Khloe! Blame Your Man, Sis.

During Jordyn Woods’ soul-bearing conversation with Jada Pinkett-Smith at the Red Table™, the duo discussed the lack of compassion she’s received during this ordeal. After news media and gossip blogs ran with the story that Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloe Kardashian with Jordyn, the former friend to the Kardashian-Jenner family has been bombarded with threats and insults. Commenting on the sheer lack of care for her pseudo-niece, Jada says “Black women are not given the benefit of the doubt.” I wholeheartedly agree.

Ugly Business

Social media has made engaging with the world more accessible but has done nothing to eradicate the cult of negativity. Now, more than ever, it seems people are all too happy to cut someone down. Jada addresses this at the beginning of her talk with Jordyn by asking those without the aptitude for empathy to leave. We’re aware the world is tuning in to hear Jordyn’s truth, but it is still falling on judgmental ears. Predilection aside, I listened to Jordyn and heard a 21-year-old woman still finding herself and navigating adulthood.

This situation, for her, is a very painful wake-up call. While most of us can agree she needed to clean up her circle, this is still a heartbreaking change for Jordyn. With millions of other people who have been burned by unfaithful partners, I stand alongside Khloe — but she and I are drastically different. I am not a 34 year-old-woman still blaming my partner’s lechery on an extra party, Khloe is.

You Lose Them How You Get Them

Tristan Thompson was notorious for being an unfaithful man. Leaving Jordan Craig in the third trimester of her pregnancy, Tristan began a romantic relationship with Khloe. When Khloe reached her third trimester, Tristan cheated with Lani Blair, earning himself the nickname Tristan “Third Trimester” Thompson. He’s on the outs with Khloe Kardashian right now, but guess who has yet to cut him out of her life? Khloe. She, along with her clutch of siblings, has unfriended/unfollowed/forgotten Jordyn Woods on every social media platform possible. However, Khloe remains invested in Tristan Thompson, not just because they have a daughter (which she heavily filters on Instagram), because she wants more children with him. Imagine being 34-years-old, hanging on to 238lbs of dead weight. Don’t be like Khloe.

Khloe’s inability to place blame or hold Tristan accountable for her actions is on brand for her and her family. Having allegedly borrowed designs and outright stolen culture from Black women, it is not a surprise at all that Khloe is throwing rocks from a glass house. Remember when Khloe was dating French Montana…who was dating and living with Trina at the time? There’s a very obvious reason why Khloe is unwilling and unable to call Tristan out for his foolish. It’s because she’d have to call herself out too. Let’s call a thing a thing, people.

Caucasian Christian Colonizer Cole LaBrant Catching Criticism for Using Adopted Child as Ottoman for Privileged Daughter

Published

In today’s segment of Typical White Nonsense, we return to none other than Alabama for the latest act of insensitivity. YouTuber Cole LaBrant uploaded a controversial video of his adopted cousin, a Black boy nicknamed Peanut, being used as a footstool to lift his daughters up to the swings. Although the video has been deleted, it was captured by the entirety of Black Twitter, who assembled to quickly mete out justice.

Having recently trended because of the poor decision to pass one of the nation’s strictest abortion bills, Alabamians have another reason to hide their faces in shame. Youtuber Cole LaBrant, who runs a family channel with his wife and children, shared a video of his Black adopted cousin being used a footstool to his Twitter account. Expecting the video to be received as a warm gesture, Cole quickly realized that a Black boy being pressed into the dirt by the heel of two white girls isn’t exactly the visual we need in 2019.

Although Cole has been racing to clean up his mess, evidence of the misdeed has already made international waves. Catching the immediate ire of Black Twitter, the culture has already rallied and uncovered disgusting liked tweets. An outspoken Christian, Cole has apparently taken “make your enemies a footstool” quite literally as he celebrated the behavior of”Peanut”. Despite there being multiple able-bodied adults in the vicinity, that poor child is the one to “aid” his cousins, who in my opinion didn’t even need his help.

Along with drawing comparisons to behaviors exhibited during slavery, Cole’s actions have prompted a discussion for the argument against transracial adoption. When Black babies end up in white homes, are deprived of the knowledge of their cultural history, and are subjected to treatment like that, it’s the perfect storm for birthing an Uncle Ruckus. They endure psychological abuses and internalize hatred for all that so many of us hold dear. They develop disdain for the elements of Black culture they missed and eventually grow to use the language of the oppressor to justify their prejudices and distance themselves from the community. The fear of “Peanut” facing such a fate has spawned calls for his removal from a potentially dangerous environment.

Has Black Twitter gotten CPS on the line yet?

Kim Kardashian’s Kredit Belongs to Black Female Attorneys, Activists

Behind every Kardashian is a Black woman who truly did the work! Yesterday, we reported that Kim Kardashian would be featured in a two-hour documentary chronicling her justice crusade. Now, an attorney and criminal reform advocate a part of the team that REALLY led the efforts has spoken up.

Kim Kardashian arrived at the table when dessert was being served and was given credit for the full meal! The true team of people who put the work in to secure the freedom of Alice Marie Johnson along with the other 16 life sentences, is made predominantly of black women and men.

Fed up with the misinformation people have been spreading on social media, Texas attorney and activist Brittany K. Barnett decided to clear the air. Through two organizations called The Decarceration Collective and the Buried Alive Project, Brittany and her partner, MiAngel Cody, were the driving forces behind the success Kim Kardashian has claimed. Commenting on the silent struggles she has faced, Barnett says she is “coming out of the shadows” and is no longer shying away from their magic in all of its melanin glory.

As a co-founder of Buried Alive, Brittany K. Barnett has been invested in the pro bono presentation of federal prison inmates. Changing the lives of nonviolent drug offenders, Brittany has worked to secure the freedom of countless victims of the American justice system. Having experienced firsthand the atrocities mass incarceration inflicts upon families, Brittany has worked tirelessly to free her clients, 37 in total. So when it comes to what exactly Kim Kardashian provided, in short, it was “support”.

The use of Kim’s platform was integral in securing funding and spreading the word but the work was done by those behind the non-profits. While Brittany does not harbor any ill-will toward Kim, she is conflicted by reports that Kim led the way. Expressing her frustration, Brittany stated:

Kim has always been very clear in her role. It’s the media that spins it around — not Kim. We do not care how the media is portraying it — that’s what the media does. Who cares. We need Kim’s support and the support of anyone else who wants to join this fight. We love that she is using her platform to raise awareness. We ain’t trying to be famous, we trying to get our people free. Period.”

 

Brittany credits Kim for “linking arms” with them in support when other foundations declined requests for funds. However, TWO black women lawyers are responsible for the 90-day effort to release 17 incarcerated individuals.
