The Big Sick – Movie Review


About a Pakistani-American who only dates White women, but fails to tell his parents and keeps wasting his parent’s time and wasting the time of all the Pakistani-American women who visit in an attempt for an arranged marriage. Based on a true story.

Best line in the movie said to the Pakistani parents:

“Why did you move us to America if you didn’t want me to be American.”

Issues with the movie

Seems to support the doctrine of White supremacy because Kumail Nanjiani only dates White women in the movie, even if the Pakistani-American women are better looking. Nanjiani doesn’t give the Pakistani-American women a chance, not even a date.


Gratuitous Obama Picture #11

Malia is now 17 (born two months before Google) and Sasha is 14 (born three months before 9/11).

It is hard for me to look at this picture and not see it as the end of a golden age, even though it was hardly a golden age – though it might come to seem that way if Trump comes to power! (Well, compared to most of world history, it is a golden age, at least for the US.)

Multiracial Asian Families: [VIDEO] Raising Mixed Race @ Kinokuniya Seattle

by Sharon H. Chang

On Saturday afternoon, March 5, 2016 we held the first unbelievable Raising Mixed Race book signing at Kinokuniya Bookstore in Seattle’s International District. I say “we” because I was very intentional in organizing the event. I wanted it to be not just about me – but about community and centering, uplifting all mixed race, people and women of color voices; a transformative goal that actually lies at the center of Raising Mixed Race itself.

Zendaya Coleman is Getting Her Very Own Barbie Doll

During a recent visit to the Mattel offices, Zendaya discussed her relationship with Barbie growing up:


“When I was little, I didn’t have one that looked like me, so I couldn’t connect with her in that way. But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future…I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of.”

A 19-year-old Wisconsin man was shot and killed Friday by a police officer during a scuffle inside an apartment in Madison, police officials said. The shooting prompted protests that continued on Saturday and led officials to call for restraint while the shooting is investigated.
The shooting occurred Friday evening after the police received calls for a man who had committed battery and was jumping in and out of traffic, Michael C. Koval, the Madison chief of police, said. A police officer followed the man to an apartment and forced his way in after hearing a disturbance inside, the chief said. The man then assaulted the officer, who shot the man, according to Chief Koval, who spoke at a news conference in Madison Friday evening.
The officer immediately began rendering first aid, but the man died at a hospital, Chief Koval said. The authorities did not immediately release his name, but his mother identified him as Tony Robinson, an African-American who graduated from high school in 2014.


“My son has never been a violent person,” Andrea Irwin, who identified herself as Mr. Robinson’s mother, told WKOW, a Madison television station. “And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me.”…
