It's Snarkurday!

It’s like an itch you can’t stop scratching ... Usher’s herpes lawsuits, that is.

The first ... first ... accuser, suing for $20 million, has now revealed herself: Laura Helm. And, Lisa Bloom, who is representing several ... several ... of Usher’s accusers, has filed more documents including one that details how one young man ended being infected by the singer when, he ALLEGES, that Usher exposed him to herpes when they f**ked at a Koreatown spa in L.A.

That ain’t no Happy Ending, y’all.

Now, Usher has called all of his accusers liars, but he will not say if he has the herpes and is refusing to take an STD test.

Take that for what it is, but until we know better, Just Say No, to Usher.
There are some "celebrities" who should never speak, Tweet, Instagram or Facebook because their view of the world needs to be kept silent.

Melissa Joan Hart. She recently whined all over Instagram about her family vacation being ruined because of Hurricane Maria.

Yup, the semi-rich, scarcely talented TV star, and her family were headed to the Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana, but couldn’t go because a hurricane came along and washed away the homes and businesses and livelihoods of all kinds of people; so Melissa whined about missing her vacation on social media. She later removed her post once she realized the storm killed people, but this kind of delusion is nothing new for Hart ...

Back in 2015, she promoted her clothing line on the 14th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks with the tagline:
“Free Shipping in honor of the victims, families & first responders of 9/11. Use the promo code ‘911’ during your online checkout at”
Yup, you may have lost your spouse, lover, son, daughter in the worst terror attack ever on American soil, but, hey, you get Free Shipping!

Seriously, bitch, take a seat.
This may be true, and it may not be, but ... twenty-year-old Kylie Jenner is ALLEGEDLY pregnant by her boyfriend of five months, twenty-five-year-old rapper Travis Scott.

That Woman has yet to confirm the pregnancy because they’re still trying to iron out the details of how Kylie will pee on a stick on TV ... break up with the Baby Daddy on TV ... get her first ultrasound on TV ... get back together with the Baby Daddy on TV ... give birth on TV ... break up with the Baby Daddy on TV ... get back together with the Baby Daddy on TV ... have DCF remove the child from her home on TV ... and then launch a new lipstick line.

No, seriously, that’s how it’ll play out. They’re Kardastrophes after all.

Oops. It got twice as skeevey because now Khloe is pregnant, too. That Woman will be working overtime whoring out two babies!
It’s almost a year later and folks are still talking about Mariah’s Carey’s Epic New Years Eve Fail, aka The Clusterf**k Heard Round The World.

To recap, Mimi tottered around a stage on impossibly high heels singing, ahem, live to a track that she didn’t to remember or even know. Mimi and her team later blamed Dick Clark Productions, and DCP placed the blame at the high heels of the diva who didn’t show up to rehearse.

Now, finally, Miss Ryan Seacrest is ready to dish; during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! Seacrest insinuated that the fault was all Mimi because she refused to do a soundcheck:
“That crew, that team, that staff is the best in the business. They put on the biggest live music events and they know what they’re doing. I know how good they are at their jobs. My reaction was, ‘She was working with the best.’ I find it hard to believe they made big mistakes that bad.”
Seacrest, of course, knowing Mimi missed the soundcheck ... I think ... scurried several blocks away after introducing Carey and says he had no idea what was going on:
“When it was happening, it was hard for me to see and hear because we’re in Times Square and there was a lot going on. I had to be told that something was going on and then try to find a monitor to react to. So I wasn’t quite sure what was happening, actually.”
Really, Ryan? You’re working with the best team ever and you’re a nitpicky diva yourself, and someone had to tell you to watch?

I think you were sipping tea and watching it all with a wry smile on your face.
When you’re born wealthy and spoiled you never really learn to share ... even within your own family; and that’s exactly the case with spoiled brats Ivanka and Junior _____.

It seems Newsweek got hold of some ancient interview Big Daddy Little Hands _____ did with Howard Stern and, if you didn’t already feel sorry for Tiffany _____, this might ... might ... make you change your mind.

The interview ALLEGEDLY took place in late 2005, and in it, Stern asks _____ about a rumor Ivanka and Junior tried to erase Tiffany from Daddy’s will; _____answers:
“I have a friend who is also like a very rich guy. And he said how his children hate the new children coming along and everything else; I said, ‘Yeah, because every time you have a child, it’s 20 percent less to the people [Inaudible].'”
So then Stern asks if Junior and Ivanka were trying to “bump off a child.” Trump instantly says:
Stern asks if that rumor is true and _____ tries to evade the question but Stern keeps asking it, and finally _____ says:
Then _____ points out that when he dies, all his kids will be inherit ... wait for it, he actually said it ... _____ University and _____ Ice bottle water. _____ U is gone and _____ Ice is now only available at _____’s tacky hotels and resorts.

Big coins, eh? Now, to be fair, ______ may have been lying about Ivanka and Junior wanting to nix Tiffany from the bankroll, but then that means he’d paint his own children as greedy monsters for a story; or, he’s telling the truth and his two oldest kids are evil greedy spoiled self-entitled loons who will never amount to anything.

Either way ... I think on the day Daddy kicks it and the will is read, Tiffany will be the proud owner of a warehouse filled with MAGA hats.
Back before Leah Remini left the Cult of Scientology, she co-starred with Kevin James on The King of Queens, a minor hit for CBS. The show ended and Leah and Kevin went about their business; he made a couple of films and she began taking down a cult.

James returned to TV, with a new TV wife, last year in Kevin Can Wait and toward the end of the season Leah Remini guest-starred on the show, ands the ratings went way up. The producers loved the higher numbers and sop they asked Leah Remini to join the cast only there was one hitch: Kevin James’ character had a wife and how would it look if he and Leah, who plays an old flame, were all flirty and stuff. What to do, what to do ...

Kill off the wife. Yes, they killed the wife character, played by Erinn Hayes and brought Remini back full-time and will slowly—so as not to alienate fans—have Leah and Kevin become a TV couple. Wow. But, when asked how they planned to reveal the death of the “wife,” producers said they would keep it thoughtful and simple except ... not so much ... this is how they did it:

The new season began with Kevin’s character, aptly named Kevin, looking at the mail and finding a letter addressed to his wife from her gym that read:
“We haven’t seen you, we miss you.”
Kevin replies:
“You know what, so do I.” 
His TV daughter Kendra—actress Taylor Spreitler—grabs the letter and says:
“It’s been over a year since she died, they shouldn’t still be sending this.”
Then Kevin makes a joke about not throwing it out, because he wants to save the coupon attached for a kung fu lesson.

Wow. That was sweet and simple: the junk mail reveal. And Kevin made need to Kung Fu lessons to protect him if he ever comes across Erin n Hayes—the now-dead TV wife—in an LA alley.

Just sayin’.
I used to like Wendy Williams until she went the Trans humor route and I stopped watching. As a Snarker, however, I loved her daily dose of gossip, though now she might not be as thrilled with the rumor mill ...

The Daily Mail reports that Wendy’s husband, Kevin Hunter, has ... ALLEGEDLY ... been carrying on a ten-year affair with 32-year-old massage therapist Sharina Hudson; the Daily Mail knows this because they’ve been watching the adulterers for over a year! They claim Kevin has been living a double life, moving between his home with Wendy and the condo he bought for Sharina. And the Daily Mail has pictures of Kevin and Sharina—he calls her “Shawty”—at the apartment, the gym, and even at the grocery store ... pictures showing Sharina wearing a big ass diamond engagement ring. And they also have photos of the inside of the mailbox at the new, private $765,000 house Kevin ALLEGEDLY upgraded them to, showing both Kevin and Sharina’s names. Sources claim they live a pretty normal life other than the fact that Kevin has a wife, another house and a son just a couple of towns over.

And this really is nothing new for Kevin Hunter; he’s not really what you might call a gentleman. Back in 2008 he was sued for sexual harassment by a talent broker who worked on Wendy’s radio show; that was settled out of court. And Kevin had an affair back in 2001, which Wendy now admits to having known about, and decided to stay with him because the cheating made them stronger ... or made him hide the next time even better?

And so she’s doing the same now; when the story broke and Wendy appeared on her show, she flashed her wedding ring and called the rumors fake:
“I stand by my guy. All is well in Hunterville. Don’t believe the hype. And if there was hype, believe me, I would let you know. And by the way, I’ll be following this story. So I guess I’ll have to watch to find out what happens.”
It’s not true he has two homes ... not true he gets mail at a house with another woman, with whom he shops and dines and works out and lives; and, also not true, is the quote from Sharina’s parents saying they want Kevin to dump Wendy and marry Sharina because they want grandbabies.

Keep following it Wendy ... we’ll follow it to divorce court.
Lenny Kravitz is steamy hot. But this isn’t about that; it’s about Lenny and chocolates.

Lenny is living in Paris while working on a new album, but he took a night off for the opening performance of the Paris Opera Ballet. While most men wore tuxedos, Lenny wore black leather ... like I said, hot ... and in one of the pockets was some chocolate he brought along for a snack. And that hidden chocolate caused some issues when, minutes after the lights went down, Lenny pulled that piece of chocolate out to nibble on, and as he unwrapped it, a man in front of him went off:
“Shhhh! Stop eating! Stop eating!”
And so Lenny got out of his seat and confronted the man:
“Don’t tell me what to do. This is France!”
And we’ll stop ... This is France? That’s an excuse? I’m’a use that if I ever get stopped by a cop and see what happens, though it clearly didn’t help Lenny because ... back to our story ...

Lenny was then grabbed by a woman nearby, who exclaimed:
“You don’t know who that is!”
She was speaking about the ALLEGED VIP at whom Lenny was shrieking; and so he replied:
“I don’t care—don’t tell me what to do.”
And just when it looked like Lenny and the VIP might schedule a duel with pistols at dawn, it was over ...  Lenny took his seat, then stormed out—perhaps to eat his chocolates in the lobby—only to return 15 minutes later to watch the show. And then, after the show, Lenny was seen with the French VIP hugging it out in the lobby and laughing.

Maybe Lenny’s blood sugar was low ... let him eat chocolate and, as Lenny taught us, Let Love Rule.

PR 16 Ep 7: Yassssssss! .... Noooooooooooooo ... Whaaaaaaat?

SPOILER ALERT ... this episode is :::ack!:::: “To be continued”; meaning we don’t know who’s Auf’d until next week though ... Spoilier[?] Alert ... I don’t care who’s Auf’d either way.

But let’s start at the very beginning, because I hear it’s a very good place to start ... the designtestants meet up in the JCPenney men’s section, where there are five rather lovely male models waiting; I hoping for male model’s in underwear trying on clothes, and Brandon is hoping for menswear because that his thang. Margarita is less than thrilled because male model’s have “junk” down there, and Kenya says what I was thinking:
“I want to touch them, but I don’t want to dress them.”
But this isn’t a menswear challenge —Brandon winces—but a womenswear look based on menswear and some JCP menswear fabrics. Each male model reveals the names of two designers who must use the fabrics chosen for them. Oh, and it’s a team challenge, made all the worse when Tim Gunn reaches for the Dreaded Button Bag™ and says each designer must work with someone who has different fabrics.

As last week’s winner Kentaro gets first pick and he instantly goes for his Brother, Brandon. I love that coupling. Amy chooses Kenya. Claire picks Batani ... I kid, she chose her sister because, yeah ... Batani and Margarita are a team, as are Ayana and Michael.

Tim explains that they must create two cohesive pieces, with the winning look reproduced by JCP. They have $100 for “notions”—Claire and Shawn clearly need a notion—and supplemental fabrics, and one day to get it done, so let’s rip ...
I didn’t get the dark, heavy bomber jacket on Michael’s billowy dress and I saw no reason for the dark pants underneath Ayana’s shirt dress.
The Brothers are a good match because they get along with one another—and I noticed last night, rarely are heard being negative about anyone else’s design—and seem to have similar aesthetics. Still, Brandon has to reign in Kentaro’s need to go too sexy with backless outfits, and Kentaro tries to keep Brandon from going too menswear.

They come up with a sportswear collection that really focuses on their strengths, though Tim—who, to the annoyance of the workroom, dubs them The Dream Team—worries about some of their fabric choice and if these looks, all separates, can work together.

In the end, Brandon and Kentaro do tone down the black, but stick to their aesthetics. Kentaro and Brandon are working on “futuristic sporty” with their country-style patterns.

Kentaro—It looks creative. Our looks are cohesive.
Brandon—We both know it’s the most cohesive.

It looks like a Brandon piece, without the straps, but then Brandon’s comes out, and there are the straps; I like his style, but he really needs to veer away from the crop top and the floating straps or else he’ll find himself out.

Heidi Klum loves both looks and the mix of fabrics.
Nina Garcia called it effortless, and loved that there were lots of choices, calling the pieces versatile and cool.
Zac Posen called then looks JCP Ready, casual, sophisticated and loved the oversized gingham print.
Guest judge, actress Asia Kate Dillon—from one of my favorite shows Billions—loved the cheekiness of the collection, with its hint at menswear.
And, as with team challenges, Heidi asks who should be the winner and, as cute as can be, Brandon and Kentaro won’t answer. I love this bromance!
Nina says it’s effortless and cohesive at the same time. Zac says it’s perfectly ready for JCP and the most cohesive collection. 

Heidi asks which person should win; they hem and haw and ultimately refuse to answer. Brothers for life!
Oh, you get the sense right away that this will go down in flames ... and I’m pleased by that; indeed. It begins when Shawn, for no reason I can fathom, tells Claire the looks are for fall. I never heard anyone mention fall looks but, Shawn ... I guess she knows best?

Or maybe not, because this week Claire’s facade of twin-love is starting to crack; there is a snappiness and a testiness as she realizes she has to help Shawn before she can work on her own looks. And Shawn’s neediness doesn’t help, given that, at one point, she actually says, “I feel like you are abandoning me.”

And Tim’s critique doesn’t help because he loathes their ideas, and is clearly bothered when Shawn tries to do all the talking, even stopping her at one point to say he’d like to hear from Claire. The twins again whine about working with plus-sized girls—even though it’s Week 7—and Tim shuts that shiz down.

Too bad he couldn’t just shut them both down.

Claire—I love that we made outfits that look nothing like anyone else’s on the runway.
Shawn—Liris is working this. She has a pop of color.

Um, Claire, yours look nothing like the others because the others are rather good; I mean, what kind of f**kery is this sleeve belt and frilly one-sleeved mess. As for you, Shawn, a red lip doesn’t constitute a pop of color, and how dare you put Liris in a potato sack—even though she rocked it; again, what kind of f**kery is this?

Zac Posen calls Shawn’s dress trashy, uninspired, and banal; and he says she was just lucky to have had Liris as a model. He calls Claire’s top “bad design” though the jeans, he says, are good, except for the “dumpy butt.” He wonders about the weird tie and Nina says it’s in case you need extra sleeves.
Asia Kate Dillon calls both looks confusing and says many pieces—like the sleeve belt—look like an afterthought.
Nina Garcia asks who would buy these clothes, and Claire tries to say that JCP customers would be inspired by influencers like them—Nina’s head nearly explodes.
Heidi has no idea what these two are doing, and says she’d be sad if she saw people in these clothes.

When she asks who should go Shawn volunteers, and Claire stammers.
Amy and Kenya set to work on a denim suit—with blue jean buttons—and a knit dress. They are working so well together; Amy likes Kenya’s aesthetic and Kenya likes that Amy is a professor and can teach her a thing or two.

Quickly, though, it goes downhill, possibly because Tim loves the top-stitching on the denim, but worries that Kenya’s dress looks matronly.

And so Kenya sets off to make something new, though there is no time, and Amy is getting annoyed; we see a lot of Amy shrugs and Kenya eye-rolls as the two fall apart.

Kenya—It looks good, it’s well made. I like it, but I don’t love it.
Amy—I hope the judges see the level of construction, quality and fit.

On Kenya’s look ... Miss Jones? Can you come in and take some dictation? And bring your steno pad. As for Amy, I’m seeing Kate Jackson wearing it during a 1976 episode of Charlie’s Angels.

Heidi calls the looks boring and not modern; they are not new and not special; she dubs Amy’s a “silly suit.”
Asia Kate Dillon goes for a mean Garcia impression with: “They look like flight attendant uniform rejections from the 1970s.”
Zac Posen liked the construction of Amy’s look, but called Kenya’s a snoozefest.
Nina Garcia hated the aging styling of the models and calls Amy’s look a costume—Why is she wearing this? She asks! She calls Kenya’s a look for a nun, which spurs Zac to say, “Sexy nun?” and Nina replies, “South American nun.”

When Heidi asks who should go home, Amy volunteers; Kenya stutters that she deserves to be there and refuses to say that means she wants Amy to go. That was kind of nasty, I thought.
These two really take the menswear idea to heart, with Batani making a wrap dress with a man’s blazer-inspired top, and Margarita creating an asymmetrical men’s shirt dress. But, since Batani has never done anything remotely menswear or tailored, she’s leaning a lot on Margarita and once again, I worry she won’t finish in time.

Tim’s critique helps, because he loves Batani’s idea and her fabric choices, though he has concerns that Margarita might not have time to do a placket and button holes for her shirt dress.

Batani—I’m excited about the color and how the dress is bouncing.
Margarita—It’s just effortless.

The color of Batani’s dress is beautiful, but I’ve seen that look before. Margarita’s, on the other hand, is cool, and her model Meisha is really working it; I mean, for being so covered up she looks hot.

Heidi loves both looks, but especially loves Margarita’s; she would run to JCP and buy it. She calls the mini-collection real world design.
Zac Posen loves the asymmetry of Margarita’s dress, calling it different, but good; he thinks Batani’s is cute, but also stellar.
Nina Garcia calls both pieces polished and sophisticated, saying Margarita’s is fabulous and Batani’s is more taste specific.
Asia Kate Dillon calls both looks “one and done”—just put them on and go; she does love the power of Margarita’s dress.

When asked who should win, Margarita clearly wants it, and Batani smiles.
I thought it was gonna go to the Dream Team, but this week, after nearly going home last week, Margarita gets the win. Yes, tis true ... one day you’re in, the next day you’re out ... or vice versa.

Then we learn that Amy and Kenya are safe and I freaked Carlos out by screaming Yasssssssss at the TV.

Heidi tells the twins that one of them will be out ... but not yet. What.Kind.Of.F**kery.Is.This?

Instead, the two of them will have an hour to re-do the challenge without help from the other and whomever has the best design will stay.

Claire says, “My success will result in my sister’s failing.”

Oh, she clearly knows who should have gone home when Heidi asked.

I was worried when Kentaro picked Brandon that it was a setup for them to be the losing team and with Kentaro having immunity Brandon would go; then I realized Tim Gunn had the Tim Gunn Save so my heart settled down a bit.

Claire talking to Michael in the sewing room was priceless, especially when he just wandered out and she kept talking and talking until she finally realized she was alone. Perhaps that’s a metaphor for what’s to come ... ?

Shawn asking Kentaro if she can copy the boot leggings he’d made a few weeks back is just another example of Shawn having no ideas of her own; it reeks of her look last week, which was just a recreation of a look her model-client already owned.

Tim Gunn, entering the workroom:
“What a quiet workroom. I like it. It means you’re—
Never speak for Tim; he’d never go for two syllables when four will suffice.

I also loved when Claire noted that Margarita spent so much time helping Batani that she might not finish her own look; there are none so blind ... yada yada yada.

And I was shocked when, while sitting backstage, Shawn and Claire actually believed their looks were good and should not have been in the bottom. Seriously. A belt of sleeves and a potato sack.

The Tents: Brandon, still, with Kentaro. Margarita has stepped up, while Kenya has fallen. Also-rans are Michael, Batani and Ayana, Amy, safe for weeks, fell to the bottom, and, hopefully, fingers crossed, one twin with be Auf’d next week and the other won’t be heading to The Tents.

Next week, The Conclusion ... and someone better go home or I’ll be suing the PR for my shattered television set because I threw a shoe at it!

What did YOU think?

I Didn't Say It ...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Emmy award-winning actress from Veep and Seinfeld, announcing that she has breast cancer:

 “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

Good for her, to shine a light of the plight of breast cancer victims in this country and the plight of folks wity no healthcare.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for one of my favorites.
Trevor Noah, Daily Show host, responding to former Congressman Joe Walsh’s claim that Stevie Wonder is just “another ungrateful black multi-millionaire” because he took a knee at a concert in New York:

“Ungrateful to whom? I’m fascinated by that concept. People always say that. Ungrateful to whom? This idea that black people should be grateful is some sneaky-ass racism. A white billionaire spends a year screaming that America is a disaster, and he’s “in touch with the country” but when a black man kneels quietly, he should be grateful for the successes that America has allowed him to have? You think black Americans are free from the worry of being shot by agents of the state [if they kneel during the anthem]? That’s the whole thing that they’re protesting in the first place!”

Yes, black people need to be more grateful to white folks because we’ve done so much for y’all. OIf course, this comes from Joe Walsh, one of the biggest lying asshatted f**kmonkey to ever sit in the Congress so, yeah, there’s that.
Megyn Kelly, to Russell Turner, a Will  Grace superfan, on the first day of her new Today Show segment:

“Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay! — because of Will?”

Yes, Megyn, and interestingly enough, I became a Hillbilly Millionaire who loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly ... Hills, that is, because I watched that show on TV. I also turned out to be a wacky redhead married to a Cuban bandleader because of TV ... okay, that one’s not so far off the mark.
Still, Megyn, thanks for taking a giant step backward you idiot. TV cannot make you gay, but, clearly, being a Fox news hack for a while can't make you an idiot.
Jim ParsonsBig Bang Theory actor, on what it felt like to be a gay man in a relationship for 15 years and to finally marry his partner, Todd—above left:

“I didn’t really think we cared about the act of it that much, to be honest with you. And that sounds cold in a way, but I finally thought … well, let’s have a party then for the celebration, and we’ll go ahead and legalize this thing. And I really thought it would kind of end at that ... but it was so much more meaningful in the moment to me than I predicted. And it’s been resonantly more meaningful to me afterward than I ever saw coming. I’d been an adult gay person for so long at a time when that wasn’t possible that life was ‘fine,’ you know what I mean? There is an underlying thing a little buzz of something. I keep reminding myself of it. I kind of forget, and then I’m like, ‘we’re a legal thing, just like mom and dad were.'”

That’s exactly how I felt when Carlos and I got married; I mean, I knew we didn’t need to do it, but we did it because we wanted everyone to know that we were a married couple, just like our parents, and had the same desires and hopes as anyone else.
John McCain, Arizona’s GOP Senator, on the differences between him and _____:

“He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the — is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.”

Well, when you’re a draft-dodging spoiled brat that’s all you know; and, sadly, that’s what the minority of us elected in 2016.
Steve Kerr, coach of the Golden State Warriors, in response to _____’s racist un-American rants:

“How about the irony of, ‘Free speech is fine if you’re a neo-Nazi chanting hate slogans, but free speech is not allowed to kneel in protest?' No matter how many times a football player says, ‘I honor our military, but I’m protesting police brutality and racial inequality,’ it doesn’t matter. Nationalists are saying, ‘You’re disrespecting our flag.’ Well, you know what else is disrespectful to our flag? Racism. And one’s way worse than the other.”

It’s not about a flag or a song or a knee; it’s about wanting to be recognized, to be equal, to be allowed to live, to be safe from being shot dead if you get stopped while driving.
It’s about being equal, and that’s one of our founding tenets so let’s all move toward that, m’kay?
Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs head coach, on the NFL Take A Knee flap:

Race is the elephant in the room and we all understand that. Unless it is talked about constantly, it’s not going to get better. ‘Oh, they’re talking about that again. They pulled the race card again. Why do we have to talk about that?’ Well, because it’s uncomfortable. There has to be an uncomfortable element in the discourse for anything to change, whether it’s the LGBT movement, or women’s suffrage, race, it doesn’t matter. People have to be made to feel uncomfortable, and especially white people, because we’re comfortable. We still have no clue what being born white means. And if you read some of the recent literature, you realize there really is no such thing as whiteness. We kind of made it up. That’s not my original thought, but it’s true. It’s hard to sit down and decide that, yes, it’s like you’re at the 50-meter mark in a 100-meter dash. You’ve got that kind of a lead, yes, because you were born white. You have advantage that are systemically, culturally, psychologically rare. And they’ve been built up and cemented for hundreds of years. But many people can’t look at it that way, because it’s too difficult. It can’t be something that’s on their plate on a daily basis. People want to hold their position, people want their status quo, people don’t want to give that up. Until it’s given up, it’s not going to be fixed.”

So sorry white people feel uncomfortable when a minority demands equality, or just the right not to die because of their skin color.
And not talking about it solves nothing.
Jimmy Kimmel, on the latest death of an Obamacare repeal:

 “Thank you Senator Collins, you know Maine needs affordable healthcare more than almost any state. You know the sewers up there are filled with child-eating clowns.”

Pennywise be damned!
