And then they rushed up in these comments streets to prove the point of this accurate article. Them - the ones that hate Black people so much they can’t wait to read The Root articles every dayum day and practice typing their illiterate mediocrity for all to see. Them - the ones that cannot stand the sight of a Black p Read more

I tend to agree with you here. He put in work, but was never truly repentant of his actions. It’s like when a CEO says some horribly racist shit, never really apologizes, says how he can SEE if people took it as racist, and then donates something like 500,000 dollars to Black Lives Matter or a similar cause and Read more

I think the concern is that it’s the journalists who are driving the narrative, not people on the ground. It’s become abundantly clear that Kobe’s colleagues, family, and friends are not going to discuss or give credence to the allegations of rape.

You can tell Megyn didn’t see the film. The movie pretty much lambasted Downey’s character as an actor that got so into his role that he thought that doing that was a good idea.

Megyn, the joke in Tropic Thunder was directed at stupid White assholes wearing Blackface, not at Black people. There’s this thing called context, which happens to be very important. You and Justin Trudeau can take a long walk off a short pier with your White nonsense.
