Yep. The remake has Richard Gere.
Yep. The remake has Richard Gere.
This is so true.
One day I'll share how I properly do a steak... Or how Grandma was laughing at me until she and mom stopped and just ate. Yeah, teach people how to shut their moms up would make me a fortune.
LOL. Right right.
Glad you're enjoying the channel.
You're very welcome.
Lisa! Damn, she looking fine.
There's different "comfort" levels with the examples you gave IMO. Someone who personally has discriminatory views/I feel may hold discriminatory views, I wouldn't associate with at all. I have to trust the people that I associate with and I'm not going to be around/associate with people that make me feel uncomfortable. In regards to a friend who has family that discriminates, if I'm not personally interacting with the friend's family, the only problem I would have is if my friend doesn't challenge/fight against their family's views if they spend lots of time together/they see these family members beyond reunions/holidays. You can't control your family's views and every community has to deal with family with discriminatory views (Women and LGBTQ included). Friends who have friends with discriminatory views, this is different from family since you are in control of your friends, so it would depend on how terrible the friend's friend is and why the friend is still friends with this person. For example, did they grow up together and the friend's friend "change" in college or is this a new friend the friend made at a bar a few weeks ago, etc...Hey guys, possibly inappropriate question, but... something I've been thinking about with this Jontron nonsense and some of the reactions to it:
Full disclosure, I'm a white Jew. But sometimes I can't help but feel uncomfortable around some white people with conservative/right wing beliefs, knowing that they very well might hold antisemitic beliefs/apologia. Or having a friend who is like "oh yeah my dad's great but he's also kinda racist." Or being friends with someone who is friends with a racist. You get the idea. (I would ask this question to the Jewish community thread but it doesn't exist...!)
How do you guys deal with that feeling? The innate idea that you possibly cannot ever fully trust white people because either they might say something racist or excuse someone who does? Obviously it's not 1:1 with the Black/Jewish experience... but I guess it got me thinking about how to navigate a society where white people by and large feel racism is at worst, impolite, but not dangerous or threatening. I try to find community where I can, but to put it simply, there aren't a ton of Jews around these days...
Cheers for any of the responses and hope you're having a good day.
It is some if the hardest most difficult most painful Black experience film you'll watch. To put it in perspective, I saw a tweet were Ava had to have a grieve counselor on set for the actors & actresses.Its been too long since I been in here. I actually came to rant but after writing it out I'm just gonna wish y'all some good vibes instead.
I haven't had a chance to sit down and watch When They See Us Yet. I'm glad to see Netflix giving peeps like Ava DuVernay a place to show their stuff. Funnily enough I was the one spreading word about it in my workplace. One lady said she watched half of the first ep and had to turn it off because it was getting her heated... I'm interested in what ya think.
fair enough.It is some if the hardest most difficult most painful Black experience film you'll watch. To put it in perspective, I saw a tweet were Ava had to have a grieve counselor on set for the actors & actresses.
I cried 6 times across the 4 hrs of the entire thing. Black trauma made my Black directors ain't for us. It's for the white majority to understand the injustices they've allowed to permeate.
We are all aware of our injustices
Well...yes there is
Bruh, that's the bare minimum. Hope you don't keep to yourself to much. Mrs Manky posted that self care Pic and it reminded me that we suck at it. Don't ignore yourself bruh.
Btw, Lenora that the Mammy character people was up in flames about or that someone else? Anyway that sucks. So many games, in color, and all we black & brown people have to look at is barely a handful. Well some is better than none.
Got to wait for the eventual Pokemon version based on South Africa in 2026, following the versions based in Antarctica. 1/5th of the characters will be Black or Brown, but no more than that.
