It's been over A YEAR AND A HALF since the heartless, unjustified, unavenged execution of Oscar Grant III, and now with the July 8, 2010 acquittal (by way of a lenient, technicality in the verdict) of his murderer, Johannes Mehserle, the young 22-year-old father has been met with yet ANOTHER devastating blow, even IN DEATH, by way of an unjust justice system. If you're a woman who was or is concerned about this terrible tragedy, take a minute to think about your man, your brother, your male cousin(s), your father or your grandfather, and think about how easily this kind of thing could happen to them. Contrast that reality with that fact that at the same time Oscar Grant was murdered, Beyonce was projecting a musically hateful and bold rant against men called "If I Were A Boy". Ask yourself the following questions: a) If Beyonce WAS a boy, would she have been in the same position as Oscar Grant? b) If YOU were a male, would YOU have been in the same position as Oscar Grant? __________________________________________
In our first installment of "Hard Points To Ponder", we take a look at veteran man-hating music icon Beyoncé.
In the fall of 2008, her latest LP, a concept album entitled "I Am... Sasha Fierce" garnered two propaganda singles, one of which was the infamous "If I Were A Boy", in which she portrays a police officer in a sort of reverse-role situation, while monolithically stereotypical and sexist lyrics infect the ears of millions of impressionable young females.
But if you are a female, have you ever stopped to think about what it REALLY is like to live as a boy or a man? Have you considered the life of Oscar Grant III, a father and future husband who was unarmed and murdered execution-style in Oakland on the BART by transit police? Would you REALLY want to live in a man's shoes? Would it be worth it?
Females NEVER experience police brutality, nor do they face having to pay child support and alimony, nor are they denied any basic human rights. So, why didn't Beyoncé, knowing all this, pay homage to Grant's family or make a statement on his behalf, or even sing a song for him?
Because Beyoncé cares NOTHING for men, and definitely not for Oscar Grant!
What if Beyoncé were a boy? What then? __________________________________
