Giving Tuesday - Celebrity Report: Jill Scott


By F. U. Jillscott
New York, N.Y. 

      A few days ago some anonymous person was challenging me on Twitter while I tweeted about Bill Cosby and she signed her last post "Good Bye Felicia" and I see now that singer Jill Scott has decided to use Giving Tuesday to get on Twitter to defend Bill Cosby publicly–and she is signing her posts "Good Bye Felicia" so  I guess the anonymous asshole I was dealing could be the same asshole as this semi-famous asshole, so now I will write, inspired by Jill Scott's public stance, in depth here, because she needs a confrontational feminist education. Here is MY charitable deed for Giving Tuesday. This one's for you, Jill.

     For years I heard rumors about Bill Cosby being a rapist. It never dawned on me that the reason these rumors existed for so long and never went away, was because it had been happening for so long and involved so many different women. Bill got away with it for 50 years because many powerful corporations would have been rocked by the scandal. He was confident that all of his production associates, corporate sponsors, live venue contacts, and philanthropic connections would do whatever they could to make horrific accusations like rape go away. Luckily for the human race, times have changed and the internet has finally allowed Bill Cosby's accusers to be heard. 

     Jill Scott has a problem with the accusers being heard. Jill Scott seems to be saying, who cares if he raped a bunch of white girls for 50 years as long as we brown people don't lose a false God. He has brown accusers too, so why are those brown people less important than Bill, Jill?


     People like Jill Scott want to blame the accusers instead of Bill. People like Jill say, how can you savage Bill's career by asking him to explain 50 years of vile behavior against so many young girls and women? People like Jill don't say how could Bill savage women's human rights over and over again and still think he deserves to have any career as a public figure and a role model? 

     One minute Cosby defenders, like Jill, ask how anyone could doubt the innocence of Dr. Cosby, the amazing, powerful, incredible, brilliant, communicator, one of THE most important voices of our time. And in the next breath they say they are speaking out for him because he is "poor old Bill" who shouldn't be bothered in his legacy years to answer to these allegations. Bill can't respond to the accusations; that he is infamous in professional circles of  systematic, brutal acts of violence against female professional acquaintances! Bill wants to call the accusations "innuendos" and let women like Camille hide him safely behind her wall of silence–or get women like Jill Scott to use her professional voice to play the race card on his behalf. 

     People like Jill Scott apparently feel more comfortable blaming women for what Bill did to them when they were unconscious teenagers.

     People like Jill Scott say, why didn't the accusers come out sooner? Duh! There is a reason drugging women and raping them is so popular with serial rapists, Jill: Because women who are drugged and raped don't remember everything right away. By the time they realize the full gravity of what happened there is no DNA and the shame of being ambushed and raped by someone they trusted paralyzes them further. Finally the harsh judgement of others, like a celebrity rapist's celebrity friends like Jill Scott for example, it's too much to deal with when they are so emotionally injured by the rape. Day-to-day survival is all they can focus on for a very long time. DUH, JILL, DUH!

Let's instead
ask honest, awesome Bill
why he has had so much sex outside of his marriage.
That is highly unusual behavior
for someone 
with so

     And while we are at it, Jill, we should ask Bill why so many of the women he claims he had consensual sex with actually felt violently raped afterwards. Can he describe his love-making techniques so we can clear this all up?

     We could also ask Bill if his philanthropy is part of his pathology because so many of his attacks seem to start out with the lie of genuine interest in the woman's talent before he poisons them and renders them unconscious and unable to defend themselves against his real intentions.

     We can ask Bill why he was trying to bully an AP reporter into scuttling the story once again. We can ask him that, can't we, Jill?

     OR We can ask Bill why a different reporter revealed that Bill Cosby sold them a story about his daughter being a drug addict if they promised to bury a story about other assault accusations against him. 

     We can ask Bill about how he asked for stories about him drugging and raping women to be buried, and how he was quoted as saying to the reporter in private that he knew if the multiple assault stories broke at the same time people might begin to think there was some truth to the accusations repeatedly leveled against him.

     We can ask Bill about the time an employee at Temple University accused him of drugging and assaulting her. We can ask why he avoided a court case by paying her off. We can ask him if his decision to pay her off had anything to do with the 13 women willing to testify against him in that case. Since paying her off is an admission of wrongdoing we can ask him why he drugged and raped that Temple University employee and why Temple wanted to build him a statue a few years after he raped their employee and why the Chairman of the Board of the Temple University Board of Trustees defended Bill in court against the rape accusations and NOT the Temple Employee who didn't have nearly as much money as Bill did for expert legal representation. We can ask him that, can't we Jill?


     Bill Cosby got famous telling jokes when he wasn't telling other brown people to be ashamed of who they are unless they are just like him. Genius comedians like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Richard Pryor were lectured by him publicly and privately and then held up like contaminated goods in his interviews because they used street language in their work. Bill Cosby smugly sold himself to America as the only brown person who could be trusted with American families. If there was a drought of good opportunities for brown people during Bill's heyday you can thank Bill Cosby who used his mega-fame and bully pulpit against every other brown comedian every chance he could get. He condemned hip hop artists and comedians communicating righteous anger as the drug war closed in, like the new Jim Crow, around working class society, driving a wedge between poor people and police, making daily life unbearably difficult and dangerous for everyone below the Huxtable tax bracket. Anyone with righteous anger in society was to be dismissed outright if they sounded "uneducated" or let their pants sag, according to Bill Cosby. Bill Cosby acted like wealthy brown people were the only ones who deserved a public forum, to be heard and respected. Bill Cosby was not good for brown people. He was good for white people who only like brown people that will never make them deal with injustice against brown people.

     Oh, one more thing. This is personal. Since Jill was using a retweet referencing old Michael Jackson child abuse allegations as some kind of proof that Bill Cosby will be found innocent one day, NO. I DO NOT THINK SO, HONEY. I, yes, me, the writer of this piece, actually had to stop Michael Jackson from trying to go in the bathroom with a little boy once, so from my personal experience I can tell you that Michael Jackson was a fucking pervert too and he was not used to anyone telling him "no". In fact, I may have been the one and only person who ever dared.

     It's time to stand on the right side of history, Jill. You are part of the problem. Stop making the world safer for rapists. 


Good Bye, Felicia.

Baby Jesus Has The Blues

By Lou Neetunez

     Proving once again that they don’t understand the true meaning of Christmas, thousands upon thousands of Americans piled on top of each other at the Macy’s in Herald Square to save pennies on things they will be throwing away this time next year.

     Some more devout shoppers observed that while Christ may be dead greed is not. “I only have three TVs and one of them isn’t big enough to impress my neighbors who I don’t like, so I need a new one.” one shopper admitted. “I am not here buying gifts.” another crazed consumer quipped, “I buy gifts at the 99 Cent Store on Christmas eve.” 

     Next we caught up with a woman who was dying to be on camera, “I’m here buying myself some shoes. My husband says I don’t need anymore shoes, the closet is full of them, but I love making him swim through a sea of expensive stillettos to find his one pair of old sneakers.”  When her husband tries to be rescued from his marriage by blinking three times and mouthing the words “Help Me. I hate living with this selfish Bitch.” his shoe addicted wife grabs him by the throat forces him to hold her purse while she tries on another pair of shoes, “He needs to remember that he took a vow to love me for better or worse. Christmas is all about showing love. Love is about sacrifice. He should try to be more like Christ who was happy to be nailed to a piece of wood and hung up as a warning to others not to ever criticize people’s greedy behavior. Isn’t that right, honey?” 

     Luckily for the Black Friday crowd corporations love to manipulate greedy American shoppers like puppets. An employee of Macy’s, forced to work in a mosh pit full of shopping monsters shrugs and does what she has to do to pay her bills. “Retail is the best career to have if you want to see the worst in people, (if you don’t count prostitution and police work). It should pay more but my manager loves to remind me that mannequins work for free and never ask for a raise because they don’t have kids and elderly parents to support and if I want to lose my job to keep talking but otherwise I should just shut my pie hole and keep ringing people up.”

     We asked a psychologist why Americans love shopping so much on days that used to be reserved for somber and spiritual reflection. “People have abandoned deep thinking and conscientous objectives in favor of looking at celebrity asses and violent amateur porn, they no longer want to reflect on their lives because they have become worthless by today’s standards and dangerous to the future.”

     As we leave the store to file this report we are sure that we learned at least one thing: Christ would not approve of all this shopping in his name–if everything was full price, but since it’s a big sale...

New York City, N.Y.

     Over a million Americans gathered for a concert, The Concert For Valor, in honor of the troops on Veterans’ Day.  Did you read that? One million Americans gathered on the Washington Mall to celebrate in honor of the Veterans.

     Some of the biggest names in music, true legends, performed. Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem... Some of the biggest A-List Stars spoke on behalf of Veterans, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Oprah... Between songs they talked about organizations that serve Veterans and how we as a society can contribute to making sure those who sacrifice so much for this country are properly taken care of. Amazing organizations like Team Rubicon...

     That night in the media, there was wonderful momentum behind the Veterans, for one shining night, and then the self-centered slut from Hell, Kim Kardashian released naked pictures of herself early the next day and totally interrupted the follow-up coverage of The Concert For Valor, the massive, beautiful, peaceful, joyful historical event that took place the night before.

     Veterans’ Day is the one day where we remember the brave people who keep our nation secure and the coverage was spreading into a second day, full steam ahead, until this pig who is in the press constantly over-using her ass for publicity, famous for doing nothing–for anyone,  gets the media’s full attention as soon as she drops her pants. The Veterans forgotten again. This is the state of the union.

     You may remember the last time Veterans were getting a lot of press, it was when Dr. Jose Mathews exposed the neglect at the VA hospital in St. Louis, or you may remember that‘s when Kim married Kanye.

     You may remember when Veteran Daniel Somers committed suicide leaving the most heart wrenching suicide note behind, detailing how the neglect at his VA hospital led to his unbearable suffering. Or you may remember that was when Baby North was born.

     Time and time again as soon as Veterans’ issues begin to get a lot of media support the media whore from hell comes out flashes some skin and the media turns it’s back on what really matters.

This is the state of the union.
