Whoopi Goldberg, you’re despicable for defending Carolyn Bryant!

If there was any news involving Carolyn Bryant, I wanted to cover it. I did hear about that Till movie coming out this year, but I didn’t want to make any mention of it until the movie was released. However, warning signs went off when I saw that Whoopi Goldberg was cast to play Emmett Till’s grandmother.

Once I heard about this story where Whoopi opened her mouth about this atrocity, I just HAD to talk about it. Trust me, Candace Owens and Kanye West haven’t been the only ones selling out in a hardcore fashion with that infamous Paris Fashion Show stunt, but this case is just as appalling.

Whoopi said that Carolyn Bryant doesn’t need to be in jail and should just admit to what she did.

ARE. YOU. FREAKING. SERIOUS?!?!?! This is low even for you! I’m not expecting her to be some major activist, but I know she knows better. I’m glad Phil used the example of the Jewish community not forgiving Nazis and how they are still getting locked up despite being centenarians even this year, so how on earth could Whoopi or any sane person defend what this murderer did. She was responsible for a lynching, got others to kill Emmett, admitted she was lying about being harassed or assaulted, and never spent a day in jail for her crimes. Now the mainstream media is going to use Whoopi’s comment as a rhetorical dodge and encourage people to forgive her. I’m not like her, so I’m definitely going to call her out. She doesn’t represent me, and she certainly doesn’t represent the Till family. I’m definitely not going to watch that Till movie, especially after this nonsense.

I’m not a fan of Whoopi Goldberg whether it’s her acting, stand-up, or her stuff on The View even though I don’t watch that show. She’s said and done stupid things, but this is the most offensive thing she’s done in her career so far. Keep in mind, this is the same person who defended the crows in the Dumbo movie and believed that they should’ve kept the “I Ain’t Seen No Elephant Fly” song let alone having the characters in the remake (even Tim Burton was smart enough NOT to include them). I’ve said this multiple times, but this bears repeating…the lead crow’s name is Jim! Speaking of Disney, this is also the same person who played a character while portraying Black stereotypes and using her “hood” voice. Yes, I’m obviously talking about Shenzi the hyena from The Lion King, but you knew I was going to make that potshot given the reputation I got here (I’m sure Carolyn Bryant thinks all Black people are like that character or the other hyenas). This is straight-up blasphemous what she did and I don’t see how any person could find what she said to be good.

Whoopi, you’re a godforsaken traitor for defending that white supremacist devil!

Random words you didn’t know had origins in African languages

My life has been very busy, but I thought I would squeeze in a little post of educational variety if any of you care. I find it interesting to find various etymologies and I want to be good at other languages besides English. You’d be surprised by some origins used in English alone.

Goober: It comes from the Kikongo word “Nguba” which means peanut.

Tango: You thought that was a Spanish word? Nope! It’s literally the Lingala and Kikongo word for “time”. When the slaves were in Argentina and Uruguay, some of them were from the Congo and remembered some of their musical and dance traditions. Those moments would be addressed as “Kongo ya tango” which means Congo time in those languages.

Safari: It’s not just about a specific kind of tourism or environment. That comes from the Swahili word for “travel”.

Voodoo: That form of magic is an Anglicized version of the Ewe (pronounced Ye-we, a language spoken in Togo, Benin, and some parts of Ghana) word Vodo which means “spirit” or “ghost”.

Okra: That food comes from the Igbo word Okuru.

Jenga: I’m sure you all have played that game with the wooden blocks at some point, right? The name of the game comes from “Kujenga” which means “to build” in Swahili. I legitimately didn’t know that until weeks ago!

See, I don’t always have angry posts as of recently.

This Racist Indonesian at Northwestern University Spotted with Blackface to Mock the New Ariel

Sorry for saying that I wouldn’t be posting as much. I did surprisingly have some free time yesterday and I just had to post on this story when I found out about it.

It’s been a while since I ranted about Disney on this blog!

This Indonesia Law student at Northwestern University was caught doing a disgusting parody of those reaction videos of the upcoming Little Mermaid trailer featuring Halle Bailey. Yes, I did see the original trailer even though I have no plans to see this remake. I remember the racist backlash when they announced the casting a few years ago, but wow these white supremacists and their sellout allies have been absolutely livid. These same people who didn’t bat an eye about Scarlett Johanson playing Motoko Kusanagi in the American live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell are throwing a tizzy about the new Ariel. It wasn’t limited to the racists of the Caucasian persuasion, but this bigot from the Jakarta region just had to get his Al Joelson on TikTok and now he’s getting dragged on the net for his blatant racism. I hope the pressure is on for him to get expelled and deported back to his homeland. I get Disney has been getting a ton of buzz once the trailer dropped and there were all these reaction videos of Black girls seeing an Ariel who looked like them. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against them for wanting to see themselves in a positive way, remake or not, but this remake isn’t going to make the House of Mouse a bastion of anti-racist allyship. Can we at least agree that much, everybody? Remember that this is the same company that tried to make that Princess of North Sudan Movie not even a decade ago, tried to trademark “Dia de los Muertos” with Coco, and (if you’ve known me for a while, you see where this is going) never owned up to the racist stuff they did with The Lion King with the portrayal of the hyenas and still haven’t dropped the “Hakuna Matata” trademark to this day. I’m also glad Phillip brought up the whitewashing and blackface with real-life people or fictional characters who weren’t white, to begin with. I’m also sick of people who tell me not to call out stuff with fiction when these same people freak out about stuff like this. I could namedrop certain bloggers who attacked me or think that way, but I’m not that petty. It’s 2022 and people are still being complete morons and showing their klan hoods because of a new depiction of someone from the Disney Princess Breakfast Club.

To that guy who pulled off that blackface nonsense, you won’t get to kiss the girl with your bigotry. I had to shoehorn a Little Mermaid reference in somewhere.

From Child Star to Matricidal Maniac: Ryan Grantham is Now Serving a Life Sentence

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-63005840

To quote a certain YouTuber: It has happened…AGAIN!

This Gen Z Canadian actor known for his roles in Riverdale, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Supernatural got busted when he shot his own mom in 2020, but got convicted just days ago. Not only did he kill his mother while she playing piano, but he also had a weed and alcohol-fueled bender, and threatened to kill Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during this time. What took the justice system this long to lock him up? Was it because he was involved in big-name movies and shows? I’m just asking questions here. I know this is in Canada instead of the US, but isn’t it telling that this brat murdered his own mother and lived to tell about it, yet George Floyd didn’t kill anyone and got a knee on his neck the same year? It’s something to think about. Ryan Grantham better have the rest of his life to think about his actions in killing his own flesh and blood, doing drugs, and threatening to kill the leader of his home country.

Side note: If you want to shut up racist idiots about how certain people do “all the crimes”, then bring this up and call it a “white-on-white” crime among other stories.

I’m sorry to hear that Barbara Waite died due to her son’s gun, but this should’ve never happened. I’m not surprised it didn’t get that much attention in the news.

Posting won’t be as frequent

Sorry. I hope to at least post something once a week, but I can’t promise on what day given my new schedule and how busy I am in my offline life now. It has been a positive change, but it’s something that has been taking more of my time. I do have a lot of stuff to rant about, but it’s not the time to do so. Sigh…it feels like even when something good happens to me, I still see the negatives in everything else…

I had never heard of Vidor, TX until days ago, and YIKES! I can see why it’s called the most racist town in America!

This woman is brave for bringing this up on TikTok. I have never been to Texas in my life so far and I had never heard of Vidor, so please forgive me for not knowing. What I’m not naive about is how hateful and racist multiple areas are. I’m not surprised, but I’m disgusted how this is still a Sundown Town even in 2022. So many humans are disgusting and you need to know how bad this town is.

So the VICTIM has to pay restitution in Iowa? FOR SHAME!

Sorry for not posting as much this week. I had some big changes (all good though) in my life, so I’ve been incredibly busy. I heard this story and I was so enraged. Here’s another example of the hypocrisy in the injustice system. I’m not going to put too much on there, so I’m going to ask you some questions.

Would Becky have to pay any restitution for defending herself against a violator and get jail time if that happened to her?

Why aren’t the feminists hailing her as a hero?

Skeletal Diadem

The fanfare felt enforced
To deflect from the catacombs that fueled a coronation
An intercontinental legacy of blood was buried
One doesn’t have to be from America to face potential book-burning
Jewels, artifacts, and human beings
Illegally exported
“But we [took/stole] it fair and square!”
Shouted the sycophants’ ghosts
To harbor this uncommon wealth
One didn’t have to be part of the Axis (saying nothing about a lineage from that “house”)
To set up concentration camps decades ago
Carte blanche set to bury the crimson oceans
Beliefs, languages, and jobs
Enforced for these forms of erasure
The so-called Gold Coast made their funds ever stronger
This antiquated cash bought the ancestors of many, including on this soil
Even those in the modernized Baratanac had their rightful qualms
The crowned ancients didn’t look like those who ruled for centuries
The old coins and art-facts speak for themselves (afros and cornrows?)
An apology is only a sliver of what needs to be done
The rest is rightfully owed cash
Despite an unexpected abdication, it’s still a skeletal diadem no matter how adorned the wearer is

Pondering my own opinions and observations

I had been thinking a lot today and I’m trying not to give into an old habit of caring (too much) about what other people think of me or what I say. Sometimes I wonder if the things I post have some kind of important impact on people. Sure, I get some likes and positive comments here and there which is cool, but there are times when I wonder if people are either trying to be nice or badmouthing me behind my back (figuratively and/or literally whether offline or online). I’ve actually been surprised that I haven’t had certain reactions whenever I talk about severe subjects or have controversial insights on society or forms of entertainment. Yes, I am aware that I have gotten a certain reputation when it comes to my thoughts on various movies and anime series, but I won’t be going there in that post. I have to do my best to stick to my guns, especially when I know I’m right or when I can back up the opinions I have with evidence and logic.

Have any of you had those thoughts before on your blog like when you get specific comments or get attention for certain posts you’ve typed?
