#BelieveAllWomen 1889

#BelieveAllWomen 1889

Yeah, if we’re going to #BelieveAllWomen, we need to rethink how we consider and teach certain unpleasant parts of American people.  After all, those lynchings and the two massacres – Rosewood, FL and Tulsa, OK – that resulted from a Black male raping or trying to rape a White woman have to be taught in that context instead of the sole context of racism.

And yes, those Black males did rape or try to rape those White women. To believe anything else is to spit in the face of every female rape survivor in the world…as any of the vocal sorts of #MeToo will be sure to tell you at great length and with even greater vitriol. Remember, if accusation isn’t enough, you’re just a rape enabler.

So, if we’re going to believe them now and act upon those beliefs, we have to believe them then, and approach the lynching of Black rapists as merely an inappropriately extra-judicial response to these heinous crimes.

Yeah, think about that.

NFL Protesters Off-Season

All The NFL Protesters Off-Season

Yes, as we go into the 2nd season of the certain sorts of NFL players’ childish and offensive pre-game kneeling, it’s good to remember that these jumped-up ghetto thugs are never seen “protesting” anything during the off-season. No, if they can’t garner attention by offending the majority-White audience with their flagrant disrespect for all things American, they’re not interested.

Rebuked!

Rebuked In The Name Of Jesus!

Yeah, Kalen Allen’s shtick includes more than a little racism – and cultural appropriation since he’s not Southern – but he’s still “on point” to many foodies and he’s funny while doing it. And, frankly, even though the Philadelphia-born-and-raised, Los Angeles-living food critic isn’t from The South, just about everything he’s saying could, would, and probably has come out of the mouths of Southerns – White, Black, and/or Whatever – when we’ve seen “gentrified” Southern food recipes.
