Imani Gandy (@AngryBlackLady) gave a speech at this year’s Abortion Care Network conference. She spoke on many important issues, including how Black women’s reproductive lives are portrayed by the media, the place of Black women and women of color in the movement, and the difference between pro-choice/reproductive rights and reproductive justice.

White women and black men have it both ways. They can act as oppressor or be oppressed. Black men may be victimized by racism, but sexism allows them to act as exploiters and oppressors of women. White women may be victimized by sexism, but racism enabled them to act as exploiters and oppressors of black people. Both groups have led liberation movements that favor their interests and support the continued oppression of other groups. Black male sexism has undermined struggles to eradicate racism just as white female racism undermines feminist struggle. As long as these two groups or any group defines liberation as gaining social equality with ruling class white men, they have a vested interest in the continued exploitation and oppression of others.
