Black men know all too well how many white women will fetishise them instantly about their penis. Whilst many white women will discriminate against black men as long term partners many will also have fetishes about BM due to supposed vitality and size.   Read more

Yeah, this is where I remind people that, as someone on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum and depression, we need to stop putting racism in the “mentally-ill” bag. Nobody’s objecting to mental illness here. They’re objecting to Ms. Cooper’s racism. And while there can be overlap between racist beliefs Read more

I bought it on a friend’s suggestion and it is easily the worst cookbook I’ve over owned. It sadly perpetuates the myth that vegan food has to be underseasoned and bland. But they swear in it (how edgy!), so that’s all white people needed to fall over themselves for it.

Yeah - that’s the textbook definition of a caucasian person.  I just think that in America what flies as “white” vs “non-white” is less geographically based and more about phenotypical features.  Persians are caucasians by location - but whether they identify / are viewed as white / non white is basically down to Read more

In *America if you’re a POC vs Caucasian or not really depends on how dark your skin, your hair is and what your hair texture looks like (this is very different from other parts of the world where “middle eastern” is considered a sub-group like “asian”). If you’re a fair skinned with wavy / straight hair you most Read more

Persians aren’t Arab.  Middle Eastern sure, but Arab is a separate ethnicity from Persian/Iranian.

It’s certainly a way of saying there are chefs and there are cooks. Guess which group is disproportionately represented by which? Of course, when the chefs want inspiration, they hit the street vendors and appropriate a little something, without credit. One of my pet peeves is cooking, and home decorating shows, that Read more

Condé Nast has been known for this forever. But the Ivy League really isn’t that white when compared to top liberal arts or public universities. Read more

That article is really telling. What I read in that article is that chefs who aren’t white can’t succeed with a restaurant based on classic American or “white” cuisine because they’re ultimately not considered American.

Ironically, much of the food considered “American” was invented by enslaved people stolen from Read more

I’m not even that plugged in (I have a couple of friends who work in theater) and I don’t think I’ve ever heard a kind word spoken about her. I remember when Glee was on, there were all kinds of blind items about her racism and general nastiness.

Started watching  re-runs of Rhoda last year to actually have an opinion on this infamous storyline and I ended up appreciating it  too. I never really warmed to Joe and considering how quickly the two were married, I thought it was a fairly refreshing and  appropriate outcome. It will always suck how the show wasn't Read more

IN the UK, in the 70s, we had 'Rhoda' but we never had the 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' so we could never quite understand why this perpetually grinning bobblehead kept on turning up on a Jewish comedy show. Then 'Ordinary People' came out and people kept asking: 'How could Rhoda possibly have been friends with this awful Read more
