petitioning R.Kelly…

June 27, 2008 § Leave a comment


it appears as if there are a slew of Black men out there who are petitioning the acquittal of R.Kelly and it just makes my heart sing…I know I rant about these issues, but I am glad I am not alone in doing so….here is the link below:

1000 Black Men Petition R. Kelly

And although nothing legally can be done with this petition, it can send a message which is sometimes as powerful, if not more powerful, than any other institutional actions.

The actual petition: Statement of Black Men Against the Exploitation of Black Women

“This is about more than R. Kelly’s claims to innocence, according to the petition. It is about our survival as a community. As of Tuesday, about 1000 Black men had signed the petition that challenges them to never abuse Black women, to support Black women, and to reject Kelly unless he apologizes for his behavior toward women.” — like I said, I don’t know what this will do but it is better than not hearing any one say anything about this…
