While flocks of women are reliving and telling tales of their disturbing experiences with alleged Hollywood predator Harvey Weinstein, one of Buzzfeed’s woke black writers has other things on her mind; the lack of diversity of his victims.
In an article for Buzzfeed titled “There’s an elephant in Harvey Weinstein’s hotel room”, Feminist Bim Adewunmi laments the fact that all of Harvey’s victims are white, and argues that the reason black women do not get leading roles in movies is because they are often seen as “not fuckable” by producers.
She argues that while the sexual assault allegations against Harvey are mainly being an issue about sexual harassment, they are also an issue about race:
The elephant in the room in discussions about the alleged crimes and misdemeanors of Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein looks eerily similar to an elephant of the past. It is the Race elephant.
I would think not being considered a desirable trophy by a sexual predator is a good thing… but that’s just me.
…many of them to get half as far in twice the time it takes their white counterparts. To be deemed “fuckable” is not the honor a certain kind of man (and woman) believes it to be, but the ideas of fuckability are entrenched…
…I guess we should be alarmed that a serial sexual harasser didn’t incorporate diversity into his harassment escapades.
pff… Get lost!
