Folks have no problem pushing boundaries, and that was proven yet again over the weekend when a horrible meme hit the web sparked by Ronda Rousey’s recent loss to Holly Holm.

Just minutes after Rousey got knocked out by the veteran boxer, memes started circling the net. But one in particular, which was also shared by 50 Cent, pokes fun at the Bill Cosby rape scandal.

In the photo, Cosby can be seen on the phone asking the receiver: “Hello? Can you please tell me what room Ronda Rousey is in? And if she is still asleep?”

But while the meme served as entertainment for folks on social media, we wonder: Was it the joke too insensitive?

It was recently reported that several more of the dozens of women who came forward claiming that the comedian drugged and or sexually assaulted them over the past three to four decades, have joined the federal defamation lawsuit against the comedian. This all after Cosby and his law team denied many of the allegations, calling the women liars.

    BILL COSBY BILL NOW accused of drugging and raping 60 women, and counting, as of Novenber 13, 2015, in various countries. There are probably just as many who are now dead. 95% of rape crimes are never reported because victims fear rapist reprisal. The Crosby’s have no one to blame but themselves, they own this!

    STOP VICTIM BLAMING! This is about wealth, power, corruption and the resulting injustices that throw tens of thousands of Innocent Rape Victims under the bus to intentionally protect accused serial rapists, their enablers and accomplices from facing prosecution and justice.

    Give tens of thousands of Innocent Rape Victims, Accused Serial Rapists, their enablers and accomplices their day in court. Those convicted will no longer be “Innocent until proven guilty”. It’s not complicated. END OF STORY!!!

    If we do nothing we give All Serial Rapists, their enablers and accomplices permission to rape our daughters and a promise they will not be prosecuted. We also give corrupt governments permission to maintain their corrupt ways! We mustn’t settle for living in the past, we may not be able to protect yesterday’s victims but we can protect future victims and ourselves from crimes and corruption by fighting for changes when we can. We must be vigilant in holding ourselves accountable for our actions. To do less is unforgivable, “Justice for all or justice for none’! You and the media can choose to share this message or censor it!! Where do you stand!

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Published

on

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
