Al Sharpton has something to say about TMZ describing Beyonce’s BET Awards performance as a ‘Roboho performance’:
“Calling any woman a “ho” is demeaning and abusive and it should not be tolerated on any level. It is intolerable to think that TMZ.com would find humor in calling Beyonce — someone who symbolizes the strength, dignity and uplifting of Black women — a “Roboho,” and they should be denounced by the entire community for glorifying the continued oppression of women with this derogatory term. Racism in America is perpetuated by ignorance and hate and using one’s airwaves or media entity to promote it is a blatant setback to civil rights and the advancement of equality. National Action Network has been in the forefront of protesting the word “ho” and will hold a 20-city tour featuring 100 women in each market on August 7th to protest the use of the word “ho” as well as the “N” and “B” words. We encourage TMZ.com to retract their misogynistic labeling of Beyonce and apologize immediately.”
Beyonce represents Black women? You mean the 400-pound blonde lacefront wig, not being able to pull two words together without ‘hmmmm’, or freakin’ the ground in some booty shorts to get paid? Which one Al? The PC Mafia is on the attack. SMH. Al’s time would be better spent on giving “Pastor Alleyne” some tips on a Duked-out perm.
How much money did Sharpton get paid by Knowles Inc. and the Beyonce stan club to put this release out? TMZ has responded with evidence that they call white celebrities ‘ho’s’ and point out they never called her a ‘roboho’ and described her performance. Discuss…..
Stand UP! Sit DOWN!
