|Shirley from Community: What your average Black woman in America looks like|
The CBS affiliate in St. Louis reports:
It’s the latest video seen around the world, capturing a huge fight at a St. Louis Community College campus.
The incident, which happened Monday, begins with a woman getting into an argument with another woman while holding her young daughter. One of the women begins to attack the woman as she holds the child.
Eventually, she backs away and puts the child down and the two really start to go after each other.
More fights erupt. At one point, a pile of people rolled around in the bushes while throwing punches at each other.
The first woman even shrieks, “Where’s my baby?!?”
First faculty members, then campus police step in and try and calm things down. A circle of stunned students stood and watched.
Of those involved, three were arrested and charged with assault. Five were expelled from the college.Where's my baby indeed.
The better question should be this: What were these Black women even doing at the community college in the first place? They certainly are nothing like the lovable, hard-working, responsible, dedicated Shirley, the token Black character in NBC's incredible Stuff White People Like (SWPL) show Community -- which is about a rag-tag group of students at... a... community college.
Somewhere, in a military bunker with high-ranking members of the People's Liberation Army and Communist Party officials, the Chinese are laughing at us.
