Theballerlife.com just heard that black feminist Kola Boof went off on comedian D.L Hughley for his controversial comments he made about black women during a recent interview with NPR.org.
In case you missed it (click here), D.L. Hughley told NPR.org host Michelle Martin that black women are the most angriest group of people he has ever met.
Here’s what Rhymeswithsnitch.com is reporting:
What got Kola riled up was D.L. explaining this entry from Chapter 17 of his book:
“Being a dad to daughters is very different from being a dad to sons. The dangers are different and the way they listen to you is different. I’m sure every father feels the same way that I do about his daughters. I love them, but I don’t like them. Who likes women?”
Here’s what Kola and Hughley had to say on Twitter below:
Kola Boof, an Egyptian/Sudanese writer and poet, also wrote a blog post about her feelings toward D.L. Hughley.
Here’s what she had to say below:
It’s long overdue for Black women to wake up and
stop supporting these Black men who not only despise Black women…but encourage the rest of society to demonize, disrespect and abuse black women.
It’s bad enough that Black men have never
protected Black women in this Racist society.
But to encourage others to hate and abuse Black women is unforgivable.
D.L. Hugley constantly teaches young black boys
and Non-Black people that it’s O.K. to slander and
despise what he claims are…”angry ugly Black women.”
I see D.L. Hugley as an enemy of Black women. He exploits us to make money but he despises us. We need to completely stop supporting men like him.
