    Tochi has no idea, but he’s actually being interviewed by a guy who shilled for a racist. Pathetic really.

    That show ( Riot Baby ) is facinating but graphic and heavy metal creepy. Tragic. Great animation.

    Dear Trevor, I am taking a week off from the news this week starting at 12noon today! Thank you for ALL YOU DO! I woke up this morning to the realization that this is African American History Month and with it being the shortest month of the year I can’t forget to Celebrate All that We have contributed to Society.I was gratefully reminded when my nephew sent me a photo of an artpiece that I have; the Art Kane Jazz Portrait Harlem 1958.
    I have been so focused on “45; the person in the White House” and all that has entailed that it has distracted me. I think it has distracted a lot of others as well with the constant arguing and divisiveness..I think I will focus just for this week on totally Celebrating the African American journey in the World and this Country. I will Celebrate the strength, determination and love we have.
    JUST FOR ONE WEEK I am taking the focus off of 45 and putting it on Celebrating Love, Inclusiveness,Forgiveness, Growth and Kindness. I invite you to join me. With our Voice we Can Change the Way of the World! My HOPE is that Someday Soon LOVE is Going to Change the Way of the World! I believe we are ONE UNIVERSAL FAMILY AND I WISH THE BEST FOR EVERYONE.💜✌️🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏽 LET”S GET THS CELEBRATION STARTED!! P.S. Please stop using and promoting the N WORD, you didn’t grow up in this country and you don’t know the impact this word had on us. I was at a store on Venice Beach last week and there was a song playing in the store using the N word numerous times! What about that is to be Celebrated??? I left the store without purchasing anything and will never return!

    Sci-Fi used to be the equivalence of social commentary, now writers have to answer for “is it the right place to do this”.

    He says X-Men are about civil rights. It could be that sure, but I think the extra have more in common with lgbqt rights.
    They are born different but they can choose to hide what they are or they can come out and show their mutant powers.

    Whoa I never thought about X-Men like that. I mean I get that it’s supposed to be one group making the other feel like they’re not apart of society but I never made connection as racism. My mind has been opened

    If Tochi was a criminal it would have gone thus “The Nigerian-American”.
    Why am I not Surprised Trevor has joined the club.
