    Pharrell has those magical genes where he doesn’t show his age at all. Like damn, looks like he’s in his mid-late 30’s or something.

    Making Juneteenth a national holiday is due, but it definitely isn’t enough. We need justice and equality, we need people to have basic rights. Not just people having performative gestures.

    Pharrell has a beautifully young face and very conscious mind, if Cuomo doesn’t want to president, Parrell would be a great alternative?

    I honestly can’t believe it isn’t already. Well, I can believe it, given the massive inequality in the US.. but.. I can’t believe it, y’know?

    I’m good with it, but there seems to be an attitude that we have reached the limit on holidays, so something has to go away. I wonder which holiday it would be. Labor Day maybe?

    The fact that isn’t a holiday speaks to how much racism hasn’t gone away in your country. Just saying.

    Holiday? Darlin, I will be grieving and rejoicing on that day. However, all the other days, I really want to kick ‘white supremacist’ ass!

    Jimmy should paint his face black again and pretend to be Malone, to show his support for the black community.

    It feels great when woke virtue signalling celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel gets hit right in the face with their own bullshit. His sketches are not the problem. It is the fact that he acts very politically correct and shames people who don’t agree with him. Well Jimmy, you just got eaten by your own flock.

    Jimmy goes in hiding like all liberal democrats when caught, will come out like nothing happened as hypocritical as ever.

    “Looking back, many of these sketches are embarrassing, and it is frustrating that these thoughtless moments have become a weapon used by some to diminish my criticisms of social and other injustices.” -Kimmel

    Your side turns everything Trump says into a weapon. Have fun getting a taste. Your Friend, Karma

    Jesus, cancel culture is so obnoxious… Look what you are all doing, because you have nothing good happening in your lives, so you are focusing on those who are on the spotlight. I mean, how old are you all. Do you remember what was appropriate back then? Yes, it is changing and it is good that it is changing, so people are changing and growing and what is appropriate now will maybe not be appropriate in 10 years and a new bunch of people will be “exposed” because of what they do today?

    Aren´t you sick of it? I mean, look at your lives, you are all so saint, you never did something you are embarrassed for in your that you have learned from to be a better person? These people just happened to have it inscribed in internet history. Ask your parents what they did and expose them, I am sure you will be vicious as you are on these people. They said sorry, they made themselves accountable for it, they have grown. I am so sick of it.
