BM Cartoonist at Wesley College who Got a Pass for Dissing Us!!


If he were white this shit would be trending on social media, I fucking hate the black community. There was a cartoon that depicted this theme, I think I posted it here before. It was a drawing of a black woman, a black man and a white man.

The white man made a derogatory statement towards the black woman and the black woman called him all types of names, but when the black man did it she was "That's okay I still love my black men" that cartoon was 100% accurate. 

Black women have this undying loyalty to black men they don't even have with other black women. It's clear many black women internalize misogynoir and patriarchy with their men before any and everything mentality. No other group does this but black women, it's really pathetic.

Black man makes racist cartoon about black women!

Racist Cartoons In College Newspaper Spark Outrage Among Students

A Wesley College student said the offensive images are an example of the racial divide on campus.

Wesley College students are speaking out against the school’s independently-run student newspaper, The Whetstone, after it published two racially offensive cartoons Friday.
The first cartoon features a caricature of a black woman saying, “Would you look at the time… I’m late for my abortion” while wearing a shirt that reads “Black Lives Matter.” The second drawing depicts a gardening hoe asking a black man “Who is you calling a hoe?” The man in the cartoon responds “I’m sorry ma’am, you just look like a hoe.”

 Bryheim Muse, a black student, created these images that some are calling racist and sexist.

While some students took the cartoons — drawn by Bryheim Muse, a black man — as a joke, others found it racist and sexist. Shaylynn Bivens, vice president of the university’s black student union, sent a statement to The Huffington Post about the problematic nature of the drawings, especially when a racial divide already exists on campus.
“We have worked hard, especially black women, to defy and break down all of the stereotypes that were thrown at us,” she said in the statement. “It is humiliating to know that we were dehumanized by a fellow African-American male. He essentially gave the white students a reason to disrespect and think less of us. That comic promotes hate speech.”
Student William Johnson told WPOC that the offensive images have only hindered the progress other black students on the Dover, Delaware, campus have worked towards.
“It kind of degrades us as a people, saying that we don’t understand everything that we stand behind, so I do feel that he shouldn’t have put that up,” Johnson said.
In response to the backlash, the administration and newspaper hosted a forum on Monday. Muse and the newspaper’s editor-in-chief Kristen Griffith, who is also black, addressed the issue surrounding the cartoon.
Muse told HuffPost via email that his cartoon was meant to “show the hypocrisy of our people,” by juxtaposing the Black Lives Matter movement with the number of black women who get abortions.
“I personally don’t know any blacks that were killed by police, but I can name at least five that I do personally know that killed other blacks or were killed by other blacks,” Muse said. “The solution to fixing our problems is not waiting for another black man or women to die so we can go protest. The solution is to teach them God’s commandments to prevent future problems from happening. If our people kept God’s laws, that would solve the bulk of problems we face in our communities.”
Muse also said that most of the backlash he received outside of the forum was on social media, not other students. He added that “there is no racial divide” on campus and that the controversy is “healthy for our people.”
Student Tiffany Griffin said she wasn’t satisfied with the forum. She told HuffPost that several students felt the administration wasn’t taking the matter seriously. So she, along with Bivens and Damyra Price, created a list of demands which they said they plan on presenting to University President Robert Clark in a meeting on Thursday. Griffin tweeted the letter they submitted to Clark on Tuesday.
Shortly after Griffin tweeted the letter, Clark sent a university-wide message on Tuesday saying that the cartoon is “in no way reflective of the beliefs or values” of Wesley College. He extended an apology and said he’s open to engaging with the leaders of different student groups about how to bridge the racial divide on campus.
“The cartoon being published was the catalyst for a lot of bigger issues at Wesley,” Griffin told HuffPost. “[S]ome small and long term goals need to be put into place to relieve this unrest that has actually been brewing for years now.”
Griffin said the school still has plenty of issues regarding race to address, but she hopes their meeting with Clark will lead to solutions and motivate administrators to become more empathetic.

Stereotyping is only for black women.

 

 

Every day black women are told to go against stereotypes rather than we as a human beings address those who love to stereotype people. When it comes to other groups, we have no problem yelling out “Let them be who they are, and it’s you that’s the problem”.

But when it comes to black women, we duck our heads in shame, turn our noses up, frown our brows and shake our heads when we come across black women we consider stereotypical. The thing is, there’s no such thing as a stereotype. Stereotypes are basically an open book judgment riddled in respectability politics. They were created to make those who are discriminatory, bigoted and judgmental feel comfortable.

It’s the same as classism, racism, and discrimination. The word stereotype or stereotypes were create to shame and force people, specifically minorities, into obedience and status quo under white supremacist structures. To police people of color. Notice no other group is force fed the idea of stereotypes outside of black people, specifically black women.

But I have to say, we, as a community, embrace what we consider stereotypical black men, by societal standards. Don’t call them thugs. Don’t call them uneducated. We protest against laws like the sagging pants law because we believe it’s discrimination against black men and their freedom of individuality and identity, and so forth. We make sure to defend them and deem them as human, freedom of expression, and freedom to live as they choose to.

But when it comes to black women, we make sure to shame black women as much as possible to conform in order to reject stereotypes because of the way society perceives women and black people. There’s no defending of black girls from the hood. Black girls without education. Black girls who dress and wear their hair as they please because freedom of individuality on black women is just another display of “ghetto”. Black women and girls are not allowed to live as we choose.

This is why black women fear being stereotyped, to the point we police each other.

A horrifying reality: The black community supports rape culture, and predatory behavior towards young girls

I was exposed to the most gut wrenching, terrifying thing ever. If many of you aren't aware, Erykah Badu made some gross comments about the discussion of young girls being sexualized by adult men in schools. She basically danced around everything until she finally admitted that it was perfectly logical for a grown man to be attracted to a young girl.

Not only did people support her, but most shockingly BLACK PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY BLACK MEN. The same community and race that loves to chalk child predatory behavior up to being a white thing, are the one's who agreed with her comments the most. 

I'm not going to right click save or screen shot because I don't want it saved on my computer, but all you have to do is go to her Twitter page.

I have to say it...

I find it HILARIOUS to see so many pro-black men and women scramble to make sure nothing becomes of the situation, when there’s a story about a white man or a non-black man openly supporting black women.
Most of us don’t even date IR, and probably won’t but the fear is hilarious to witness, lmao.
Like some of you are so afraid of black women doing what black men are doing right now, by dating who they want to ( I say they for the sistas who are considering their options or who already do date IR) and start dating out, because you all know you can’t control and tell black men what to do because they are gonna date who they want to. And by hell many of yall support it.
So the last grasp of hope is to tell black women to stay put and anchor this fake ass form of solidarity at the expense of our happiness and mental health. The fear of black women dating white men or non-black men in droves at the rate of black men dating white and non-black women, terrifies the hell out of a lot of you so you all play inspector gadget on the white dude to make sure black women never even consider the thought of dating IR.
Black women as a collective saying “Fuck it” finally scares a lot of people and it’s absolutely hilarious to watch.
It’s insane to me how many you take a break from your annual “Black women ain’t shit, black women are embarrassing, black women are this and black women are that” to bombard any episode of some white dude or non-black dude paying black women respect and support to promote this fake ass concern trolling when it’s really many of you making black women stay put and not entertain the idea of interracial dating.
How come yall don’t do this to black men? Yall too busy defending any white or non-black woman who pay a brotha a smidgen of dust. It don’t matter how many receipts yall have on em, as long as they like brothas. Yall don’t care about black men dating the rainbow and procreating with other races, but Lord no don’t let a sista do it, now everybody turning into chicken little. We’re suppose to play community anchor while you all constantly bash us at the same time?
Though I don’t put non-black men on a pedestal or no man on a pedestal for that matter, I just find it interesting how black people all of sudden become concerned for us when they think we’re possibly entertaining the idea of being interested in other races of men.
Yall be like “Black bitch this, ghetto hoodrat that, black women this and that” one lone white boy say black women are beautiful, and then all of sudden yall be like “Oh sista motha Africa, don’t you know this is a white supremacist demon in disguise trying to lure you away from what’s really important?”
Fuck that, black women/girls do what you want to. If they really cared for us they’d care for us all the time. Meanwhile we’re forced to wear blind folds for the sake of solidarity when we call out the misogynoir black men perpetuate towards us, you know for the sake of solidarity and shit **eye roll**

Finally!!!:There’s Officially A Congressional Caucus On Black Women And Girls

Three black women in congress made history on Tuesday when they announced the formation of the first and only Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls.
U.S. Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) and Yvette D. Clarke (D-N.Y.) confirmed the news in a press release issued by the U.S. House of Representatives. The release described the caucus as a group devoted to creating public policy that “eliminates significant barriers and disparities experienced by black women.” 
The formation of the caucus marks a hugely significant moment for minority communities as it is the first of 430 registered congressional caucuses and member organizations that is specifically designed to make black women and girls a priority.

“Black women and girls are disproportionately affected by myriad [of] socioeconomic issues that diminish their quality of life and threaten the well-being of their families and communities,” Rep. Kelly said in a release obtained by The Huffington Post.
“The Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls gives black women a seat at the table for the crucial discussion on the policies that impact them while also providing a framework for creating opportunities and eliminating barriers to success for black women,” she added.
The caucus was inspired by Ifeoma Ike, the co-founder of Black and Brown People Vote, and a collective of six other women involved in the #SheWoke committee which is comprised of leading black women activists who consistently advocate for black women’s rights, including Ike, Nakisha M. Lewis, Tiffany D. Hightower, Shambulia Gadsden Sams, Sharisse Stancil-Ashford, Dr. Avis Jones-DeWeever and Sharon Cooper.
Lewis shared the news on Twitter Tuesday: 
Collectively, these women along with members of congress helped to launch a caucus that will aim to address issues important among black women, like economic equity, education, wellness and safety, among others.
“We want to get everyone, including our sisters, aware of where we statistically fall within these issues. Knowledge is definitely power,” Ike told The Huffington Post. “We’re looking at this space as one of idea-sharing and policy creation. We’re making sure we’re included as a demographic that deserves to be addressed.”
The caucus said in the press release it aims to achieve similar success in the lives of black women and girls that President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative has done for black men and boys. Ike, who worked to help form Obama’s well-respected campaign, expects to apply her expertise and share her experiences as she helps to execute the mission of the new caucus.
“I felt like I was supporting my brother but I didn’t feel like my story or any of my sister’s stories were included,” Ike said of her experience working for the My Brother’s Keeper campaign to The Huffington Post. “Through this work, and meeting other dynamic women, it’s very important, especially in this political climate, that politicians look at our issues. By addressing black women, you address everyone.” 
“Black women deserve a voice in a policy making process that frequently minimizes, or altogether ignores the systemic challenges they face.” Rep. Watson Coleman
Ike said the idea for both the caucus and the #SheWoke committee came about during a conversation in her apartment earlier this year, which, among other topics, touched on recent developments in the case of Sandra Bland. Two days later, the #SheWoke committee was formed as was a petition which called on congress members to create a space that puts black women’s issues at the forefront.
“March 22nd will undoubtedly be an emotionally charged day for my family,” said Cooper, Bland’s sister and fellow #SheWoke member, in the release. “Brian Encinia, the officer charged with perjury in my sister Sandra’s case, will be arraigned in a Texas court the same day. Sandra’s case has served as the reverberating wake up call that we cannot treat these situations as one-offs or isolated incidents.”
Cooper said in the release that the elected officials who make up the chairs of the congressional caucus responded with urgency, and they are fully committed to the group’s mission.
“Black women deserve a voice in a policy making process that frequently minimizes, or altogether ignores the systemic challenges they face,” Rep. Watson Coleman said in the release. “This caucus will speak up for them.”
The launch reception of the Congressional Caucus on Black Women and Girls will be held on April 28 in Washington, D.C.
