    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    https://time.com/5766186/jared-kushner-interview/ I don't know if he thought he looks good in this interview, but he actually sounds unbearably smug and in over his head.

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    I saw Dolemite is My Name and the movie goes on for a bit too long but is pretty funny. Love Eddie Murphy.

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    Some of the "royal protocol" rules seem totally made up. If you followed all the "royal protocol" rules I can only conclude that you can't do anything. Here's some of the rules I've read: 1) Can't take your coat off indoors 2) Can't wear flat shoes 3) Can't wear pants 4) Can't wear nail polish...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    Which ones? I'm genuinely curious bc I didn't ever see a critical comment of Meghan that didn't go back to race. Like "her hair is falling out of her bun, it should be neat and shiny with no wisps" was a common one. On the surface that had nothing to do with race. But those are white standards...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I don't think reading trash rags is ever healthy. There's a reason they are known as trash rags. Their business model is misleading click bait articles. With that being said I do think celebs should have a team of lawyers if there is something truly libelous. @becca I disagree that we can't...

    I definitely think there’s something manufactured about the comments. I notice that like an hour after am article is published there’s thousands of comments. 10,000 people cannot care THAT much about the Queen going to church on Christmas.

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    @Husky I was reading an article about twitter bots and how easy it is to generate "authentic" sounding responses based on some buzzwords already popular on the internet. I notice that the DailyMail's "top comments" are always the most extreme and racist, so I'm always wondering whether these are...

    @mag I think a couple of things stand out in the across-the-board harassment of BRF members: 1) Women get it worse than men. Even Sophie (one of the most inoffensive of all BRF members) was mocked for ... idk what actually. 2) There's a huge disconnect between the fairly judicious royal...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I feel like racist attacks are different from other attacks because of the historical baggage behind them and also because race is the one thing you cannot change about yourself. Also I feel like the racism was popping up in weird places. A KP Instagram post about Kate at Wimbledon shouldn't...

    Royalty Thread #11: Putting the "Fun" in Dysfunctional

    I was thinking ... I think the Daily Mail escalated the racist coverage once Meghan was pregnant. And I truly think that's because a huge portion of the UK populace simply could not accept a BLOOD royal family member being mixed race. They can accept non-white UK citizens, maybe even a non-white...
