Janet Hubert deserved better than what she got in the reunion
I don’t know what happened behind the scenes but I know that Will Smith didn’t offer her a real, clear apology. Just a reflexive “I’m sorry” after she apologized to him 3 times for dragging him after he ruined her fuckin career
Maybe it happened off screen or in tape that got cut but it didn’t happen in the edited public version
Watching the new Red Table Talk which has more context and conversation between Will Smith and Janet Hubert ...
Fam ... more of her story comes out and this is good but HE SPENDS SO MUCH TIME TALKING ABOUT HIS REASONS FOR WHAT HE DID
Will Smith and Barack Obama both need to have several seats this week
Still no proper apology to her and they are definitely selling his narrative while saying he avoids selling his narrative

"I had no recognition of that dynamic"
because as a light skinned black man star, you didn't need to recognize that dynamic in order to live your life
he ruined her life because his father beat his mother and he needed maternal approval and when he didn't get enough from her he fucked her over?

the misogynoir!!!!!!! what happened to him and his mom is terrible and justifies nothing

My phone just showed me this picture of me and my mom, and in looking at it, I think it’s so strange when people think I don’t look like her Image
(Photo taken during the first week of March 2020 ... feels like years ago.)
To make it up to my mom for posting that home photo I will also post this very dressy one from a little while before, at Mr. ProfChanda’s birthday dinner. Image

So here’s why this kind of “well, actually” bugs me: this is classic neo-Jim Crow shit where on paper it affects everyone but the only people in practice it makes a material difference to are a specific group. They know that. We know that. Let’s not play this game.
It doesn’t matter — for now — if you assign numbers to children who fit into French white supremacy because their numbers will never be looked up by the police or intelligence agencies.

The way Obama writes about women here ... uh. Wow.
The amazing thing is that he thinks what’s embarrassing here is what motivated him to study. What’s embarrassing is that he’s a grown ass man who has been the most powerful person in the world, and he is STILL writing about young women like a fucking pick up artist.
“Ethereal bisexual”? I can’t.

This is y’all’s hero?

For everyone freaking out about Wayne County, I think this is the key detail: it’s a delay tactic that can be addressed by democrats agreeing to an audit/recount.

Also the state board can make the decision for them.

This also seems firmly like a state law case so Michigan Supreme Court. Although conservatives have been have a field day with the 14th’s equal protection clause, designed during reconstruction to protect Black people, for 40 years now. That will def be their federal case.
Explainer from @MrProfChanda: So it’s going to go to the state board. If state board has same problem, it goes to district court. District court will probably scream bloody murder at them. Michigan Supreme Court can only overrule them if District screws up the law somehow.

I got 3 comments on this bullshit at Stanford:
1. Even if the executive order wasn't a long, first amendment violating white whine, the systemic racism advice is an overread
2. Stanford is not America
My cute version if 2 is Stanford is not the United States because Harvard is.

Go Crimson! lol
On a more serious note, compare Stanford's behavior with how academic institutions in Germany responded to the Nazi takeover:

Lets be clear also that trans people aren’t a social media phenomenon. Those of us who are not binary or one way or another are real, physically real. This claim that we are social media thought police is so dehumanizing.
What a stupid hill to die on
