Ok so I went and visited over to Khadijah’s site in which she did a post on the recent craziness happening in Ferguson Missouri.
First, before I get into the meat of the post let me say in regards to the current wave of police brutality cases against Black men AND BLACK WOMEN (yes there are recent stories of Black women being brutalized by police officers), that this nonsense has to stop. But its not going to stop with rioting and marching. It stops when Blacks start putting pressure on their local senators and the government and Dept. of Jstice to make sure that sociopathic cops are removed from the police force.
I have always been a supporter of law enforcement especially in Black communities because there are so many Black women and children who are terrorized by the feral Black male loonies in these communities that we NEED police to keep them in check.
HOWEVER, I am not for the constant sociopathic abuse that some of these police officers participate in. The fact is there are a lot of mentally unstable RACIST White males who enter law enforcement just to wreak havoc on Blacks because they can get away with it in uniform.This country has a series problem with Police misconduct and it needs to be dealt with.
POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST BLACK WOMEN – CRICKETS CHIRPING AS USUAL
Just recently in Los Angeles a Black woman named Marlene Pinnock who is 51 years of age was brutally and savagely beaten by a CHP cop on the side of the freeway. It was caught on camera. She was not resisting arrest. She was a homeless woman walking onto the freeway. She certainly should have been detained and arrested. But what the officer did was utterly disgusting. He straddled her and punched her in the head over 11 times.
Another case in NYC where officers responded to a call of child abuse, they went into the (WRONG) home of a Black family and DRAGGED a naked Black woman out and straddled her and cuffed and arrested her while she lay on the ground in just her underwear. While dozens of police officers stand over her. No one tried to cover her up while she lay there naked.
Another case of a Black professor who worked at Arizona State, was stopped by police officers for JAY WALKING. When she questioned why the officer was stopping her (she had no choice to jay walk because of the construction) he body slammed her to the ground (she was wearing a dress) and cuffed her.
The point I am making is, its not just Black men who are being treated like animals – BLACK WOMEN as well are also being treated as animals by these sick sociopaths that call themselves police officers.
The reason why many of you never heard of any of the stories of Black women and police misconduct is because NO ONE GIVES A SHIT – Not even your average Black woman.
We only care when it is Black males.
Which leads me to the point of this post.
LOOK UP IN THE SKY! IT’S A BIRD….ITS A PLANE!… IT’S – SUPER SISTA SOLDIER!
BLACK WOMEN need to start recognizing we have our own serious issues we need to be fighting against. We have fought long and hard for others who have yet to rerun the favor (i.e Black men). How many Black men are marching for Marlene Pinnock, or that professor in Arizona, or the Black woman who was dragged out of her apartment and left to lay naked in cuffs while everyone stood around? NONE!
As Khadijah pointed out, the expectation for women to stand on the front lines in the line of fire for the sole purpose of “getting justice” for yet another young Black man, is only expected in the Black community where the women are expected to fight bullets, police and police dogs. It happened during the civil rights era as well.
Instead of Black women allowing Black men to do a man’s job and fight these battles for Black people, once again Black women go out there and strap on their soldier boots and get tear gassed, shot at, wrangled and wrestled, and chased by police dogs – FOR WHAT?
If I ma going to go through all of that, I or my group better benefit in some way for it!
Also on Khadijas post she quoted some other Black women who are also aware of the lack of reciprocation BW receive for fighting on the front lines for Black males. One pointed out a very important point. Where are all the non Black women that BM are married to and dating when these issues come up? Why is it we never see any of the Non Black women who supposedly love Black men and vice versa standing on the front lines?
LOL Because these women know that that kind of fight is not reserved for them and Black men know it to. They leave that to BLACK WOMEN. Once the fight is over and Black women are bruised and battered and sitting in jail cells for protesting, they go back to their Non Black women and continue to tell BW why we don’t measure up. LOL
So, in essence, Black men need to start asking their Non Black women they love so much to start taking up arms and fighting that good fight with them. Black women have yet to receive any kind of incentives for riding and dying for Black men or ANYONE.
I am a the point where I am sick of it. I am sick of BW riding for MEN period. Yes this includes WHITE MEN, BLACK MEN and anyone else.
Until I see a group of ANYONE out there standing up for Black women and fighting our fight alongside us, I say keep your battle fights for solely Black women causes ONLY.
Black women need to be focused on riding and dying for ourselves because better believe we have a lot on our plates we need to be focusing on and addressing.
If you want to fight against police brutality – start fighting for the BACK WOMEN whose stories go untold and unheard because no one cares.
There is no RACE of man or woman out her dong ANYTHING for Black women that BW need to constantly be promoting, uplifting and fighting for.
Word of caution: Since we know of their are some sociopathic racist cops out there, the best thing a Black woman can do for herself is to not even try to argue or fuss with them. If you get pulled over, questioned, just answer the damn questions and stop. Do not give these lunatics a reason to treat you like an animal because they are looking for you to do ANYTHING to give them cause to brutalize and man handle you.
And for the love of GOD – STOP CAPING for groups who are not and will never CAPE for you or justice for you.
