At what point did I “make excuses for black haters?” As I stated, we ALL have racist tendancies to one extent or another, but you can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge.

As a person of color who grew up in a very small town, I experienced the kind of racism that most people read about in books. So your “view” on the idolent lives of black folks is limited at best. I’ve never been on welfare, food stamps or taken drugs. But I have had people spit in my hair and call me a nigger. I have been punched in the face for simply standing while brown. So I have a pretty firm handle on how damaging prejudice is, no matter what race is being targeted and I have great empathy for anyone who is treated poorly on the basis of something they have little to no control over.

Ahh, that took me a minute. I read it as Hamm Dog and I was trying to figure out which celebrity you were referencing… I went with Beiber.

The Die Hard thing is attributed to hipsters and I know that no one admits to being a hipster but I’m seriously not. You can mostly tell because I desperately wish I were cooler but I don’t do anything about it. I’m painfully uncool and it’s not a statement, it just is.

That said, Die Hard is one of my favorite holiday films. My absolute favorite is The Ref, mostly because I like my holiday schamltz candy coated in profanity.

Die Hard was designed to be a heartwarming story. If you are a dork like me you listened to the commentary and discovered that the writers of the movie set out to write a happy, hopeful action movie. If you pay attention to the music choices you’ll see very intential use of christmas music and bells to drive home the holiday spIrit.

Isn’t any movie that takes place exclusively during the holidays a holiday movie? Sort of like, any movie that takes place on Halloween is a Halloween movie.

Oh my god Jungle Red, thank you so much! I have been Googling “Little Girl X” and “Detroit Girl X” for years without finding a single story. I’m getting seriously emotional right now. I read about her when I was seventeen years old and I have never, ever forgotten what she went through.

Let me rephrase. A bag of flaccid, tiny ones. Also a bag of dicks is useless without the human attached to it. And being a p**** bearer, I bleed and don’t die, so my down theres are magical and I’ll not malign them by comparing them to Shia.

I know. I opened the photo up and stared at it carefully as though the baby’s eyebrows were a matter of national security and not the thick and bushy icing on the shit cake that is everything Kardashian.

McFeely I’ve been mostly lurking for a long time and the only thing I can say is , I had no idea you hadn’t already snapped. I thought it was right around the Farrah Abraham video post that you officially lost it.

It looks more like the picture was simply airbrushed and cleaned up in photoship. If you look between her eyebrows, the patch of skin is a tiny bit grainy like someone patched over it.

From reading the article, some of what the reporter was getting at, is that these people you mentioned, their claim to fame divorced them from their crimes. People could focus on something else. But R. Kelly’s didn’t because his fame is tied up in him being skeevy and singing about bangin’ hos and humping girls on stage. When asked if he had a prediliction for teenage girls he asked an interviewer to define teenage for him. This is not a man who is trying to move on, this is a man who doesn’t give a shit. His music is heavily sex based, his song lyrics problematic and misogynistic at best and horrifying at worst. As the author stated, he dodged the charges and immediately released an album called “Age Ain’t Nothin’ But a Number”.

None of that makes him any better or worse, but he has made it clear not only does he not think what he did was wrong, he has built his career on it. Which makes him athat much more repulsive.

I thought this was common knowledge, at least about the scope of his alleged crimes. I read an article years ago in either People or maybe Rolling Stone that detailed the videos and how many families were paid off and it talked about his marriage to Aaliyah. It really did make a stomach turn. I read that full article and it just hurts my soul how these girls were ignored.

As a woman of color, it is sad but not surprising that no one cares. It’s been like that as long as I could remember. When the Jon Benet case happened, there was a terrible case happening at the same time in Detroit. An eight year old black girl disappeared and was missing for half a day. They found her in the basement of her apartment building (very similar to Jon Benet), with her hands bound with duct tape. Her attackers subdued her with the tape, poured bleach into her eyes so she couldn’t see them and then they raped her and beat her. Eight. Years. Old. At the time, I was a kid and I read the article and cried. That story has haunted me for my entire adult life. I’ve tried to find info on her for years but there isn’t one additional story other than the one I read that simply called her Little Girl X. No one followed her story. Did she live or die? Is she blind? Did they find her killers? Everyone was so busy caring about an affluent white girl that her story was nonexistant. And I’m not suggesting that Jon Benet’s case wasn’t tragic. It was, but there are lots of tragic cases that happen and the ones that seem to get the coverage are white girls. Because many view them as “innocent” whereas girls of color are still viewed as oversexed and aggressive, so when crimes happen to them, the media and the justice system says they played a part in it.

So many children of color get kidnapped every day because they are easy victims.The media doesn’t pick up their stories. No one cares. Criminals usually pick the easy targets and criminals knows better than most how little anyone cares about what happens to us. It’s the same reason why so many serial killers pick prostitutes as victims. They pick people who are least likely to reach out to the authorities for help, the least likely to be searched for. It breaks my fucking heart.

I have never purchased an R. Kelly album, listened to a single song or clicked on a music video since I read the article about his crimes years ago. Much like Chris Brown, Mel Gibson and any other crazy, violent animal who get a media pass because they are wealthy, I speak with my dollars and my dollars will not fund the lifestyles of people who casually destroy lives.
