“Could It Be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?” she asked Thursday in the title of her blog post.
“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,” according to Shelley Garland.
“If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened,” she explained. “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 blames white men for electing Donald Trump and voting for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.
“The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008,” she added. “This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.”
