Iggy Azalea on Miley Cyrus: “I’ve been twerking onstage for two-and-a-half years. She probably fucking watched my videos and decided to try it.”
White girl mad that another white girl is more successful appropriating black culture / exploiting black bodies onstage. lawl.
I am not a fan of Richard Dawkins. I think he represents the arrogant White supremacist patriarchal atheist who believes, ignorantly, that not believing in god is the same as moral perfection. There are racist atheists. There are homophobic atheists. There are sexist atheists. The atheist community, like all communities, has to grapple with the ways in which we perpetuate oppression outside of the concept of god. What is on the horizon is a new group of atheists who want to take an intersectional approach to our activism. We want to call out the fact that the “age of enlightenment” coincided with the “age of scientific racism”. We are under no delusions. The absence of belief in god does not necessarily make for a more humane or just world. Certainly, religion has often been behind some of the most horrific tragedies in human history, but if we believe that the world will become peaceful once we remove religions we are deluded. We still have to grapple with patriarchy, we still have to grapple with classism, we still have to grapple with white supremacy. I am proud to be a social justice atheist, and I can’t wait for men like Richard Dawkins to get with the program or get out of the way.
