Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy tweeted Wednesday, “White women: footsoldiers of the patriarchy,” along with what percentage of white women had voted for GOP Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis.
According to the results, 76 percent of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp, versus 24 percent for Democrat candidate Stacy Abrams.
In Texas, 59 percent of white women voted for Cruz versus 39 percent for Rep. Beto O’Rourke.
There was, however, no mention that Georgia, Texas, and Florida are red states that overwhelmingly voted Republican in the 2016 presidential race.
Eltahawy tweeted that white women were voting GOP “against their own interests” and allying “with white supremacist patriarchy.”
White women helped elect trump and tonight they helped elect DeSantis and Cruz. Time to stop pretending like they aren’t complicit in white supremacy because they cling to their victimhood

Absolutely shocking how many people are clogging my mentions with assumptions about my ethnicity, accusations of white supremacy and ad hom insults because I pointed out a basic inaccuracy in the line of thinking that all white women are bigots. Get your shit together, people.

Seeing people get so upset at white women for voting a particular way is quite interesting… it's racist, but it's interesting.
It goes to show that if you are not white and male, you are expected vote Democrat and anything outside of that is a deviation and intolerable.

Andrew Gillum just found out that the race card is no longer readily accepted in America.
You win with BETTER IDEAS. Not BLACKER SKIN.
