In honor of We Wuz Kangs n Sheeit Month in the US and the obligatory full-time applause, here’s a Black, Blacker, Blackest news roundup.
I’m pretty sure it’s the babies of color who will be most affected.
But setting that aside, this sounds a lot like “Rising seas will destroy all cities; people of color most affected” or “World ends; women and children most affected”. Take responsibility for your life and be prepared for setbacks and downturns.
What’s a “racial justice expert” other than someone with a big mouth demanding “gib me muh gibs”?
And what’s this “lived experience” thing, a way to sidestep the modern nonsense of “you are whatever you claim to be”?
But there’s bad news for the campaign to put a black woman on the Supreme Court: 76% of Americans are racist haters and probably in the KKK or something.
So, about that “lived experience of being a black woman” thing, what part of that gets distilled down into the wisdom of a young black woman, successful and a former MissUSA, committing suicide? She’d complained about having to trade her time and work for money. She’d complained about the nature of the legal profession. She’d complained about people calling her too old for the beauty contest which she won. And then she killed herself. This had the benefit of putting a stop to her complaints but does not give a clear path to “we need a black woman on the Supreme Court”. (Sorry, no link for an article listing her complaints. I saw a video of someone reading and mocking the litany but couldn’t find it myself.)
That’ll do for now. I need to get back to work. I have people to support.
