I have West Indian parents they did not let me play with my education.  I had to do the work.  I really never gave them trouble to go to school, my younger siblings though.  My mother had to put her foot down for my younger sister.

I don’t care for that one because it kind of minimizes her black friend’s contributions to him saying yes. But one of them in particular not only finally convinced Schultz, Kenneth Kelly, but it was also his idea to have Franklin be a background character. Kotaku does a better job handling how the letters unfolded, inc Read more

If I were Deray, I’d be swapping out that janky blue vest for some camouflage. Stay checking  your six, bruh.

That can be one of the problems with looking at things through our current sensibilities. At the time, having a black kid in a comic or on a tv special was a big deal and a very positive, if not daring move. Was animated Franklin stereotypical in a lot of ways? Yes.

Lucy doesn’t see race. She just calls the cops on black people minding their own business because she got a ‘bad feeling’ about them.

The Daily Show did a bit on Franklin a while ago. They pointed out that he was far more part of the group in the comics than he was on the magical moving picture machine.  There he was sitting on the other side of the table, break dancing, giving five instead of shaking hands.

Actually, when Laaila was still a toddler, she went to Russia with Candace, where she was cared for in part by Parker’s mother. Still, you’re on the money — so to speak — about how much Parker earns in Europe, and like Diana Taurasi, the player you referred to that was paid extra to sit out a WNBA season, Parker has Read more

I’m scared to death to as much as lift my phone up to my face out in public, afraid that some asshole is going to mistake my phone for a gun and wind up getting my black ass shot. Read more

This was my thought. Why didn't anyone step and say something? I get that the big boss is scary and all, but come the fuck on. I'd rather lose my job than see it go down like this.
