White people have duties as part of the American community. They must be honest with themselves and their co-citizens and admit that white privilege shapes a lot of life in this country. They must understand that the truly pernicious, life-defining sort of racism is not interpersonal, it’s institutional. The systems that shape who lives where, who gets educated, who gets jobs, who gets arrested, and so on, these things shape lives, and they are all heavily weighted in white people’s favor. To ignore all of that is to misunderstand America. If white people admit those things, it will be plain that they are not, in any way, victims.

Megyn Kelly, white privilege Barbie, has a new morning show on NBC. Those fools over there chose her over Tamron Hall, so you know I already wasn’t wishing the show well. Add to the fact that Megyn ain’t got the good sense God gave a goat and what you have is a “get busy, karma” holiday party.
Jane Fonda got a new movie she’s starring with Robert Redford, called Our Souls at Night so she decided to grace Megyn with her presence. Sometimes, you gotta do lessers massive favors like this.
Captain Picard, Will Riker, the Enterprise-D and all the rest of it (but not Ten Forward — that wouldn’t come until a year later!) first hit our not so big, and definitely not flat screen TVs 30 years ago today. On September 28, 1987, “Encounter at Farpoint,” the premiere episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, aired — and what a long, strange (and occasionally cheesy) trip it’s been.
As you can tell, it’s Saturday morning and I have a ton of stuff to catch up on because I’ve not had a lot of reading time in the last 2-3 days. And a good chunk of the stuff I’ve backlogged is fun stuff, which seems fitting for a Saturday. Normal service will resume later today, I expect.
Director Ron Howard has tweeted a lot of intriguing and cool photos from the set of the untitled Han Solo movie, but his latest either confirms a long standing fan theory or pokes fun at it. You decide.
As usual, Rusty is either deaf or in denial–or perhaps, in this case, just not a woman on the internet. No real surprise in any case.
The former series showrunner says the majority of fans are in favour of the first female Doctor
I’ve been rewatching TNG, which makes this trailer especially hilarious. (Not sure if the video will work directly from here or not.)
The series that gave us some incredible performances, the Borg, and that one time when they met Mark Twain.
