Girl, press play on my Rage Against The Machine playlist!
Star Jones used the tried and true method of social networking finger banging to announce her plans to spearhead a campaign to boycott ‘Basketball Wives’ due to its negative portrayal of colored girls.
Now, this wouldn’t have anything to do with her being inside her feelings over ex-wife Al Reynolds (who quietly clocked tea on his divorce from Star on a recent episode) hanging tough with Jennifer Williams, would it?
“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH,” Star tweeted. “About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”
She continued: “And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity,” wrote Star before launching a quick rant about mysgony in hip-hop.
“I’m asking all my high profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.”
