What Does Genarlow Wilson Want with the Children of Atlanta and Who is Giving Him Access

Genarlow Wilson, convicted chipd rapist, has been convinced that he is the second coming of MLK and Mandela. His supporters fall into two categories: those that don't know and those that don't care.

Why else can you is explain why so many people so eager to give a man who was involved in the gang rape of an unconscious teenage girl access to young children?

I suspect that Wilson and his supporters want access to young children is because these children are too young to challenge the fairytale he weaves. For the complete set of facts surrounding Genarlow Wilson's criminal behavior, read this WAOD Classic Post: Your Genarlow Wilson Refresher Course: You're Not Entitled to Your Own Facts

As you can see he's a bit scruffy here, but they've since cleaned him up and bought him a new suit so he can be a spokesperson fora City of Atlanta's economic development agency.

MMMHMMM. Only in Atlanta will a city agency recruit off of the sex offender registry. I guess that's their idea of workplace development. You can watch the video where he says he wants to speak to "the youths" The person responsible for this is Michael T. Sterling of the Atlanta Workforce Development Agency. 

Genarlow Wilson is obsessed with influencing "the Youths" and the City of Atlanta and its schools  and nonprofits seem hellbent on giving him access to captive audiences of the children of Atlanta. 

 What lessons can "the Youths" learn from Genarlow Wilson? 

Lesson 1: Don't Take Any Responsibility for You Actions, Blame "Circumstances" 

Genarlow Wilson's jailhouse letters.

When you hurt and abuse other people, don't take responsibility for your actions, blame the people you were hanging out with. Blame the circumstances and claim that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. And by wrong place at the wrong time, I mean hanging out FOR HOURS in a hotel room boozing, drugging, and treating two girls ( one underage) as party favors. 

Lesson No. 2: Don't apologize to your victims and girls are property.

Save your apologies for their boyfriends - saying that if you'd known that she was "their" girl, you wouldn't have commited sex acts on her semi-conscious body. 

Lesson No 3.:Tell Half truths and Omit Essential Facts That Make You Look Bad

Mr. Wilson's team effectively erased the 17 year old girl invovled in the case from existence. They erased her - mainly because Mr. Wilson's actions towards her make him unworthy of being anyone's ( other than a serial rapist) role model. 

Lesson 4: Teach Children that Consent Doesn't Matter

Teach them that you can do whatever you want to other people despite their being handicapped by age, incapacity, disability, being drugged or coercion. Whatever you can get away with goes!

Lesson 5: Teach Children that Acquaintance Rape is Rare and Only Happens in the Presence of a Weapon.

Teach young kids that the only "real rapists" hide in dark bushes and carry out their crimes under knifepoint. Leave them with the impression that unless a gun or a knife is involved, a "real rape" did not occur. 

Atlanta is a "special" city. They do "special" things there.  But even in Atlanta, somebody somewhere has got to have a problem with school chidren being coralled into a room to listen to a convicted child rapist pat himself on the back for not taking responsibility for his bad acts- ALL OF THEM.



The Grand Hypocrisy of Ebony Magazine's "Cosby" Cover - Kierna Mayo STILL doesn't care about Black Women

I love people who are bold. And there can be noone bolder than Kierna Mayo and her side kicks over at Ebony Magazine. I couldn't escape the coverage of the latest Ebony magazine cover featuring a shattered photo of the cast of the Cosby show. And if anyone other than Kierna Mayo and her pro-rapist sidekicks had put together this cover, I wouldn't be giving it the side eye. This blog audience is already familiar with Miss Mayo's work and we all know that this woman and her side kicks coddle rapists --- when it is the popular thing to do. 



Ebony Magazine has ZERO moral authority to purport to be airing the Black community's dirty laundry. Back when it was popular for institutions of the Black community to coddle sexual predators, Kierna Mayo, the current Editor and Chief of Ebony magazine was in charge of

If you will recall, Mayo and her online crew were the ones who published and article fawning over convicted child rapist Genarlow Wilson. They lied and said that he wasn't convicted of a crime when he was. When WAOD readers pointed out their error, Kierna Mayo and her subordinates said we were ignorant and didn't know what we were talking about--- despite the fact that we'd been writing about Wilson's case for SEVEN years at that point.

Kierna Mayo is unconcerned with predatory Black men. She is concerned with righting the sinking ship that is Ebony magazine. The only reason they ran this cover was because they probably couldn't afford a photo shoot for this month's issue. 

I am impressed by the Holy Boldness and the revisionist history of Mayo and her crew. Just two year's ago, they were pro-rapist and now they are trying to cast themselves as genuinely concerned about the impact of sexual violence in the Black community.

Don't be fooled.

You can call me a broken record, a broken clock, call me whatever -But Kierna Mayo used up all of her moral authority propping up Genarlow Wilson - She doesn't have any. 

There is nothing "courageous" about jumping on the anti-Cosby bandwagon to sell a couple of magazines. Courage is what WAOD readers have done for almost a decade - challenge the coddlers and defenders of rapists in the Black community while being mocked, criticized and browbeaten online. 

For those who forgot what Kierna Mayo did a few year's ago, here's your refresher.…/ebony-magazine-edito…

I'm still recovering, but I couldn't resist posting seeing this hypocrite parade around on CNN.

More recently, Kierna Mayo was on MSNBC whitewashing and dismissing the misogyny of NWA and promoting Straight Outta Compton. - Denise
