When I was 11, I was on the swim team at Fort Hayes, a US Army base in Columbus, Ohio. All was well until the season started. Then the league, composed of private all-white swim clubs, said our team couldn't compete as long as I was on it.

You know why I hate some of the people in this industry? They would drag a woman’s name on social media for a story and use all manner of verbiage to justify it BUT did they keep up the pressure on this president. Social Media is NOT the space to discuss sexual assault.

I think you’all missed a whole other episode. This did not start here. It started when a man went after two women talking about their feelings on Facebook. Their words were considered trite and explained away as a blanket. If you really want to start at the beginning start there.

Well to each his own. The same way you can deduce your own perspective from my words I think I am allowed the same courtesy of deducting my own assumptions from his words.

The story was already written so I did not comprehend his motive. When you plug something is it violent. Not shove, because a black man can get killed for that act, I said plug like stopping a leaky faucet, a sewage pipe, a leaky toilet.

I am not embarrassed and ashamed of my words so you are expending negative emotions. I posted on Maggie’s FB that I wish I could plug his mouth which I meant to covey shut his garbage and by garbage it was him calling women’s names in his quest for unveiling a story? Read CJR

My new philosophy is SPEAK LIFE. My actions should be about growth and nurturing not pointing my finger. And boy I don’t have enough for them four centuries BUT I am willing to be a part of any conversation that is looking for a way to help not forget and silence but help.

I do not speak for all the members in Vii but I guarantee that no one is hiding. You do not have a manual and neither does anyone else. We are swimming through uncharted waters. I believe that the members on the board are doing their best. Who are we to say differently?

No what kept those story quiet is because WE men kept silent. And it occurred at a time when women were no being heard, they were fired or hidden. Times are changing. WE, you and I have to act as anthropologists, carefully mining and nurturing the bones of this story.

Really. So we can’t do this without Twitter or Facebook. What if a family member of yours was raped or sexually harassed, is this the place you would like to see the story unfold??? Cmon. Maybe I am just Jamaican and old fashion. But you went from Twitter to zero. Really?

That is not what I am saying. I am saying that families have had alleged abused that go one for years without anyone accusing the Mom or any of the other members of the family of being complicit. I don’t know the specifics and if you do you should tell it in a better platform.

It means stop talking. Put a sock in it. Simple - nothing violent about it. We from all different parts of the earth expect that we should all talk the same on SOCIAL MEDIA??? And so I guess because we all use this platform we will all think alike too.

Social media is not TIME magazine or The New York Times, institutions that have weathered accusations and are still tall in the industry. People trust them. Twitter is new. Facebook is new. They have a relationship with the words Fake News. They are not the place for this story.
