Russell Simmons Apologizes for Harriet Tubman Sex Tape


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!

Russell Simmons issued a swift apology through his GlobalGrind.com website after the NAACP called.
The social media response was fast and furious too, from Twitter to a Change.org petition.

Harriet Tubman tasteless sex tape parody

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!

Cheers,

Artikleblak is a panoramic color-consciousness of digital media connecting the African Diaspora throughout the world. This world is a massive environment and our images and stories and concerns are spread to sparingly throughout the planet and digital terra. People of color comprise 4/5th of the world's population. Yet we have to Google search and channel surf and scour the event calendars to find ourselves, whether it be a person, place or thing. We should nevermore let oceans, languages, religions, cultures or man-made boundaries partition us. Our humanity is to powerful to remain fragmented, lets make it ONE again.

  1. I read once that the noble poet RobertFrost said he wasn’t a teacher,
    but rather an awakener. I believe this blog is exactly the
    same since it awakens me, and makes my mind work.
