Another Day, Another Black Woman Mauled And Sexually Assaulted By Police

“The most disrespected woman in America is the Black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black woman. We will kill you for our women I’m making it plain yes, we will kill you for our women. We believe that if the white man will do whatever is necessary to see that his woman get respect and protection, then you and I will never be recognized as men until we stand up like men and put the same penalty over the head of anyone who puts his filthy hands out.. to put it in a direction of our women.”

DEMAND JUSTICE. DEMAND JUSTICE.

This happened at the Waffle House – Saraland Al 2am April 22nd 2018

“Waffle House employee tried to charge Clemons 50 cents for plastic utensils as she rang up her order. Clemons refused to pay for the utensils, saying that she had never previously been charged for them, and the employee responded by canceling her order, according to Clemons-Howard. Clemons asked for the district manager’s contact information, and while she was waiting for the employee to bring the district manager’s business card, the police arrived.”source: al.com

Dear MadMen,

I am tired of watching Black women be continuously disgraced, and discarded.

This Black woman was viciously attacked by police… she was stripped of her clothing, choked, turned over and assaulted … her breasts dragged on a filthy public restaurant floor while the other women cry out.

A white man at the counter looks on… disinterested.. and continues eating.

DEMAND JUSTICE!

CONTACT THE SARALAND ALABAMA POLICE DEPARTMENT AND DEMAND JUSTICE. SPREAD THE WORD.

Address: 716 Saraland Blvd S, Saraland, AL 36571

  1. This is indeed sad, but here’s three suggestions:

    Suggestion #1:…Stay out of Waffle House, Starbucks, and any other commercial establishment
    (non-Black-owned, non-Black-controlled business or enterprise) since obviously we are shown that we are not wanted for our patronage, our money, and undeniably will not be give the least amount of respect even as a patronizing, everyday, run-of-the-mill consumer. Simply put, these businesses do not want us, much less even want to ‘look’ at us because of who we are, what we have been through, and what we are all about. As to what we can do to compensate for fulfilling the diversified market demands and rightful conveniences of worthy Black consumers, we K-N-O-W what to do now. The Asians seem to know what to do and never experience such embarrassment. Why is that? The Arabs know what to do. The Latinos know what to do, too. Even recent immigrants have enough sense to create their own community centers and their own commercial enterprises that exclusively cater, R-E-S-P-E-C-T!, and fulfill the business, political, and social needs of T-H-E-I-R people. By now, we should know better. No, correct that. We KN-O-W better!

    Suggestion #2:…Black women should stay within the proximity of caring Black men as much as their personal-professional-social time will allow, if not just for simple reasons, as well as the tragic realities of what any Black woman can possibly face when it comes to personal and physical safety while engaging non-caring persons, with the importance of this priority exemplified by this unfortunate incident. With all that we know now, and after all of the terrible, redundant, and sometimes fatal events that have unfolded before our very eyes just over the past 50 years, you have to ask yourself: who else do we have besides one another to protect ourselves, our children, and our interests? While I fully comprehend the complexities, realities, and paradoxes of our challenging relationships on familial and intimate levels (at least I think I do), it is well past time that we got our shit together and start looking at the ‘bigger’ picture, something of which we are faced with when carrying out our attempts to live out functioning lives as we rightfully should and as best we can under the current circumstances in which we find ourselves today. No one is going to show a-n-y Black woman a-n-y respect until she first respects herself, and are assured the support and defense by Black men who respect the women given to him by The Creator and Mother Nature. Again, the very first display of Black self-respect is that of Black women refraining from patronizing, financially supporting, and unrealistically anticipating even a basic level of quality customer service from non-Black businesses. Let’s face it: we are hated, despised, envied, and feared simply because of who we are, our shared history, our diversified looks, our distinctive way of thinking, and our particular interests, all of which are none that any of these non-Black businesses cannot and simply will not relate with because they don’t want to and continue to show us at every presented opportunity. None of these issues are of any fault of our own, nor should they be. There is absolutely nothing wrong with defending
    one’s self, one’s interests, and the interests of our people collectively with the means we
    have available.

    Suggestion #3:…Realizing that we are in a multi-pronged war involving the dynamics of race, economics, and spirituality, Black men and Black women should be doing everything in their power, financially and economically, to render ourselves independent of the services offered to us by disrespectful entities as much as possible. Realistically, I know that this is a challenge from many angles. But we have to start somewhere, today, if we want or desire our conditions to improve for the better. Where are the restaurants, coffee houses, and other commercial venues that we have built and can build for ourselves? If there are none, then I guess the best option is to pretend we have them while staying within safe environments (i. e. homes, churches, etc.) until they come to fruition. Regardless of our disagreements, history has shown us that the most assured and most effective tool of socio-economic protest is that of boycotting the goods and services of those who disrespect us. The Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955, in the very same state of Alabama, and as a direct result of the dishonor, disrespect, and unwarranted indignation shown to the very tired and resolute Rosa Parks (may She Rest In Power) proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the strategically-planned combination of applied economic warfare of withholding consumer patronage and ridership, providing optional transportation services (jitney cabs), and the utilization of Black self-respect as its overarching agenda won out over the continued socio-political environment of that era. Not only did that happen, but it provoked a progression of needed societal changes by becoming one of the most distinctive periods of the United States history by sparking the Civil Rights Movement. Eventually, this one event led to more groundbreaking enactments of state and national legislation that produced a significant difference in the character and conduct of commerce in this nation, becoming almost universally beneficially to nearly all inhabitants of the U.S. On this day, and with this incident to become as controversial as it will undoubtedly will, we need to deeply reflect on the past, retrieving those methods of change that were used to our advantage. But until we do, we will only see more instances of this nature and a continuum of disrespect of our women, our men, our children, and ourselves as a distinct people.
