Why isn't the black community following the Rekia Boyd trial?


Did any of you even know a trial was going on? There is very little posts about this trial anywhere other than in the Chicago news. I'm floored, I'm so floored at the lack of concern for black female lives in the black community and . There's an instant update when something happens to black men, but not black female victims of any type of crime. Black lives only matter if you're a cis hetero black man.

In typical black athlete news: Marshawn Lynch says "Light skin women only"

Now a days I'm like oh well, because it's so common for black men to discriminate against dark skin women. But I find it ironic it's always black men of a brown to dark shade saying this.

That's why I feel sorry for dark skin sistas because we shout the most how we love us some dark chocolate and milk chocolate, but they sure don't feel the same about you/us.

Yall gone learn today sistas!

Marshawn Lynch in Colorism Controversy for Saying He Prefers Women with Light Skin and Curly Hair

 

Before he was a Superbowl Champ, Seattle Seahawks running back, Marshawn Lynch was fined $100,000 for refusing to talk to the press and uttering the phrase heard around the world, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.”

Obviously the reporters we’re asking Lynch the wrong questions because he knows how to be very vocal when it comes to women and music.
Lynch most recently spoke with Vanessa Satten of XXL Magazine about a variety of topics from his favorite music to listen to in the morning, when he works out and on game day. As well as how his words impact the community in his native city of Oakland, CA.
The interview was pretty ordinary until Satten asked Lynch to name his “hottest 10 women right now.” The list included many industry standards of African American beauty including Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. In addition to singers Cassie, Mya, Tinashe, Netta Brielle, Jennifer Lopez, rapper Dej Loaf and actress Sanaa Lathan.

The internet has been crying foul over Lynch’s subsequent statement when Satten asked him did he have any “bonuses” for the list? His reply, “Anything with curly hair, fair skin, pretty-ass teeth and a sexy-ass personality, that’s probably number one. She ain’t got to have no name behind her but she’s somewhere out there.” When Satten requested he clarify the statement he continued, “…I said fair-skinned. That’s like on a summer day she’s gonna be a little bit more brown, and then when it’s cold outside, she probably be a little bit on her way to being light-skinned but not light-skinned.”
GASPS! Do we really care about Lynch’s preferences in women? Does he validate the existence and importance of dark skin women? No. So is this internet kerfuffle much ado about nothing? Yes. Is he using his platform in the media to further reiterate the age old “dark skin” versus “light skin” debate? You decide.

Are we talking about Natasha McKenna?


A mentally ill woman who died after a stun gun was used on her at the Fairfax County jail in February was restrained with handcuffs behind her back, leg shackles and a mask when a sheriff’s deputy shocked her four times, incident reports obtained by The Washington Post show.


Natasha McKenna initially cooperated with deputies, placed her hands through her cell door food slot and agreed to be handcuffed, the reports show. But McKenna, whose deteriorating mental state had caused Fairfax to seek help for her, then began trying to fight her way out of the cuffs, repeatedly screaming, “You promised you wouldn’t hurt me!” the reports show.

Then, six members of the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team, dressed in white full-body biohazard suits and gas masks, arrived and placed a wildly struggling 130-pound McKenna into full restraints, their reports state. But when McKenna wouldn’t bend her knees so she could be placed into a wheeled restraint chair, a lieutenant delivered four 50,000-volt shocks from the Taser, enabling the other deputies to strap her into the chair, the reports show.

The account comes from dozens of pages of sheriff’s deputy incident reports that provide the first complete account of the events leading to the death of the 37-year-old Alexandria mother that has troubled her family and local mental health advocates.

Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid declined to comment on the case but defended the use of a stun gun on a restrained prisoner, saying it was “a means that is often useful to ensure the safety of a person” rather than using physical force to gain compliance. She said stun guns were used “occasionally” on prisoners who are already restrained.

But four law enforcement experts interviewed by The Post questioned why a Taser was used on a restrained woman, how many times she was shocked and whether handling a mentally ill person with such force was the best approach.

Another black female victim of police brutality, and still not a care in the world from the black community


Teen Girl Left with Broken Bones, Missing Teeth After Cops Stopped Her for Having a Conversation




St. Louis, MO — 19-year-old Kenisha Gray is now recovering from multiple broken bones and missing teeth after reportedly being brutally assaulted and tasered by St. Louis PD.
According to police, Gray was having a conversation in the middle of an intersection holding up traffic, then ran when approached by officers.
Police claim she was caught and handcuffed, but somehow managed to escape from the back of the police car. Officers say Gray was injured after they were forced to taser the teen, causing her to fall forward.
“That’s a lie,” Williams said. “I don’t see how she could hit face first, and she got all of this messed up on her face. I don’t understand, if she hit face first, she wouldn’t have had all this on her face. I can’t believe this.”

Black women are white people's scapegoat to be racist towards black people



They know they can't bash black men, because the entire black community will be at their front doors with pitch forks and flaming sticks. But no one gives a damn about black women. We're viewed the same way as chewed gum under an old dirty tennis shoe. People just don't give two fucks. I mean who gives a damn about a black person who's a woman, or a woman who's black? According to society, that person is like the bottom feeder of the human race.

White people know black women aren't protected. They know the only way to satisfy their racist urges is to target black women, the most unprotected, unloved species on the planet. And it's not because they hate black men more, or we aren't the intended target, oh we are the intended target, and all the damn time, but because they know they can get away with it.

The only time we oppose racism against black women, is if other black women are doing the speaking out about it. And those black women are very few and far between themselves. Otherwise, no one cares about people treating black women like subhumans. We're already seen as subhuman so many think it's a normality to treat us as such.

You can tell white people use black women as racism targets, because all you have to do is check the comments under black female entertainers articles or videos.

Azealia Banks (I told you all on here, many times there are black women I use multiple times as examples, because they are perfect candidates for every black female discussion you can think of) is one of those black women. All you have to do is check her videos and watch the white people bring up her speaking out against racism as a reason to call her a reverse racist (they're so dumb, they're admitting racism is real, while they're sitting up here making up stuff), and type their hate filled anti-black comments. It's pretty obvious most of those comments are built up anger from not being able to express their racist beliefs like they could before.

This is why black men are used for experimental purposes for intra-racism, because this allows black men to continue to hate and be spiteful towards black women. When black men hate black women, it's less likely that black women will be protected by the community. White men overwhelmingly put white women on a pedestal so they're always protected and coddled in their community, sans sexism. But not black women. Our community doesn't give a damn if we sink or swim. White people absolutely love the idea of black men hating black women as they would a black person. This frees up a group of black people they can inflict their racist beliefs on freely without punishment.

Despite black women on social media, responding to things we believe is racist discrimination towards black women, most people are always claiming that we overreact, complain too much, or flat out don't care. They tell us it's just a joke or it doesn't make someone racist, even though the act itself was racist. No one takes black women's cries of racism seriously, which is why people can still be racist and discriminatory towards black women.

Racism against black women in Cosmopolitan magazine!



volmarrr:
Cosmo not so subtly tells readers “paler is better”







I have been the voice of telling black women to stop supporting those who don't support you. But black women are so freaking hard headed, wanting to fit in and follow the crowd, some of us don't listen.

Why continue to support stuff like this? Just like many of us have been trying to get some of you sistas to boycott these rappers and entertainers who've said slick ignorant shit about black women, yet they're still selling out shows and gaining more fans day by day. I want to give up sometimes because black women's mind are made up, we're too worried about appeasing others so we defend and support them like watch dogs, it's disgusting.

Meanwhile, magazines like Cosmopolitan can continue to do this to us (and other women of color).

When black women accept scraps from ignorant intra-racist black men

**facepalm** And those Stockholm syndrome having sistas are probably the main one's accusing black women of being "desperate" just for saying thank you when a white/bedwenches man compliments their beauty.

This is the true definition of Stockholm syndrome.





Doesn’t matter if the black men are gay, straight, bisexual, dark skin, light skin, tall, short, fat, skinny, whatever. This shit irks my soul. And it’s ironic he has Trayvon, Emitt Till, and Dr. King as his headliner. He has the audacity but why am I not shocked?
This shit right here just annoys the hell out of me. A black man made a comment saying “Black women always have attitudes like their hair don’t grow” and the black girl posted a picture of her natural long hair to prove him wrong.
I’m thinking she was going to drag his ignorant ass underneath the post, but she sitting there smiling and blushing after he was satisfied with providing him visual eye candy and still went on to make another ignorant similar statement. Then another one couldn’t let his ego compliment her right off and made a similar joke.
Black women view black men like their boss at work. They want to make sure they supply him with satisfactory all times, even if it comes at the expense of their humiliation because they place them on such a high pedestal.
I need to start instilling some self esteem in some of our sistas so that they can pass it along to the next one, because this shit right here is embarrassing. It’s funny because when ignorant white boys say some shit like that, black women are all in their mentions cursing them the slap out and calling them racist fucks. I wish black women would start checking intra-racist black men.
