Hughley Shows That Misogyny Still Plagues The Revolution

D.L. Hughley is  a comedian that has been an extremely prominent figure within the national black community. His material typically addressed the current state that black Americans live in the United States. I think it is ironic that someone that speaks often about the “revolution” struggles to respect women, especially black ones. In 2012 D.L. Hughley stated that he has, “never met an angrier group of people” than black women; his said this in an attempt to promote his book. His book was titled, “I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up.” Mr. Hughley obviously needed some help with his perceived image of black women.
This year Hughley is gearing up to release a TV show. When he was asked about his previous comments about black women and whether he truly believes they are angry he responded with feedback that ended in a James Baldwin quote, “to be Black and conscious is to be angry all the time.” He states, “It’s not wrong to be angry, it’s wrong to not know why.” I agree that there are a lot of reasons to be angry as a black American, though his comment does not help black women with their constant battle of sexism in American and black communities. I still am upset that know one has taken the time to teach D.L. Hughley how damaging his words are in the progress of the movement. The battle of sexism within the black community reinforces the stereotypes form in all other non-black american’s minds.

Two black women running for mayor? For some black men, that’s a nightmare

These two women are running the mayor of Chicago. Lori Lightfoot (left) and Toni Preckwinkle (right) the only two probable candidates for mayor. March 3, 2019 an article was published by Sun-Times that discusses how these two women pose a threat to men of the Chicago area.  
The claim was made that, “Black women are successful because white men set them up for success as a more palatable alternative to black men.” I believe that is appeared that Black men in 2019 cannot stomach to see a woman in influential political roles, but they would go so far to claim white people assisted them in this endeavor. The progress of black women is constantly watered by people blaming assistance as the only reasons for their success. Sexism in the black community has historically been a problem. I pains me to see that a city like Chicago could have such problems with Black women progression. This goes to show that no matter the time the past is liable to repeat itself.
These women have a life of accomplishments that prove them worthy of this role, yet black men cannot accept this. The article concludes by saying, “Lightfoot and Preckwinkle have pledged to bring equity and new resources to Chicago’s beleaguered and bereft black communities. By many measures, it’s black men and boys who need them most.”
