Barbados civil unions referendum could see LGBT+ people killed 

 

The announcements this week came in a formal speech for the State Opening of Parliament in Barbados. The speech is the mechanism by which the government sets out its agenda.

The Queen’s representative, Governor General Dame Sandra Mason gave the speech. However, it is the government that writes it.

In it, Prime Minister Mia Mottley promised wide-ranging changes in Barbados. And she made headlines around the world by announcing the country will drop Queen Elizabeth as its head of state.

But hidden in it was an indication Barbados will drop another vestige of its colonial legacy – its ‘sodomy’ law.

The country rarely enforces the law against gay sex. But it is technically one of the most punitive in the world with a maximum sentence of life in imprisonment. Scrapping it will almost certainly be a pre-requisite for recognizing same-sex relationships.

‘Cuties’ Financier Argues ‘Ultra-Conservatism’ Is Threatening ‘Freedom of Expression’ (EXCLUSIVE)

 

Netflix’s “Cuties” may be receiving a torrent of backlash out of North America, but France’s film industry is standing in support of Maimouna Doucouré’s feature debut. On Tuesday, the country’s authors, directors and producers guild, La Société civile des Auteurs Réalisateurs et Producteurs, known as ARP, said calls for the film’s boycott are a “grave attack on freedom of creation” carried on by the “most conservative of Americans.”

A campaign waged against Netflix over “Cuties” and the film’s sexualized portrayal of children produced a surge in U.S. subscription cancellations over the weekend, according to research company YipitData, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations out of Washington, D.C., is the latest org to call on the streaming giant to pull the film due to, it claims, a stereotypical portrayal of Muslims.

In France, the film was released on Aug. 19 without any restrictions and was considered suitable for all audiences. It triggered some debate, but not any backlash. We received unanimous praise in the local press, from L’Humanité to Le Figaro, Telerama and Le Monde. We want people to watch the film and realize it’s about many issues: It’s about being Black and living in France, in a society dominated by white people; it’s about being a woman; it’s about the identity conflict that a child can feel between a traditional, conservative upbringing and everyday life at school. Twerking is a small part of the movie. (The film is rated TV MA — Mature Audiences by Netflix in the U.S.).

Henry Golding Explains Why He's Playing Gay in 'Monsoon' 

 

Henry Golding had a head-turning starring role in the blockbuster hit Crazy Rich Asians. Since, he's been reaping the rewards, knocking one project after the other out of the park. But this fall Monsoon, his latest project, releases and he's playing Kit, a Vietnamese man who returns to his home country after fleeing as a child. But Kit is gay.

"From my point of view, with this particular role, it was the fact that his journey wasn’t hinged on the fact he is gay,” the straight actor told Attitude in a new cover story. "It's almost like, yes, he's a young gay man. but the bigger issue is who he is as a person".

Golding falls within a long line of straight actors taking on gay roles — often the most prominent and most lauded gay rols are taken by straight actors. Over the past decade, this has drawn increased scrutiny with both audiences and gay actors. Many have spoken about how their careers are impacted after coming out.

"What’s happened is that, when someone comes out of the closet, we celebrate them," Billy Eichner told Deadline in a recent, unrelated interview. "We applaud them. We put them on the cover of magazines. We say, thank you for living your truth, and thank you for being brave, and you’re such a role model for our gay kids. And then instantly, that actor gets taken off so many casting lists in the business." The casting lists they do stay on, for the most part, are those for gay roles or projects that want queer appeal. One argument is that if queer actors are only going to be considered for queer roles, they should be the only ones considered there.

John Muir Is Canceled. Who’s Next? 

 

The cancel culture has now reached into every nook and cranny of life. Eskimo Pie, the chocolate-covered ice-cream treat that has been around for a century, will be renamed after critics said the name was insensitive. What’s next?

We have a partial answer. Last week, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

The Sierra Club is “celebrating” the event in an unusual way. It is dumping any association with John Muir, the “father of the national parks” who founded the Sierra Club back in 1892.

Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director, tells members that “it’s time to take down some of our own monuments.” Brune says members must now “reexamine our past and our substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy.”

In an interview with the California Sun, Donald Worster, a professor and noted biographer of Muir, says the attack on Muir is completely devoid of context:

He saw the effects of white immigration and the diseases that came along, wiping out whole populations; the presence of alcohol and its effect; trade relations that were not good for the Indians. He wrote a diatribe against the white invasion. He said this is something the government should be up here doing: taking care of and protecting these people from being exploited, from being hurt and dying from all this. . . . It wasn’t just the Indians who got him saying unflattering things. The white population, the people who were invading — the frontier types, the miners — he thought they were uncouth, savage, brutal, dirty, given over to alcohol. His writings are full of those descriptions. Nobody gets upset about that.

Adele is hit by claims of 'cultural appropriation' after showing off her seven stone weight loss in a Jamaican-flag string bikini top and bantu knots in her hair to mark cancelled Notting Hill Carnival 

 

Adele has been slammed for cultural appropriation after donning a Jamaican flag string bikini top to mark the cancelled Notting Hill Carnival.

In a picture shared to her Instagram, the songstress, posing in the garden of her $9.5million Beverly Hills home, wore her hair in Bantu knots leading some to slam the choice as 'insensitive'.

The hairstyle - small, coiled buns secured against the side of the head - is associated with people of African descent.

'She grew up in black culture, she's from Tottenham': Adele is defended by Naomi Campbell, Alexandra Burke and MP David Lammy after being accused of 'cultural appropriation' for wearing a Jamaican-flag bikini and bantu knots

I think a person's hair should be free to twirl and knot whichever way it pleases. No one owns shit. It belongs to God. If the Bieberette and Auntie Em can be considered black so can Adele. 31-Aug-2020

Radio broadcaster, 26, is fired for referring to Senator Kamala Harris as America's 'first colored vice presidential candidate' 

 

A radio station in Ohio has fired a broadcaster who described Senator Kamala Harris as the nation's 'first colored vice presidential candidate'.

Kyle Cornell, 26, made the remark on air on Wednesday night.

He was fired by WTAM 1100, a Cleveland-based station, on Thursday, after a social media backlash.

Cornell has apologized for 'making a judgement in error', and said he never intended to cause offense.

People Are Trying to Cancel a Sundance-Winning French Film They Know Nothing About 

 

On Aug. 20, Netflix issued an apology following a wave of backlash for its marketing materials promoting Maïmouna Doucouré's Cuties. The poster featured the French film's main characters — the titular dance troupe named Cuties — in spandex dance costumes of shorts and crop tops. The streamer's now-deleted movie description read that lead character Amy "becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew," and in an attempt to join them, she "starts to explore her femininity, defying her family's traditions."

An uproar was immediately ignited over the poster's apparent sexualization of children, and the backlash equated Netflix's marketing with the film's intent. "We're deeply sorry for the inappropriate artwork that we used for Mignonnes/Cuties," a Netflix spokesperson said in the statement on Thursday. "It was not OK, nor was it representative of this French film which won an award at Sundance. We've now updated the pictures and description."

The damage, however, was already done. Along with accusations that Netflix was run by pedophiles, petitions went up demanding the streamer remove the film from its lineup. I should note that Cuties won't premiere in the United States until Sept. 9, so the masses currently protesting the film's release haven't actually seen it. But that hasn't stopped over 178,000 people from signing the petition or another petition with the same purpose from gaining over 336,000 signatures.

HBO Max puts a trigger warning on Western spoof Blazing Saddles and advises viewers of the 'racist language and attitudes' in the 1974 classic 

 

HBO Max have begun showing a warning before the classic Western spoof Blazing Saddles, alerting viewers to the 1974 film's 'racist language and attitudes' throughout.

'This movie is an overt and audacious spoof on classic Westerns,' Stewart says in the newly added intro.

'It's as provocative today as it was when it premiered back in 1974.'

Richard Pryor initially was up for Little's role, but was turned down for his controversial stand-up material. The comedian, however, stayed on board and contributed to the writing.

The situation is similar to that of Gone With The Wind, which was pulled from HBO Max not long after the streaming service was introduced, due to outcry over its outdated and racist story and themes.

A Black Marxist Scholar Wanted to Talk About Race. It Ignited a Fury. 

 

Adolph Reed is a son of the segregated South, a native of New Orleans who organized poor Black people and antiwar soldiers in the late 1960s and became a leading Socialist scholar at a trio of top universities.

Along the way, he acquired the conviction, controversial today, that the left is too focused on race and not enough on class. Lasting victories were achieved, he believed, when working class and poor people of all races fought shoulder to shoulder for their rights.

“Adolph Reed and his ilk believe that if we talk about race too much we will alienate too many, and that will keep us from building a movement,” said Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, a Princeton professor of African-American studies and a D.S.A. member. “We don’t want that — we want to win white people to an understanding of how their racism has fundamentally distorted the lives of Black people.”

A contrary view is offered by Professor Reed and some prominent scholars and activists, many of whom are Black. They see the current emphasis in the culture on race-based politics as a dead-end. They include Dr. West; the historians Barbara Fields of Columbia University and Toure Reed — Adolph’s son — of Illinois State; and Bhaskar Sunkara, founder of Jacobin, a Socialist magazine.

“An obsession with disparities of race has colonized the thinking of left and liberal types,” Professor Reed told me. “There’s this insistence that race and racism are fundamental determinants of all Black people’s existence.”

Rita Ora has been accused of 'blackfishing' by Twitter users who discovered her Albanian roots in a social media storm on Monday.

Despite the Hot Right Now hitmaker, 29, frequently discussing her Albanian heritage, her family's escape from the war-torn area and life as a refugee in London, enraged critics still lashed out at the star for her alleged 'cultural appropriation'.

The tweet that sparked the entire debate garnered a huge 109.4k likes in just two days, with the fuming message accompanied with images of Rita donning 'appropriating' hairstyles such as box braids and an afro.

The comedy film Kindergarten Cop has been pulled from a film festival after protesters claimed it glorifies police traumatizing children and compared it to the explicitly racist 1915 silent movie Birth Of A Nation.

Organizers of the NW Film Center in Portland, Oregon announced this week that the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy would be pulled from the lineup and replaced with a documentary celebrating late Rep. John Lewis.

Showtime fires Paulie Malignaggi over controversial remarks on racism, racial oppression 

 

Showtime Boxing returns tonight (August 1st) from Uncasville, CT with a vacant WBO bantamweight title between Tramaine Williams and Angelo Leo as the main event, but the broadcast will not feature Paulie Malignaggi’s analysis. In fact, Showtime has axed Malignaggi altogether.

Boxing Scene first reported that the retired former world champion was removed from Showtime Boxing broadcasts for comments he made back in April in an IFL TV interview that he apparently refused to apologize for. When the apology wasn’t issued, Showtime gave Malignaggi the boot. Abner Mares will take his place at least for tonight’s broadcast.

Now we get to Paulie. He directly addressed Haney’s comments by saying that through boxing history, the sport has been dominated by different racial/ethnic groups, and he claims that African-American fighters are no longer the dominant force in boxing like they were in the 30-50 years ago.

Why Hispanic business owners are urging you to BUY-cott Goya products 

 

The Goya Foods boycott is an insult to Hispanics, America’s largest minority group. Politicians and pundits — some Hispanic, many others painfully woke-white — are calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic food manufacturer and distributor in the nation, a company that employs more than 4,000 people.

The Bodega and Small Business Association, which represents thousands of New York City bodegas, is not taking this lying down. We are urging our stores and customers to stock up on all of Goya’s great products.

We are calling for a Goya buycott.

A White Couple Was Caught on Video Pointing Guns at Black Lives Matter Protesters in St. Louis 

 

An armed white couple waved their guns and yelled at Black Lives Matter demonstrators in St. Louis on Sunday, during a protest march to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson’s home.

At least 500 people peacefully marched through St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood on Sunday demanding Krewson’s resignation, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Krewson appeared in a Facebook Live video last week reading the names and addresses of people who had called for defunding the city’s police department.

‘Golden Girls’ blackface episode removed from Hulu 

 

Not even “The Golden Girls” are immune to blackface backlash.

“Mixed Blessings,” a 1988 episode of the beloved comedy series, has been yanked off the content-streaming platform Hulu for its depiction of two white characters sporting darkened faces, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The episode features Michael (Scott Jacoby), the son of Bea Arthur’s Dorothy character, planning to wed African-American fiancée Lorraine (Rosalind Cash), who’s twice his age.

While Dorothy is anxious over the extreme age difference, Lorraine’s family disapproves of her marrying a white man. The two families then scheme to sabotage the couple’s engagement.
