Salon: “Scarlett Johansson and the perils of white feminism”

ghost“When faced with charges of racism, both [Tilda] Swinton and [Scarlett] Johansson have deflected, saying, in essence, ‘It’s hard to be a white woman too!’

“Want to know what’s harder? Being a woman of color. Where you will get paid less than white men and white women for doing the same job, and where you will get fewer opportunities because you have extra melanin in your skin.” —Salon
