Progressive Leftist Demands Reparations for ‘Fat Black Bitches’

Ashleigh Shackelford

Identity politics meets jumping the shark in an opinion piece in Wear Your Voice, Ashleigh Shackelford, who describes herself (Am I able to say “herself” without sounding insensitive?) as a queer, agender, Black fat femme writer, artist and cultural producer, writes:

Real talk: I’m exhausted with the idea that fat Black bitches have to take care of everybody. Like, full stop.

I’m tired of everyone expecting something from me. Whether it’s using me as inspiration porn, using me as dissuasion porn (read: someone to never look like or love/like/fuck), to people eating off my flesh for their own resilience, support or power: fuck you, pay me.

Let me be clear, though: when I say, “Fuck you, pay me,” I mean, “FUCK YOU. PAY ME.” Pay me a check, pay me consistently, provide me safe housing, offer me a job with benefits, run me those Beyonce tickets, finance my clothes and wigs and aesthetics, cultivate accessibility to spaces and provide seats that fit me, see and validate my humanity.

Shackleford uses the following graphic in an attempt to make her point why she is entitled to other people’s hard-earned money. And you have to admit, it’s really convincing (ROFLMAO!):

This is what you get in a country where one of two major political parties — the Democrat Party in this particular case — makes victims of every possible group, sub-group, and now, sub, sub, sub, group of people, giving almost anyone a reason to feel discriminated against so that they have only one place to turn to — big government as promoted by the Democrat Party.
