As a religious gal, I don’t think politicians should have a faith consultant. That’s all I’ll say about the topic.
Except that the journalist was guilty of this as well. And it is something I have noticed with the BBC (and us, I’m sure); they interrupt women far more than men, and they interrupt people who speak deliberately before they have finished their sentences (as in the case of Ms. Adichie), even more if their accents are… Read more
She is GLORIOUS. I don’t know the gentleman beside her (and don’t care to Google it), but he embodies every racist Trump defender.

Thankfully I think this is just a stupid joke. Pretty sure I saw her last night in her own face color.
The framing story is Persian (although derived from Indian tales), and a lot of the internal stories have the teller using Persian nomenclature (so that royalty is always “sultan,” much like how the British liked to use “tribe,” “king,” and “chief” because those were what they used for themselves), so it can be hard… Read more
