Boycott Tami Roman and help us "kick her off" from Basketball Wives VH1 by sending public social awareness that interracial discrimination and bullying of any kind is not acceptable in our American society. 

Kesha Nichols was"racially assaulted" by Tami Roman for being half African-American and half Anglo-American. She proceeded to bully her throughout Season 4 of Basketball Wives to the point of having Kesha Nichols question Tami Roman's behavior to be an issue over "race". By Episode 13, it makes these matters of doubts to become undeniably true. I believe anyone who has struggled discrimination at some point of their lives would understand the depth and degree of disruption this brings to us as women of color. I don't want my kids growing up in a world where discrimination becomes a mirror of normality in our society. I won't accept it. Join us!

      Nicki Minaj isn't a fan of VH1′s popular Basketball Wives show. According to Nicki, Monday night’s episode, that involved an altercation with Kesha Nichols and Tami Roman, was what she considers ‘bullying.’

      It was only Sunday night when I created the petition with the hopes of being able to send public social awareness globally against bullying. What's surprised me the most of our petition is that one of our first signatures came from the coast of France! Yes, our first seven signatures came from countries such as France, Italy and London England. I don't know if Tami Roman knows this or anyone in the cast of Basketball Wives but when you verbally assault and bully one person on national television, that person that your bullying represents millions of viewers who will take your actions personally.

      I was distraught for over a week after watching Tami Roman fall out of her crazy wagon. I've been recovering from PTSD these past seven years and all I have to say is this petition has been a cherry of my recovery. Every signature of support is our "empowerment" to speak up and say NO to "bullying and discrimination". Speak up!

      Thank you,

      According to Boss Chick, a boycott has been placed against Tami in hopes of getting her removed from the show. The boycott has the goal of removing her from the show by "sending public social awareness that interracial discrimination and bullying of any kind is not acceptable (in) American society," writes the website.

      Tonight I've contacted a list of people that I felt was essential to have involved in our boycott. The list includes; filmmaker Lee Kirsch from the movie, "The Bully Project", Wendy Williams from The Wendy Williams Show, Media Blogger Mario Lavandeira from PerezHilton.com, CEO Nancy Lublin from Anti-Bullying Organization DoSomething.org, Chief Operating Officer Mary Schrock from PACER.org and StopBullying.gov, a government affiliate of The Obama Administration. I will be working endlessly for the next six months along with thousands of petitioner's to get Tami Roman "off" the franchise.

      I just watched season 3 and it made me so angry...for so many reasons.

      I grew up in South Africa during apartheid, I have watched other people of colour, especially women, come such a long way and accomplish so many adversaries...to watch Tami's behaviour was disturbing and it made me so angry.

      I cannot understand how the other cast members , the audience and the presenter of the reunion special, cheered on and laughed at her rants and of the footage of her hitting Meeka...I can't believe they condoned her behaviour.

      Nobody should lay their hands on another person, regardless of what that person has said...she said she was defending herself...BS...the footage clearly showed Meeka turning to Susie and then Tammi assaulting her, she has no control of herself...she feels that if she is louder and more aggressive people will listen...thats called being a BULLY & her charity is about helping young women...SMH.

      I thought this show was about strong women of colour who have accomplished a great deal, whether it's difficult relationships, being a single mother or a great business woman...the show unfortunately concretes peoples perceptions of the stereotypical women of colour with new money.

      Horrible example to send to women. Tami is not sorry for being a BULLY &I A LIAR.

      I am supporting this position because Tami Roman is an embarrassment to AA women. Tami has been violent against several women on the show and no one is holding her accountable for her action. The apology on the reunion was NOT an apology and participating in therapy does not give you a pass to assault and degrade others. . Tami is simply jealous and suffering from low self esteem. Kesha is everything Tami wants to be - articulate, poised, well-liked and a role model for young girls. Lastly, I am truly disappointed in Shaunie. On numerous occassions, she looked surprised, but did nothing to support Tami's - victims. Each season Shaunie hosts a vacation and allows one guest (Tami) to assault and abuse other guest (this season - Kesha). Basketball Wives is no longer entertaining. P.S. Evelyn is not far behind Tami as it relates to her exceptionally poor conduct and low-class language.

      Second year of this show that she bullied another cast member. This should not be tolerated...

      I thought the show would be about the lives of how these women handle being married to an athelete, dealing with the cheating,running a business,taking care of children,holding down the home front while these men are away at games,doing charity work and just being a positive role model for other young girls instead you all focus on going to lunch and taking about each other. The only ones that have sense enough to stay out of that stupid drama is Jennifer,Kenya and Keisha who is absolutely beautiful and know the true meaning of being a positive and inspirational black woman
