Finally Black women are finding their voice against abuse in the music industry | Michelle Kambasha | The Guardian


These stories show how poorly Black women have been treated, says Michelle Kambasha, who works in the music industry

============================================

Abuse of any nature is wrong and all abusers need to be stopped as otherwise they will continue abusing. Then in some instances the abused go on to abuse others themselves. So it essential that all is done to stop abuse and certainly all  those abusing.

It takes great strength for those who have been abused to speak out and when they are not listened to this only makes them feel more abused.

In America the whole system is geared to coverup abuse, especially where this done to members of the Black community and it appears even more so to black women.

But, is the UK any better, well we do feel so, but abuse is abuse and one incident of abuse is one too many.

So, the abuse concerns raised by some Black women regarding alleged incidents  by DJ Tim  Westwood should have been dealt with at the time, but as there is no time limit on bringing abuse claims in the UK, they can still be brought.

Lets hope now these women will be fully listened to and any appropriate actions taken.
