More re: Ashley Judd’s Infamous Rap

From the IJR…

For those who missed it, Ashley recited a four-minute poem titled “Nasty Woman” written by 19-year-old Franklin, Tennessee, resident Nina Donovan.

The fiery speech implied President Trump promotes sexism, racism and homophobia.

In the poem Judd recited, it stated that Trump uses his daughter Ivanka as his sex symbol, calling their relationship an inspiration for his “wet dreams.”

In the wake of her controversial speech, the “Divergent” actress received both praise and strong criticism.

One of those people responding to her speech is her own sister, country music singer Wynonna Judd.

While Wynonna typically uses her social media to spark up conversations with her fans and to share bits of faith, the “Wynonna & The Big Noise” singer addressed her thoughts on her sister’s speech:
For those who commented on Wynonna’s social media pages asking her thoughts on her sister’s anti-Trump speech, she tweeted out:
While Wynonna may not have gone into depth about her political views, she wanted to make her stance on her country clear, expressing her patriotism, despite what her sister may say or feel.

MAYA ANGELOU @ President Clinton’s Inauguration

from On the Pulse of Morning



A Rock, A River, A Tree

Hosts to species long since departed,

Marked the mastodon,

The dinosaur, who left dried tokens

Of their sojourn here

On our planet floor,

Any broad alarm of their hastening doom

Is lost in the gloom of dust and ages.


But today, the Rock cries out to us, clearly, forcefully,

Come, you may stand upon my

Back and face your distant destiny,

But seek no haven in my shadow,

I will give you no hiding place down here.


You, created only a little lower than

The angels, have crouched too long in

The bruising darkness

Have lain too long

Facedown in ignorance,

Your mouths spilling words

Armed for slaughter.


The Rock cries out to us today,

You may stand upon me,

But do not hide your face.

Why Girl is BACK

Dear Friends:

Since the Presidential, I didn’t know what to say anymore or even if anything was worth saying.  Now that Trump will be sworn in on Friday, I must get back.

I’ve outlined my thoughts, state-of-mind, and actions on the days following Nov. 8, 2016.

ELECTION, Tues., Nov. 8, 2016

 Nov. 9 is a day that will live on in infamy. Trump has been elected President-Elect.

Pandora’s box has been opened and will never close again in our lifetime or our children’s lifetime.

Slithering out are the Untruths, headlines that are not true but read/speak like truth. Photos of burning cars taken yesterday but in reality are from 2012. Hate crimes transpire, despicable name-calling and suggestions of separate water fauceta and restrooms—Whites separated from Blacks. On fire are anger, hate, greed, and people hating sexism, skin color. A cry to hate.

Hate. Hate. Hate.

The Volcano has erupted.

Day ONE (Nov. 9)

Woke up feeling like someone had punched me in the stomach.



Nausea and Diarrhea throwing up words on Facebook. I couldn’t stop myself.



Feeling like I had had a clitorechtomy



Talking to friends—those who would support me in my grief. Communicating any way I could even talking to people on the streets, restaurants and stores.


Walking with my sisters in Westwood, California, The Hammer Museum staged a public art event by Lara Schnitger, SUFFRAGETTE CITY.



Back at the Hammer Museum watching feminist films and learning about Inez Milholland Boissevain who was a suffragist, labor lawyer, World War I correspondent, and public speaker who greatly influenced the women’s movement in America.

In 1916 she went on a tour in the West speaking for women’s rights as a member of the National Woman’s Party. She undertook the tour despite suffering from pernicious anemia and despite the admonitions of her family who were concerned about her deteriorating health. On October 22, 1916, she collapsed in the middle of a speech in Los Angeles, California at Blanchard hall and was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital. Despite repeated blood transfusions, she died on November 25, 1916.

Milholland’s last public words were, “Mr. President, how long must women wait for liberty?”
