I hate to admit that I watched a tiny bit of local news this week. I saw plenty of coverage of the Planned Parenthood “shooter”, the San Bernadino “attacks” and the Chicago protests….. but NOTHING in regards to the case of the inhuman Daniel Holtzclaw. Not a peep.
In short, Holtzclaw is/was a POLICE OFFICER who RAPED AND ABUSED SEVERAL BLACK WOMEN all while ON DUTY. I believe he did it because 1). he’s a sick fuck, and 2). he knew he’d probably get away with it.
This case got me deep into my dormant volcano mood; I have yet to read or hear the entire story because it’s pretty disgusting and painful. I just hate that our bodies, Black bodies, are constantly disregarded. Let’s be real, if this were several white women, Holtzclaw would probably be on death row right about now. Nancy Grace would be working double shifts to chew up this monster. I don’t trust or expect much from mainstream media, but with the obvious lack of coverage, it’s just very disheartening [and often overwhelming] to be reminded that the safety and well-being of my people doesn’t matter.
Where are all those feminists when you need em?
Where’s Al at? Jesse Jackson? Tito? Anybody?
My solace? He was convicted last night. Hopefully he’ll get ass raped everyday for the rest of his days.
Are/Were you following this case?
