DuVernay, Viola, Legend: Celebs Join Time’s Up Aggressive Campaign Targeting R. Kelly

Published

by G. Brown

One of Monday’s trending topics was #MuteRKelly.   An appeal letter from Women of Color Time’s Up announcing they are joining the online  campaign to stop a man they consider a sexual predator.  The women said in their letter,…” We call on people everywhere to join with us to insist on a world in which women of all kinds can pursue their dreams free from sexual assault, abuse and predatory behavior.”

The women  of color lists among the singer’s crimes that he “married a girl under 18 years of age“,  “was indicted on 21 counts of child pornography” and  that he”has faced allegations of sexual abuse and imprisonment of women under threats of violence…”

The women called out Kelly’s RCA Records label, Ticketmaster and streaming services Spotify and Apple Music to pressure them to cut ties with the singer.

Other singers and celebs are joining in the chorus to mute Kelly’s career with justice.

 

 

Last week, radio jock Tom Joyner announced that his nationally syndicated morning show would no longer play Kelly’s music as part of the #MuteRKelly effort.

Kelly has denied some of the accusations in the past, but now as more celebs raise their voices with the masses, it’s hard to say if the renewed momentum will lead to a new investigation.

The women of color say they’re taking a stand on the abuses and allegations women have been making against Kelly for more than 20 years now and vow “with great vigilance and a united voice to anyone who wants to silence us; Their time is up”.

Do you think that the Cosby verdict spells the end for Kelly?  Do you think that Black men accused of sexual assault and predatory crimes are treated the same as White men who have been accused?  Or do you think this #MuteRKelly is unfairly targeting Kelly?

    We have to stop walking among, hiding crimes and the criminals that comment them, I don’t like walking among murderers rapists, so if some one has commented a crime in our community they need to be dealt with, we can’t holla about the injustices against us, and hide or condone the ones we do to our own people, we can’t have it both ways

    Off topic: Did you guys read the comments by Issa Rae, “I propose that black women and Asian men join forces in love, marriage and procreation. Educated black women what better intellectual match for you than a Asian man. I’m not talking Filipinos; they’re like the blacks of Asians. I’m talking Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese.” I’m not making this up, Issa Rae wrote this self hating garbage.

    When the feminzazi’s tell celebrity black women to jump, black women say,”Yessa massa.” This white female hate group continues to use black women to destroy black men; thus destroying their own race. Unfortunately black women like Ava Duvernay, Viola Davis and Oprah Winfrey choose to pleasure the demands of the white race instead of empowering the black race. The feminazis are not trying to mute white sexual predators like Stephen Collins, Woody Allen or X-Men director Bryan Singer; I wonder why?

      Why aren’t these women targeting Ghetto Gaggers, Charlie Sheen,The Waffle House, Harvey Wienstien?

    I said it before and I will say it again, black women should never protest and fight along side the feminazis. The Times Up and the Me Too movement are code words for white power. They are the new female version of the KKK. Look what they did to Boule Bill. Now they’re targeting R Kelly. Two messages to all black women; one, you are black; two, white people hate you. If you disagree with me, ask Michelle Obama. How many times did the feminazi’s call the former first lady racial slurs? Don’t worry I’ll wait!

    Clearly,the guilty conviction of Dr. Bill Cosby has served to ignite a renewed interest in the problem of sexual assault and predatory crimes against women of color and as a consequence of the Cosby case and conviction, we are seeing a surge in the #MuteRKelly movement.
    Despite whether R. Kelly is or ever has been a sexual predator is really not at issue. What is at issue is whether all of these “so-called” celebrities and/or leaders in the Black community, can find the courage and back-bone to get behind a #StopPoliceBrutalityAgainstPeopleOfColor movement. R. Kelly is a private concern among the family and friends whom his alleged misbehavior has affected. Black people are always easily distracted from the real problems facing their communities, which include unfair police practices and the staggering high rates of unemployment, to say the least. Colin Kaepernick is truly ahead of his time.
