Bros before Hoes
I could not believe this image the first time I saw it (which was a few seconds ago). All I can say is wow. It's crazy that misogyny, patriarchy, and the overwhelming concept that race always comes first has created such an image (which is in reference to such an important political event). I know that some may just think its a cute little thing. However, for me I see the western worlds historical views, cultural values, and social hierarchy between race and gender clearly being displayed.
Western World Social and Cultural Values in Simple Mathematical Equations:
Male > Female
White > Black
White Male > Black Male > White Female (this one can be a little tricky depending on the situation at hand)
Black Male > Black Female < White Female
White Male > White Female
Black Male > White Female
Race > Gender
