You’re all going to argue about this because all you want to do is bicker on the internet, blame women for things, and listen to morons on podcasts dictate, validate, and reinforce your “values,” but we hope that this woman will find peace.

Earlier this month, a woman named Roda Osman, aka Ro Bashe, set the Internet ablaze with Al Gore when she posted a video of herself critically injured after apparently being hit in the head with a brick for not giving his phone number to a man. In the clip, Bashe berates the group of black men who she says stood around and watched her get attacked. The video was reposted by The shadow room and all hell broke loose in the comments section and beyond.

While many women and men came to her defense, a particular segment of people scoured the internet looking for reasons to blame her for the alleged attack. Several dirt diggers found previous videos that Bashe had posted that questioned his character and were inflammatory in criticizing black men. After all the thinking, all the rhetoric, all the finger-pointing, arguments, put-downs and misogyny-tinged comments, Bashe sat down to give NBC News the first interview since her viral misfortune became fodder for stupidity.

She says she suffered nightmares and panic attacks because of all the harsh conjecture.

“First they ask, ‘Where is the police report?’ You don’t have a police report. I show the police report. Then they’re like, ‘Oh, it’s a fake police report,'” she said. “Then they say, ‘Show us the hospital records.’ You have no hospital records. I show them the hospital records. “These are fake hospital records. »

“The goals will never be achieved,” she said.

NBC News reports that they viewed both the police report and hospital records which reveal Bashe had blood coming from his ear and a badly bruised face. Haters will say it’s photoshopped.

“I don’t know how I’m going to support myself. I don’t know how I’m going to graduate on time. I don’t know how I’m going to, you know, feel safe again. she says.

“It will take me months, maybe a year, maybe longer in my life to get back on my feet.”

She also told the outlet that police had identified a suspect in the attack and the investigation was ongoing.

Despite this, she receives death threats and heinous threats aimed at her primary school-age son.

“People are calling my son’s school to say they are going to come and rape my son,” she told BNC. “Someone sent me some soup and said, ‘Choke and die on it, bitch.'”


Unfortunately, it is not surprising that many men and women are showing unbridled zeal to “denounce” this woman. We hope she recovers from everything she suffered.
