Whenever discussions of feminism, women’s rights, or violence against minorities emerge, a group of people (with many common features) insist on keeping the argument trivial.
The argument is always the same: “Do we have to take the blame for someone else’s mistakes?” Here is my answer to you: Yes, you have to take the blame. We have to take the blame. And you know why? Because people who suffer from violence and experience inequality on a daily basis have been shouldering the blame for a long time. And now, the time has come for us to settle the score.
When I was younger, I insisted that there was no historical debt, because I had not been a slave owner.
