    When the revival was launched, it was a major move due to the diverse cast and writing team in front and behind the scenes, from Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf to Wanda Sykes. I worried that there was going to be one incendiary motion from Barr that not just could sink everything but put a group of people trying to build this series out of jobs.

    Sadly, we finally hit it.

  • Still think she’s just being iconoclastic?

    The hypocrites are out in force, claiming ABC was just looking for an excuse to cancel its surprise hit of the season. The star of a primetime TV show said something ignorant and racist and the only defense she and her supporters can throw up is, "It's just a joke." Can you imagine what these people said when the Nazis marched in Charlottesville? Or when they see videos of white people telling Asians to go back to China or screaming at Hispanics to stop speaking Spanish? Are they just joking, too

Trump has let the worst part of America out; a last gasp, too little, too late. White America better get used to one thing in the future, we're all Americans and they no longer get to decide the pecking order.
