Sheboons are reluctant to report muhdikking. "Sheeit, if I calls da po po on Tyrone he gonna bring back da AIDS from Nigger U!":
"The sisters don't want to report the brothers because we know what's going on in penal institutions," says Terry L. Stevens, who works with the Family Service League in Waterloo, Iowa.
Apparently No Means Yes in the black community. Sheboon: "Oh Lawdy Lawdy please don't muhdikks me Tyrone, I gots a headache!". Buck: "Dayum! This bitch be's hot fo' MUHDIKK!":
Remember when then heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant, Desiree Washington? The nation's largest black religious denomination supported him with a rally and petition drive to keep him out of jail... Louis Farrakhan, had plenty to say:
"You bring a hawk into the chicken yard and wonder why the chicken got eaten up. You bring Mike to a beauty contest and all these fine foxes just parading in front of Mike. Mike's eyes begin to dance like a hungry man looking at a Wendy's beef burger or something. She said, 'No, Mike, no.' I mean how many times, sisters, have you said 'No' and you mean 'Yes'?"
Sheboon: "Granny Granny! Quick, call the POlice! Ah done been muhdikked!" Granny: "Shaqueefah is you crazy? Do you really wan professah Uppi T. Niggrah ta lose he JOB?!?":
Simmons' documentary-in-progress, "NO!," is premised on African American women breaking silences. In the film, many women -- including her mother -- reveal how they were discouraged from reporting a rape or an attempted sexual assault because the attacker was the highest-ranking black faculty member at the university, or a hero in the civil rights movement, or a black student on a campus where police officers were harassing black men.
