Now What Was Said? The Trans Community Protest Charlamagne at Politicon

mm

Published

on

It was only a matter of time! After The Breakfast Club’s transphobic interview with Lil Duval Friday, they’ve been experiencing some necessary backlash.

The ignorant comments came from Lil Duval, but everyone in that room was responsible for letting him carry on like that. Trans men & women death are not jokes.

“This might sound messed up and I don’t care — but she’s dying. I don’t care,”-Lil Duval

What makes it more disgusting is that this happened during the same week Janet Mock, a well-known voice in the (trans/LGBTQ name which community) community, came and educate each one of them. They learned nothing apparently.

Charlamagne spoke at Politicon that following Sunday, and the trans community made sure their voices were heard.

Blossom Brown, a Greater Than Aids ambassador, in the video above made her voice be heard loud! She and others called Charlamagne out for laughing at Lil Duval’s disturbing jokes. Although Charlamagne did tell the comedian that it was a hate crime, it was his tone and the fact that he had been laughing at the jokes.

These women protested him in front of a majority white audience. White people do not like being around situations like these. The #BoycottBreakfastClub hashtag was trending for most of the day Sunday. If you think the hashtag won’t do anything you are sadly mistaken. The conversation is continuing, and once again trans women are the ones pushing it front and center.

Su-I-(De)-Cide

Published

on

Su-I-(De)-Cide. Really?! Are you deciding to commit suicide when you let yourself become just “one of them?”

Budding author Olivia Thompson thinks so as she takes us on a journey to discover what “living” means when who we are is pre-determined by everyone and everything that came before us. In her four short stories, we meet Zaba, a college-bound student fighting against social stigmas after learning her best friend is HIV positive; Raven, who does anything to force a drug dealer to feel the consequences of his choices; Kiyomi, who struggles to survive each new day, and; a nameless character who can be anyone of us in the midst of conflict. Through these stories, we learn that life is a beautiful experience, but it also has a habit of breaking people.

Although Miss Thompson began writing at three, this is her first publication. Born with a stutter that made her afraid to speak and the victim of bullying, she dove into creating imaginary worlds where characters used a voice she was too afraid to use herself. Behind the desktop, she was in control. Yet, as she got older she learned that no one is ever in control, and her imaginary worlds took a different turn.

Her debut title, Su-I-(De)-Cide, is available now on Amazon!

#MuteRKelly vs #TurnRKellyUp

mm

Published

on

In retaliation of the Mute R Kelly campaign, which was launched because of the inhumane treatment of women, many of which who were under the legal age of consent, in an alleged sex cult and harem, Kelly has been accused of running for many years.

Kelly has launched the Turn R Kelly Up movement. Over the weekend during his show in North Carolina, Kelly gave out t-shirts and briefly addressed the crowd, with what appeared to be a “woe is me” cry for support.

 

Watch the plea here:

Kelly has been accused of sleeping with teenagers for years. He was first accused of marrying singer Aaliyah when she was only 15 years old, that marriage was annulled. He was then accused of sleeping with singer Sparkle’s niece, while she was only 14 years old and making the infamous sex tape, in which his reputation for giving out golden showers precedes him to this day.

Quite frankly, Kelly’s reputation overall is absolutely horrific. There are countless stories regarding how Kelly has a God complex because he has been able to get away with a lot of sick and twisted acts, with little to no repercussions.

Kelly Was Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

The singer was arrested in June of 2002 on child pornography charges, he posted $750,000 bail but then was arrested again in January 2003 on 16 additional child pornography charges, when photos of a naked, underage girl were found on his computer.

In addition to the accurately depicted Pied Piper persona, Kelly has also severed ties with his brother, Carey Kelly, who he expected to take the fall for his devious behavior, in addition to singers Neyo, Jay Z, and countless others, because of his superiority complex.

Recently, celebrities such as John Legend, Shonda Rimes, Viola Davis have banded in the #TimesUp movement to mute R Kelly, which has resulted in music platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music pulling back on the promotion of Kelly’s music. His music will still be available, it just won’t be highlighted.

Kelly’s Team Jumps Ship

In addition, Kelly’s female attorney, publicist, and assistant have also jumped ship. This can’t be a good sign. I’m sure they know much more about the inner workings of what goes on with Kelly’s alleged occult, behind closed doors. They don’t want to go down with him, permanently ruining their name and reputation, by supporting a predator.

It truly appears that all of Kelly’s dirt and wrongdoings are about to catch up to him. Although there will always be those that turn a blind eye to the singer’s misdeeds because he is such a gifted artist (which is reflected in his sold-out performance over the weekend in Fayetteville, NC).

#ItsAboutDamnTime Movement

Soon and very soon we will be transitioning from #TimesUp to #ItsAboutDamnTime, and others that follow behind R Kelly will think twice before violating young, impressionable women ever again. Until then, we are waiting and watching, with popcorn in hand.
