Ramaa Mosley: Hijacking the Hashtag #BringBackOurGirls

Ramaa MosleyRamaa Mosley tried to hijack the hashtag, #BringBackOurGirls and claim she started it and tie it to her organization “Girl Rising” to Fund Raise off of it. Please be aware.

Nothing disgusts me more than a thief trying to capitalize off of someone else’ pain & suffering.

@CNN took the word of Ramaa Mosley / as being creator of w/o fact checking! WTF kind of journalism is THAT?

didn’t retract the LIE about Ramaa Mosley/ being creator of but they scrubbed the video.

The REAL creator of is

obyezeks is the creator of bringbackourgirlsWall Street Journal: The signature hashtag, which allows Twitter users world-wide to find like-minded people, had its origins in Abuja. On April 23, Mr. Abdullahi was at home watching a televised broadcast of the opening celebration of Port Harcourt’s year as the United Nations’ world book capital.

One speaker, former World Bank Vice President Obiageli Ezekwesili, took to the stage and helped lead the crowd in a chant of “Bring back our daughters.”

Mr. Abdullahi had just a few hundred Twitter followers, but he is an enthusiastic tweeter. So, on April 23, he modified the slogan to “bring back our girls” and tweeted: “Yes #BringBackOurDaughters #BringBackOurGirls declared by @obyezeks and all people at Port Harcourt World Book Capital 2014.”

The REAL Facebook page for BringBackOurGirls is https://www.facebook.com/BringBackOurGirlsNG

Ramaa Mosley found a way to profit off the backs of suffering kidnapped girls in Nigeria with her film .  I can’t express my contempt for what she did. She used the opportunity to make money. So disgusting!

      So in the end, you base your analysis on a poorly written article in a newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch and on an American Media Industrial Complex that you surely know is intent on creating the very bait of divisiveness you have taken. In the end you copy and paste together selected text written in 140 characters that you must know will never carry the nuance, the whole story, the history and full intent of the sender. In the end, you spend even one minute taking down a woman, a group of women you do not even know and play into the taxonomy of race created by those you name the oppressors. You are playing the game they set out for you – you are creating the distraction they crave, and you commend yourself for it. And in the end, who wins? Congratulations, you brought the white woman down. Now what?

      • Ametia says:

        What do you base your analysis of our analysis on this “white woman” we supposedly brought down?

        As usual you fucking trolls try to come here and tell us we’re the ones with the problem. Ramaa Mosley aka Mary Strawberry is part of the problem is the OPPRESSOR. Trying to usurp the voices of the Nigerian people, by stealing the hashtag one woman created.

        And now trying to make it about this bitch who stole the hashtag.

        GTFOH with this brought down the white woman bullshit. Mosley needs to OWN HER SHIT. We’re not going quietly into that good night.

      • Now what? Ramaa Mosley/@MaryStrawberry won’t get to exploit over 200 innocent girls held captive by a mad man for personal gain. THAT’S WHAT! You’re mad? Cry me a river!

        3ChicsPolitico will not stand for the thieving of the Nigerian woman’s voice as she cry out in agony for her daughters. Not. Going. To. Happen.

      • rikyrah says:

        There would be no post if Ramaa Mosley hadn’t of LIED and tried to MAKE MONEY off the kidnapped girls. Nobody forced this lying piece of crap to try and pimp off these children, but she did.

        But, she lied, and took her ass on national television lying, and then has the nerve to try and posture when her ass gets caught lying.

        AND tries to make money off of it.

        Really?

        Truly?

        You think somebody’s playing with you or that lying piece of shyt?

        No. We are not.

  17. Ramaa Mosley Responds to Criticism Over Creation of #BringBackOurGirls Campaign

    *Los Angeles, CA— Filmmaker Ramaa Mosley responded to Maria Menounos’ ”Black Hollywood Live” to recent reports that raised questions about the legitimacy of her role in the viral marketing campaign #BringBackOurGirls, a social media movement in response to the mass abduction of girls in Nigeria. This came following tweets by Nigerian activist Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili accusing Mosley of using the campaign for profit.

    “This rally call first happened in Nigeria,” Mosley clarified. “Oby Ezekwesili was the first person to cry out ‘bring back our girls.’ She asked the people who were at the rallies to tweet this #bringbackourgirls. She created it. I saw the tweet and I tweeted right back. And you know I think that what we have done is begin to get the message out… I think that this has been a pretty amazing example of speaking out and I really hope that people understand that has been my intention and focus from the very beginning and will remain my focus no matter what happens. I will continue to speak out on behalf of these girls and on behalf of all girls because I believe that every child deserves to be educated.”

    Mosley opened up about the surge of criticism she’s received online, saying:

    “I try not to look at twitter and see what people are saying but there has been some upsetting things, that I’m trying to be the ‘White Savior.’ My husband found posts of memes of my head on top of Martin Luther King’s body at rallies and it’s really, just, cyber bullying….This is the first moment I’ve actually talked about it. But really the reason that I don’t speak out about it is that my focus is not on myself. My focus is on those girls.

    “What I want to say to people is that this has been a scary process… I did not think at all about how that would effect my entire life, how that would effect my family. And I would not change anything. I would do exactly what I’ve done in terms of speaking out and getting the word out, but I’ve definitely learned a lot about communication and how communication works.”

    She continued: “My daughter has been with me for some of the rallys and she’s watched and she’s seen just how powerful people’s responses have been to this information and I want her to understand that her voice matters. That girls are not to be sold. They’re not objects. Girls cannot be sold to slavery. That is unacceptable… That a single girl can be revolutionary.”

    • Liza says:

      Interesting. This isn’t at all what she said in the beginning when she took credit for starting the movement in social media, claiming that she looked and nothing was out there, so she started the movement. Did she really think no one would notice?

  18. Ramaa Mosley is doubling down in the exploitation of kidnapped Nigerian girls in her quest to profit off their pain. #MaryStrawberry

  19. Michelle Obama ‘Heartbroken’ over Nigeria Kidnapped Girls

    http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/missing-nigeria-schoolgirls/michelle-obama-heartbroken-over-nigeria-kidnapped-girls-n102061

    First lady Michelle Obama made a rare appearance on her husband’s weekly address on Saturday to express her outrage over the recent kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls, and link their disappearance to the issue of girls’ education worldwide.

    “Like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken over the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school dormitory in the middle of the night,” Obama said in the address.

    “This unconscionable act was committed by a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education — grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls.”

    “In these girls, Barak and I see our own daughters,” she added. “And we can only imagine the anguish their parents are feeling right now.”
