Slate: Home of Racist Trolls

2017_01-01-slate-tweet

Tweeter snark:

  • Obviously the country was ready, because they BOUGHT THE MUSIC. Enough with the #fakenews racial division.
  • Apparently, Slate thinks Americans only started buying music made by black women in 2016.
  • Dear infants: Understand that history did not begin the day you were born.
  • Slate: Google The Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Etta James, Tina Turner, Marion Anderson, Diana Ross, Ertha Kitt, Leontyne Price, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Roberta Flack, Janet Jackson, Salt n Pepa, Toni B, The Pointer Sisters, Sade.
  • Black women have kicked ass and been music leaders for a long time.
  • This level of race baiting bargle can only be written by someone who has never figured out how to use an interwebs search engine.
  • Slate: Journalism for the Idiocracy.

      Disco was in when dh and I were dating. We never did it, cuz the poor white man hasn’t got an ounce of rhythm. But he did learn a whole lot about electricity assisting in the wiring of a disco in Cornell’s Collegetown area. We’ve saved a bundle cuz he has been able to do all our electrical work on the house. One of my fave things is hard wired wall lights in every room with switches beside the door, where I can find them in the dark. We’d never have been able to afford someone to come in and install them.

      Speaking of hubby, I’m just feeling really extra warm and fuzzy about my man today. I had a fasting (no food OR beverages all night) lab appt today. He refused to eat breakfast because I couldn’t. Then he took me out for a breakfast date after. We enjoyed these lovely, flaky, almond pastries. Yummm.
