84. How about Sarandon?

Buy enough Loreal products from her and the revolution will be televised?

What message do you think Beyonce is sending about political activism? Is it because she donates to caucuses and protesters without their knowledge rather than their inserting herself in the middle of protests for her own publicity? Is it because she doesn't talk to a Civil Rights and union LEGEND like Dolores Huerta as the help, repeating a truly idiotic recitation of immigration policy, as though it was the first Huerta had ever thought about the issue? Is that where Beyonce falls short? Or is it that you don't like that Beyonce supports Democrats?


Beyonce didn't say people can be empowered by buying $90 million dollar mansions. That's your reaction--your anger-- to the fact she bought an expensive home. Yet not a word about Sarandon. I wonder why? I wonder why enormous hands in the wealth of some generates no criticism and is even defended, while you can't even think about the point of this thread without pronouncing why you don't like her.

Yeah, it sucks that a black woman has more than you. There are the demographic with the lowest average incomes of anyone in the nation, about 1/10 of the average white man. But Beyonce is rich. The world has been turned upside down. And all around we hear demands to right the social order back to its proper balance, back to the 1950s when white men didn't have to suffer the indignity of knowing no even one black woman anywhere had more than they did.

This is one of the many reasons why I believe exactly none of the rhetoric about "equality."
