it is so liberating to really know what i want, what truly makes me happy, what i will not tolerate. i have learned that it is no one else’s job to take care of me but me.

    POS pig charged with raping 8 black women finds support online among racist, evil scum
    September 3, 2014

    Daniel Holtzclaw, the Oklahoma City police officer arrested in August and charged with sexually abusing eight black women, has supporters online who have raised more than $7,000 for the rapist police officer, according to MLive.com.

    According to the Raw Story, the 27-year-old cop is facing charges of “rape, forcible oral sodomy, sexual batter and indecent exposure” for allegedly assaulting women he encountered while on patrol. Prosecutors say Holtzclaw frequently stopped black woman between the ages of 34 and 58 “and threatened to arrest them or physically harm them unless they exposed themselves, allowed him to fondle them or had sex with him.

    Holtzclaw, who has been an officer with the Oklahoma City Police Department for three years, is being held on $5 million bond, and friends and family have created an evil-ass Facebook page called “Justice for Daniel Holtzclaw,” the Raw Story reports.

    The page has received some 500 likes and also offers T-shirts for sale that read “Free the Claw” and “#JusticeForDanielHoltzclaw.” There is also a crowdfunding page created by Holtzclaw’s sister on the website GoFundMe. She hopes to raise $100,000 for her brother’s legal defense; so far the site has netted $7,390.

    "The pursuit of justice will be lengthy, but with the support of family, friends and the community, Daniel Holtzclaw will be vindicated and justice will prevail," the GoFundMe page reads. "All funds raised will assist Daniel and his family as they seek the justice Daniel Holtzclaw so rightly deserves."

    Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
    If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

    Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoBLolqUaNg 

    Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
    No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

    (Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

    I don’t know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, ‘Well, if I’d known better I’d have done better,’ that’s all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, ‘I’m sorry,’ and then you say to yourself, ‘I’m sorry.’ If we all hold on to the mistake, we can’t see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can’t see what we’re capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one’s own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that’s rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.

    BETTY BOOP - The Original Story

    Ms. Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was an African-American singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at the (The Cotton Club) in Harlem.


    Ms. Jones singing style went on to become the inspiration for Max Fleischer cartoon character’s voice and singing style of “Betty Boop”.

    YES: “Betty Boop” was a black woman. 

    Singer Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and copied it, stole it. Ms. Jones’ “trademark” singing style for a recording of, “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” with interpolated words such as ‘Boo-Boo-Boo’ & ‘Doo-Doo-Doo’ in her songs at a cabaret was a style all her own. 

    An early test sound film was also discovered, which featured Baby Esther performing in this style, disproving Kane’s claims. During the $250,000 infringement lawsuit, Esther’s manager testified that , “Helen Kane & her manager saw Baby’s act somewhere between 1928-1929.Baby Esther’s manager also testified that Helen Kane had saw Baby Esther’s cabaret act in 1928.” 

    Supreme Court Judge Edward J. McGoldrick ruled: “The plaintiff has failed to sustain either cause of action by proof of sufficient probative force”. In his opinion, the “baby” technique of singing did not originate with Kane.

    As an added note, scholar Robert G.O’Meally said, Betty Boop, the WHITE CARTOON character herself had, as it were, a BLACK grandmother in her background. 

    Baby Esther was presumed dead by 1934, just when the lawsuit had ended.
