All day yesterday I received angry emails from my loyal readers wanting me to put a certain site on blast for reportedly disrespecting one of our most respected and loved poets - Maya Angelou. Allegedly, this site referred to Ms. Angelou in a post titled "H* sit down."

First of all, I warned you guys about that site last year. At the time I told you that, unlike FUBU, that site is not by us or for us.

Yet you continually supported that site even when it referred to us as b*tches and h*s. Apparently it was ok for them to continually degrade our sistas and ridicule our culture, so why is it a problem now? Hmmm?

Personally I don't visit sites that degrade black women. When they call one of us a b*tch or a h*, they are referring to all of us. Respect yourself first if you want others to respect you.

  • kat

    what site is this?

  • Caron02

    It was Bossip and I'd have to agree that calling her a ho was out of line, however, at times Sandra isn't any better.

  • Caron02

    B O S S I P was the site...Sandra is funny! Love her though!

  • jcroft

    I read the comment on Bossip.

    Sandra, are you saying that Bossip isn't "black owned"? or that its ran by individuals that are not of African descent? when you said "its ok for them to degrade our sisters..." that made me think the above...(key word: them)

    Please fill me in, I'd like to know.

    PS. I disagreed with Mya Angelou.

    Thanks,
    JCroft

    Sandra,

    I like your site but sometimes you come across as a hypocrite. You may not call Beyonce or Alicia Keys a 'h' or 'b' but you do degrade them in you condescending ways.

  • http://www.myspace.com/birdshu Bird

    That site did what Don Imus did. Political incorrectness is in right now. People like the negativity. Despite the fact that most of the comments were blasting the site, the fact remains that the site probably got thousands of hits for referring to Ms. Angelou as a ho and that particular blog topic got hundreds and hundreds of comments. Ultimately that is what the site wants. Hits mean advertising dollars. I finally figured the best thing for me to do was not to return to the site while that blog was posted. I can't promise never to return because that is one of very few black blogs that are competing with TMZ and Perez Hilton with regard to the number of updates they do throughout the day. Love B Scott is trying to hang, but he doesn't have a lot of juicy gossip.

  • J Gats Juice

    When I read the "Ho Sit Down" bit, I wasnt even upset or surprised. I kind of expected stupidity like that on B O S S I P . But, for people to email complaints Sandra like she's the blog savior or blog police or something... Thats ridiculous. She is just as disrespectful, if not more. But I guess its permissible when she does it since she's a "sistah" who is just stating her opinion. Whatever.....

  • niastar

    I read Bossip daily just like I read this blog daily. Each one talks bullsh** and get out of line, but I will continue to read them because its my daily entertainment. I was upset about them referring to Maya Angelou as a hoe. That was very disrespectful. She has the right to endorse anyone she wants to just like every other American in this country. I believe Bossip is black owned though. Either way, with the way that Sandra disrespects our black people almost on a daily basis, I am surprised that anyone would email her asking her to put another blog on blast for doing the same.....PLEASE!!!!

  • ElleCook

    I have to agree with SR on this one. That site frequently calls women degrading names. No matter if you agree or disagree with someone's dress, political choice or comments... I dont think you should take pride in calling someone a HO. What I didnt understand is how the posters were upset about them calling Maya a ho, but they dont get upset when any other woman is called the same... almost like they deserve it but Maya gets a pass? That will be the last time I visit the site.

  • http://www.myspace.com/millyly milly

    Its all for entertainment purposes, but I've never even heard of Bossip until today.

  • kviser

    GET ALL THE FACTS! At the end of the post in question, low and behold there is a note....”Ho Sit Down” is a reoccurring theme on Bossip. Of course, we are not calling Maya Angelou a ho.

  • Mz_Magnificent1

    I did NOT know that site wasn't Black-Owned...yesterday when I saw that crap I almost lost it! You won't be seeing me on that piece of garbage site again...

    Sandra I agree with you 125% we must respect ourselves 1st...you must demand it to get it sometimes. Its nothing entertaining about one of the most positive, intellectual, Black women ever to get degraded. We all as Black people deserve better than that...

  • fatblkboy

    you know, i've been hearing rumors for a long while now that "that site" isn't owned or run by blacks. people even say it in the comments section over there. i stopped reading it awhile back because although there are several blogs that are disrespectful to celebrities, they are especially brutal towards black women in a way that it's not funny at all. so, im not surprised by this...

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    even though the title said hoe sit down, it was explained at the end why is was titled that. in america where is the freedom of speech at? everytime somebody say something they have to be politically correct? please i dnt care who a perosn is old or young its all about respecting urself 1st and then others. I dnt know maya angelou and that dnt mean i dnt respect her but come on now, its fasr more issues in this world that need to be addressed that a word. when those issues come into pay then please get back to me.

    Isues such as,AIDS, teenage pregnancy, poverty, high school drop out, gang violence, shady politicians(corrupt) out of wedlock children,unemployment and numerous other issues that plague the urban communities.

    i still cant believe a word has gotten numerous ppl in a uproar once again, SMDH.

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    another thing, ppl love controversy, so BOSSIP is here to stay just like other sites that report the so called news, everybody in this world has a choice as to whether read the site or not read. so to the ppl who are angry, do someting about it and stop BITCHING AND COMPLAINING.

  • LovelyLady

    THE EMAIL ADDRESS FOR THE OWNER OF THE SITE (WHO IS BLACK) IS HERE: jmartin@moguldom.com

    ME PERSONALLY I LIKE THAT SITE, IT GETS MILLIONS OF VIEWERS A DAY. ITS JUST A BLOG A GOSSIP SITE. I DON'T THINK THEY WERE TRYING TO CALL HER A HOE. NOW COME ON MOST OF YOU TALK LIKE THAT ON A REGULAR BASIS. HOE THIS, OR BITCH U CRAZY THAT AND SO FOR TO FRIENDS OR BEING ANGRY WITH SOMETHING. IF U DON'T LIKE WHAT THE BLOG IS SAYING WHICH IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES THEN WHY ARE U ON IT DAILY HELPING MAKE IT ONE OF THE BIGGEST BLACK OWNED SITES. AND YES IT IS BLACK OWNED. IF U DON'T LIKE WHAT THEY ARE SAYING DO NOT TYPE IN B-O-S-S-I-P. PROBLEM SOLVED.

  • ElleCook

    mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com I agree there is a freedom of speech... but let me see you say "Ho sit down" to some random lady and see if she'll let you get by with that.

  • LovelyLady

    @mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    I TOTALLY AGREE

  • MZN

    I too heard that "the site" isn't ran or owned by blacks. Honestly and personally, the comment didn't affect me at all. In fact, I thought it was funny. See, I never liked Maya Angelou anyway. It's just something about her that just rubs me the wrong way...
    I don't know if it is the long winded stories(sounds like fairytales)that she gives- I don't know if it's because she is married to WM but talk a lot of black progression. I just can't stand her. I'm sorry but I was LMAO all day. And still LMAO right now as we speak.

  • http://www.smokiesays.blogspot.com/ Smokie

    Are you folks REALLY not going to visit B o s s i p anymore? Or does that just sound like the right thing to say? I don't know who owns the site, but are the writers not black, also? Whatever the case, they aren't saying anything worse than what we hear/say on a daily basis. Also, why is it such a sin to put Maya Angelou in the "h o sit down" category but it's ok for countless other black females in the entertainment industry to be labeled h o e s? The ironic part in all of this is that Ms. Angelou was ACTUALLY a prostitute and madam in her past. I mean, if you want to get technical.

    I said all of that to say, I don't believe everyone will stop reading B o s s i p after this.

  • H.B.I.C.

    This is ridiculous!!! Who cares?! All of these gossip blogs rag on other black celebrites so nobody should be pointing a finger and saying shit. I read B O S S I P everyday for entertainment purposes, and I will say that I laughed at the "Hoe Sit Down" caption. It is not that serious. The only blogs that don't really talk shit about people are concreteloop and love b scott.

  • eholmes2000

    Hey. I actually e-mailed Sandra about the post and I was happy that she mentioned it on her site. I wasn't aware that Bossip regularly dissed such influential people and I only visited the site for my daily dose of celebetard gossip. I can assure you that after an antic like yesterday's, I will NOT be visiting again. I personally believed they crossed the line. But that's MY opinion. I will say that from what I've seen on sandrarose, she does spread the negative gossip but I've also seen her be very supportive. I think she's fair and balanced in her opinions and that is something I can appreciate and respect. It's when u post for popularity's sake that I question the motives on a site...

  • H.B.I.C.

    ^^^ I see that C O N C R E T E L O O P was blocked out of my post and I don't understand why but whatever

  • me888

    I think putting Maya Angleou under that heading was definitely risky, but they did put that disclaimer in there.

    I read this that site daily and I know that the category is something they use all the time for black, white, male, female, child... everyone

  • MZN

    The people over at "THAT SITE" know exactly what they are doing. They put something like Maya Angelou, being a h**, they know that they will receive a lot of hits, which brings in advertising money. they have over 1,000 hits in less than 24hrs! I gaurantee, the same ones that complain about the whole, Maya Angelou being a ho, are the same ones that will be back for more. Black people love controversy and love to get mad at someone. They want to go back because it's like a drug, or morning coffee. And because Sandra, posted "THAT SITE's" name, people here will start going there as well. Sandra is helping advertise that site.
    Oh well. Like I said, it didn't affect me. I thought it was funny.
    Some were trying to convince others to write to T-Mobile or Verizon, because they advertise with "THAT SITE." Get real.

  • http://www.beautyinbaltimore.blogspot.com BEAUTYINBALTIMORE

    I curious as to what site said this. I wonder what Oprah had to say about this cause you Miss Angelou and Oprah are tight. If Maya disappers well, I guess we will have an idea who did it.

  • http://www.straightfromthea.com ATLien

    There's a double standard here! The only reason everyone is outraged is because Maya Angelou is an "elder"...otherwise it wouldn't have been a problem.

    Sandra, you say things about people all the time! I don't understand why YOU (especially) would have a problem with ANY site.

  • me888

    BTW, I know for a fact that the site you're referring to IS BLACK OWNED.

    Don't believe the rumors. People are mad because they have successfully branched out into other (non-black) markets. They are savvy black business owners and a lot of people find it hard to equate success with being black.

    What a shame

  • http://www.myspace.com/birdshu Bird

    My problem is this. B o s s i p claims to be an Obama supporter yet they seem to be doing things to tarnish his image. They didn't run one report about the Kennedy's endorsing Barack despite how powerful and passionate their words were. And has Oprah gotten love from them since her endorsement? NO. Instead what they do is attack any black person who supports Hillary. If I recall correctly Bob Johnson also had the "H o Sit Down" title for his completely out of pocket statements about Barack's prior youthful drug use. I agreed with them on that one. The problem with this one was Maya didn't say anything negative or sensational about Barack. Like Magic Johnson she was attacked for simply supporting Hillary. They are out of line for that and it makes Barack look bad which is why I wonder if they really do support him.

    This is yet another issue that makes me look in the mirror. I was not mad at Imus and I clowned those girls when they got their hair did for the press conference, but I had to ask myself if I was wrong. I'm not going to hold white people to a higher standard than I hold blacks. If we call women h o e s for the world to hear then everyone can call them h o e s. We have to do better as people. America is going to hell in a hand basket as evidenced by the fact that we all call people h o e s for the sole purpose of being offensive because we think being offensive is funny. Cooning is the new in thing and black folks are not the only ones doing it. It has gone mainstream.

  • kenyanhottie

    Bird, what does cooning mean?

  • knowwhoiam

    First of all, I guess nobody bothered to read the disclaimer on the site:

    *Note-”Ho Sit Down” is a reoccurring theme on Bossip. Of course, we are not calling Maya Angelou a ho.

    I think this issue is being blown way out of proportion.

    And I agree with the commentor about it being a double standard. If it were a younger black actor/singer the caption would not be getting this much attention.

    And Sandra, they did do a piece on Kennedy supporting Barrack.

  • http://www.myspace.com/aaronmichaelofatm AaronMichael

    Personally I never heard about that site nor am I anymore interested in visiting there because of some sort of ridiculous controversy. I don't see why people are expecting Sandra to be the way the truth and the light that needs to be shined on this site. I'm sure you could find many other ways to get your point accross other than using one blog to blast another.

  • oneda

    Sandra disrespects men, women, and even children on a regular, so it is monumental hypocrisy to complain about another site doing the same. When people complain about Sandra her supporters always defend her right to say whatever she wants because after all it is her blog. So I assume you grant the other site the same right. Frequently Sandra has even been praised for her skill in outraging people because it increases traffic to her site. So I assume the other site will be similarly praised by those same people. Sandra talks about sites that disrespect or degrade black women. But when Gabrielle Union called out her and other black blogs for disrespecting black women, Sandra basically laughed at her. In the recent discussion of the Detroit mayor, Sandra basically said that all black men are liars and cheats. Does that qualify as "disrespect"? But it's all okay for Sandra because: it's her blog and she can say what she wants; because she has freedom of speech; because it's all just entertainment; because if you don't like it you're free to leave; because Sandra is really just doing it to increase site traffic and she should be recognized for her brilliance in knowing that outraging people will do that. Fine. I have no problem with any of those defenses of Sandra. I would only point out that then you have to grant the same rationales to every other site that does the same. Agreed?

    Bird, what does cooning mean?

    I knew what I thought it was, but I wanted to look it up to make sure I didn't tell you just what I thought. I found this definition in an album review on Amazon. I agree with it completely.

    My definition of "cooning" is degrading or embarrassing yourself for the sole purpose of appealing to a particular group. You could look at anything blacks do today as "cooning": especially blacks who are falsely acting like thugs or tramps to appeal to the buying public which is predominately white.

    **********************************************************

    In the old days cooning referred only to blacks who clowned themselves in order to entertain whites, but as I said, it has gone mainstream. Flav and every woman on his shows are cooning. Souljah Boy is the king of cooning right now. That sort of thing.

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    @ ElleCook,
    of course im not going to say it to a random stranger, but i'll say it to one of my friends whom i joke around with. Just listen to some of the musci thats being played and majority of the music degrades women. but who go and support the crap, WOMEN do thats who. so until some women stop supporting all things that degrade women instead of picking this and that, i dnt want to hear some ppl BITCHING AND COMPLAINING once again.

  • Mz_Magnificent1

    Its not just that B O S S I P isn't a Black-owned site...however, that was just disrespectful all across the board regardless of it just being "entertainment" or not. However, the people who run the site try to give the impression they are indeed Black.

    B O S S I P makes race an issue on a regular basis...talking about Kim K being a white h0e and loving Black Men...polking fun at Taye Diggs for being a self-hating Black man...and jumping on any Black celebrity who doesn't support Obama.

    So since they don't directly let people know they are a White-owned blog that makes it okay? If P E R E Z Hilton or T M Z said half the stuff B O S S I P says pertaing to Black people some of you guys would be screaming injustice. Don't get me wrong I like blogs that are ran by White people, however, I do have a problem with a blog that tries to give the impression they are ran by Blacks and them poking fun at Blacks like that on a regular basis.

    Just sit back and think about it...some White dude is on the computer calling us h0es, bytches, coons, and whatever else they think "we" would find entertaining. That doesn't bother you...just a lil bit?

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    y do some ppl look at blogs as a mean of finding out information?
    ok some of the kennedys backed obama, blogs dnt have to reprot on everything. its up to their discretion. and oprah is backing obama and maya is backing hillary. they're not goingt o agree on everything. and do yall really think maya cares what a damn blog says about heR? NOPE she dnt but some of yall do, lol

  • Ms. Research

    C'mon folks... lets do our research before we complain...

    The site is bossip.com but they did not call her a ho... if you took the time to actually read what they were saying you would realize that ”Ho Sit Down” is a reoccurring theme... they even posted at the end of the article the following

    *Note-”Ho Sit Down” is a reoccurring theme on Bossip. Of course, we are not calling Maya Angelou a ho.

    Now whether their choice of words is right or not is in your jurisdiction but all of these sites are for people who want to know the latest gossip and what they write are written from the writer's perspective.

    The gave her the ”Ho Sit Down” theme because they disagree with her supporting Hillary over Barack...

    That's all for now... Thank You

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    @ Mz_Magnificent1
    what bothers me is some ppl B I T C H I N G AND COMPLAINING about issues and dnt do nothing about. and a question for all the ppl that is offened about the statement.
    what was the last rap cd or music that u purchased?

    lets see how many ppl tell the truth, lol
    i knw not alot, umm

  • Mz_Magnificent1

    @ Mzphateegirl...true, I see what you are saying. You know everyone gonna say something like Jill Scott or something like that lol.

    I mean its just not about consumer purchases...what have you done for your community as well. Like people bytch and moan about politicians or the laws being passed in their counties BUT how many of those same people vote for local leaders. Voting does not just begin and end with the White House people...

    I live in the Washington,DC area and you would think since we are in the Nation's Capitol and have access to all issues right here people would take the opportunity to at least know wth is going on in their own communities. The House of Representatives and Senate's voting sessions are ALWAYS open to the public...also you have access to listen to their discussions about what they plan to do in your community. How many folks take advantage of those opportunities? Very few.

    We don't need Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or Oprah to stand-up for Black people...you have voice as well and if you aren't a felon you have the right to vote.

    Alright I'm stepping off of my soapbox now lol...I know some of you guys don't agree with my thoughts but its just my lil opinion.

    ALL I HAVE TO SAY HOW CAN YOU AND BOSSIP THROW STONES AND LIVE IN A GLASS HOUSE...NOT LONG AGO YOU (SANDRA) CALLED ALL

  • mzzphateegirl@yahoo.com

    ive never purchased a jill scott cd, lol
    but ne way ive been voting since i turned 18 and i'll vote until i die. i know all of the local politicians in my county and the senate and so forth. i tell ppl all the time, if u dnt vote dnt complain about nothing. and ive been volunteering since i was 16 and contiue to do so. even if i help one child im satisfied with that because atleast im trying.

    im not gonna sit up here and lie, in the past ive purchased rap music but after i kept on hearing things i didnt agree with in the music i stopped purchasing thier music. the last rap cd i purchased was DMX (his 3rd cd) yes that long ago, lol
    my issue with some ppl is they talk a semi good game but when its time to put up, where r they at? nowhere to be found.
    and ppl are still posting on BOSSSIPP, nothing has changed,

    But, for people to email complaints Sandra like she’s the blog savior or blog police or something…

    Mere words could not express the expression on my face after reading this.lol. I don't understand emailing Sandra either? I guess it was so she could create an entry like this where people could vent their frustrations with b o s s i p without giving their site hits? After all if you comment on the site you're helping the site. Regardless of what you say in your comment. I have no clue whether that site is run by white folks, however I have to admit you hear that rumor about every black blog. It surfaces whenever their is controversy surrounding the blog. I'm sure there are those who assumed Sandra was white with all the Black woman bashing she does.lol. They probably thought she was some White woman dating a Black man, who was insecure about, and intimidated by beautiful and/or strong Black women. Boy would they have been wrong! Well at least partially wrong.lololol

    Do I even sound like I get all my information from blogs? If so, I've definately got some self examination time planned. Let me stop being sarcastic. The only information I expect to get from blogs is entertainment gossip. I don't even expect that to be true most of the time. I'm a news junky so I spend just as much time on news sites around the country as I do on blogs. My point was that Bossip is covering Barack, but only as it pertains to blacks who are supporting Hillary. Why are they doing that? If they are doing that why not mention people who are supporting Barack? Why not give a little shine to Miss O who many in the hip hop community disrespect? Or how about not covering the election at all? They are making a joke out of it.
