  • Re: Kerry Washington Tackles Black "Homophobia" in GLAAD Speech...

    Dope speech

    Regardless of your beliefs

    We have a public health crisis on our hands

    The homeless and incarceration rate of gay youth has sky rocketed the last 30, 40 years

    And compared to straight youth, they are at greater risk for violence and other abuse once incarcerated or homeless

    The rates of suicide attempts among gay youth have been found to be higher than rates among youth than heterosexual youth

    Closeted gay men have help exabberate the spread of HIV

    And it's because of homophobia

    It's a plague same as the other isms

    Better yet how can we say all black lives matter than devalue the lives of our gay brother and sisters

    My point is the movement is about empowering women in more ways than one

    But intially the movement began as a means to empower women politically and economically




    Honestly, I'm betting most of the dudes on here have no problem with and even applaud the bold, even the ones that don't care for feminists.

    I think we'd be surprised

    They would have equal representation already if it was that easy

    There is a difference between the overall power structure and the average man. I seriously doubt the average dude has a problem with women getting the same pay for the same work. That doesn't mean the people at the top, male or female, are going to push that when it will cut into their profit margin.

    People really need to start understanding the difference between what the general can do or are doing versus what the powers that be are doing.

    i get what you are saying

    but we are cogs in this machine

    the average man is the one doing the hiring, interviewing, scouting etc. in these male dominated industries, for example

    Jamaica has a female prime minister

    1. What's ur point? Lol

    We have a blk president does that mean we live in a post race soceity? No


    2. And for the feminism is not responsible for the breakdown of the blk family

    Just stop

    The number one indicator that a man will marry and stay married is his finances

    With the ongoing struggle against employment discrimination and unfair judicial practices that have branded blk men felons, further limiting work opportunities, it should come as no surprise that the blk community has the lowest marriage rate of any other racial demographic

    By placing blame on feminism, you are doing us all a disservice

    It takes our attention from the industrial prison complex and racist instutional practices that actually do break apart blk families and leaves these broken families vulnerable

  • Re: Everyone is outraged at EVERYTHING: is this just the beginning....


    Its to be expected with the emergence of social media

    Everyone has a voice now

    It can be overwhelming, and some people are just bitching to bitch

    Is every time a Fox News contributor says anything remotely racist cause for a petition and protests outside their headquarters? lol if that's the case we're going to walking around in a constant state of rage

    And people usually disdirect their anger and energy at the wrong ppl, cause

    But I'm glad people are emotional, rather than just living

    That's worst

    Apathy leads to stagnation

    And all things considered, we have a lot to be angry about ... That is if you aren't an affluent white man

  • Re: ASAP Ferg "Racism Is Only Five Generations Ago— It's Been Over."

    Here in America classism and racism are inextricably inked

    Class will never truly take precedence over race until we put an end to institutional practices like redlining in the banking, lending, credit, and the housing industries, the disproportionate discipline of black children in the education system, and the asynchronous jailing of black people in the “war” on drugs, gentrification, etc

    I can understand why a white person would try to minimize the impacts of racism, and try to make it into a rich vs the poor thing .... But for a blk person to go around speaking this nonsense is beyond ignorant
