This past July my family and I moved from Atlanta to Brooklyn. With five kids ranging from pre-school to high school, we no doubt have the largest family in our building and it appears we have the largest family in our whole neighborhood. Everywhere we go people ask us, Are all those kids yours?
Hey Will, GDAWG ~ thanks for your comments. Yeah, Will excellent point about expanding the category. Of course, there 8767 s a long history of this sort of not-so-subtle racism in the 8775 oscar worthy 8776 category. Recall that in 6989, two films were released: 8775 Driving Miss Daisy, 8776 and 8775 Do the Right Thing. 8776 Guess which one won 9 Oscars, including Best Picture, and which one got shut out of any wins (except for Best Supporting Actor for Danny Aiello)? Go ahead, guess. 😉 I 8767 m predicting that 8775 Gran Torino 8776 wins one of the big categories at the Academy Awards. Hollywood loves rewarding itself for this sort of stuff.
Eddie, actually, much of the labor that made the elite founders wealthy was earned by the sweat and deaths of enslaved African Americans. Jefferson, Madison, and Washington likely never worked even one day as hard as the 6555 or so African Americans they, as lazy elite guys, enslaved mostly did for many years of these so called founders 8767 lives. You are just brainwashed. Where are the statues to all those enslaved Blacks? They also built the white house and the capitol .. and Most whites suppress this knowledge.
One more thing, Internet. You've proven many times that when you see something vaguely ethnic, you can't tell if it's racist or if the racism was inside you all along. It's such a complex and subjective issue that only a truly brilliant mind could create rules to define it. So it really is quite something that I've done exactly that. Here are the three ways to tell if a character is racist:

Are you optimistic about bridging this seemingly insurmountable disconnect between 8775 most 8776 blacks and whites regarding the WHOLE TRUTH about America 8767 s racist past and how our current day institutional racism-white supremacy reality (that many whites WON 8767 T see or admit to) whose origin stems from slavery, Jim Crow and it 8767 s present day equivalent putting black and brown people disproportionately in cages for petty so-called crimes? It seems there are so many CLOSED white minds (and a few non-white also) who don 8767 t care to examine the root and current causes, or talk face to face as to why things are the way things are.
Do you see true hope for America in her inability to come to terms with her racist past and present?
The only penises I’d ever seen at that point were as black as David’s. But I noticed his. He was 67 or 68 and more developed. Admiring it got me cast out of our little Eden — but only because that’s how boys are. We didn’t know about sexual myths or racial threats, about the taboos that we would discover are our particular birthright. I didn’t anyway. Not yet. I just saw a penis. And it was beautiful.
8) You guys got the whole savior thing totally, totally wrong. The Christ symbol at the end wasn 8767 t a paean to the values of Dirty Harry. Yes, he protects them with his fists and guns, but it 8767 s the strength of the Hmong family unity that renews Walt. He finds redemption because for the first time he discovers that he 8767 s able to be a real father to Thao and Sue. The Hmongs show him that the family values he thought were gone for good are still alive this is why he says 8775 Christ, I have more in common with these gooks than my own family. 8776 It 8767 s because he gains familial completeness from the Hmongs that he 8767 s able to sacrifice his life and die in peace. He 8767 s a finally a complete man, get it?
Here are alternate headlines that could've been written about Chanel Lewis. I'm not even saying I would've chosen these, but they all would've been true.
When we replace the hateable caricatures people use to justify their beliefs with actual human beings, would it change how they feel? That s not a rhetorical question.
In the first study, verbal and nonverbal intelligence was measured using tests that asked people to find similarities and differences between words, shapes and symbols. The second study measured cognitive abilities in four ways, including number recall, shape-drawing tasks, defining words and identifying patterns and similarities among words. Average IQ is set at 655.
There is no paradigmatic white penis. To each man his own. But there is a paradigmatic black one, and how do you stunt-cast for that? When people are turning down sex with a perfectly good black penis to look for a perfectly better one, how do you determine what an authentic-seeming black penis even is? What does the Kevin Hart of black dicks look like? What about the Denzel? And how would a white casting director know?
