In yet another example of the insanity that is hard-left identity politics, a liberal black journalist has written an article in which she declares that Charlie Rose and other white abusers were racist because they didn’t sexually harass black women in the workplace.
That’s right, liberals are now actually arguing with each other over who the bigger victim is, even as most of the country looks on it shock at how insane one has to be to actually be angry that they were not sexually harassed while attempting to make the story not about the actual victims but about oneself.
The journalist, Esquire’s Rebecca Carroll, began her piece by describing her experience working for Charlie Rose in the late 90’s before pivoting into said insanity.
In 1997, I joined the production team of Charlie Rose’s popular interview show. I was the only black journalist on staff. At the time, there was little to no recognition of what it meant to be black and female in a workplace dominated by white men.
Twenty years later, in this watershed moment of examination and reckoning as one powerful white man after another is disgraced following allegations of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault, we’re still not talking about the ramifications for black women—or the broader connection to structural racism in America.
Charlie Rose’s show, a news program celebrating the art of the conversation, seemed like a perfect fit for me. I wasn’t a classically trained journalist or broadcast producer, but at 27 years old I’d published three interview-based books about race in America with a major publishing house.
At Hampshire College, the private liberal arts school known for its alternative curriculum, I had found my way to the Studs Terkel model of journalism: conversations as a way to tell stories.
That’s right, according to Carroll, the story isn’t about the victims of Rose’s harassment (who all happened to be white) but rather it is about “structural racism” and the terrible fact that Rose didn’t target women of color for said harassment.
As I’ve been prone to say lately, you truly can’t make this stuff up.
In the nearly two years I worked for the show, a mere fraction of the guests were black—more than one of whom told me in confidence after their appearance that they’d found Charlie’s tone condescending and dismissive.
This was the infrastructure of the show: All the valuable, sought-after guests were white—a common occurrence across media platforms.
And while many of us on staff were subject to Charlie’s unsolicited shoulder massages and physical intimidation, as he towered above us at a height over six feet tall, the women Charlie preferred and preyed upon—at least that I witnessed—were white. It was an environment that all but erased me, while simultaneously exploiting me as a black woman.
Yes, you read that correctly. Carroll is actually ranting about being “erased” from the environment because she wasn’t a victim of the bosses sexual harassment.
Carroll then attempted a slight backtrack from her transparent insanity but it too completely failed.
To be clear, I’m not suggesting it would have been preferable for Charlie to have preyed upon me, too—but rather, his sexualization of white women was a manifestation of gendered power dynamics in the same way that his not sexualizing me was an expression of racialized power dynamics.
To be clear, Carroll literally just implied that it was racist for Charlie not to prey on her and then immediately after (in the same article) tried to debunk herself.
This is the height of hard-left insanity folks!
Whats the difference between a black woman and a bowling ball?
You could eat a bowling ball if you had too…
ITS ONE FUCKING ABSURDITY AFTER THE NEXT
TEACH YOUR FUCKING SONS HOW TO BE MASCULINE MEN
TEACH THEM THE PROPER RESPONSE IS TO HEAP SCORN ON THESE MUD PEOPLE, WOMEN AND WEAK MEN
QUIT YELLING AT ME! YOUR HURTING MY WRISSSST!
Eisen, good points as always.
Masculine men? As in heterosexual not homo or bi?
This has gone completely off the edge of the Earth at this point. These fucking shit disturber Feminists have pushed the narrative of their masters to the point that total forced segregation of the genders is the only safe solution.
Get ready to bow to Mecca because those that will come next hold with none of this ridiculous shit.
Genius, ROTFLMAO! One of the best I’ve ever heard. Just like Eppe. Eppe, rest in peace, brother. We miss you more than you know.
Blacks are absolutely the dumbest people on earth.
true, they should have harassed her, i dated a pretty black girl and they are a good lay.
Gandhi, did you catch anything?
I was taught to know what it means to be white. and one of those things is never have sex with any female you wouldn’t marry. So you can be certain I wouldn’t ever have sex with any black woman.
she was pretty black, or just a little black?
These people are insane. And, honestly, those that give them the time of day are close to insanity themselves.
Those people are called Democrats.
Their analog watches are correct twice a day.
Their binary watches are so confused they are
probably never right.
Rellik, you mean democrats have watches? Now THERE’S a revelation. LOL.
What’s that bitch smoking? I wanna try some. [SARCASM]
Insanity alright, but hidden in plain view. Right under your nose.
As a white man, you don’t have a right to have a preference for white women!
Maybe it is because they are fugly?
My thought exactly Old Codger…. I hate to tell that Rebecca Carroll that maybe it is because she’s just a skanky crack-whore looking insane libtard.
I stick with my own kind just like white people really should do. I don’t know what this jezebel looks like but it sounds like she’ll be doing good just to get any of the homeboys interested in her. Black women are WORSE than white women. Always making false complaints, scheming, conniving, scamming. Can’t be trusted for shit.
Braveheart, weren’t you married to a Cuban woman? I don’t weigh in on racial issues much, one of my boys’ mother is black. And she’s quite the woman. Masters degree in business and speaks 3 languages. She’s a financial analyst nowadays and married to a pretty cool dude. She’s not your “typical” black woman, she’s not your typical woman. I always wondered why she liked me im just a truck driver but I met her at a gym and we clicked I guess. It didn’t work out but so what. She’s a damn good mom and good the whole way around. But women today, especially on the left, are just plain crazy. This wind bag is just making shit up to start trouble. It’s the same mindset as the new tax cuts are somehow going to hurt the majority rather than help. I got news for ya, never in your lives have you seen an economy like the one that will arrive quite soon. Don’t give this left wing bullshit any time. These people are batshit fucking crazy and they destroyed any credibility they had. They are actually broadening Trumps base and strengthening his support and they’re too fucking stupid to even realize it.
Jacknife, yes that’s true but she at least acted more American than Cuban when I first met her. She came from a well-to-do family that was highly educated. She already knew English as a second language before she escaped from Cuba. She played by all the rules and assimilated into our culture. She accepted our country just like it was in those days and never complained or tried to change anything about it like today’s libturds do. She’s the kind of immigrant I never had any problem with. It’s the illegals coming in here either taking jobs or getting on our programs that I have a problem with and I know everyone else here agrees with me.
Jacknife, it is always good to acknowledge those who are truly good and valuable people, and see the difference between thoee and vampirizing lowlifes like that woman.
Kudos to you!
Not to mention loud mouthed, stupid, fat, ugly, etc.
Genius, LOL! You’re right, I forgot to add those qualities. I stand corrected.
She’s just pissed because nobody wants a niggress. Even black males choose White women when they get enough money and fame to sway one.
They get all the synthetic Kardashians
A few of my nieces are “hooked up” with blacks.
The violence and lack of respect is disgusting.
I’m not a racist, but I hate Black American
I woudn’t call it culture, rellik.
True. No other race still has cousins swinging from trees or shooting monkeys with blowguns lol.
Or eating monkeys which is totally revolting.
LMFAO! You guys, I swear…..LOL.
Rellik, agreed about the culture. Their culture isn’t even worth mentioning.
The “missing link”. Not really missing IMO.
I’m not a racist either, I don’t watch nascar lol.
Just can’t please some people….ever!
Obviously Charlie liked white roses, not black roses. She is pissed because the sexual assault/harrassment MeToo movement has gone way beyond BLM, and that just doesn’t seem fair.
Not sexually harassing her wasn’t racist. I’ve seen pictures of her. Now I’m afraid to shut off my lights at bed time. She’s so ugly, even blind people try to gouge their eyes out after coming face to face with her.
Jim, you definitely can’t please blacks.
Prince Harry of England is marrying a Black American actress.
We all miss Epps merry Christmas to all his family
That’s an insult to Africans. I’m one, from Kenya and follow alt. media because I can’t stand the liberal mindset. Just because one, or a few Black people do or say something daft doesn’t make all of us daft.
In high school, one of the English exchange program tutors wondered why we spoke such fluent English, and, wonder of wonders! were wearing European clothes and could use modern utilities effortlessly. Cheekily, we joked that we’d gotten a crash course a week before the school term opened. She bought the story before realizing we were kidding.
From this encounter, we did not automatically assume all whites are ignoramuses.
Angel, you are smart, educated, obviously, and you make a good point.
I’ve always taken the MLK philosophy about the content of one’s character rather than color of one’s skin.
But it always takes observation and if you saw the wal-mart people in a previous article you know what I mean!
What’s that old saying…trust but verify.
I haven’t any use for the Walmartians. It call them wiggers. There needs to be a good culling. I cannot understand why no one will actually admit what the real problem is. Things will never improve until we address the root cause of all the trouble. And it isn’t Race, Religion or politics. Its too many parasite takers and too few Producing Makers. Back in the early America John Smith had the exact same trouble. He made a rule that those who do not work will not eat. Problem solved. Real simple solution to a obvious problem.
the true nature of women. If you’ve experienced kids you know
Millennia later and some women are still trying to feed men bad apples.
Some people are just freaking evil.
That’s why we have to MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN. AND not on white , but gew free.
Maybe she was just too damn ugly.
Saw a picture of her…not surprised no one sexually assaulted her rofl.
Charlie might have felt he did not have enough to give.
The problem is a sad one: most black American women are unfit, obese and do not take good care of themselves. That means they are at no risk of any sexual harassment from whites or Asians. There are some black women who have their stuff together, but they are rare catches.
Now, if you travel, you will find hot black women in France, many parts of Africa, Cuba. The ones who have not supped on an American diet of garbage tend to be the ones who are hot.
Women all over the world suffer sexual abuse and this woman complains that she didn’t have the right look to be a victim. Does she even realize how insane this sounds?
