    I’ve not watched the video yet but just from the thumbnail I was, wow, what a great match! Both Trevor and her are beautiful people but they look like they’re compatible from an esthetic point of view at least. Ok, now I’ll watch the video. :))

    As someone who does not care about ballet misty copeland is actually an idol this is the first time I’ve seen her other than just hearing her name and just the genuine way she speaks and the way that compliments just her positive but realistic outlook on life is amazing

    I feel for prince that his hip was hurting/injured so bad. I wish he would’ve opted for the hip surgery and sacrificed his movement during recovery and as needed. Then he may still be here today.

    Americas relevance in Ballet was on the backs of Maria Tallchief Americas first prima and the 5 moons. Sad to see that can be forgotten in a single lifetime. Then again same story with Jim Thorpe and football and track and field.

    Misty is a Goddess.

    Mainstream Media Protecting Joe Biden By Not Disclosing His Racist History
    *Joe Biden referred to little Black children as “Roaches”, a street term for unclean, wannabe thugs from the projects. “So I learned about Roaches, I learned about kids jumping on my lap…”….Joe Biden
    See the video and decide for yourself…
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prx5XO7M-vI
    *Joe Biden is on record praising Senator Robert Byrd, a former high ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan, his “Lifelong Friend” and “Mentor”
    *Senator Joe Biden drafted the 1994 Crimes Bill which unfairly targeted and incarcerated Black Americans calling them “Super Predators” and to “Lock the S.O.B.s up!”
    *In 1975, Biden became the lead anti-busing Senator and led the effort to prevent busing which would keep schools segregated, a position which delighted Southern segregationists. His VP pick, Senator Kamala Harris told Biden “It was hurtful” that he openly supported legislators who were known Segregationists and he opposed busing to desegregate schools.

    Where there is smoke, there is fire. The Media is doing a great disservice to all Americans, but especially Black Americans by hiding this information. Real Evil at work here.

    I dig Trevor’s haircut and casual style compared to when he’s presenting from the studio.

    hi there – at the Vienna State Opera, one of the most important Opera houses on the planet, we had a wonderful supercool my absolute favorite dancer who also happens to be black – her name is Nikisha Fogo – she switched to the San Francisco Ballet for the 2020/21 season. There is also another black Soloist at the Vienna Opera, her name is Rebecca Horner, https://www.wiener-staatsoper.at/en/artists/opera/detail/artist/45-horner-rebecca/.

    Date a beautiful black woman if you really feel proud of your race NOAH. If I was that black woman your interviewing I would not go to your show because you only date exclusively white women. Date a brown skin or black skin black woman Noah, but I know you would not because you think white is beautiful and black is not. You are a pure hypocrite.
