Roseanne and Samantha Bee blow out all four tires in one week? Did Samantha just want to get her name in the news too?
Or . . . blame it on the full moon?
Is the N-word – to racism what the C-word is to misogyny? Discuss.
While absolutely not defending Roseanne’s racism, I question her swift, fierce punishment, while watching Dave Chappelle get away without a word, with his “kick a women in the p**sy” Netflix special. My frequent observation: Racism – no way! Misogyny: yay! (And I think that may be the case with Samantha Bee.) I sent a letter about Chappelle’s “violence towards women inspiring rant” to every publication possible and heard not a peep from anyone in response. So again, while not defending Roseanne – I wonder at the much harsher punishment of a woman for hateful speech.
I’m reminded of the statistical fact: women are punished more harshly then men by our legal system. Maybe that needs some addressing too. No maybe about it.
