    My headlines I’m seeing “stick” are complaints about Usher’s halftime show and Andra Day singing Lift Every Voice and Sing.

    But yeah, I see Taylor Swift stuff if I specifically search for it. But the anti-Black Artist thing seems to be the thing sticking. I dunno, lets see what happens tomorrow morning.

      My memory is fuzzy, but haven’t most of the halftime performers been black over the last several years?

      It seems like an odd thing to complain about now… whatever.

        After the kneeling / Black Lives Matters thing just a few years ago??

        Nah man, racial politics have penetrated into Football. The adults want it to go away because its mildly embarrassing to the league. But there’s a large group of racists who want to stir up anti-Black shit here.

          Ah yeah, I forgot how bad kneeling was spun.

        I think the point was that her voice cracked and it was a comparatively mid halftime show

          I’d say they’ve all been pretty disappointing since Prince. He set the bar pretty high so it’s not really a fair comparison.

      It’s interesting watching their narrative form. Often they don’t have an opinion on a subject until Fox News tells them to.

        I have just yesterday finished reading a collection of stories about Soviet times, and there was a story about how editors were forbidden to print information about an earthquake until the central information bureau published that info. Something along the lines of “I felt the earthquake, too, but it didn’t happen until we got a green light from tops. And after we got one I will say that you brilliantly predicted the earthquake’s existence”

      Ah yes. Racists getting upset about the “Black National Anthem”, painfully unaware that if they go to church, there’s a good chance it’s in their church hymnal.
