Sharpton Watch Day 01 - Where in the World Is Rev. AL???

As all of you know, last week I put up a post regarding comments DL Hughley made on The Tonight Show regarding the women of Rutgers. Read it here.

You might not know that last week I also sent a letter to MediaMatters.org and Rev. Al Sharpton, two of the main characters in the melodrama that was the Imus Bhuhaha. In that letter I asked Rev Al and Media Matters if they were going to address DL Hughley and ask Viacom to pull the plug on his new reality TV show on BET. I was met with RADIO SILENCE.

So until such a time as the Reverend Al issues a statement, post card, smoke signal, carrier pigeon message, addressing DL's comments, WhatAboutOurDaughters.org will be featuring THE SHARPTON WATCH. Today is Day ONE.

It wasn't cool when a white male said it. It shouldn't be cool when DL says it. Yes, you have a right to say whatever you want to say, but you don't get to be subsidized for saying it. Defund the War on Black Women!

Featured Activism of the Day!

Today we're featuring another group actively engaged in combating the WAR ON BLACK WOMEN. They are called the SpiritHouse. and they have launched the Our Name is Our Own Campaign.

On the tails of the hurtful words of Don Imus, the Our Name is Our Own Campaign™ will target the systemic level of this habitual branding, and how it sabotages the work of social justice and obscures the vision for our common dreams. This grassroots campaign will be unveiled by Ruby Sales -- acclaimed civil rights activist, social critic, public theologian and history maker


Drop by and read about what they are all about. If you know of another group working it out, let me know.
