"The recent media spotlight on dog-fighting reminds us of society's callous disregard for the suffering of animals and disrespect for sentient beings...Every animal has the right to live without fear and pain. It is our job to do whatever we can to ensure this basic right for all animals, and we intend to do just that! Let's give law enforcement and animal welfare professionals, who are on the front lines of battling violence and cruelty in every form, our active support in their quest to elevate our society..Hurting animals for human pleasure or gain is despicable. Cruelty is just plain wrong. "
Russell Simmons and Rev. Al Sharpton on Michael Vick's dogfighting foolishness.
The full letter is located here. Everywhere you see the word "animal" replace it with "black woman in Florida"
Now wait just a dayum minute. Is that Russell Simmons, the Dean of the Russell Simmon's School of Obfuscation and Redirection? Russey " Palpatine" Simmons that won't life a pinky finger or move a vocal cord to speak out against those in the Hip Hop Industrial Complex who hate and despise Black women? Just. Just. Just. Just. (Gina walks away from the computer)
I'm still waiting on Rev Al and Jesse to issue statements about the Dunbar Village gang rape, one of the most heinous crimes committed against Black women in this country in recent memory. Russey have you sent in your check to the victim's assistance fund for this poor woman and her child? Oh you don't have the address? Here it is AGAIN.
Folks tomorrow when Rev. Al has his National Day of Outrage, we will be having a "National Day of SHAME!" To honor the moral inconsistency of our "leaders" and the Black Elite Establishment. We tripping over ourselves to speak about dogs, but breathtakingly silent about this horrific act of violence against a Black woman and her child.
You know what PETA, I agree with you "hurting animals for human pleasure or gain is despicable. Cruelty is just plain wrong." SO when can we expect PETA's donation to the victim's assistance fund? When can I expect a statement form you encouraging the residents of Dunbar Village to start assisting law enforcement with catching the remaining rapists?
