Again, whatever is in you will come out. Whether it was suppose to be said in private or shouted from the rooftops. It is irrelevant that he was speaking figuratively and not literally, what is relevant is the motivation behind the speaking. So, what is the motivation?
Blowing it out of proportion? One of the "so-called" senior black leaders discusses castrating the man he is suppose to be whole-heartedly supporting, who just so happens to be another black man with a real opportunity to secure the Presidency and make history and you say blowing it out of proportion...
It's not about opposing opinions, it is about opposing facts. My point is how can we ever work anything out if we can't agree with what we are looking at. We can never put out a fire if we all don't agree that the building in flames is in fact on fire.
Here is my problem with this continuing....Hillary has no chance of catching Obama. Her only hope is to make Obama appear unelectable. How can she do this without tripping him. It is one thing to say he may slip, but know this Obama has been preparing for this since high school there will be no slip. You can't trip a person and then claim they slipped. Show me how Hillary can win legitimately and I will listen, but stop the emotionalism. Both campaigns knew this day would come, how she responds now will speak volumes about who she really is.
I feel sorry for all women, but more so the young girls growing up with the false narrative that we feed them that they have to be like men to be respected, elected, or promoted. I find it hard to believe that after 400 years of white men playing John Wayne and having pissing contests with the rest of the world that we want those same traits in a woman.
Many times it is carried out in hushed tones as if the actual speaking of it out loud will in some eerie way cause it to happen, as if the forces that would choose to harm the Senator needed to hear the suggestion.
Your comparison of the plight of women over blacks in this country is a false narrative. While granted women have had a tough time, I find it insulting that you would characterize the plight of the mistress of the house with the slave.
