On a Black Female’s Breast and a White Rocker Preaching
Rock band Aerosmith’s lead “singer,” Stephen Tyler is a white man renowned for his sexual promiscuity and gender-bending ways. Recently, according to Fox News, Tyler made statements about the need for the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court ruling to be in favor of modesty and decency on the FCC regulated airwaves. Where is my stash of uncrushed plastic bottles and my chamomile Calms tea? Forget the tea. I’m hurt and furious right now. Almost too much to type. So, please forgive any typos.
I posted the following on Facebook about 45 minutes ago “This profane white man attest to the Roberts Supreme Court to the need for “decency” on the airwaves. And, then, near the end, the (white ) author says “The commission’s stepped-up broadcast indecency enforcement in recent years, including record fines for violations, was spurred in part by public outrage over Janet Jackson’s breast-baring performance during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show.” Nearly every time this event has been referenced since the first week after it happened, that racist rat Justin Timberlake is never identified as the one who pulled Ms. Jackson’s clothing off (oops by mistake). Oh, and puhleeze spare me the insults and criticisms of Janet Jackson—the sell-out or whatever. Let’s focus on The Problem —white folk.”
Ain’t nobody, hardly, got nothin to say. Exactly one thumbs up. Maybe most of the black folks who saw the status update thought, “Can’t bash the black chick (b@#tch)? Then, nothin to say!” Awww come on. Justin sings and dances black! He like black people! Awww, his music be jammin! Janet ain’t Sh@t. She been tryna come up in Tyler Perry’s lame films and her brother is dead.”
Under the system/logic of racism (white domination/supremacy), it is impossible for a black female to be sexually assaulted by a white man. Still, still have heard nothing from the usuals on FB.
Someone said that Tyler’s defense of raunchy lyrics in the ’80s renders him without credibility. My reply? He’s white–and, in a system of racism (white supremacy), that’s all he needs. And, I suspect the fun of making this point was the sole reason white folks at Fox News ran this story.
