Family, can I talk to you?

Warning: The post you are about to read is a rant. Mildly offensive language may follow. Viewer discretion is advised.

I just need to rant for a minute but.....
What the hell is going on? Where do they keep finding all these "skin folks" pretending to be my kin? Is there a factory that manufactures these "pod" people?
You're probably saying, "what are you talking about"?
Oh, but You know. You may have seen them on CNN from time to time. If you're particularly brave (or just into brain numbing) you may have seen them on Fox. Still not sure? Here are some examples:

Candace Owens

Sheriff David Clark

"Pastor" Scott

Paris Dennard

And I've just watched another one on Fox and Friends. Smh. I'm turning back to the Rev on msnbc. All this buck dancing is making my head hurt.

I was wondering this just yesterday while cutting the grass. How can I, a white dude, see the blatant racism of this asshole but these black folks on the tv can't? Mind boggling. Maybe you're onto something with the pod people reference.

Parris Dennard is a regular on an NPR afternoon show. I hear his name, I leap to turn off the radio
He truly annoys me.

It boggles my mind. I usually try to see other people's perspective. I just can't seem to wrap my head around it at all. What are they trying to do, exactly? What praise do they think they're going to get? Maybe it's arrogance.....you know? They're really enlightened and the rest of us are just uninformed. "EVERYBODY else is wrong and the 8 of us are correct." Okay...

You kinda blew my mind, there. Dolt 45's support isn't 3%, it's literally 3 people!

That's okay, I'm going to be fully caffeinated in a minute. Hopefully, I'll recover. Cheers, Anon-C!

the rest? "Massa, Massa that ungrateful ....................ran thissa way". That's what I think about these type people of colour. Self-hating grifters, looking for a pat on the back, paycheck. Sad really. But not unexpected from other human beings of colour. Always been among us shameless, wounded and omarosa material pre-kicked out the WH on her ass.
