Bessie Stringfield Woman Motorcyclist in the 1920s

Is she not a Queen Bada$$? Queen of Miami picture from AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame

I literally just learned of her and I am still amazed. A Black woman motorcyclist in the 1920s! This is what little girls need to know about. I wish I could do her story justice so I will give you a small summary. Bessie Stringfield was adopted by an Irish family as a young girl and as she got older she loved motorcycles. Of course her mom thought it was unlady like but her parents came around and got her a motorcycle at the age of 16. This young girl from that point on to adulthood rode her motorcycle everywhere. Let’s not forget this is the 1920s so she experienced racism and sexism, she learned how to repair her motorcycle herself, sometimes she even had to sleep on it. Another tidbit, this woman is traveling to different states without Google Maps, MapQuest, and this before real roads were created. She also ended up motorcycling important documents from state to state. See doesn’t that fascinate you?! Well you can learn more about her story in a cartoon format here: RejectedPrincesses.Tumblr. You can learn more about her in the AMA Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame.



Self-Defense Class in the DMV Area July 22



I am all for women, especially Black women from all walks of life, knowing how to defend themselves in everyday life. There are enough stats of missing girls and women within the DMV area alone that is staggering and hits close to home. My sister pushed me to take a self-defense class and I thank her for it because it showed me how much strength I had that I didn’t know and how poor my boundaries were. I would silently suffer while people crossed boundaries that made me feel red hot angry. But boundaries are about self preservation. If someone crosses them it activates our fight or flight response. And I am still learning to enforce those boundaries I have learned. But for those who are confused and unsure there is a Self-Defense class taking place on Andrews AFB from 9:30am-12:30pm. You can purchase tickets and find more detail on the link above. The price of learning to protect yourself and your loved ones is priceless.

Three University Alba students attacked by Whites

This story is just sad all around. Three young women beaten by white men and white women and no one helped them. This took place on a bus and people were more obsessed with recording the beating and telling them to shut up. I am beyond angry like what the heck? I am tired of this. The police officers did not care, the school did not care until the story got social media traction. My anger stems from the fact that no one helped these black women and these women were attacked for their race and gender.

No one sends their children to a school anywhere and expects to hear about them being assaulted. No one sends their child to school and think they are far from safe. Universities already do not have a good statistic on the violent and sexual assaults that take place on their campuses, they put the schools image ahead of the safety of the students who make them money. The Sunny Alba sent out some ridiculous lets get together letter out with some political correct garbage. I am thoroughly annoyed with all of this and people think the younger generation is somehow better, this proves they are not. There are still racist whites who find pleasure in this type of savage behavior, attacking black women, black girls, and recording it and probably laugh about it. The investigation should not even take long, they should be found, round up, and hauled off to jail. The white girls involved as well, feminist sisters my behind, also need to be round up and hauled of to jail. Everyone needs to be jailed, terminated, and have their life ruined.


The Victims sexually assaulted by Daniel Holtzclaw Say Their Lives Are Forever Changed.

The last time I mentioned this case it was still on-going. Since then the monster has been sentenced to 263 years behind bars and will be serving them consecutively. Thank you Father God!

However, the scars he left behind on his victims are not so easily healed. The 17-year-old and 50 plus year-old both describe how fear of police and being assaulted again has left them paralyzed. While they are survivors and courageous, they are also hurting in ways I cannot imagine.

I truly hope that monster rots in prison and enjoy his time there, while getting the same treatment he dished out. You can read the article below, but these two comments stuck with me and it makes me glad that someone sees the end game in all of this. I pray that these women receive the support and help that they need in this trying time.

“Benjamin Crump, a prominent civil rights attorney representing several of the women in planned civil litigation against the city, said the convictions and sentence should send a message to the rest of the country that victimization of black women won’t be tolerated.”

“Every one of these women, from the 17-year-old teenager to the 57-year-old grandmother, … they survived a horrific experience,” Crump said. “Hopefully, this is an example for the rest of America to follow, right here in Oklahoma. We stopped a serial rapist with a badge when everyone else had doubt.”

While the past abuse and exploitation of Black woman was ignored, it will no longer be accepted or ignored. I don’t give a flying f**k your race or gender you hurt or endanger Black girls and Black women, we will get you.

Victims Say Their Lives Have Been Changed Forever

BuzzFeed-“Our Hands Are Tied Because Of This Damn Brother-Sisterhood Thing”

“We already feel bad enough because we’re all black. … We already have so much against us,” she said. “For once we’re trying to protect ourselves. It’s not even about race, but of course [black men] have to make it about race by wanting us to protect [them]. I said, I’m not doing that anymore.”

“[They’re] trying to protect Morehouse at the expense of Spelman, which doesn’t make any sense to me,” she said. “It’s just a really deep-rooted sense of protecting the black man. … But everyone is victimizing the black woman, and where is that narrative?”

The article linked below is about how sexual assaults against Black women are handled on HBCU campuses. The Historicall Black College and Universities mentioned are Spelman, an all girls school, and Morehouse, an all boys school. The two HBCU’s have a long intertwined history, but today that bond comes at the expense of Spelman woman who are sexually assaulted by their Morehouse brother’s. As usual crimes against Black woman are ignored or disregarded, but the pressure is even worse when the crime is done by her fellow brother. Two women’s struggle with receiving justice for their assault is detail and its sad and disgusting. Black women must be protected and thought of as important because we are. This article reminded me why its important we put a lot of time into our girls and young woman, why we must value them and in turn let them know they are valued. That if anything happen to them we will seek justice for them rather then place burdens on them and blame them when they are the victim. I can’t summarize this article enough, but this problem exists not just on HBCU’s but in this male dominated world. However, it does not me we accept this. These two women are remarkable for telling their stories and doing their part to help others who have been assaulted and are silent. Please read this article and share it.

13 Black Women Sexually Assaulted by police officer Daniel Holtzclaw and the media is silent

“Black women are particularly vulnerable to sexual assault by police due to historically entrenched presumptions of promiscuity and sexual availability,” according to a recent report. “Historically, the American legal system has not protected Black women from sexual assault, thereby creating opportunities for law enforcement officials to sexually abuse them with the knowledge that they are unlikely to suffer any penalties for their actions.”

Please read the rest of this article here: “The Rape Trial Everyone in America Should be Watching”

I first heard about this monster’s actions through online blogs, not the news. The monster, Daniel Holtzclaw, who was a police officer, sexually assaulted 13 black women ages 17-57 years old; He deliberately targeted these black women because of their race. He would run their information and if they had any type of run in with police: stop them, assault them, and threaten them into silence. He got away with it until he encountered the wrong one, the 57 year old woman who did not live in his jurisdiction. The fact that such a person is allowed to wear a uniform and call himself a cop is problematic. What is even more problematic is the racial make up of the jury, an all white jury. His attorney is deliberately trying to smear the women’s credibility. I do not care if a person is a crack addict, no one deserves to be sexually assaulted, period! The media silence is troubling and disheartening, these women matter. What he did to them and took from them is indescribable and he deserves to pay for it.He is a monster and filthy human being who used his position of authority and power to prey on children and women knowing that racism would allow him to get away with it. No more silence, let us bring attention to this trial to ensure that justice is served. That no other Black women will have to be afraid. That these victims receive the justice due to them. There will be consequences for messing with Black woman, this is the warning that needs to ring out loud and clear around the world. Blackwomenlivesmatter and its not up for debate!
