I can understand her frustrations. But if this was my brother, uncle, father,  I would feel sickened that that she chose to use a case where a man is basically being murdered in front of our eyes, his last breathes, words, etc. playing all around the world to make her point.

As a people, black women were always the backbone.  We always did more, had to be more, had to be stronger, etc.  We had to fight for the rights as women and being black. We will always carry the heavier burden.  So while it gets frustrating to not see the same outrage for that black woman being punched in the face repeatedly by that cop, I will not let that interfere with my march for this man who was murdered by the police.

This police brutality needs to stop. These animals need to be held accountable. We should ALL march for that.  Marching for Eric is marching for the nameless other  victims.

is she saying our community is divided by sex and the hatred of women? I think this is the wrong platform. If this is her stance I think she is adding to the problem.

So I will mourn Eric Garner and I will cry bitter, broken tears for him, but that is all that I can do. I will also use his dead body as a stepping stool to my soapbox where I will attempt to steer the conversation toward what I'm personally invested in. Oh and it's definitely no different than the #notallmen campaign that was obviously a distraction technique used to dismiss women's issues. No, it's not any different than that selfish, unhelpful attempt to diminish valid issues that need to be addressed. To my sons, brothers, father, uncles, and male friends. Your murders are kind of sad but until women's issues no longer exist, or I have enough anecdotal evidence that counters my hypothesis that black men are unable to acknowledge black women's issues, then you get get no help from me. No, in fact, I'll actively hurt you by trying to steer sympathy and support away from you.

Fixed it for her.

What an insensitive bytch. This man died. This isn't the time for that.....

This issue isn't about black men and black women, it's about the NYPD's knee jerk reaction to killing black people, regardless of gender, socioeconomic status etc. 

She sounds stupid to me. It's that type of mentality (divide and conquer) that is counterproductive. If she wants to start a discussion about sexism in the black community such as what happened to Jada, then fine....that's good, but this man dying has nothing to do with sexism. Sheit, would you march for his family? His wife? His daughters? His mama? You took the time to write a piece about what you wont do.....so what will you do? The black women who watched their love one die senselessly, need support,....will you march for them?

She's only focused on one type of black man. Just like the black men she speaks of r only focused on one type of black woman. Beating ignorance with ignorance has never worked.
