Amanda Seales Has Questions for White Women Planning to Kneel During National Anthem: ‘Where the F— Y’all Been at?’

Amanda Seales is taking issue with the call for women to begin kneeling during the national anthem. The “Insecure” actress used her Instagram Story Sunday to slam the apparent movement, which was publicized by Bishop Talbert Swan over the weekend.

Swan tweeted in part, “White women kneeling during the anthem to protest ‘rape culture’ is highjacking a movement you took no risks for. You didn’t kneel in solidarity to protest the murder of Black people, don’t co opt & make it about your victimization. That’s white supremacy in the name of feminism.”

It’s not clear what prompted Swan to make this remark, but he made it apparent that it had nothing to do with actress Molly Ringwald calling on singers to kneel as they performed the anthem.

“I am calling on either Beyoncé, Ariana Grande or Christine Aguilera to sing the National Anthem on bended knee #JustDoIt,” Ringwald tweeted Friday, Oct. 5.

Additionally, a meme has been circulating online encouraging women to kneel the next time “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played.

It appears Seales has caught wind of all the chatter and she’s not a fan of what she’s heard.

“Hold up. White women are kneeling to protest rape culture?” Seales said before asking her pet cat Lando if he’s heard about the discussion. “No. Where the f— was y’all at when was kneeling about police brutality? Where the f— y’all was at when [Colin Kaepernick] was getting his ass handed to him, because he was kneeling about police brutality? In general, where the f— y’all been at?

“Where the f— y’all was at when other white women were voting for Trump?” she continued. “Don’t be out here kneeling for rape culture, because the fact of the matter is, you don’t even have true intersectionality when you talk about rape culture. A lot of these motherf—ers don’t. … Too many of them. Any of these women – Republicans – that voted [Brett] Kavanaugh in is another white woman on the f—  s—! It’s y’all!”

The last sentence pertains to female senators like Sen. Susan Collins, who decided to vote to confirm Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice over the weekend.

Several of Seales followers wholeheartedly agreed.
