    Yes, let's disregard valid points people have just because they happen to say something stupid as well!

      That's just it. A statement isn't automatically a valid point because you put quote marks around it.

      Especially when the person who thinks that there's an "imperialist white supremacist patriarchal culture," is an extreme racist herself. I'm pretty sure you don't take what other racists have to say about race relations very seriously, so I don't see what is different in this situation. Hooks has a bias far beyond what is reasonably healthy.

      So no, I don't think Hooks' statement is valid. It is hyperbolical lunacy.

        No one is agreeing that we have to critique white supremacist patriarchy because it has quotation marks around it. People are agreeing with it because it's true.
