Pray the Devil Back to Hell...or Missouri

I just finished watching the critically acclaimed documentary, Pray the Devil Back to Hell and while it was far too short for my desires, it was SO amazingly uplifting and inspiring to me where this effort and so many other things in life are concerned. Just average, ordinary women decided that they'd had enough of the madness in Liberia as that tyrant Charles Taylor trampled around and they made a humongous difference.

I'm tired of watching women, especially those of us of color, being treated in the business world as though we are so dispensable. Kimora Lee Simmons has been handling this situation with Baby Phat/Phat Fashions and Kellwood Company with impeccable grace, but I don't have the restraints that I'm sure she's dealing with. So, Kellwood prepare for this effort to go to new levels in the coming weeks. The worse thing that could have happened for you idiots is for me to have watched that documentary tonight. Those women got it DONE! If they were able to, I, with the help of other women like myself, can do the same. You have nobody to blame for this but yourselves.

If only you'd handled this like professionals and at least made a statement. Sent Kimora off with the parting that she deserved. Not just toss her out....maybe this wouldn't be necessary. But, you decided to handle it the way you did. Like assholes. I'll return the favor in kind.

So, while we can't pray you back to the hell from whence you came, we can pray you back to Missouri to lick your "in the red" wounds. Head bowed... --Sugar
