Bio not provided
I don't know if anyone remembers the name of that movie with Samuel L. Jackson, terrorizing his BW/WM neighbours. I don't know the name of the film, as I never watched it. That was appalling to me, that such a film could get made.
THIS is not appalling, more like expected. I was just about to ask, oh, is Arsenio Hall still alive? Clearly a ploy to get his head/show above water.

@onmywayupThe very fact that we give this sketch attention kinda slows his fall into mediocrity a tad.

@Christelyn @Law WanxiMe too. And it's true about the hiring.

Her hair is amazing! Are they saying this is too much amazingness for one head?

I don't really see where Kola Boof is saying anything that is not true. All true. Sometimes it takes someone from outside a community to provide an objective (or close to objective as humanly possible) comment.
What astounds me is how she keeps having to say the same thing again and again, but so many just aren't hearing what she is saying. Or maybe they aren't ready to hear.
It is beside the point how she lives her life, and whom she marries. It doesn't negate her message that we as black people have to heal after colonialism and slavery. It frankly just shows her own good sense.
What scares me is how that letter writer takes Kola Boof's life so personally - as a personal affront. Um, dude, you don't know Kola Boof personally, so why do you need to forgive her any of her actions or how she wears her hair, when none of it is has anything to do with you?
Ms. Boof, I hope you've already looked into some good security, because that is not normal.

New shoes, all I can say is "Go with God."
And 100% cosign on pricing yourself out of the drama. This. You're on the front lines, but take care of yourselves. Don't put yourselves in danger, and follow your gut.
Chris wrote about this a few years ago(?). If you had a gut feeling that something was going to happen, then you could've asked the manager for a few staff members to escort you to your car. Never ignore your gut feelings in potentially dangerous situations.

@WorldTravelingChic If his black friends were around, they'd have told him 'Pirates of the Caribbean' producers called and want their audition coostume back.

I'd rather be a sandwich-maker. Feminists just don't know what they want. I'm sorry that she caved and tried to joke it off. Her sandwiches are amazing, too.

I'm glad this topic is getting attention in a mainstream mg like Newsweek. "Rarer than pearls in a beauteous ladies's eyes." Yeah. That Shakespeare. LOL.
But Samuel Jackson. Sending his daughter to Spelman so she could find see having a black boyfriend as an option... Huh. I truly hope that wasn't the main reason for college choice....

I don't read anything sexual in all that. Which older guy would I go shopping with and joke around with, let sleep over, back when I was 27? My Dad.
The fact that she can let you sleep in her apartment and then in her bed, means she feels safe with you. After listening to Chris' comment: Right on. Agree wholeheartedly.

I used to watch "Martin" when I was a kid, til I realized that it was basically one man's fantasy of how women are or should be. Your choice was either to be a Gina or a Shenaynay... So the laughter eventually stuck in my throat.

Hmm. Sounds great. About those measurements... Up in scandinavia, they use metric ... And seem to be very fond of dL (deciliter). So they need a conversion page in that cookbook or it's gonna be a pain.

@Jamila @Aabaakawad @DWB @Karnythia I'm not sure there were any clear goals - as Karnythia related, this was born out of a moment of frustration.
If you see any actual dialogue from the other side, apart from a) stop being so mean and b) I get discriminated too, and I'm white (and variations thereof), do let me know...

Well, no, they weren't silent. They were busy defending the insulter's freedom of speech. Just SMH.

Reminds me of what notyourgirlfriday has been writing, on intersectionality and in underlining the disconnect in feminism (as practised by WW) and BW's concerns. This is a clear example of this. Nothing new.
When that sweet child was called out of her name at the Academy Awards, the silence of white feminists protesting, spoke volumes. All manifestations of this same problem.

@JayJay101 @Jamila @Brenda55 You've made some very interesting points JayJay101. However, while you may like debating, marriage as a general concept (rather than a specific case, like that of your parents) isn't up for debate here. It is considered the pinnacle of commitment, though not everyone may want to climb that mountain.
I appreciate your sharing your thought process and do genuinely feel for you at this difficult time.
I truly cannot imagine what you are going through, because I have not experienced divorce. I can only pray that you find a supportive outlet/forum. I am not sure that BBW is it right now.

@Criticalthinker What she needs to look into is Registered partnership. Roughly the same protections as married couples. Because, as you say, if things go belly up, she may find, that his assets are tied up in his business and she ends up unable to recoup what she put into that 'pot'.
Plus it should be fairly telling, for her, if her boyfriend refuses to get their partnership registered.
