How completely sexist of the Young Turks to describe this woman as "sad and pathetic" why are you attacking the women and not the man who did the raping. Are they so completely unaware that within these situation, often there is also abuse and coercion by the man onto the woman. UGH

Wow, then why are we not critically talking about Beyonce colluding in the deconstruction of herself as a slave, instead of being hung up on "sensationalism, and "Hyperbole". Again we must be reminded that the function behind using rhetorical devices is to emphasize a point. And that the point is the core issue that should be discussed. The point that I hear is, ya know...look at all of the multi-formed, multi-dimensional and destructive patterns and actions Imperialist, White Supremacist, Capitalist, Patriarchy has taken on deep within all of us, in this case, the way in which this "powerful" wealthy black women can participate, in a sense, in her own objectification as a women along with the objectification of other women, particularly younger black women--through her role in media as a top celebrity...ya know...with how she portrays woman-hood. I see her long blond hair, body bared along with the whitening of her image as a powerful representation of white supremacy and patriarchy. Obviously chosen and decided by many different handlers including her who are also complicit with white supremacy and patriarchy.  And i recognize how difficult it is for many of us to truly acknowledge that and  our investments in "The master's house", or for me, Supremacy in general. I think, bell is truly attempting to call us awake from the fantasy of believing that we can shape our liberation through or with the same apparatuses that has enslaved us, because it doesn't work, and that we must truly love and really work for justice, more than our work for wealth, fame, money, or identities, to have REAL liberation! and ya know, work for Justice isn't about the praise, it's about the planet, it's about it's species, and it's about it's people!

We also need to make a strong critical distinction between a man who has not worked in any seriously long term sustained action on behalf of justice for women and a woman who has such as bell hooks. And not a Bill O Reiley. Context is always important.

I'm sorry, but i just have to say, this was a complete and utterly uncritical understanding and analysis of what hook's voiced about her seeing "a part of beyonce as a terrorist" on the imaginations and bodies of young black girls. It is not simply beyonce acting alone, but it is her collusion with those capitalist and patriarchal forces that narrow and constrict notions and representations of woman-hood down to tragic proportions. Fatal proportions. The impact is undeniable. Many young and adult women alike are viewing and metastasizing these images in ways that can be understood as devastating. As devastating as the global destruction of women's bodies around the clock. bell hooks has always demanded that we think more critically about the complexities and many forms and aficionados of patriarchy as a destructive system that has awful consequences for the bodies and minds of of us all, particularly women of color! I really just want for us to grasp that as a culture.

I do NOT think that men are exempt from experiencing their ego's acting out when another man or woman is successful and may be receiving more (real or perceived) glory momentarily. Men, as a group, are just as prone to insecurity in their thinking around the issue of another's success. This thought pattern is branched from a popular term called "Scarcity thinking", which assumes that one person's glory and success will negate another's because there isn't enough to go around. Largely a by-product of capitalism, which is an economic system that creates real material scarcity and thereby shapes social anxieties and fears around scarcity, when in fact there truly is enough of what is needed for everyone in this universe. It is an abundant Universe and I think it is a fiction to believe otherwise, irregardless of gender. I'm surprised Iyanla voiced that.
