I did not expect to wake up this morning search twitter and find such an upsetting and sad tweet to be sent. I am a big advocate of equal rights and women’s rights. I believe social justice reform is a must and needed. This though, this hurt me to my core, this hurt me generations back. The tweet I am talking about is this..
Awful! Disgusting and not needed! This woman Melissa McEwan asking Marvel to give black people less of a role in Hollywood for white women. It pains me as a humanitarian to see a tweet like this. It hurts me as someone who marches in many marches and donates to many charities to see something so reprehensible. I don’t know how many people know who Sam L Jackson is, but for those that done he is a strong-willed black man getting big in Hollywood, trying to make it out here on these acting streets. He is just trying to feed his family and was asked to narrate a trailer in a Marvel movie and this Melissa bully wants him to lose his job because he is a not a woman! It pains me that today in America black men work all their lives to make it this far and white women still try to take them down. Kanye West said it best in the famed song ‘Gold Digger’
“I know there’s dudes ballin’, and yeah, that’s nice
And they gonna keep callin’ and tryin’, but you stay right, girl
And when you get on, he’ll leave yo’ ass for a white girl”
I don’t know how it applies here but it kind of does and I like the song. Anyway this is just really disgusting of this woman Melissa. I am very upset and it was even hard to write this. I thought about it all morning and had to keep walking away from the keyboard because I was to angry that I could not write without cursing, and I don’t like to flapping curse!* I will continue to march and donate because if just one person thinks the way Melissa does, that we need to silence our black men and women, that’s one to many. I won’t stop until people like this no longer have a voice. Mr. L Jackson I have your back young man. Let’s fight this fight together.
Let me wobble back to my corner, Joe Pa knew.
