Im kinda neutral about Gayle..personally.  But I suppose there could be some racists/trump supporters working for cbs.    And this was a deliberate move to smear her and stain her reputation-making her appear to be a heartless journalist digging for dirt during the time of Kobe's unexpected demise.  I see it as a ploy to discredit Gayle for being outspoken about what's going on under this presidency.  I look at the photo of Gayle in the above post and think how can you possibly know what MEN [women for that matter] do?  You can't.  All the men standing next to Gayle [are proof of that  and] are probably a drop in the bucket to the many sex freaks in Entertainment and Politics who have violated or sexual abused women subliminally throughout the years.  They just haven't been called out yet.    And because of this legacy/pattern and the current "me, too" atmosphere, Im sure more men accused of [what is now deemed] sexual misconduct will follow.  Cuz every other week some where, some how?  More and more men are being exposed.  So.  This is new era for women. 

However, I do think because we are on social media everything we do is judged by an unknown outrager- which most times can convinced others to be outraged on social media.  Maybe Gayle has an enemy in the company she works for.  I dunno.  I just noticed how today its so easy to be pulled in with misinformation or fake opinions that can immediately cause internet chaos.  It seems now people can become upset over the littlest things with little or no facts.  This is where it becomes very dangerous who you believe in social media or who can be convinced with half truths. Especially if behavior considered bad is caught on tape or if false information/half truths of someone's moral/value compass is in question and this is coming from those that person knows or is acquainted with  like friends, relatives or work colleagues as in Gayle's situation.  The danger of It can blow up right in your face....and like Gayle...you know nothing about where it came from.  The lesson?  Can not trust anyone but "me, myself and I."  Thing is Beyoncé is right!  You have to be your own best friend.  Cuz as we all can see?  Oprah couldn't  even help Gayle.   These are the bizarre times we now live in.  A new day!  But!  

Gayle take off that damn wig and let folks know what you truly look like. See if you can get Joy Reid to do the same. Oprah's got a hairdresser, surely she can hook you up. You look the same as when you were doing Channel 3 News in Hartford, CT; Joy's fake hair's reaching to the heavens. with her edges shot.

If you guys think that's beautiful, think again.

Want to know who's beautiful?? Laura Jarrett. She looks like a portrait. Poetry in Motion!!!!!

*I think Gayle, and by extension Oprah, need to understand that this is a new day.  You can no longer attack other Black people (or their legacy) without a big response.  Let's me be clear, Gayle was a puppet for the suburban soccer moms that think that every Black person is guilty regardless of the court decision.  They hate Kobe and any other Black person that isn't buck dancing for a dollar.  They can't stand him and they NEEDED Gayle to hit up his friends with rape case questions.  Gayle would never ask her friend Oprah about Harvey Weinstein or any of the other White guys, like Matt Lauer who are rapists.  Oprah and Gayle aren't allowed to do that.  I heard that Gayle is now feeling very hurt and heartbroken with it, but I think Bryant family is much sadder and need our prayers.  

 

As a side note....Shoutout to our SIS-STAR Lisa Leslie for having her homey's back to the very end.  SALUTE!! 

 

My thing about Gayle bringing up Kobe being charged with a 'rape'  [that he was acquitted for] is the fact that he just died, and he left behind young daughters and a pregnant wife that do not deserve to be so disrespected, by that being  the focus right now, as if they do not matter.

I agree.  I just have to see the clip to  hear exactly what she said..  Cuz other news outlets did the same thang.  Including Huff Post. I  read one article I think with Huff or MSN and in the middle of praising Kobe as a hero/girl dad somewhere in the second or third paragraph there was a mention of the rape.   In fact, almost every article/media  I 've read or watched  thus far about Kobe, excluding those articles/tv stations that gave tribute to him, almost all of em talked about the rape-I just skipped those notations/changed the channel.  Cuz it made me angry hearing/seeing the contradiction during such a sensitive and inappropriate time.  But it was done nevertheless.  Plus news media is known to always put the fly on the ice cream when it comes to Black people-to stain our image/reputation.  They did it with Michael, Teddy, Marvin,  James...and even Martin Luther King.     But you won't hear them do that kind of thing to their own  supposedly heroes.  Only....ours.  If they do....it's long after their heroes have been gone for years.  And even then the story is always romanticized/canonized.  But you're right my sista.  Totally.  Gayle shouldn't  have brought it up at all.  I guess there is a question as to why she would in the first place.  So I really do get why folks are upset.  I would be too.  I just need to hear what Gayle said and how she said it.  But!  

White folks can't talk about their relatives screwing Africans during the Slave Trade. How in the hell does anyone expect them to express "rape" now?? Every damn one of us blacker than a crow or lighter than snow has their blood flowing through our veins.

A woman cannot be raped in a man's hotel room unless her ass followed him there. No one I've ever heard was picked up off the street and carried up to a hotel room in a man's arms. They got raped because they FOLLOWED HIM to HIS ROOM. When you do that, you GET WHAT YOU GET!!!!

When he unzips his pants, run! If he sticks his mushroom in your mouth, BITE!! Get the HELL OUT OF HIS CLUTCHES.

Women knew Bill Cosby was married. What the hell were they doing in HIS ROOM?? You wanted drugs?  You got a lot more than what you bargained for. I feel no sympathy for these women. I'm just thankful I survived the days of my youth and the bullshit I faced. Whatever it was, WAS MY FAULT. I damn sure didn't go back for seconds, nor do I blame anyone else but myself. My lessons were learned very well.

I'm living to reflect on the past; am neither in jail nor 6 feet under. Thank God for that!!!!

I agree with EVERYTHING you said.    Fact is white women in Hollywood BEEN giving it away-they started doing that during the casting couch era [1900s-1980s]. They KNEW in the roaring 20s what they had to do to get into films. No mystery there.   In fact, during the late sixties early seventies all Hollywood's starlets had to pose seminude for Playboy Magazine including Jane Fonda, Barbara Eden and  Angie Dickerson to name a few  to expand their sexy persona/popularity with men.   The original movie Valley of the Dolls tells this story.  But just like you said....Black folks [including male, female, the young and the old] were being raped/dehumanized during slavery all the way up to and after the Civil Rights movement.  But massa aint NEVER gonna talk about that.  Cuz that makes him a real monster  in the eyes of the world.   His ego wants the world to think that he's powerful through supposedly "civilized" military conquests...not by disease, barbaric mayhem and rape of innocent people minding their OWN BUSINESS...in their own space.  No.  That's not a good look for him-cuz he "a hero."     

But!  Another deep truth is....massa evolved from a red haired Neanderthal into a human virus attacking human hosts.  So. He and his species [including the Denisovan] could  never actually develop into fully modern humans.   Proof?  If you look at the history of his violent behavior over the years ....you can see that really?  He's anti-human.  Have killed millions of his own folk.  And!  Wants  the world to ignore that and  perceive him as the super human genus-the superior one.  While his savage behavior continues mirroring the angst of the betta fish...the inferior fish that aggressively kills its own species-except when mating.  Can only be in the fish bowl alone.  That's massa.  He sees himself above what he has done and is doing to humankind-which also includes how he has mistreated his white female counterpart since the very beginning-starting back [in Europe] with hitting her over the head with his prickly club and dragging her inside the cave to have his vicious way.  

Massa have always seen himself in a different lens...feels he can touch anybody...do anything....like Weinstein, Kirk Douglas, Epstein.....Hugh Hefner... it's a spectrum of [white] patriarchal male arrogance that historically always ruled/controlled [their] women's vaginas.   Plus! These women today knew that history,  as you say, when they went to the hotels invited by the accused men.  They heard the rumors but WENT there anyway.  But!  It is that sexual aggressive behavior that makes massa very DANGEROUS....cuz the traits of the Neanderthal betta fish are still there imbedded within his DNA.  And his only difference between us [modern humans]?  He just look like us from a physicality stand point but with white pale skin.  But!  Trust and believe!  He ain't us.      Just like nature has enemies....dog against the cat....cat against the mouse?  It's the Neanderthal genome against the modern human.  Been going on since massa i.e. the anti-human came out of the cave and viciously mated his DNA with the modern human i.e. homo sapiens.  A tragic mutation of  human destruction....to say the least.  But!

Those military conquests are nothing but the non-Hue Man Being mass slaughter of brown and black foreigners. The Criminal Injustice System takes care of us here. We're all just born to die by their hands if we're not careful.

It's beyond time for our babies to wake up completely and STOP doing things that will get them thrown in cages for life or worse getting electrocuted or shot by "cops".

Trying to live in this country is NO JOKE when you have a HUE.
