There has been one group of people who’ve been seemingly silent since a video was released of a McKinney, Texas, police officer brutally violating a 15-year-old girl in a bikini after being called to shut down a pool party. People all over social media and black media have noticed the deafening silence of mainstream (ahem … white) feminists when it comes to speaking out against the brutality Dajerria Becton received at the hands of David Eric Casebolt.

The tweet below is just one example of how people have been calling out so-called feminists who don’t seem to be interested in a young black girl’s brutalization.

On Tuesday, Roland Martin called out several organizations, including the National Organization for Women, that he felt should be stepping up to the plate and showing their support for Dajerria.

Martin focused on NOW and stated why: “All too often, in cases involving black women, NOW has been missing in action.”

“You can’t say that you care about women,” Martin added, “but then you only care about women who are nonblack.”

Martin also put the organization on blast on Twitter:
