So did y’all feel like this when you were begging for money on Kickstarter?
TLC, I’m going to need you to drop the L. No need to drag Left Eye’s legacy down with you. While on their recent tour to promote their upcoming album, T-Boz and Chili did an interview with Channel 4 News in the UK. They were asked about the current political climate here in the US, specifically Donald Trump and Black Lives Matter.
Chili’s response: “For me all lives matter. You know what I mean? Because…there’s a time when different are targeted for different things“.
Come again? Regarding Donald Trump, T-Boz took the lead on that:
“I don’t care about Donald Trump, so, I mean, God is my president. I just feel sorry for the people it affects, but I don’t care about him”.
I don’t even know where to start.
First, Chili. Ma’am, you have a son. A black son. How do you not get it? They are fighting for young men just like him! Yes, other groups have been subjected to discrimination. However, they are not shot, murdered, and incarcerated at the disproportional rates affecting African Americans. Not to mention that we are suffering from 400 years of oppression in this country, can other groups say the same? You, like so many others, don’t understand the message behind Black Lives Matter.
On to you T-Boz. You are an American citizen. Trump is the President of the United States of America. How do you think that you won’t be affected by that? As someone who suffers from Sickle-Cell Anemia and required extensive treatment, you are one of the first people who should understand how his presidency affects us all. Almost 20 million citizens will lose coverage if the current healthcare bill is allowed to pass. Are you that obtuse to think that it won’t affect you too? Nah, because you’ll just start another Kickstarter or Go Fund Me page to get your medical costs paid.
The moral of this story is, stick to what you know. You can’t control the questions asked, but you can control whether you answer them. Now I understand how you all got conned into those horrible contracts with Pebbles.
How do you feel about T&C (yeah I’m changing it) and their interesting comments?

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.
As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences.
The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
