"Me too" and White Patriarchy

Power can corrupt, but absolute power corrupts absolutely. The white male patriarchal society that is America is being revealed for what it is. The power that has been realized by wealthy white men in this country (and also men of other ethnicities who have assimilated into this social equality), has resulted in the abuse of that power since the days of yore.

This is trickle down economics, but this never works, because there is no equality there. Someone has to pay for it, and in the long run, its always the little guy footing the bill. - Hassan Shabazz
#TrickleDownToWho?

When I look at the current events surrounding Roy Moore who recently lost the election in Alabama, more attention has been paid to his bid for the senate than the fact that this is a judge who has been accused of child molestation. That is not to say that he is guilty, for one is innocent until such is proven, but my point is that our attention is misdirected. I mean, this is the type of individual that has been presiding over criminal prosecutions for some of the very same acts of which he has been accused. I wonder how many mo
