America the Great Hypocrite

The world is abuzz with the video of a Sudanese woman getting flogged for breaking Sharia law by wearing pants under her burqa. People are crying out against this clear act of violence and oppression against women, but how easy do we point fingers in a shattered glass house.

It is so convenient to critique someone else's barbarism when you can access hundreds of videos featuring violent acts against women. How easy do we forget the hundreds of videos of women getting beaten and punched in crowds that cheer or do not interced. Ahhh, great US of fucking A.

1 ish talking intellectuals holla at a sista:

I hate people.

Beating this woman for the clothes she chose to wear, it's reprehensible.

Almost as disturbing as the video itself was the laughter from the crowd. Goddamn them all.
