Kevin Hart fueled a dangerous trope: the unenlightened black homophobe

Sunday 14:29 GMT

This episode has given fuel to a dangerous trope: of the unenlightened black homophobe who must be corrected by wiser white liberals.

It is easy for white liberals to imagine homophobia as the fault of a cartoonish black character in their mind even though black people hardly wield the social, financial and legal power which drives homophobia in the world. It’s difficult for liberals to reckon with how LGBT people could never be as harmed by the likes of Hart as they have been by Bush’s inaction on Aids, by Bill Clinton’s anti-gay marriage (the Defense of Marriage Act) and military (“Don’t ask, don’t tell”) policies , by George W Bush’s warmongering, and by the majority of white people who elected the current homophobe in the oval office.

Millennial socialists have a lot to learn from George H.W. Bush's legacy

Sunday 15:25 GMT

It's a shame that millennial socialist leaders, like 29-year old congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have no memory of the horrible legacy of the communist regime that was responsible for the deaths of over 50 million people, and no memory of those who fought against it like our 41st president.

Nearly 30 years later, President George H.W. Bush, the heroic leader who presided over the fall of the Soviet Union, has passed.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey slammed for promoting Myanmar as a tourist destination

Sunday 22:44 GMT

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is coming under fire from users of his company’s social media platform after he published several tweets promoting Myanmar as a tourist destination despite allegations of genocide and human rights abuses in the Southeast Asian country.

WATCH: House of Commons votes unanimously to label Myanmar Rohingya killings a genocide. Others said that Dorsey’s ringing endorsement of Myanmar as a tourist destination was all the more galling given the government’s use of social media to push anti-Rohingya messaging that has fuelled the killings.

Social media sites should focus less on nipples and more on Nazis

Sunday 13:34 GMT

Well, here’s some quick and easy advice for Tumblr et al: why not spend a little less time worrying about nipples, and a lot more time worrying about Nazis?

The big social networks, which don’t seem very keen to do anything about the conspiracy theories and rightwing hate groups hijacking their platforms, have been very active in battling breasts. While male tennis players are allowed to go topless, seeing a woman’s sports bra is apparently appalling.
