OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Never ending cycle that needs to be broken. #MisdirectedAggression #Misogynoir

Black power is for black men. 

im glad someone said it

this is a strawman argument that NEEDS to be broken and dismantled. Absolute fallacy.  
This is the same tactic Gloria Steinem used when she created Black Feminism forty years ago. “Black men don’t care about Black women so why should you care about them period.”
Nah sahn we are not about to repeat this cycle. 

That’s not what she is trying to do. She is simply summing up her perception of things. I agree with her 50 percent but I also know that there are black men out there that still love us.

From her own text, she is making a generalized statement, charging Black men, in general, of at the very least neglect. 
You would not accept a generalized blanket charge against Black women 50%,40% or even 30%.  
It is equally unacceptable to let this fly as well. Because I will tell you what it is doing, it falls in line with feminist practices of making all women victims and thusly all men are the villains.  That is the conclusion of this line of thinking. Black people operating within this paradigm will continue down a road leading to Black annihilation for the most simple fact that Black men and women will not even trust each other.
This is before we even get to the point of how do you draw a correlation between protesting police brutality and murder of black men AND women to say that Black men don’t care about Black women.  It’s a statement without any logical framework, it’s an emotionally charged statement based on a strawman argument. 
Dead that shit yo. 

^ Thank you. I too have been noticing the proliferation of this same selfish self-pitying and divisive meme.
