How many people of color end up with felony and misdemeanor convictions that follow them forever for one mistake? We are not afforded the luxury of not having our mistakes (let alone the mistakes of other people who’s only tangible similarity to us is the same-ish skin tone) define us for our whole lives, and we don’t…
she’s not going to allowed to dominate the conversation, dictate the menu, have everyone cater to her ‘no perfume’ fake allergy or applaud her for having a Black man and biracial kids. And that’s REALLY what she wants
Chicago PD? CHICAAAAGO?
More to your point, doing the right thing isn’t always easy. Sometimes, most of the time, it really fucking hard. In our history as a people when has doing what was best for us ever easy?
Right. And they said they weren’t going to cover any of those expenses. And she said she couldn’t afford that and she shouldn’t have to, which is correct. She has a right to be upset by that. Particularly, when she was a lock for the best supporting actress trophy.
Yes, to what you said. I was referencing, where all this struggle with her in the industry sort of began and that was Lee Daniels throwing a fit because she asked to be paid for promotion of Precious since she had taken a pay cut for the actual role. He refused and admonished her for even asking. So she didn’t promote…
NY: Pay taxes and allow unions
This whole thing is soo.....
Nah B. I’m good.
I feel like DC wasn’t Janelle’s best, but it was her most commercially viable. Like it was the first album I felt that actually had catchy songs.
I also felt this way. #sorrynotsorry
I am not surprised they had trouble booking people. After what they did to kendrick and sza. And beyonce and rih, and drake the year before that. I sort of expected that there would be a pullout from a lot of people.
Archie really be ho’ing in these streets and I love him for it. BUT, could it be that the reason Archie can’t be emotionally intimate with women without sex is that it is fallout from being taken advantage of by Ms.Grundy!?!??!?!?! Yeah, the writer’s aren’t that deep.
I literally say out loud “what the fuck am I watching”
Wait. How did I miss that? Was there a reason why Toni was kicked out?
What makes this particularly fucked up is that there are a bunch of NA tribes that have been formally rejecting their black members left and right. Just look up the cherokee freedmen.
Funny enough, I think this is also an example of why you need black people on your design team. Cause I can see how Gucci might have done this as a take on the theme from On The Run II and thought that a bunch of rappers and ms ponytail herself would run to wear this in their videos but it was dead on arrival for…
I am still concerned that nothing was specifically mentioned with regards to Val and Melody’s whereabouts, but I will take it.
African Americans should care regardless, because due to Jim Crow there are a lot of black people who don’t have official hospital records of their birth. Or people don’t remember their correct birthday or there is mismatching dates of what the government has vs what grandma wrote down in the family bible. I see this…
