Thank you Trent. Part of the anger for many of us comes from the fact that this happens ALL of the time. Nobody ever admits that they made a racial or racist comment, and that they have some growth to do. I feel like Benedict Cumberbatch recently did this, and people were so shocked that he just came out and legit admitted he was wrong, and apologized, and didn’t try to make an excuse.

Joy, weee! I’m SO psyched that you watched it. I vowed to never stop talking about the movie, because I felt like so many people missed it so thank you!
And thanks for reading the other piece. In it, I believe I linked to another really great article about how the marketing for the film might have negatively impacted its box office success. Among critics, it was very popular so a lot of us were flustered over its lack of attention.

Elyse, oooh I hope you’re right. I’ve been wondering about Papa Pope—that would make total sense. Also co-sign Quinn/Huck/Jake. They’re such a crazy little squad (though I do miss the original Gladiators sometimes).

Trent, ‘did it bother anyone else that Olivia — a black lady — is now being sold at auction on the black market’—I thought about this, and wasn’t sure how I felt. Glad you brought it up.
Actually, the first thing I thought of for some reason was the Venus Hottentot. I guess when Olivia was selling the idea to Ian, the way she kept referring to herself as this sort of prized object that would have the world going crazy—like she was a spectacle. Not sure what to do with that, but I’ll definitely keep thinking on it, going into next week.

Etta, EVERYONE has been telling me to watch Parenthood. It’s definitely on my list, though I just started Hannibal so it’ll be a minute :)
