An interesting perspective from the daughter of a world-renowned feminist.

Viewing The Color Purple was a turning point in my awareness of misandry. My mother and other black women were raving about the movie, but when I saw it, it sickened me that all the black men were depicted as evil, callous, or at best buffoonish.

I knew then as a teenager, that something was gravely amiss. In retrospect, that film did me a favor by opening my eyes to the notions of feminism and female supremacy, especially the black variants.

I've always known Alice Walker was a demonic, female supremacist witch. Her daughter removes all doubt that this is true.

I had the same reaction with Amy Tan's movie: "The Joy Luck Club." All the Asian men are caricatured as buffoons and wife-abusers, but most of the Asian women are portrayed as 'heroes.' It made me sick to my stomach...

I hate self-hating minorities but I especially hate self-hating minority females the most--for them bashing their own race and making it popular in White society e.g. The Color Purple and The Joy Luck Club.
