Be careful who you’re marching behind at the next Women’s March
Excerpt: The annual Women’s March is supposed to showcase the power of the sisterhood when it takes to the streets in peace and solidarity against President Trump’s agenda. But which sisters you march behind matters. According to The New York Times, two women who are now national Women’s March leaders — Tamika Mallory, a black gun control activist, and Carmen Perez, a Latina criminal justice reform activist — told Vanessa Wruble that she needed to confront Jewish racism before she could really understand the women’s protest movement. Wruble said she was ultimately pushed out of the organization, partly because of her Jewish identity. When asked for comment by the Times, Mallory issued this statement: “Since that conversation, we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, all Jews are targeted by it.” (When identity politics confronts identity politics; Act I Scene 4 of the train wreck we saw coming. --GS)
