In an article deriding a black male feminist Elam calls African American specialty magazines, Ebony, Root and Jet ‘Plantation publications.’
Root, for those who don’t know, is what you might call a plantation publication. Similar to Jet and Ebony, it’s where black, male writers (known as Panda Bears) get to work as long as they don’t get uppity with the black, female feminists who actually run the farm.
A quick review of his work suggests he gets to work in the house, though.
We know many MRA’s are white nationalists and homophobes and here’s Elam suggesting Byron Hurt is a house slave because he has written about his experience with a father who was patriarchal and domineering.
And ‘panda bear’ is actually a slang term that gay men use to describe husky asian men or as a general term to describe an older man with a younger one. The only mention of ‘panda bear’ to represent a black male feminist was AVFM and this very racist article by Elam.
