Understood, but I am not saying that people sit around and intentionally plot how to support white supremacy. I'm saying that we have been unconsciously socialized to support and defend it. That socialization is reflected in how they navigate race, sexism, and through their interactions with black women. It doesn't matter if they're unaware of the tools of white supremacy or patriarchy because it doesn't change the fact that through media and perpetuated misconceptions they have learned how to service them.

“Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender.” I come with truth because I care more about the world than I should.
