Counting To Ten!
I had to count to ten today afer reading the news today. Yup! Clarence Thomas's wife Virginia called Anita Hill to ask her to apologize to her husband. Should rape victims apologize to their perpetrators too Virginia?
Apparently, no one on the right side believes in normal decorum.
Well...Virginia on behalf of every single woman that has been a victim of jerks like your husband, I am demanding an apology from you. In addition, I demand that you and your husband apologize to Anita Hill. I pray that other women will stand up on behalf of Anita and flood you with letters demanding an apology to all women for your insult to womanhood.
Virginia Beach Republican Party chair Dave Bartholomew is openly letting us black and brown folks know that he thinks about us. Well...not quite openly, maybe he took the coward's route and put it in an email that he knew would get out. He is not fooling me! I'm sure he knows that emailing derogatory racial slurs do get out. BTW, Dave save your fake ass apology. We in the black and brown community have grown tired of apologies from folks like you, especially when we know that you don't mean them.
"MY DOG I went down this morning to sign up my Dog for welfare. At first the lady said, “Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare”. So I explained to her that my Dog is black, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and has no frigging clue who his Daddy is. So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify… My Dog gets his first check Friday. Is this a great country or what?" ~~Dave Barthlomew, GOP Virginia Beach Chair~~
Man up! Isn't that what your party has been yelling from the right side of the political spectrum? Why don't you practice what you preach? Oh...I see that Dave tried to kill two birds with one stone in his email and included those people who don't speak English. That's rich coming from a slimeball bigot like Dave. I hate to be the one to rain of Dave's parade, but Black and Brown folks are well aware that your party hates us and is full of bigots. We are reminded of it with this and this and this.
Hey...but the GOP and Teaparty folks are not racist. Nope, they are white supremacist!
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
