I spent half the weekend ranting about that case to friends. Basically it was "A man is in jail for weeks for a joke he neither told nor was intending to tell and has been denied bail repeatedly by the judge, just because of his name. Kafka couldn't dream this up." On loop.
With an "of course, no one should be arrested for jokes but we crossed that line in India years ago."
The world call now stop citing Minority Report as the reference for arresting people for crimes before they happen. #MunawarFaruqui case is even more dystopian. He is ostensibly under arrest because the local police think he might tell "insulting" jokes and threaten public order

FRIENDS SERIA CANCELADA EM 2020? 🤔

Demos uma boa olhada no que da série dos anos 1990 #Friends não envelheceu tão bem e reunimos aqui pontos problemáticos da história dos seis amigos nova-iorquinos

Segue o fio 👇
FALTOU REPRESENTATIVIDADE 😬

#Friends é sobre seis amigos brancos e heterossexuais. Lógico que isso não implica que eles sejam racistas ou homofóbicos, mas a série ganharia mais nuances e representaria muito mais gente se tivesse um elenco diverso

Ironicamente, um ano antes da estreia de #Friends, estreou nos EUA a sitcom #LivingSingle, focada nas experiências e descobertas de um grupo de seis jovens amigos em Nova York. Soa familiar? A diferença é que os seis amigos eram todos negros 👇

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Though I put up the occasional selfie and other signs of life, my pages are basically a LIVING SINGLE fan account. 😩 So I’d be remiss if I didn’t celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show that sent me running to Brooklyn at 18 years old to be a journalist.
God ultimately had VERY different plans for me, but that other piece that LIVING SINGLE modeled for me- the one where your sister friends become your family- God delivered that tenfold. Shoutout to the prototypes for making me laugh for 5 years straight and changing my life!
Here are a few of my favorite moments again including the time @IAMQUEENLATIFAH slipped a “Ni**a” by the FCC. Goddesses 🙌🏾
