Hater of the Day, Again: Jimi Izreal
Jimi Izreal is a pompous asshat, who has bashes black women for fun and profit. This is second time being named Hater of the Day, congratulations! He has a neurotic need to publish his whining because we don’t fall on our knees to worship this snotweasel like he was an Adonis. He had a flame war with me after I read an excerpt from his book and criticized his neurotic ramblings. Now the dude is bashing black mothers, black girls and feminists in a piece for jezabel.com. The video of a 14 year old African American performing oral sex on a boy of similar age went viral after he and his friends uploaded it to the internet.The accompanying defamation of the girl exploded and the condemnation for the boy in question and the boys who taped this was conspicuously silent.
There are a plethora of black women in the blogoshere but jezebel.com chooses a black man to discuss the distribution of this child pornography. The is not a review of latest season’s fashions, this is a crime. Publishing a victim blaming, woman bashing piece like this just supports the longstanding devaluation of black women and lack of acknowledgment of white female privilege. You can read this idiot’s ramblings and a great critique called of his fluffer nuttery
No, You Aren’t Amber Cole’s Father.
Madame Noire, known for their feminist bashing pieces supported Izreal’s tomfoolery so I politely (well maybe not so politely) had to remind them that black feminist movement is hundreds of years old. I am tired of black people who look at the feminism as some kind of invention of white women. African AMerican women have been campaigning for the protection and equality since slavery. Bloggers who see black feminist as brainwashed followers of white women need to read Sojourner Truth’s Ain’t I a Woman speech. The obviously have not heard about Maria Miller W. Stewart, Sarah Mapps Douglass and Sarah Parker Remond who all spoke eloquently about special horror of being a slave and a woman. Frederick Douglass was also an member of the feminist movement and Ida B Wells spoke as fervently about the sexual atrocities that black women face as she did about lynching.The boys in this case have been arrested and hope the young lady in question get some counseling, so she can make more prudent decisions in the future.
