BUNA’s resident feminist caucus was suspiously silent on Rihanna’s silence on her beat down by Chris Brown. Afterall, giving the victim the benefit of the doubt would seem like good practice, especially if the perp was convicted for said beat down. However, the feminist caucus can be silent no more: it is totally fucked up for Rihanna to break her silence as a promotional tool for her new album.

Since the interview for Good Morning, America hasn’t broadcast yet, BUNA can only interpret Rihanna’s statement, “This happened to me – it can happen to anyone” as probably the strongest thing she’ll have to say about why men and women shouldn’t hit one another. This happened to me—it can happen to anyone…with a high-paying career hanging in the balance. So be sure your publicist carefully manages when, and if, you do something to help other young women who might be going through the same thing and who you need to buy your latest record.

Synergy, my ass. We’re so mad we can’t even stand to include a picture of her with this post. Drinking on the hater-aid? Yes, a deep, long slug of lemon-lime hateration.

thank you, Quincy, for not talking bollocks

Seriously, y’all? Can we have a black folks confab? Why are black people suddenly claiming Michael Jackson?

BUNA wishes we had world-TiVO beause we would replay all the shit people talked about MJ not wanting to be black no mo’, all the salacious gossip BET spread, and note the deafening silence during his alleged pedo-trials. And then, we’d juxtapose that with the sudden outpouring and re-claiming of his Royal Badness as black. BUNA is sickened, chagrined, and otherwise nausated by the hypocrisy.

Usually the black celebs who act un-Christian-like and perpetuate foul misogyny and then thank god profusely at the BET Awards is disgusting enough, but to have all that coupled with posthumous blackness? BUNA’s going on a hunger strike and will not be partaking of KFC with Magic Johnson in MJ’s memory.

Luckily, law professor Patricia Williams never coons. Click here to read more.

BUNA will be playing catch up for a while on all the trifflingness some of us have gotten up to, so bear with us. For example, though her blog is now defunct on Blogger, we concur, like, to the millionth degree with this sistah’s assertions about little black girls dancin’ like hoochies in videos.

This shit is unacceptable. It is not cute. These girlchildren are not “expressing themselves.” They’re mimicking the straight up wack behavior they see the older women in their lives exhibiting and what they think boy and men want to see.While I am all for the creativity and spirit of African-American dance, this shit’s just skanky.

Start a movement: let’s keep our girls off the pole! (yeah, we stole that from Chris Rock who is so not cooning!)
