#StopBlackGirls2013 demeans, degrades and devalues black women

It was open season on black women on Twitter Sunday night. The tweets in the ugly trending topic compared black women's bodies w/ animals, furniture & food. Black women's existence was a joke. The topic trended for hours & reached the #2 trending topic spot. Post-racial Amercia? Um, OK.
