Some thoughts: Special episode of Law & Order SVU and hypocritical Black violence

In a 2011 episode of Law & Order SVU, Terrence Howard guest stars as the Los Angeles Deputy ADA who treks to New York as a defense attorney for a relative accused of rape.  There are multiple generations involved in both sides and the white female victim being brainwashed with racial hatred by her grandfather her entire life. Both the victim and the accused are hauled off to jail for different crimes.

 

The black grandmother was a civil rights volunteer and activist during the 1960s in which the Ku Klux Klan gang-raped her and used the defense she was a prostitute.  This apparently was a tactic that was widespread as voter intimidation against blacks.

There is a poignant scene in which the grandmother poses the question to ADA Novak, “Have you ever been spat upon, looked at as less than human?” law and order svu

My honest thoughts, nearly every day, by black “Christians” (both male and female).  All I had to do was replace “spat” with “street and sexually harassed” and it would be accurate.  Here is a black woman asking a white woman has she ever been degraded because of her race, and now in the 2000’s it is a black woman who is a Sunni Muslim who can ask the same thing to black “Christians.”  The hypocrisy of Black American “Christians” in modern America is distasteful and is veiled by their own rhetoric to always play victim when they are actually the perpetrator.  This does not go unnoticed.  For some reason, black “Christians” who make up their own dogma believe they do not have to account for their actions.  Why? Because Democrats, which most them are always find a way to justify their behavior and blame the victim.  They are the first to squawk about black unity when they are the ones who destroy other blacks’ lives, communities and victimize other blacks as a whole.  These black “Christians” are quite aware of what they are doing and have no qualms to promote their hatred in Jesus name.  This is the vast majority of black “Christians” via street, sexual and workplace harassment of other Blacks.  There is nothing sanctified about them and quite the opposite.  They are demonic liars and would do ANYTHING to harm blacks for entertainment.  Black “Christians” today are sadistic ‘sell-outs’ despite their act of being the garrisons of black consciousness.

…at the Whole Foods in Columbia, Maryland (Howard County)

whole foodsOne morning at approximately 9:00 a.m.,  I was entering the Whole Foods grocer 10275 Little Patuxent Pkwy, Columbia, Maryland 21044 (Howard County), from my car in the designated parking lot.  I noticed a dark-skinned black “Christian” male approximately 5’9” in height who appeared to be from the City of Baltimore (unkempt, ignorant face, bubble eyes and a sneer).  There are two sets of doors from which you may enter. When I left my car, I noticed he was walking quickly from my left, where the actual exit door was to the right, where I needed to enter.

I proceed to walk to the far, right entry door closer to where the carts are kept outside as he appeared to photowalk to the left set. As soon as he saw me entering a separate set of doors, he did an about face and walked behind me and murmured something. I immediately zigged and went to the doors to the far left.  Apparently, this dark-skinned black “Christian” male was already harassing other patrons as I noticed a Caucasian female Howard County police officer in uniform standing alert in the eating area. I grabbed a handbasket and proceeded to the fresh food/self-service area.  The same dark-skinned black male “Christian” followed me, this time with Whole Foods employees noticing. I immediately proceeded to a different section and saw the police officer quickly move towards the black male to address his behavior.  After my purchase, I went to the eating area to obtain utensils and napkins and saw a black male eating, glance at me and then look down at his food.  I thought, ‘…must be quite embarrassing that a white woman in uniform have to monitor black males just so people can get groceries in peace.’  This is the so-called suburbs of Maryland.

Online Article: Street Harassment Is a Public Health Problem: March 20, 2017

Women who have been harassed may feel less trust in their community, with potential long-term impacts on mental health and well-being.

“I actually don’t remember when I was first harassed on the street, but I do remember when I first experienced it as an abusive act: I was an adolescent traveling with my mom in a crowded underground wagon, where men could easily touch women without anyone noticing and with little possibility to prevent it.

This was the experience of Lucía Vázquez, a researcher in Mexico City, Mexico. Unfortunately, her story is not unique.

According to a multi-country poll by YouGov, Mexico City ranks first among 16 international cities surveyed for physical and verbal harassment on public transportation. Street harassment, a form of gender-based violence against women, can include any act or comment perpetrated in a public space that is unwanted and threatening, and is motivated by a person’s perceived sex or gender.

Violence against women in public spaces is not exclusive to Mexico City, of course. Experiences of street harassment—from being whistled at to being touched without consent—are reported each day on crowd-sourced websites like Hollaback and Safecity in dozens of other locations from New York and New Delhi, to Lawrence, Kansas and Lubbock, Texas.

There is still much to be learned about how harassment and feeling unsafe in public spaces affects the well-being of women and girls—a topic I focus on in my doctoral research at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice—but the global scale of these experiences is concerning. Studies documenting the prevalence of street harassment in more than 35 countries show it could have widespread health effects across the globe.

Street harassment in Mexico City

One of the latest studies on this issue aimed to understand the extent of street harassment and its impacts on women, girls and communities in Mexico City. All of the women in this study had previously screened positive for intimate partner violence, a prerequisite for inclusion in the parent study.

Paola Abril Campos, a doctoral student at the Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is a native of Mexico City. She said in an interview for this article:

“Growing up, I learned to fake a phone call to my parents to feel safer and avoid harassment. I learned to wear not the clothes I wanted, but the clothes that made me feel ‘safe.’ I learned to take quick detours during my daily commute. And I learned to put up with the impotence I felt when harassed.”

Her experiences motivated her to conduct a study on street harassment that was published in January in Salud Pública de México, a journal published by Mexico’s National Institute of Public Health.

In this study, Campos and colleagues surveyed 952 women who were seeking health care in Mexico City’s community health clinics. More than 60 percent of the women, 62.8 percent, reported experiencing at least one form of street harassment in the past month alone. For one in four women, 26.8 percent, the abuse was physical.

The study found that the harassment, or fear of harassment, had negative impacts on the daily routines of these women. Nearly 70 percent reported some type of disruptions in their mobility, including missing, being late to or having to change jobs or schools. And yet, Campos said, “The costs and consequences of street harassment to women’s lives have remained invisible.”

The study also found that street harassment may diminish women’s sense of connectedness and trust in their community. Social isolation from one’s community can have long-term implications for well-being and can lead to chronic disease and poor mental health. Therefore, street harassment may contribute to these other public health concerns.

For the women in this study who were also victims of intimate partner violence, violence is a threat in both public and private. Jhumka Gupta, a global and community health professor at George Mason University and senior author of the study, stated: “Comprehensive interventions are needed to ensure women and girls’ safety both in public settings and in private spaces.”

Emerging solutions

There is some political will to address the issue in Mexico City. In conjunction with local authorities, UN Women has launched the program “Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces for Women and Girls,” which is promoting women’s safety through, among other mechanisms, providing women-only buses throughout the city.

The city’s mayor, Miguel Ángel Mancera Espinosa, is also supporting an initiative that distributes whistles to women that they can use when someone harasses them. The idea is to “break the silence” and bring attention to harassers.

Street harassment is a common problem in the United States too. A recent nationally representative survey found that 65 percent of U.S. women have faced street harassment at some point in their lifetimes. These numbers may be rising.

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that there has been a post-election uptick of harassment and intimidation of many marginalized groups, including women. However, in February a new bill aimed at preventing street harassment in Washington, D.C. was introduced to its city council. It seeks to “eradicate street harassment in the District of Columbia through education, awareness, data collection and culture change.” The bill is broad and inclusive in its definition of street harassment and comprehensive in its approach. Will other cities follow its lead?

DC council member proposes new bill to eliminate catcalling, street harassment

WASHINGTON – Catcalling on D.C. streets by District workers could soon be a thing of the past. D.C. lawmakers are reviewing legislation that would mandate all city employees to undergo street harassment training. And if they get caught harassing other people in public, they would have to face consequences.

“If we can train all of them on what is appropriate conduct and how to be good, helpful bystanders, then we have an army of people in the city looking out and helping create our safe spaces,” said Councilmember Brianne Nadeau.

The Ward 1 council member introduced the anti-street harassment bill this week. She said several personal confrontations on city streets led to her proposed legislation.

“Walking down 16th Street and being harassed by a government worker on duty in uniform,” she explained. “When I was commuting every day on the Metro, every block I would be harassed. One day, I was walking to work in my professional attire and somebody commented and I asked them not to do that. The response was, ‘Well if you don’t want us to comment, why do you dress like that?’

**********************************My Comment:  is that today’s grown black men STILL have to be taught what is appropriate behavior in an industrialized, democracy. Just shows they are animals cloaked in human flesh.

17 Women On The First Time They Were Catcalled

#FirstTimeIWasCatcalled shows some experiences are universal.

Unfortunately this is the one of those universal occurrences that all women can relate to.  The other reality is that some women who are witnesses pretend that it doesn’t happen or help to cover it up.  This is what America has steadily devolved into.

News Article: College Student’s Death Might Be Tied To Street Harassment

Like I said, in today’s America, the best thing a conscious woman can do today is avoid the majority of black males.  I read the original story on another news outlet and arrived at the same conclusion: another woman dies because she rejected a black male’s advances.  When street harassment ends in death.

http://www.refinery29.com/2016/01/100660/college-student-shot-new-years-eve-texas

Eric Jamal Johnson, a U.S. Marine, has been arrested for the murder of Sara Mutschlechner, a 20-year-old who was shot and killed in Denton, Texas, as she drove friends home in the early hours of New Year’s Day. With Johnson’s arrest come details of that night that suggest Mutschlechner’s death came after street harassment escalated to violence.

Denton police spokesman Shane Kizer told CNN that there was an exchange between Mutschlechner and her car’s three passengers and a car carrying five or six men. “It was an amicable conversation to begin with, but quickly went downhill and some derogatory statements were made toward the female occupants of that vehicle,” Kizer said. “Some comments were made back towards him, even a couple of threats were thrown. About that time, they were driving through the intersection…when several shots were fired.”

Mutschlechner, who was hit in the head by a bullet, died later that day at a local hospital. Kizer described the passengers who were in the car with Johnson when it fled the scene as “persons of interest.”

Emily May, executive director of anti-harassment nonprofit Hollaback!, told us, “Street harassment is on a spectrum of gender-based violence. When street harassment is okay, it makes groping okay. And when groping is okay, it makes assault okay. And when assault is okay, it makes murder okay. To make sure what happened to Sara doesn’t happen to anyone else, we need to stop this cycle where it starts.”
