  1. Yeah that was my thought too
  2. Since most of us are probably familiar with Zoom now, how about a Jan fam Zoom catch up? I think a lot of us know each other from Facebook and Insta so can't imagine it'd be too awkward What do you all think?
  3. I'm glad. You need to take time out for yourself. It seems like Chadwick Boseman hit a lot of you guys hard. I can't lie, I didn't know much about him - I DID see Get On Up, which was brilliant, but not Black Panther yet because it's a comic book movie and I was never a fan of those. I'm gonna take time to check it out though, it seems like he touched a lot of people. And he was my age, and he had colon cancer, and my eldest brother had his diseased colon removed a few years ago, and it all just made me stop short. With Jacob Blake, something in me deflated. It opened my eyes a
  4. How was your stint on Drag Race?
  5. I saw Parasite at the cinema - what did you think of it? (obviously a lot because you gave it an A )
  6. SMG was my girl crush or possibly Buffy was? I've also finished watching RuPaul's Drag Race season 12 (terrible finale - why didn't he wait to film it properly? Always chasing the skrilla All Stars 5 was good
  7. I'm rewatching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Prime. I haven't seen it for over 10 years - it still makes me cry. The storylines in the earlier series were brilliant.
  8. I loved Chewing Gum. So funny. I haven't watched I May Destroy You yet.
  9. And that’s why I can’t even wrap my head around how exhausted you all must feel. To have that mental checklist running through at every second. I’ve heard many black people say they know how this movie ends, but I will still pray to the God who is more powerful than any of these oppressive systems, that THIS time might be different.
  10. You know what - it helps too to hear you say that. As much as I want to (and am) stand up for people of colour right now, it is a bit of a minefield because like many white people I don't want to offend. But it helps to have read things like being told that it's better to say something and get it wrong than to not say anything at all. It's really encouraging to me that things are actually happening, like Chauvin's charge being increased and the other three officers arrested and charged, but at the same time I'm aware that white people need to be watched at this point, that we don't rest on
  11. Thanks Bailey. My eyes are being opened to the people I know too, not saying anything... you know how you can see who views your stories on IG and FB, well it’s always the same people on mine and 98% of them are still silent. I’m trying not to judge because they may have reasons - but it’s illuminating. There’s loads of big brand companies speaking out, but do their ‘insides’ match their ‘outsides’ or are they just doing it to be ‘seen’? But I also hear you that maybe some are just listening for now - the problem is that while they’re listening POC are dying. Jessie J’s stories are very t

    Paul

    I love ya’ll too, I’ve been talking to you in some form or another since I think 2005 when I first started living on my own. I don’t post here much anymore but I do see many of your stories and posts on FB, Insta and Twitter. Even though you don’t look at mine
  13. I have no power like that Angie probably can.

    Paul

    It’s nuts that we didn’t know - but then how would the fam know to contact us... Paul was such a great guy when I met him with Bu, he was funny and that squirrel whispering thing was crazy lol. There’s been a lot of people disappeared off this forum. I think about Henry quite often.
  15. So I’m on Twitter arguing against Trump calling the Minneapolis rioters ‘thugs’ - I’m getting a lot of likes but also some people keep posting this - Obama calls Baltimore rioters ‘criminals and thugs’ . Currently I have no answer for this because I didn’t know about it prior - but I want to be educated. Did he actually say that and what do you think about it? I’ve known most of you for years, and you me - so I trust you and your opinions. I’m trying to use my privilege to speak up for people of colour but I still need educating.
