026. Like I said last month, @rkelly should've been cancelled twenty years ago. If you make the choice to still listen to him, you're cancelled too. (Shoutout to @verysmartbros for cancelling folks)

However, let's not act as if this conversation begins and ends with Robert Kelly. Over the past six weeks, a number of Black men i.e. Mystikal, Cosby, Kodak, & XXX Tentacion have been charged with sexual assault or some form of violence against women. And it ain't no conspiracy, no plot to buy CBS, no formula to tear down a Black man. It's misogynoir and toxic masculinity and patriarchy. That's it.
###
The reason why it's so hard for a lot of Black men to admit Kelly and Cosby are rapists and sexual predators is because it means your wife/sister/cousin/homegirl/ was telling the truth about your brother/cousin/homeboy/frat bro.
###
It also means you have to come to terms with your involvement and complicity in that situation as well. You have to admit you enabled, defended, and protected a domestic abuser/rapist.
###
You have to admit that your boy isn't as "good" of a man as you thought he was. You have to admit you aren't as "good" of a man as you thought you were.
###
At some point, we have to accept the fact this whole "good man" fixation isn't helping. Maybe, he was a "good man" but he did terrible things and needs to be held accountable. I do believe that should be the discussion between us as men: who is willing to be held/hold other men accountable and who is not?
