I mean that's why I say the "benefits" of Epic Game store is BS. The benefit is more money to already rich people but that they had the balls to pretend it would be better for the devs? My ass.
I ain't surprised. That's the usual MO.
Oh the drip, I would buy that Jacket. Damn this some tight designs.
Lol, Black Panther is nothing but fodder for internet arguments here now.It's astounding that some white people are so desperate for "representation" in the wake of their despising of BP & black love for it that they flock not to a kind, altruistic, vulnerable and earnest role model surrounded by women he respects like T'Challa but a violent, petty, stunted, and vindictive killer like the Joker surrounded by women he stalks, coldly suffocates and ignores. It really really says so much. You'd think nothing about that movie would be something people would want to embrace as white culture or in the character as aspirational but I guess I just keep overestimating people.
Welcome back, Spinluck.Hope y'all been well.

No one cares that there will be kids going to the theaters to finally see well-written heroes or villains that look like them for a change.
Joker ain't as deep as people try to make it seem, the guy is a piece of garbage lol.
One of the better written comic book movies though.
I'm still disappointed that Julian Castro dropped out.
His supporters are equally obtuse...four years later.
2016 candidate field was worse. What we got this time is "progress."
Yup. Hearing my grandfather tell me about whites only signs was so strange to me. I'd never made the connection to his age and how recent that shit was. Like I knew the dates but didn't understand that they lived through it.It hits differently when you're in a black church and they ask the kids 12 and under to come to the front altar, turn around, and watch as all the congregation who was alive when MLK was assassinated to stand up, and more than half the room stands, to prove the point that it wasn't that long ago.
I know it wasn't that long ago. Like that timeline American Slavery > segregation > present. But man, when you are in the room and you can SEE it though.
Ain't that always how it goes? Point out a problem, get ignored and then when you get tired of being ignored you get tone policed. Imagine if that's how that worked for any other situation.
The movie, Just Mercy, begins with a background story concerning a lynching.
I have gone through this thread and one of the previous ones and have seen that the attrition is severe.
Yeah I just keeo the energy for my blog posts
Ultimately, we all gotta ask ourselves what's best for us to get through our day to day.I have gone through this thread and one of the previous ones and have seen that the attrition is severe.
It's one of the reasons I stopped going to an integrated church and went back to black.
I just don't have the energy for it. Seeing Erica Garner and Yolanda Carr (Atatiana Jefferson's mom) die from basically grief, I don't need that kind of stress in my life.
How do we fix racism?
Here's a better series of questions for you. How willing are the white majority to undone so many laws and aspects of society that make things better for them?
Criminal jusitice system
The tech sector
Gender & racial pay disparities
And mind you these are the aspects of society that came to in my head. How willing are ya'll or would they be to ripping apart what's wrong and help make it equal.
Keep in mind we have lawmakers and people that see fixing this is literally evil. Or rather the don't give a damn and want to have a societal edge.
The real answer is pfft nah. If ya'll aren't willing to fix crap you created...no amount of yeah we need to live together and be friends magic power will fix a broken society.
