Dea Win: Woman to Woman: An Open Letter From One Feminist to Another

 

image

By: Dea Win, Pretty Girls Rock Dresses, Inc.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to see Red Tails. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. What's not to like about the Tuskegee Airmen story? A compelling story, beautiful black men, action, and war is what Red Tails is all about.

A film finally depicting Black men shown with dignity, pride, and heroism. It made me proud to see a Hollowood glammed up story about a big piece of our history. I left the theatre swooning over Nate Parker and cheering my love Aaron McGruder for his contributions to the movie.

I was surprised to wake up the next morning to learn that a group of black women are boycotting Red Tails. Their gripe with the film was the lack of Black women – more specifically, the fictional love story between Thunder and a young German woman.

Ladies, this is not a history lesson -- this is a movie for fun.

Why can't our men have a movie for themselves? This is a wonderful film for our boys and men. Do you ladies remember how excited we were when Princess and the Frog came out? Little girls finally had a princess to look up to with pride in Princess Tiana. I feel that Red Tails is a great story for our little boys and men.

It would have been great to see sisters represented in the film. We all know that the Tuskegee Airmen had the tremendous support of their mothers, wives, sisters, and girlfriends. Red Tails made mention of a wife and child when one of the young men went missing. Some of the men even rocked wedding bands – but that’s beside the point.

Sisters, this film was for our men. This film has little to do with the constant tug-of-war we choose to pursue. This was a war film with a diverse cast.

Instead of complaining about the lack of Black feminine representation, why don't we celebrate the positive representation? I read somewhere that George Lucas has two more scripts: a prequel (I’m sure there will be a need for women) and a sequel (after the war -- and again, I am sure there will be a need for women). These films can only be made if we support Red Tails!

Let's not miss out on an awesome opportunity to support some of our finest black actors.

Woman to Woman!

I can't help but believe that the market for products with photos imprinted on them, now made accessible by the Internet, represents a truly enormous opportunity. It seems like the internet today is almost entirely full of nothing but funny pictures and videos that people use to pass their days. While almost every cat is a work of aesthetic beauty, they are often animals that combine silliness and a fierce disposition.

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
