    The "moral compass" in the U.S. is being destroyed right in front of our eyes. Why are we even having this conversation? Because our politicians are trying to politicize sexual behavior and because there is a rape culture that still thrives in America in spite of the shock people experience when such despicable behavior is revealed and made public on a large scale. Sexual predators are running amuck and have been for a very long time. Our ancestors knew it (Black men and women) but had very little at their disposal to do anything about it in the form of resistance. The women who are coming forward now to share their experiences are being called brave. These are primarily white women. But let's not forget the true and original brave sister, Anita Hill, a Black woman, who testified in 1991 and brought the concept of sexual harassment to national consciousness when she testified during Clarence Thomas' Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

    I'm not going to hold by breath Cory Booker, but you're right...a spade is a spade. If Al Franken and John Conyers can remove themselves from political office in the midst of sexual assault allegations, then how can the POTUS not do the same? But maybe that's the difference between Repubs and Dems? I sure hope the current FLOTUS understands better now, that this is not just "boy" talk. We're talking about men who have been charged to have acted improperly and possibly engaging in illegal sexual behavior.

    :10100:Every man, particularly those in positions of authority with power, should be shaking in their shoes right now and should be conducting a mental inventory of when or if they could have done anything that could be perceived as inappropriate by a woman (or man) during the course of conducting business. Everything will be revealed sooner or later in all its sexually explicit detail. So check your closet and under the bed, it's just a matter of time.

    True, Bro. James. I think some innocent men--particularly, Black men, will be unjustly accused and be forced to defend themselves. I've seen that happen.
