Russell Simmons Apologizes for ‘Harriet Tubman Sex Tape’.
A fictional parody sex tape of Harriet Tubman made it to Russell Simmon’s Youtube channel called All Def Digital.
artikleblak chose NOT to watch the racially and sexually charged, fowl, supposed to be funny, parody of one the matriarch’s of America’s call to freedom, Harriet Tubman or to add a link on artikle’s blog!
According to the TheRoot.com:
During the “reenactment,” Tubman seduces her master, telling him, “All these years I’ve been acting like I didn’t enjoy our special time together.” The pair then engages in a sex act that culminates with Harriet’s master confessing his love for her, while she brushes him off, saying, “Look n*gga, I don’t give a damn about who you love.”
*long heavy sigh*
I’m not even sure where to begin.
Downplaying the very real rapes and abuse Black women endured during slave[r]y? Check.
Clutch Magazine also reported: That in “ADD History: Harriet Tubman Sex Tape,” comedians joke about how Tubman used sex to blackmail “her master into letting her run the Underground Railroad!”
In the mind of artikleblak, Harriet Tubman is one of those iconic figures who’s life needs to be shown more in a positive light, since there is so little of her taught in schools today.
A fictional account like this could have a lasting negative impact on her sacrifices and contributions to American history. ESPECIALLY IF SEEN BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS LITTLE OR NOTHING ABOUT HARRIET TUBMAN, MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE YOUTH.
Somethings just aren’t funny.
artikle still luvs Uncle Rush!
