New Target: Rich White Men Behaving Badly
arrives to the premiere of “Grindhouse” at the Orpheum Theatre on March 26, 2007 in Los Angeles, California.
One thing I can say about corporate America, this entity is the epitome of what America should be or we want it to be. Large corporations hold up the legislative rules in our society. Corporate America says you should NOT do the following:
- No matter what, you cannot say the N-word. And, you can’t hold plantation style weddings with Black slaves.
- You can’t ”ruthie” a girl and take advantage of her sexually. It’s against the law.
- You can’t divorce your wife and marry your 18 year old step-daughter. But, you will still be able to make movies, depending if you are Woody Allen.
- Do not take sexual advantage of a fellow employee with threats of career retribution.
Rich white men, you can’t be a pig about your wants and desires just because you know how to bully a deal, by the way that’s why you are famous and rich, or just plain powerful and rich. I can’t believe the white men who have tumbled. Even my own white man, Matt Lauer. $25 million dollar man. Dang I suspected Matt when it was rumored about a love child with a co-host. Where there is smoke there’s fire. Or, what is done in the dark will come to light. More motherly sayings.
This all started with Billy Bush and the conversation he had with the presidential candidate, Donald Trump. I love the statement …. Grab ‘em by the pussy. Sexual harassment has become a national reckoning effecting rich white men in various sectors of our society. Here are a few who have fallen.
Billy Bush – Access Hollywood with Donald Trump
Harvey Weinstein – movie mogul
Charlie Rose – host PBS and CBS
Bill O’Reilly – FOX talk-show host
Glen Thrust – prominent political journalists
Russell Simmons – Hip-Hop Mogul
Senator Al Franken – Ex- Entertainer
James Levine – music director for Boston Symphony
And there is more ….
The daily question is who is next?
Where I use to work they were going through a renovation and we could have suggestions on the design of our new work space. Hooray! But unfortunately, it got out of hand among the boss and one of her employees, not me! He insisted on a bigger office and the boss said no and thus began the man’s crusade for a couple of inches. We ended up with a design less adequate for our needs. Why? Because the boss was taken off her game and was being attack where she was the most vulnerable, resolving conflict. We went from one office with window for the boss and cubicles for us to everyone had an office and center area was open. What’s wrong? Well, where are we going to put our massive amount of equipment and noise? In the only place left, the center area where it was now necessary to buy a noise barrier because of the constant loud noise. Someone missed the BIG picture.
Saying all that to say, the Republic Party missed the big picture too. For the last 8 years they stopped everything they could coming from President Barack Obama. What happen? Republicans have control over Congress so why were you not planning for the next election for president?
Now, look what happened. Trump is the Republican Party’s candidate for president of the United States. This has been an interesting political season. The republicans have a candidate that they didn’t want. I guess that time has come and gone.
This political season is crazy! The Republican Party is terrified that Donald Trump will be their candidate for president and he is winning. Lawd, what they going to do! Well, the news reported that the number 2 candidate – Ted Cruz and number 3 candidate – John Kasich are plotting against the number 1 candidate – Donald Trump. Stay tuned for the Republican Convention. More excitement to come.
Is anyone shocked at the violence. I could see it coming. When Trump made statements that border on prejudice and racist this was bound to happen. How can you run for president and not be inclusive? Geez, I don’t get the logic in stating “I love the poorly educated.” Who are the poorly educated? Is this a political correct term?
