It's Time To Take A Stand...
Stand Up For Our Women and Let Our Daughters See That WE CARE...
October 6, 2009
The organized showing of Unity as a People, and the actions of distrainment, disgust, and protest start now....
Not JUST R Kelly, it is time to let the Music (Entertainment) Industry as a whole know we will no longer tolerate the disenfranchisement, degradation, and devaluing of Black women.
Let the protests, boycotts, and dialog begin!
We must once again operate under a strict code of accountability and responsibility. We've allowed a stance of complacency to fester for far too long. Our elders and ancestors would not be proud!
We have women and children to protect, and a great history and legacy to uphold.
"This demonstration will serve as a message to whomever, that if you are coming to or near Philly (or Atlanta), it's not going to be unchallenged...
We don't care what the courts say; there is a price to pay to The Village." ---Empress Chi
We do extend the opportunity for R Kelly to convene with the Atlanta Village (extended family) to discuss the matter and set the table for accountability and reckoning.
Forgiveness is always an option, but one must first SEEK atonement.

IF WE DON'T PROTECT US WHO ELSE WILL?!
BWDL has set forth efforts to very clearly, specifically identify and relentlessly "STEP TO" any of those in the music industry (man or woman alike) who have supported and perpetuated the exploitation of Afrikan women. The intent is to collectively convey who they are and take action. BWDL and all supporters intend to do that in EVERY WAY POSSIBLE.
The names of the top ten artists, record labels, companies, etc. that have made it a priority to create and push the industry's stereotypic mind game and exploitive objectives, will be obtained by way of several polls conducted by the National MWM. These identifications will be released at the May 2010 Summit. MWM and BWDL will then begin the process and work to decrease the sales of these persons' and/or companies' concert tickets, CD's, clothing line products and so forth.
As mentioned above, before taking actions MWM, BWDL and their supporting communities we will be prepared to sit down with anyone to discuss this matter in a Village (extended family) and/or business manner; however, we will also be prepared to handle it in whatever way necessary.
The bottom line: THE MADNESS HAS GOT TO END NOW, AND IT WILL!

"A noble failure may be of more value than a petty success. The man who sets his goals too low and who accepts too little as enough, squanders the talents and abilities with which Almighty God and nature have endowed him. Let us set our goals too high; let us demand more of ourselves than we believe we possess."
H.I.M Haile Selassie I
"The sun does not speak. It is mute in the awesome brilliance of its being as it awakens and sustains life. It does not boast. It does not need or heed accolades and rhymes. It simply does as the sun does. There is strength in modesty. Humility is the garment of fortitude and substance. We must do and be as Afrikan men, as Afrikan women do and are; quiet, clear and engaged in an impassioned pursuit of truth, righteousness, and sovereignty."
