Walt Disney, the man, not the company, was a notorious racist back in the day. No big deal, plenty of people were and continue to be racists... just one of those inescapable stupidities of life. These days, of course, Disney is the shining beacon of all- inclusiveness... or are they? Last August, a black family from San Diego... the Black family... seriously, the black family's last name is Black... went to Disneyland and, according to them, the guy in the White Rabbit costume (from 'Alice in Wonderland') refused to hug their kids. He'd hug white kids (he IS the WHITE Rabbit, after all) but not the Black's black kids. Who knows? Whatever the case. the Blacks, as in the family, not all black people, are suing Disney, asking for an apology and for the employee to be fired. We'll see what happens. All of us have been on the receiving end of judgment, whether it's based on race, gender, sexuality, clothing, sports affiliation or whatever, so today is about the 'haters' drinking 'hatorade': we wanted to know: WHEN DID YOU GET "HATED" ON AND WHY DO YOU THINK YOU WERE SINGLED OUT?
Once again, a little distracted today with all kinds of stuff. However, after fielding answers to today's question, we had the chance to interview Soundgarden bassist Ben Sheppard. This is a man who says precious little and does NOT bullsh*t... and for that, I loved him. Seriously. We couldn't tell if he was bored, if he hated us or if he was enjoying himself, but his complete lack of pretense is awesome. Maybe you heard the interview, maybe you didn't... but I love talking to the guy specifically because he is the way he is. He's one of those unintentionally funny people. Hard to explain, but I love the guy. He might hate me.
OK bitches, I'm off to see Soundgarden!
Have a great weekend. Until Monday, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
