Paul, haha! I love that you forced them. Can’t believe I still haven’t seen it! BTW, the movies Editor at Paste made a Richard Linklater doc that came out this year, and it got lots of love. ’21 Years: Richard Linklater.’ Might be of interest.

Wow, I have never used this phrase before but he is really playing his ‘race card.’ Very troubling.

sfmom haha! That smoke is troubling. I hope the dress survived its wild night with RiRi.

Hampton, thanks for the recommendation. SOME of us Americans do love legitimately good TV (even if we get sucked into some of the junk too, lol), so don’t give up on us ;)

sfmom, ‘We are sophisticated grownups, now come back and watch BBC with me’—LMAO!

Okay, I’m checking out this show too, then.

Ima, thank you so much—this really means a lot to me. I couldn’t figure out if I’d gone crazy the other night. I was up until 2 AM watching the news and reading about the decision. I was hoping that all that information would go towards something positive, and I’m so happy to hear that our articles are household talking points :) Thank you!

Samantha, yes I think that’s definitely what she said.

I hesitated about posting, because it’s so easy to write her off (because of things like that). But I’ve had a lot of friends tell me about their parents ‘casual racism’, and that’s just as damaging.

Paul, the scared people are, IMO, looking for a reason not to support the cause. There are plenty of people, including people of color, who agree with you though. I’m just not one of them.

Karen (below) also worded it well:

‘it drives me absolutely crazy that people cannot seem to grasp that SOME people being destructive does not invalidate the entire CAUSE.’
