“Huffington Post” South Africa featured contributor Shelley Garland’s write up alluding to denying white men of their voting rights. For the record, Garland’s a political activist who is “working on ways to smash the patriarchy.”
In her post, she posed the following question: “Could It Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?”

“It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them,” Garland wrote. “If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened,” she added. “It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely—the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world.”
Garland singled out white males for enabling President Trump to be in power. Apparently, they were also the cause for BREXIT.
“The influence of reckless, white males [was] one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession, which began in 2008,” she ranted. “This would also strike a blow against toxic, white masculinity—one that is long needed.”
There was also her lines entailing anyone but white men having wealth. In Garland’s opinion, they should be blocked from having political power too. “The violence of white-male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past. … Although this may seem unfair and unjust, allowing white males to continue to call the shots politically and economically, following their actions over the past 500 years, is the greater injustice.”
