It’s almost like people of color are statistically more likely to be living in poverty than whites...

How can anyone demand full equality while denying full equality to others?

Religion is a man (read: penis havers) made institution meant to promote a pro-patriarchy worldview

Good stuff here. I would put some of these on my wish list but knowing my family, I would never see them. As the saying goes, when you want something nice for Christmas, you have to get it yourself.

That’s the key. I was floored to hear some old white MAGAt hag talk about how “classy” it was to have Melania as FLOTUS. Let’s see, we’ve got an Eastern European “model” with a portfolio of nudes vs. an Ivy League grad with her own successful law career and no nude pics. Then I remembered that for MAGAts, “classy” Read more

If the public at large pays to see a movie, they have a right to speak on it. Do I agree with mofos who say that Black Panther was overrated? Fuck naw, what the fuck? But that’s their opinion, wrong ass fuck as it may be, but it’s their right and I will defend it. Read more

She’s a Republican First Lady. They ALL fade away quickly. She’s under very little scrutiny now especially considering how divisive her husband is. I can’t imagine the country is going to care much about her after he’s gone.

Is Melania a hero because she was perfectly fine with real estate fraud and money laundering but Trump’s treason might be making her feel a little bit uncomfortable? Read more

Random b-ball player saying he wouldn’t have met his wife if he hadn’t been playing basketball in the Toronto and then getting mad when someone comments that he is implying that his job status allowed him to pull a random white chick is understandable..... until he implies black women are bulldogs.

i always notice the language when it comes to statements like this. i remember how much folks jumped on Serena for “disrespecting” black men for saying her husband treated her better than any black men she dated, i note that she still called us men and didnt say it was all of us, just the few she dated. notice how Read more

This episode was insufferable. Maybe my least favorite of the series. The smarminess of Philip to the clergy members was over the top and a perfect example of dialogue that was way too on the nose. Only to have these flaws amplified by the the quick, absurd about-face he makes after finding out that his beloved Read more

They weren’t even sympathizers. The Duke and Wallis were full on committed Nazis, and he committed treason by passing them military information. The fact that The Crown makes him out to be some misguided free-spirit is one of its worst deviations from the facts. It is true, however, that Charles was fascinated by him, Read more

Couldn’t disagree with you more on the episode - thought it was one of the weakest of the season, with a more-than-likely fictional midlife and spiritual crisis/revival for Philip turning into a largely irrelevant bottle episode. Incidentally, this is coming from someone who has had far better experiences with Read more
