Can the #MeToo movement free black men of the sexual predator stereotype?

From the time black men were first brought to America in chains, they were viewed as sexual predators whose primary desire was to violate white women.

Is it possible that the #MeToo movement will destroy that myth?

For months, women have been coming forward with their personal stories of sexual abuse, assault and unwanted advances, laying out a pattern of pervasive misconduct in the workplace, the entertainment industry and the political sphere.

Overwhelmingly, the alleged perpetrators have been powerful white men.

An alleged sexual predator, Republican civil war and Steve Bannon: what’s at stake in Alabama?

On Tuesday, Alabamans will go to the polls to decide which is the lesser evil, an accused child molester or a Democrat. In recent polls, the accused child molester is favored.

The surprise is that a Democrat even has a chance in a deep red state that Donald Trump won by a landslide in the 2016 presidential race. The concept that a Republican might be vulnerable is almost as unusual as the white-flecked fields of rural Alabama in December, where snow mixed with leftover cotton bolls to produce an Arctic landscape in the Bible Belt.

But Roy Moore is not a normal Republican and 2017 is not a normal year.

On 9 November, the Washington Post published a story that alleged Moore had sexually assaulted one teenage girl and romantically pursued three others when he was in his 30s. In the following days, another accuser

Most Alabama GOP leaders say they will vote for accused sexual predator Roy Moore

Most Republican leaders in Alabama say they plan to vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday despite sexual misconduct allegations against the former judge that have prompted others around the country to say he should never be allowed to join the U.S. Senate.

Sen. Richard Shelby is an exception — he said Sunday that the “tipping point” in his decision to cast a write-in ballot rather than vote for Moore or Democrat Doug Jones was an allegation that Moore molested a 14-year-old girl decades ago.

But Shelby’s outspokenness against a man who could become his colleague was the exception rather than the rule.

“I have stated both publicly and privately over the last month that unless these allegations were proven to be true I would continue to plan to vote for the Republican nominee, Judge Roy Moore,” Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill wrote in a text

Shameless to the end: Sexual predator Max Clifford died after collapsing in his jail cell. But, say his victims, the …

Max Clifford, who died after collapsing in his jail cell

A few days before the 2012 arrest that began his squalid fall from grace, Max Clifford was asked to address the Oxford Union.

Billed as one of the ‘people who shape our world’, he chose to sum himself up thus: ‘Every day, every week, every month, a lot of the lies that you see in the newspapers, in the magazines, on television, on the radio, are mine.’

It was a typically shameless boast from a publicist who never seemed even remotely embarrassed to have achieved fame and fortune by creating and then selling fake news stories, from Freddie Starr eating that hamster to David Mellor making love to Antonia de Sancha in a Chelsea strip.

Alabama’s choice: Vote for a Democrat or an accused sexual predator

When Alabama voters cast ballots to select a U.S. senator they will face a choice that echoes the country’s partisan political divide: elect a Democrat or pick a man accused of preying on teenaged girls.

The Republican candidate — backed by U.S. President Donald Trump — is Roy Moore, a former state judge known for his battles to publicly display the Ten Commandments. He has more recently made headlines over accusations that he pursued girls as young as 14 when he was in his 30s.

Voters on Tuesday can choose Moore or his Democratic opponent Doug Jones, a former federal prosecutor. Or they could shun both by writing the name of another candidate not listed on the ballot — a move that could split the Republican vote and help Jones.

Alabama has not elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1992, and a Jones win

One of the disturbing and hopeful signs amidst the many difficulties of our present world situation has been the continuing parade of revelations about the sexual predation of men in power. The assaults reported seem to have occurred in almost every sector of our society: from religion to entertainment, from sports to politics, and within the confines of the nuclear family itself. Wherever men have held power over others, some of them have used it to gratify their sexual desire.

My recently deceased father was a caring and somewhat charismatic minister turned therapist. Though it wasn’t public knowledge, he was also a sexual
