Wanda Sykes: A much needed tonic

11 Jun

Hero, Wanda Sykes

During this ugly storm created by Tracy Morgan and then fueled by Chris Rock, it is nice to see this tonic/salve by the most wonderful Wanda Sykes!  Here is Sykes taking on Rock, Morgan, and CNN’s Roland Martin:

I do believe in free speech, but for a youth in TN or any other numerous place, Tracy just yelled, ‘Fire,’ in a crowded theater,” adding, ”Morgan “is just a dumb comic,” but also said she faults Tennessee lawmakers. “They’ve created an anti-​gay environment,” and suggested she didn’t “believe Tracy would be so ignorant in LA, because we have a mayor, a city council,and police chief who believes we are all equal.

Sykes is brilliant and does a brilliant job of confronting homophobia.  She clearly understand how interconnected misogyny, racism, and, homophobia are. Sykes also then tweeted the following in response to Rock’s: “I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live in a world where Tracy Morgan can’t say foul inappropriate shit.”

Ok, piss’d reading, “I don’t want 2 live n a world where Tracy can’t say…” I Do! U Keep the world, just break me off an evolved country.

Than you, Wanda Sykes for having the courage to speak the TRUTH!  You are my hero!  Click here to read the full article.

Just for the record, Chris Rock offered a formal apology after reading the transcript of Morgan’s hate.
