Here at The Root, we talk a lot about things like white privilege, whitesplaining, white fragility, etc. Some of the folks who read our site find it hard to understand these concepts, so it’s always helpful when we have an example that displays exactly what we mean. Today is one of those days.
It’s the very same people who say ‘why didn’t he just comply’ that are the first to say the ‘cops feared for their lives.’
Eat some ass, Josh. It probably won’t make you live longer, but at least you won’t be online.
Now that former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick’s protest has been gentrified by arm locking, kneeling before the anthem and praying (OK, that last one was just one guy, but still ... ), everyone has been trying to explain the logic behind “taking a knee.”
When Sharp Cheddar Stalin called the mothers of NFL players “bitches” in Huntsville, Ala., his

They are NOT, which is a huge bummer.
Looking good! Like the nod to the classic headband and wristbands, then just moving on. Updated for the 21st Century.
This week has been a catastrophe for Blackness. Two men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, were killed by police officers within 24 hours of each other. Neither had committed a crime that was punishable by death nor did they put any officers lives at risk. It’s inexcusable, unjustifiable, and is perpetuated by a…
Evan, I love having you on io9. These comic recaps are amazing.
The best witty comebacks use someone’s words against them, but you can’t do that if you don’t hear what they’re saying. When it comes to conversation, having a sharp wit means being a great listener.
It’s almost impossible to trust Marvel’s new Moon Knight comic, because none of the scenes on its pages might actually be happening.

The only thing I wanted after seeing BvS (besides a stiff drink) was to see Wonder Woman. After CACW I want to a Black Panther movie, the new Spider-Man movie and hell, I’m only now excited…

Tony is an idiot for jumping on the accords, but tries every step of the way to compromise with cap. Cap is an idiot for keeping his mouth shut about the paycho assassins and bucky, but…
At least they didn’t call out Jimmy Olsen’s name before they did what they did to the character, right?
