    Black Voting Inside A Rigged System, Nov 2, 2018

    Bro. SOA, what's even worse are the words that are coming out of their mouths. I'm not saying all women have to be on board with the #MeToo movement, but get past the politics and call a pig a pig. Women who have been victimized, brutalized and dehumanized, deserve the right to be angry. Don't fault the messenger, focus on the message. I know women with sons are scared for them and rightfully so. But do the best you can as a parent to raise your sons up not to be and act like a Trumpette and they may never be involved in situations that can have his face hung on a poster as a misogynist.

    The O’Jays are hanging it up. Capping 50 years, 30 studio albums, and countless unforgettable cuts, the Ohio-bred hit squad has announced their final album, The Last Word, will arrive at the top of 2019.
    Today, they’ve released the first single from the album, “Above The Law,” along with the track’s politically-edged video, featuring clips of Colin Kaepernick, the Black Lives Matter protests, the swearing-in of Brett Kavanaugh as the country’s next Supreme Court justice, as well as Harvey Weinstein and the slew of sexual criminals that sparked #MeToo. The song was written by the legendary, Betty Wright, who noted the track “describes the habits and habitat of true menaces to society,” in a statement.

    I mean, yeah, it would be a really beautiful thing if it happened. Native Americans are owed a very fair share too. Racist attitudes are still very strong and widespread though, and tackling that needs to start happening now because America is on a pretty slippery slope with regards to race. The #MeToo movement and anti gun movement picked up a lot but it seems like black oppression is still being pretty much skirted int he media and in conversations. Perhaps as more racists come out in the open America is going to have no choice but to start confronting some of that ugliness.

    But I’m particularly challenged by this framing in the media #metoo.”
    she is frustrated with whom the media has picked out as the “leaders” of the #MeToo movement and how that erases not just her work but also its original focus on black and and brown women.

    “Since Trump and his appeal to toxic masculinity, and then the response to that in the form of #MeToo, there’s been a shift,” says Erin Cassese, an associate professor of political science at West Virginia University whose research focuses on gender in politics.

    #MeToo: Seal in hot water after taking on Oprah and “Hollywood hypocrisy”

    Seal, who has come out in support of the #MeToo movement, is now under investigation for sexual battery after a former neighbour accused him of forcing himself on her in 2016.

    This came after the singer launched an attack on Oprah Winfrey and her status as one of the leading advocates for the anti-sexual harassment initiative Time’s Up.

    After Blasting Oprah, #MeToo Comes For 'Seal

    Singer "Seal" may be on his way to kissing a rose on the grave of his career if the allegations of sexual battery against him turn out to be credible. Either that or a #MeToo conspiracy is brewing.

    Just days after blasting the newly crowned #MeToo queen Oprah for her alleged complicity regarding Harvey Weinstein, the #MeToo movement has come to claim the head of the "Crazy" singer.



    Not a good look for the Me Too.
    Will they go after any man that comes forward with some truth.
    A MeToo conspiracy is brewing.
    That’s white women, and Oprah acting/being powerful.
    Revenge is why some women can’t handle power.
    White women are vengeful.

    Trying to ruin men’s careers.

    This movement is getting crazy. The title is proof they went for Seal. What male celebrity will be next, as serial rapist, date rapist etc, are free to rape, as long as there is no harassment.

    ... In the fall of 1991, when the Senate was considering Thomas's nomination to the Supreme Court, Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he made sexually explicit comments and unwanted sexual advances when she worked for him at both the Department of Education and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But 27 years after Thomas's confirmation, Abramson, seeking to ride the #MeToo wave, tries to resuscitate these long-debunked allegations against Thomas.

    #METOO has become another weapon in the war that White Feminists have against the Patriarchy (White Men). They don't really care about what is happening to women of color, because their battle was never about the uplifting of all women. Their battle is about who will be in charge of White Supremacy , White women or White men. Women of color are just foot soldiers and acceptable casualties in their war. Keep in mind that many of those White women using #METOO also voted for Trump. 53% of the total votes by White Women went to Trump.
