Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory (pictured above left) wrote an angry op-ed published Friday in the Huffington Post, titled “White Women: Stop Waiting for Black Women to Save You.”
Mallory, who in the past attended a rally led by the racist and anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, began her piece with an attack on Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), as The Daily Wire noted.
Addressing Collins’ Senate vote, which sealed Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s place on the nation’s highest court, Mallory wrote, “Last week, Sen. Susan Collins doubled down on white supremacy and patriarchy in America. Women and survivors of all genders will never forgive her for it. In a 43-minute speech last Friday, Collins managed to dismiss survivors, argue in favor of a man accused of sexual assault, and advance [President] Donald Trump’s white supremacist political agenda.”
Mallory used this as a stepping stone to blast all white women: “Like many people of color, on a gut level, I expected this outcome. We’ve seen the system (and white women) fail us over and over again.”
We need white women to get comfortable with discomfort, to check their fellow white women when they prop up white supremacy and white male patriarchy.

The angry and misguided activist then threw down a midterms gauntlet in her piece: “In November, we will replace rape apologists with the women the march inspired to run against them. In January 2019, we’re coming back with an agenda to end rape culture, white supremacy and patriarchy in America.”
Dear White Woman: You are not my ally if you get more upset w/ me than your own ppl when I bring up the 53% of voting white women who elected Trump. Until we see a clear change in this voting pattern, I’m gonna keep bringing it up. Remember, Roy Moore in Alabama was after Trump.

Mallory then said that white women will do anything to “protect the power” held by white men: “It’s time for white women who are outraged, marginalized and silenced to stand up and speak out for all of our rights. If [Brett] Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing exposed anything besides his belligerence and questionable grasp of the truth, it was that the power white men take for granted is under threat. And there are white women who will stop at nothing to protect it.”
Mallory gave white women a stark choice: ”We need them all to choose us, their fellow women, over the white men who hurt all of us, but who grant white women a little bit of power along the way.”
Mallory provocatively urged white women to “get comfortable with discomfort”: “We need them [white women] to get comfortable with discomfort, to check their fellow white women when they prop up white supremacy and white male patriarchy, to sacrifice their bodies and support our work with their dollars as well as their voices. That means showing up, and showing out, but also centering and lifting up our voices and experiences. It means voting for women of color who will fight to end rape culture, white supremacy and patriarchy.”
Mallory concluded: “In January 2019, we’re coming back with an agenda to end rape culture, white supremacy and patriarchy in America. Our p***y-grabbing president thinks we’ve given up. We haven’t. Over the last five weeks, we’ve rocked the foundation of the white male patriarchy.”
Then, Mallory lowered her boom: “And judging from their tantrums, white men (and the white women who support them) are starting to understand that their time in power is coming to an end.”
HuffPost refers to Mallory as “an esteemed social justice leader, advocate and activist,” The Daily Wire noted.
