Roland Martin talks about the lack of support from women’s organizations in light of the South Carolina teen who was slammed to the ground by a white police officer.
“Where are the black female organizations? Where are the Linx and Ladies of Distinction? Where are the sororities? Alpha Kappa Alpha yesterday released their statement condemning what took place, calling for a federal investigation…I need black women to raise up and stand up. Young girls out there need to see somebody have their back. We also need to make sure brothers stand up for their sisters. I’m simply saying, why do we somehow stay silent and say, well, you know, she was out of line. She could be out of line and he could be wrong at the very same time,” he said.
