What is one of the easiest topics to write about? Racism! More than any other ‘ism’, this ‘ism’ can hunt. And I say that rhetorically because there needs to be a distinction between imagined oppression versus the real thing! What is the real thing? Oppression of women around the world can be alarming. But I will get back to that part later. The link below is a lame attempt to claim ‘victimization’.
This is sophistry and immaturity taken to new levels on a topic that is pure fabrication at it’s best, a testimony to a society of narcissistic youth who see themselves as victims. Rosa Parks, that was truth, Jim Crowe Laws, that stuff really happened. And while there is real abuse happening on so many levels around the world, our young adults are transfixed on themselves living in a never-never world of stupidity.
Now I did mention reality awhile in this blog. That reality centers around a great woman, who has suffered more at the thoughts of world-wide misogyny than her own safety. You think I am being overly dramatic? Read this woman’s story below. She is more than a hero, she is a woman who has incurred the wrath of leading Muslim Clerics.
I challenge any woman reading this to not be inspired by her work and then to stop focusing on B.S. and start talking about the pain of women around the world. Women who have received at best a life of continued abuse and at worst, their own lives.
Taslima Nasreen is her name. And here is her blog. Feminists, this is your hero. Please read.
“LUCKNOW/KOLKATA: An FIR has been lodged against controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen for allegedly hurting religious sentiments following a complaint by a prominent Muslim cleric of Uttar Pradesh, a charge which the author said shocked her.
The case was lodged at Kotwali police station by Hasan Raza Khan Noori Miyan, son of the “sajjadanasheen” of Dargah-e-Ala Hazrat Maulana Subhan Raza Khan Subhani Miyan, who objected to certain tweets by Nasreen against clerics on November 6, police sources said here on Thursday.
In the complaint, it was alleged that with her remarks against clerics on Twitter the writer had hurt the feelings of the Muslim community.
Noori Miyan said a fatwa has been issued in the light of Hadees and Quran. It was demanded that the passport of the writer should be seized and she should be arrested.”
The point to all of this is perspective. A casual commentary about liking more people of color is true, but to depict this young lady as a ‘pale white girl’ makes me want to throw up. That is blatant bigotry and would make any parent angry. And another thing in the movie ‘Avatar’ the Spanish-speaking lady was edgy. I think she was Puerto Rican. Oh, so that means all PR ladies are edgy?
Anyway, take a look at this heroic. Read her factual stories of abuse to women. If you want to make a change in the world, do more than name streets MLK BLVD or other token offers, because children of the poor need a meal more than rhetoric and hate speech against white people as somehow acceptable fare.
