On Race, Kinship, and Black Women

Christina Sharpe in dissident voice

“You must not forget that we are students first and then we’re athletes. And before the student lies the daughter.”

-- Essence Carson


It took almost a week to generate "public outrage" about the remarks that Don Imus and producer Bernard McGuirk made about the Rutgers Women's basketball team.

In that same week the media consistently reported that three white lacrosse players from Duke University were found innocent of the charges against them. It's true that the charges of rape/sexual assault against the three white Duke players have been dropped, but they are not innocent of either misogynist or racist acts. After all, these young men whom, I suspect, like most young white men of their class have very little social interaction with black people or, at least, little social interaction with black people of vastly different class and circumstances, hired these young black women from the other side of the tracks to dance at their party. The two women hired to dance agree on this: the players subjected them to racial and sexist abuse. And, let’s not forget that after Ms. Roberts’ accusations became public, a number of women on the Duke Campus came forward to say that they believed her because they, and other women they knew, had been assaulted as well.

But, one (white) mother makes clear in her letter to the Boston Globe [1] the differences between what sons and daughters across a race/sex/class divide are told and who one imagines to be one’s son or daughter. She writes, “Any mother could have told those boys a party with alcohol, young men, and a stripper of unknown origins had the potential for trouble.” Many a black mother could have told that daughter (those girls) about the potential trouble to them in interactions involving alcohol and young white men with pedigrees and power attached to race, sex, and class privilege.

You are wrong. The Duke boys SPECIFICALLY requested white or hispanic dancers. They didnt want black strippers. Now Im sure you will point to that as a racist act. They are racists if they dont hire a black ho and they are also racists if they hire one. How typical.
In addition, the one racial epithet was in response to a racial epithet one of the strippers yelled at them. Are blacks racist who scream racist epithets/ Or just the whites who respond in kind?
Perhaps you should be like the rest of the fem/lib bloggers who act like the Duke case never happened. Nobody on that side covered themselves in glory there.

Enlighten us on what racist or mysoginist act any of the three accused young men committed. NONE of them have been accused of saying anything racist or mysoginist.
It looks like you havent really followed the Duke case. You saw the races of those involved and you needed nothing else to arrive at a decision about what happened.
Im sure initial rush to judgement didnt bother you at all in this case. In addition Im sure that you are outraged by Michael Vicks standing in the arena of public opinion. How utterly predictable.
Do yourself a favor and check out the FBI statistics on interracial gang rapes. Then go ahead and bemoan the plight of black women in the presence of white men.
Your ignorance is staggerring!
