DOCUMENTARY: “Anita: Speaking Truth to Power.”

Recently watched this powerful and compelling documentary about Anita Hill and the sexual assault case where she provided testimony against Judge Clarence Thomas who was then nominated for the US Supreme Court.

At the time Hill, who was a former employee of Thomas’ (who shamefully called the proceedings a case of ‘high-tech lynching’ as a way to deflect from the issue of sexual harassment by using race as a factor - the only factor), was a law professor at the University of Oklahoma where she grew up. She gave her testimony live on national television in October 1991 and, unbeknownst to her, the effect of her decision to speak out would almost immediately spark what the Boston Globe called, “a passionate debate about sexual harassment in the workplace and elsewhere”, and one that is far from over.

In a world where gender and racial oppression are systemic, and where victims are blamed and perpetrators shielded by the oppressive and shaming nature of rape culture, Anita Hill’s story remains both relevant and necessary in its telling. What’s I found particularly interesting about the film is how director Freida Mock conveyed this story in such a way that made it both Anita’s story and that of so many women in the United States and around the world.

Hill, now a professor and Brandeis University, has dedicated much of her life to speaking about sexual harassment and gender issues, as well as how these matters often intersect with race, as well as helping others find their voice.

I keep on thinking of all the weird/stupid stuff I said at work today. I don’t know if its just because I’m more anxious since my mum went to Ireland today to visit a sick relative or if what I said was just more weird than usual.

People were talking about the Simpsons and someone mentioned having a VHS and I said my parents bought me and my brother the Simpsons too hot for tv VHS which had an episode with Marge and homer having sex in various places and how inappropriate it was since I was like 7. Then one of them gave the other a weird look and I think they thought my parents bought us a Simpson’s porno…

Explaining that has actually made me realise how silly it is to be worried about that. Like thinking someone’s parents bought a VHS of a Simpsons porno is way more weird than what I said.

Captain America in a turban! I filmed this fun segment with SIKH CAPTAIN AMERICA for “Totally Biased with W, Kamau Bell.”

If people are freaking out about a Black Captain America, how would they deal with a SIKH CAPTAIN AMERICA?

4/19/2014 marked 25 years ago since the City of New York violated the rights of 5 innocent Black & Latino boys who became known as the Central Park Five. 
25 years ago, after being coerced into confessing, the Central Park Five spent 7-13 years in jail for a crime they never committed. 25 years ago, Donald Trump took out full page ads in 4 New York City newspapers calling for the execution of five INNOCENT Black and Latino boys. 
11 years after filing a $250 million civil suit, the Central Park Five have yet to receive a settlement or formal apology. Justice delayed IS justice denied!
