You might be what cultivated the girls who killed Amy Joyner

Last week we lost a future queen when some Delaware high school girls jumped and beat Amy Joyner to death. We later found out that it was all over a boy.

Fast forward a day or two. “Lemonade” drops. Lets be clear right from the start. This article isn’t about Beyonce or who Jay cheated on her with. Or whatever profound pseudo-philosophical hotepish analysis of the song many came up with. We could not give a single solitary f@%k about that.  Once the ashes and debris settled from the Lemonade shitstorm, the Beehives or Beyhives, whatever they’re called, decided to address some implications of cheating in the video. And what do they do that seems to be the standard for a lot of women upset about their man possibly cheating: ATTACK THE OTHER WOMAN.  For hours, the BeeBeyhives dddrrraaagggggeeeddddd the Rachels. First they dragged Rachel Ray by mistake. Then they found the real bandit, Rachel Roy, and began attacking her. Attacked these women as if they said something about their mama. It was the stupidest shit. What was disheartening were all the Black women we saw right up in the middle of this juvenile display of being a ride or die member of the BeeBeyHive Clan.  And what was even more pathetic than that, was when they began attacking Roy’s teenage daughter.

What we found interesting is that we didn’t see thousands and thousands from the BeeBeyHive Clan go to any of Jay Z’s social media pages to drag him for cheating on their white Jesus. Why? If they believed the rumors so much to go attack the Rachels, why didn’t they attack the man for cheating? How many scorned women have we seen attack the woman her man cheats with?  Remember that photo that went viral on Facebook of a woman standing on a corner of a busy intersection, holding a huge sign with the photo of the woman having an affair with her husband and it had some message like, “THIS IS JANE DOE. SHE SLEEPS WITH MARRIED MEN.” The wife made sure to put all of the other woman’s information on the sign but never mentioned her husband’s name.  How many stories have you heard of a chick spray painting a car with, “STAY AWAY FROM MY MAN!” How many beefs have we seen play out on Facebook between a woman and her crew confronting the “other woman.”

You love the cat fights on Bad Girls Club, RHOA, and Love & Hip Hop/Basketball.  You can’t wait to watch any of these Reunion shows because you know exactly what cast members will go to blows. YOU’RE HERE FOR ALL OF THAT!

We were shocked and saddened by the savage attack of Amy. We were all, “what a shame!” “What happened?” “Why would these girls beat this child to death?”  And not even 2 days later, thousands and thousands of women met Rachel in a virtual bathroom to beat her down for being a ‘homewrecker’. Women continually attack other women over their trifling man and then we want to know how some girls in a high school bathroom can beat a girl to death.  Take a very long look in the mirror.

    I get it but the most influential person to a girl is the mom,for a boy is the father. I wander how situations,anger,issues were resolved in the home.

    I watch reality television but it would be a bold faced lie if I didn't agree with this post. We live in a society where women attack other women over men. It's sad.

    Wow, harsh reality. Ladies wake up!!! We are misconstruing entertainment from reality. Not all reality is real, if it's on tv, on the internet, sold in a store , hello it's entertainment.

    I'm so sick and tired of social media & reality TV getting blamed for other people's behavior! Let's put the blame where it should be placed, on the individuals! Women have been arguing, fighting, shooting & stabbing one anther over men for centuries! This comes from poor judgements, weak minds & bad decisions! If you knew better you would do better!

    I dont watch any of that garbage. Nor do I listen to it. I refuse to be a part ofrefuse to be part of such negativity. I feel so bad this behavior is accepted as the norm. I hope we wake up soon because we are losing a whole generation if we dont make some changes soon.

    To a certain point I do feel that television play a part in the way we raise our daughters and sons video games Facebook all that but if you don't train and go and talk to your kids and let them know what's real and what's fake and how to conduct a self out in public then they are lost it's a lot of household of different cultures that don't even have a television in their home so they look at stuff different and they have a different way of going about handling situations and they're more focus on education when in a black household even the mother working two jobs or the father and the mother they both at work all the time so it's really no time to be there for your kids anymore cuz it's the cost of living is too high kids in the street because mom and dad is at work so they watching TV and playing video games they've been brainwashed because no one is there to tell them that this is reality and this is not the way you conduct yourself in the real world our black generation don't push ideas like different cultures like to let us know that make sure your credit right go to school get a degree stay focused don't be in the streets we're different nothing in the neighborhood to do snow activities so what is it so that I can sell this topic but it's only 24 hours in a day we gotta build our community I see so much negative stuff on Facebook in the streets in the news every day but I see a lot of people on Facebook and also talking real positive all these people that talk about how we all need to come together get together and do something about these children because the children are the future

    Our children are becoming what we are allowing them to become! We allow them to become educated by whatever devices we, as adults continue to shell out money for them to have, so that we can have the illusion of keeping them safely connected to us, and access to "Educational tools" on the Internet. They become wild animals raising each other, like in the book, "Lord of the Flies". When we allow Stupid web sites, used to make Stupid, Greedy, people who are Poor-Examples RICH. We avoid Our Greatest Responsibility, that of Guiding our Children!

    My mother told me when she was in high school a fight broke out over a boy in the bathroom. One girl knifed the other girl. This was long before Basketball Wives was even a mere thought in someone’s mind. Fighting over a boy has been happening from the beginning of time. My mother would always tell me and my friends don’t ever fight over a boy. Television and Social Media may have played a part, but there is something much bigger at play here. Where are these girls mentors or big sister saying you look a damn fool fighting over someone who doesn’t want you. While that young lady is dead these other three will most certainly be going to jail and the little boy? About the time these girls-to-women get out of jail, who knows where he’ll be, but rest assured he won’t be thinking about any of them.

    Unfortunately ever characteristic penned in this article is spot on when it comes to the way we shame each other as women, even to death.

    I think a lot of the readers are blaming just tv. This writer only briefly mentions TV. You are right, this has been happening for centuries… but we can't pretend our adult decisions don't influence a childs mind. It always has.. even centuries ago.

    I HAVE SAID TOO MANY TIMES, WHERE EVER YOUR MAN IS, THAT IS WHERE HE WANT TO BE, SO WHY ARE YOU FIGHTING OVER SOMEONE WHO TOTALLY DISRESPECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP. CUT TIES WITH THAT PERSON AND MOVE ON. DON'T GO LOOKING FOR HIM OR CALLING HIM, WHY? HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE IF HE WANT TO BE WITH "YOU", OR TALK TO "YOU". YOUR MAN IS THE ONE WHO SUPPOSE TO LOVE AND RESPECT YOU NOT ANOTHER WOMAN THAT KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT YOU AND NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN YOUR MAN IS PROBABLY LYING TO HER AS WELL. I HAVE TAUGHT MY DAUGHTER TO WORK AND TAKE CARE OF HERSELF, LEAN ON GOD'S EVERLASTING ARMS, RESPECT HERSELF AND KNOW THAT SHE IS WORTHY OF THE BEST AND ANYONE THAT MAKES HER FEEL LESS THAN SHE NEED TO DUMP IT. I HAVE ALWAYS TOLD HER THAT WHENEVER I WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP IT WAS BECAUSE I WANTED TO BE, NOT BECAUSE I NEEDED TO BE. I DON'T NEED NOTHING BUT THE LORD, EVERTHING ELSE I CAN LIVE WITHOUT!!!!

    We can sit here and comment on this article about how tv is to blame or when it started or how long women bashing women has been going on. We as women need own up to the fact at some point we as individuals or in group have bashed other women just because. Truth will set us free, I know I have done it and it's has been done to me. Now that I'm raising two girls, I'm Changing. I don't my girls growing up with that type of mentality. So I had to get rid of any type social influences of that nature. If we want it to change them we have Be the change.

    Maybe the real issue is… black women don't like each other and deep down they know the other woman is aware of the marriage and don't care. That could be why they go at each other. The woman wants what ever she desires… her cake and yours… and we expect harmony from that behavior? Is husband cheating really the issue or socalled control over ones body vs Nature? Cause we see this same thing with same sex or antisexuals also…so it's not just because of the males… it's the idea of how marriage should be… so who's view do we have? A white identified view? A Disney view? Or an Indigenous view?

    Its true how reality shows can influence our people but one should take responsibility for ones actions..u cant just blame it on tv.those young girls knew what they were doing they just dont give adame obout their life its all obout the man and they are pam pussy ass mouth bottom line

    Whatever…it simply comes down to being responsible for your children's actions. If parents had to do the time for kids crime there would be a lot less parents allowing their kids to do dumb shyt! It's nobody's else's responsibility to raise your child and in the "real world" they are gonna be exposed to shyt that your not gonna like but it's up to you give them the tools to make the right choices. Actually it's your job to make the choices for them for the nex 18yrs!
    Stop leaving it up to the village to raise your child! If you don't think you should be responsible for someone else's decisions than you probably shouldn't be a parent anyway!

    Thank you so much for saying what I was thinking. The PARENTS are responsible and accountable for teaching their children right from wrong.

    A couple of things:

    a) this article does not blame reality tv
    b) All of y'all are bugging if you think children are ONLY influenced by their parents. LOL!

    In what world has peer pressure, good parenting, bad parenting, media messages, the streets, the cool kids, the super cool 'bad boy', the thug, the pimp, the drug dealer, an inspiring poem, a hate speech, love music, hip hop, NOT influenced the masses? This article suggeting that our behavior as adults might influence the generation under us, aint far fetched.

    Very true. For some reason we always go after one and not the other. It takes two to tango. However with the Amy Joyner tragedy there is obviously an underlying and deeprooted issue of anger in these young ladies, and others like them this generation that has to be addressed. Girls fought over boys 15+ years ago but when I think of how broken they had to be(trying not to use the term 'messed up' to describe their emotional and mental well beng but it does fit), to beat her to DEATH and record it…it just breaks my heart.
