Since when did manufactured oppression become fashionable? “Grace” the woman who tried to make a sexual assault claim against Aziz Asari because she didn’t like how he was making out with her, oh! and stopped when she said she didn’t want to have sex with him is doing some damage to the #MeToo movement, and HLN journalist, Ashleigh Banfield has something to say about it.

 

Banfield is right. Hopping on a victim bandwagon for clicks and views without considering how this would ruin Ansari’s career because you had a “bad date” is a major overstep. In the second video, she talks directly to the writer of the original story who sent a nasty email attacking Banfield’s looks while claiming to be an advocate of feminism is the ultimate display of hypocrisy.

All this complaining and manufactured outrage is becoming exhausting to your men, by the by. More and more of them are coming to my YouTube channel and telling their stories about some of you. They have compassion for women who are going through real, life-threatening, career-ending, soul-crushing abuse by men, but not your whining about bad dates and fighting for the right to go shirtless and free bleed.

Maybe if you’d look more than twice at the crippling statistics black and brown women face instead of being narcissistically preoccupied with mindless pettiness, I will take your Third Wave Feminists seriously. Doubt that will happen though. Listen, little snowflakes: if going out with a guy who made out with you badly is the “worst night of your life,” you need to kiss the effing ground, you entitled, spoiled little…nevermind.

Serena has never looked, well…so Serene.

Looks like little Olympia (aka Junior) is having an amazing effect on the tennis star, and giving us all an example of what it looks like to live well.

She and baby grace the cover of Vogue’s February issue, and I can just tell by looking this little one keeps mommy busy. She breastfeeding and planning a comeback, and ultimately planning on setting roots in San Francisco, home of Reddit, the company her hubby Alex Ohanian co-founded.

What an example of what can happen when you open yourself up to everything the universe has to offer–included dating ALL races of men, like Serena did. How amazing life can be when you allow quality men to love and care for you and give up on the ‘struggle love’ mantra the toxic BC insists you embrace as a rite of your womanhood.

The article mentions that Serena had dangerous and potentially life-threatening blood clots after giving birth and had to stay on bedrest. Alex jumped in to change diapers and care for the child, and it looks like Serena didn’t want for anything.

What an amazing message and #swirlgoal to have come into February, the month of love.

The #MeToo movement is in full effect, costing people their jobs, fame, and in one instance, their reason to live.

But until you get SHOT TO DEATH because you rebuff  man’s romantic overtures, you have no idea was it means to be at the mercy of evil, cowardly men like this monster who killed a teenager whiles she was babysitting her three-year-old cousin.

As 16-year-old Shemel Mercurius lay dying from three gunshot wounds in May 2016, a patrol cop administered first aid — and asked her questions about who had attacked her.

In New York City’s Brooklyn Superior Court on Monday, the officer testified that Shemel used her dying breaths to name 25-year-old Taariq Stephens as her alleged killer. Stephens is on trial on second-degree murder and weapons charges.

Daly testified that Shemel drifted in and out of consciousness while they waited for an ambulance. He told jurors that, during one period of lucidity, the teen told detectives that Stephens allegedly wanted to be her boyfriend but she wasn’t interested. [SOURCE]

This is the dirty secret the toxic side of the black community refuses to discuss in any real way. Guess she should have “chosen” better.

Did you see the article published in The Grio today, about their “concern” over the idea that a mixed race woman of African American decent is marrying into the royal family and people FORGETTING about England’s legacy of slavery. Oh…really??

Here’s what they said…

The British royals may be set to welcome a Black member into their family, but that doesn’t mean they’re off the hook for hundreds of years of colonizing and enslaving Africans and dark-skinned people around the globe, all while amassing a ton of wealth in the process.

Sorry to be the one to throw cold water on the recent announcement of Prince Harryand Meghan Markle‘s engagement, but somebody has to do it.

Hmmm…let’s see what else…

The British royal family presided over the exploitation of untold millions of people in Africa, India and around the world. Britain’s national wealth, and the riches of the royal family were built off the backs of slaves, making the Industrial Revolution possible.

Oh wow! That’s TERRIBLE!! They really, really HATE slavery. And-and-and-and this organization is being very specific about reminding black people that those white English folks are white supremacists too, and probably Meaghan is a bed wench. That is what they like to call us black or mixed race women with African ancestry when we don’t fall in line, now isn’t it?

Do you notice that when a black man marries a white woman, nobody is rushing in to do DNA tests and ancestry forensics to see if that woman is the decedents of slaves? That’s so weird…

I’d rather them STOP trying to remind us of ancient history and focus MORE on the slave trade that is happening RIGHT NOW in Libya. They’ve written a few articles, but can we please get some more, maybe organize and mobilize your vast audience to march on Washington to free our black brothers and sister? Maybe ask Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to pitch in our something?

Ladies, don’t be so gullible. See the game that’s being played on you.

I heard about the slave trade happening in Libya a couple weeks ago, when my Sudanese hair braider alerted me to the news channel she watches from her country. She was outraged, and I was puzzled, and a bit suspicious. I mean, if there were actual people being SOLD WHOLESALE…BLACK PEOPLE…wouldn’t our mainstream media–or at least black media like The Grio, The Root, SOMEBODY–be talking about it? Weeks later, the only major American news outlet discussing this is CNN. You know…the organization our “president” calls “Fake News.” But this doesn’t look fake to me at all. There are actual people in cages. IN CAGES.

IN CAGES!!!!!!!!!!!! They’re being sold for as low as $800.

Now, I’m not going to expect media companies headed by white folks to care more about this than the black media, but…THE BLACK MEDIA IN AMERICA HAS BEEN SILENT. This SAME black media who screams white supremacy boogeyman, slave reparations, and evil whitey because of slavery hasn’t even picked up the CLIPS about it, and WHY? I’ll tel you why. BECAUSE THE PEOPLE SELLING BLACKS ARE BLACK TOO. And Arab. Their silence suggests they only CARE about slavery when WHITE PEOPLE DO IT. Which means they don’t really care about slavery at all.

Educate yourself on what’s happening in Libya.

Listen Hotep Nation, if you’re going to rail about “evil albinoids” and the inherent moral deficit of whites but ignore what’s happening in Libya right now, you’re hucksters. You’re fakes. You’re phonies. You’re not talking about it because it doesn’t fit into your narrative about how evil white slavers were, while you BLATANTLY IGNORE the EVIL that is happening RIGHT NOW. And why? Because the evil doers are NOT white. Not White = Don’t Care. Not White = No Media Coverage. Not White = No Clever Twitter Hashtags. You people make me SICK.

Hartford University Student Bullied By White Roommate; School Keeps Mum http://www.beyondblackwhite.com/hartford-university-student-bullied-white-roommate-school-keeps-mum/ http://www.beyondblackwhite.com/hartford-university-student-bullied-white-roommate-school-keeps-mum/#comments Wed, 01 Nov 2017 03:33:44 +0000 http://www.beyondblackwhite.com/?p=43474 The story is developing, but a young, black University of Hartford student reported on her Facebook page that the school administration ordered her to keep silent about an incident involving her roommate, who is white.

The story is developing, but a young, black University of Hartford student reported on her Facebook page that the school administration ordered her to keep silent about an incident involving her roommate, who is white. The roommate, unknown to us at the moment, systematically worked to push Jazzy Rowe out of the dorm by rubbing bloody tampons on her backpack, putting moldy, spoiled food into her beauty products, and polluting her toothbrush with harmful bacteria, which may have cause a chronic infection. The roommate gleefully reported all her pranks on Instagram, in which Jazzy later discovered when she arranged to move out of the dorm. In the Instagram post, the bully announced that she’s finally gotten rid of “Jamaican Barbie.”

Jazzy went to the campus administration and they arranged a “not contact” order between the two young women, but later told Jazzy that the matter had been “dismissed” without any update about disciplinary action against the girl who harassed her. Out of frustration with the administration, Jazzy issued a plea that has been shared on Facebook thousands of times. “If the situation was reversed, and it was a black person who did this, I can’t help but wonder how this would be handled,” she says.

Perhaps it’s time for some of us to contact the University of Hartford, and ask them why they’re making this young girl feel like she has absolutely no recourse from someone who basically was poisoning her.

Stories like this make me fume and make me sad. Some white women have a cunning so foreign to black women that cultural differences don’t allow us to recognize it. While black women express their anger outward and obviously, white women are often quiet, deliberate, and silent in their hatefulness. When confronted, they often play innocent and count on the assumption that their “white purity” will give them the benefit of the doubt. I honestly didn’t know how expert many were at this level of bullying, but…let’s just say that the movies like Mean Girls, Cruel Intensions, and Carrie don’t come from nowhere. Young black girls and women unaccustomed to this level of bullying hardly see this coming, and it’s deeply wounding. I’ve been a victim of it more than a few times.

If anyone has an update on this story, please update us in the comments.

UPDATE: According to the latest reports, the perpetrator, Brianna Brochu, has been arrested. A university representative made this statement:

Upon learning of the incident, Public Safety immediately ensured that the victim was relocated to a safe location, notified local authorities, and provided support for their investigation. The accused student was subsequently arrested by the West Hartford Police Department and her case will proceed through the legal process. The University will continue to precisely execute our defined process outlined in the Code of Student Conduct.

The University strictly and swiftly followed all procedural and legal processes related to this alleged event; claims to the contrary are based on misinformation. The incident has brought about accusations of racism, and I want you to know that I hear and share your anger and frustration. Acts of racism, bias, bullying, or other abusive behaviors will not be tolerated on this campus. I pledge to do everything in my power to work with our community to address related concerns together.
