Starr Jones Goes On Twitter Rant Against 'Baskeball Wives'

Starr Jones have seen enough shenanigans, and she is calling for all women of color to put a stop to the negative images that are portrayed through the media. The former View anchor took to her Twitter account and went on a tirade in a series of tweets about her thoughts on VH1's show Basketball Wives.

"It may be 'comfortable' to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH," she tweeted. "About to put together a group of sisters to finally 'tell the truth' about the image of women of color in the media."

"And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn't have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS," she continued in a series of tweets. "You NEVER give up your right not to have your 'person' intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity. I'm asking all my high profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution.

Speaking of negative portrayals in the media, it would have meant a lot if Jones utilized correct grammar in her tweets. Just a thought.

Share your thoughts? Do you agree with Starr Jones? Does BBW perpetuate negative stereotypes for women of color?
