four ‘women of color’ seek to connect their definition of ‘color’ with racism. The world out there is racist per their view and they as victims speak out against all that ‘racism’. Interestingly, they individually and collectively rail against Israel.
What do we know about these four:
Ms. Omar, the only one of the four born outside the U.S. came as a child from Somalia. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is of Puerto Rican heritage. Ms. Tliab is Palestinian-American and Ms. Pressley is African-American.
What do they say? Racism, racism everywhere and worst in America say these ‘women of color’.
Progressive Democrats and much of mainstream media beat the drums of racism as central and integral to the fabric of America.
They need to broaden their life experiences. Let all these progressives and liberals who are not liberal go live in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, China and Russia for a couple years.
Then come back and discuss their experience of freedom in those countries compared to America.
These four ‘women of color’ whine. And then they dine on the American fruits of freedoms which come only from the U.S. Constitution.
