I haven't got time to read this article at the moment, but to someone who has read it is this use of the word "white" appropriate?

See the eighth page (pg 239). According to Matthews, the women interviewed who were apart of the Black Panthers held several criticisms of Women's Liberation Movement; that they didn't address class struggle or national liberation, that they faced dramatically different challenges given the different demographics (black, working-class and predominantly white, middle-class) and some had a tendency towards anti-male and female separatism which they disagreed with. The two references cited are:

32. Anon., "Panther Sister's on Women's Liberation" in Off the Pigs!, ed., Heath, 348; "Sisters", The Black Panther, 13 September 1969, 12.
