Black Lives DO Matter, But Je Suis Appalled Comments (0)

Prof. Brittney Cooper, writing for Salon.com, derides the Je Suis Charlie movement as a whites-only, disingenuous display, pointing out that because white people in America aren't on board with #blacklivesmatter, their embrace of #jesuischarlie just underscores our racism.

She goes on to imply that while white women may have a right to call out their black rapists, she isn't exactly on board with supporting them unless there is racial quid pro quo—again, because in her view, white America does not accept that #blacklivesmatter.

I found her essay revolting because it came off the same way so many comments from white racists do on the Internet, like there is a score being kept. I recall arguments that Trayvon Martin and other victms' stories were being blown out of proportion, with examples used of white people who had been brutalized by black people—completely ignoring that the cases at hand shared nothing in common (obvious criminal activity that was punished and that everyone agreed should be punished vs. legally fraught situations where public opinion seemed to hinge on race).

Not all of white America thinks #blacklivesdontmatter—I don't think that, and I know I'm not alone. But I can not imagine not being moved by the Charlie Hebdo massacre, by Bill Cosby's obviously true history of sexual abuse, by Trayvon Martin's senseless killing, by the #icantbreathe movement...I think these things should be looked at by what's wrong and what's right, not whether some white women historically helped imprison black men on phony rape charges, not whether slavery used to be legal in America.

It struck me as a deeply negative piece, one that luxuriates in divisiveness. It even denigrates Common for being too inclusive. It's wrong-headed thinking, even if race is still very much an issue.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler owned at the Globes; their opening monologue was the perfect combo of topical, funny, edgy and yet not pointlessly mean-spirited. Loved many of the winners, too, especially Matt Bomer, Patricia Arquette and Transparent.

Full monologue after the jump...

Transparent
Finally catching up on Transparent. It's even better than I'd already assumed it would be. Jeffrey Tambor is sooo getting an Emmy. I'm actually surprised other actors on the show weren't nominated for Golden Globes.

Trans-RopersRopers

Just a few short decades ago, Jeffrey Tambor was starring with Audra Lindley on the silly show The Ropers, and now he's borrowing her wardrobe to help make a serious statement about life.

I think TV has officially surpassed the movies. TV used to be something legit actors avoided, because TV used to be The Ropers and now it's Transparent. Please check it out if you've been holding back.

Golden-Globes

The best Golden Globes takes so far are from Mia Farrow (above), who was not even gonna try with the Woody Allen tribute, and from Colton Haynes (below), whose closet door isn't glass but is instead a handy bedsheet.

Colton-Haynes

I think Amy and Tina are insanely suited to this kind of thing and it was gratifying that Amy finally won a goddamned award for "Leslie Knope."

It was nice that Jackie Bisset won her first award ever for anything, though she kicked off a lot of long, uncomfortable pauses in acceptance speeches, as well as long journeys from disadvantageous seating.

I was happy for Leo DiCaprio; just saw and loved Wolf of Wall Street (great movie about terrible people I wish all died at the end), the second movie in which he's ever  impressed me. 

Amy Adams was incandescently amazing in American Hustle, so I'm on board with that win, too.

I'd never so much as heard of Brooklyn 99 before, so I'll have to seek it out.

Michael Douglas's "mincing" comment was annoying, but what do you expect from the son of Natalie Wood's rapist? He was totally overrated in the totally overrated Behind the Candelabra.

I'm dying that Steve McQueen called Sarah Paulsen the "Bette Davis of America." Dude, Bette Davis was the Bette Davis of America and there is no connection there. You'd be better off calling Jared Leto the Bette Davis of America.

I'll update this as the show draws to a close, but...what did you think?
