News for 4-27-2007

Here's a very disturbing report on the plight of Native American women. The Native American women are far more likely to be assaulted than other women. It's due to lack of police and tribal funding as well as lack of societal concern for such women and girls. Here's the link below:

Are black men dressed as women just a drag? By LaMont Jones, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It's sad and it's wrong for Black women to be shortchanged in this manner by the Black community and society at large. If you don't like what I'm saying in connection to the plight of Black women in America, that's too bad because it's the truth and truth hurts.

Don Imus Hateful Remarks

Right-wing talk show host Don Imus is embarrassed by his own racist/sexist remarks on the Rutgers Basketball team. Here's the story. However, his apology came too insufficent and not sincere in my opinion. Last week, he compared Rutgers team to the Tennessee Team and called Rutgers team in racially charged terms. He felt free to say such things because he has no respect for people different from himself.

Rev. Al Sharpton and the organization of Black Journalists are still calling for his resignation. After all, Mr. Imus has a track record of bashing Blacks and women on his radio/TV show. It's time for him to retire.

USA Today article on Imus
Critics Demand Imus to Be Fired

Blogger Ann has a well-written editorial on the Imus and societal stereotyping of Black women in America. Mr. Imus is part of the problem. He's in the long line of nonblacks who say or write hateful sterotypes and who insult Black women and got away with it because of racialized sexism that deems Black women as the least worthy of all Americans. People like Steve Sailer, Eminem, Rod Dreher who wrote a mean-spirited article on Aaliyah, Rush Limbaugh, David Yeagley, rappers, Hollywood, Madison Avenue, politicians in general who use race as a way to consolidate white supremacy, VDARE, George Will, the whole media conglomorate, Howard Stern, among many others.

It's high time to hold the organizations and people accountable for the racist/sexist devaluation of Black women.
