    I hope Jada gets some justice.

    • Exactly. Jada is standing up for human dignity. Also, she has a strong support system having her back. We as a community have to continue to fight back against any form of rape and abuse. The criminals involved in harming Jada should be punished and jailed.

      Jada puttting her fist up is great, because it shows the world that Jada will not back down. She is a fighter just like our ancestors were.

      @truthseeker: Well said as always.

    • Thanks Sister. You have shown your gems of wisdom too.

    Social media can be really aggravating, but seeing this reminds me of how social media can be used for good.

    Jada is smart. She is using the tools that humiliated her to fight back and tell her side of the story. I hope that she indeed gets justice, and I hope that her parents are willing to home school her (if necessary) to protect her.

    I LOVE how she’s standing up for herself. Go, Jada!!!

    I guess this is where the idiom “Fight fire with fire” can be applied to this narrative. The social media was used to harm and humiliate her and she is turning it around and using it to help her plight. I hope she is successful. And the dogs who did this are put away.

    She’s not letting these bastards make her a helpless victim she’s fighting back.
