Folks have been tweeting about the complicity of folks who work(ed) w/ #RKelly like @ladygaga or Jay Z. Can we add some accountability calls for @macklemore & @RyanLewis whose 2012 song Thrift Shop says “Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly's sheets (Pisssssss)”
By #accountability here I mean public acknowledgement that they made light of & profited off R. Kelly’s documented abuse of minors? Perhaps donating some profits for that song to sexual assault prevention organizations? #SurvivingRKelly #MeToo
And before yall be like “omg it was so long ago/a joke” In a 2013 interview about the lyric Mack said: “R. Kelly to me is the G.O.A.T. of R&B. I wrote that line in 2008 when that line was actually relevant. [If I meet him], I’m gonna be like, ‘Man, I’m so sorry’...He’s a genius.”

If one more white person I’ve tells me they tweeted about #RKelly before seeing my thread...

Yall missing the point. The point is a racial trend. The point is societal silence on black survivors.
If you weren’t part of that silence I wasn’t talking to you, but maybe you should talk to your friends who keep @-ing me. Come collect all your people in my mentions saying off the wall shit. Keep doing your work rather than asking me to give you praise for on top of my own work.
If white people continue to only do their social justice work so that black women will be nice to them or thank them or whatever; if white folks only want to do good if they are recognized & acknowledged for it with unconditional praise, we’re never going to get anywhere.

Thread for my white #feminist friends (of all genders)

Content: Sexual violence, racism

There is a racial divide on social media regarding #SurvivingRKelly
Most black folks I know have posted about the docuseries in the last few days (thankfully black people in my networks are expressing support of the victims of sexual abuse & coercion though their posts suggest to me that is not the case with their entire friends network)
In contrast, nearly all white folks I know are not even acknowledging the docuseries, the #RKelly conversation, nothing. This divide/contrast reminds me that white people are not required to know what’s happening to and among black folks.

1. Woke up 3hrs too early, queasy and stressed. 2mins from now, we will likely be witness to a national misogynistic sham so deep and so blatant as to prove once and for all that the powerbrokers of US government do not believe women are human. #Kavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors #RAGE
2. I'll prob livetweet #Kavanaugh hearing, but I feel physically ill over how they've stacked the deck against #ChristinaBlaseyFord, ignored #JulieSwetnick's gang rape allegations, demonized #DeborahRamirez. How many more rapes will happen bec Trump &GOP brand claim women liars.
3. 0 reason other than corruption, misogyny, and partisanship for having no witnesses, no FBI investigation. Yet hypocrite Grassley, opens saying he wants a "Safe, comfortable, and dignified" hearing and a "show of civility"--then immediately misrepresents the issues. #Kavanaugh

I have received a great deal of support but some criticism for going after #rkelly I’ll say this: “The most unprotected person in America is the Black Woman!” -Malcolm X

1. It’s not ok to knowingly give a 19 y/o woman herpes during consensual unprotected sex. It’s assault.
2. It’s not ok to give an underaged black woman alcohol or drugs before making sexual advances even if she complied. It is a crime.
3. It is not ok to record black women during sex without their express permission.

Puisque les langues se délient pour faire passer aux agresseurs un sale quart d’heure, j’aimerais lister ici les hommes célèbres qui ont été accusés ou condamnés en raison de violences sexuelles qu’ils ont vraisemblablement commises.
