Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Thank you for your reply Laly. I didn't so much mean that it was some random BIPOC's job to 'explain things to me'. I do my own research too, but there are some insights one can only learn from the experience of someone who has experienced something. I didn't say you did expect random BIPOCs to exp...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Probably, but what many do believe, for sure, is that Putin is a conservative Christian who defends conservative Christian values, i.e., he's anti-LGBTQ+

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

P. S. The religion argument is a bit ironic in light of the Trump/putin wing lauding putin for being the defender of the Christian faith. Right? It makes no sense. The support for the Ukraine that I'm seeing from my conservative Christian friends does give me a small glimmer of hope, though. Maybe ...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

While she is 'white' many in her family are black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, etc.. but all are AMERICANS . Every bit as much as say, Irish, French, or Ukrainian Americans . There has been an outpouring of support around the world and here in the US for the people of Ukraine and it's plight. There is ...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

oh.. yeah.. that definitely would not go over well. My friend is American has a melting pot family and to presume that we support Ukraine because we're 'all' white American's and 'those other people of color' aren't deserving of our compassion in the same way.. (understandably) really wouldn't go o...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

I should have definitely clarified that my answers to Rose's friend were regarding Americans. I can understand where you're coming from, Al. And, Rose, as Americans, they're not our physical neighbors, but that was my point in my first guess at the reasons for the support--they're our* ancestors, ou...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

Rose, my very inadequate response to your friend would be something along these lines. These are all my best guesses. 1. Many Americans are European descendants and still feel strong connections to their ancestors' countries. 2. Ukrainians are white and look like "us." So just plain tribal...

Re: Russia's Invasion of Ukraine

I was trying to figure out why all of my fundamentalist friends are suddenly so supportive of Ukraine and into world events. Then I realized it was because this is an end times fulfillment prophecy for them. They are expecting the rapture and Armageddon to happen at any point in time now. Sent from ...

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

I agree, Voronwë. It will be mostly undeserved. I don't even blame Trump for this. This extends back much further than either of these two, though I'm no expert on this subject whatsoever. NE, that's the part of Biden's speech that I thought was quite relevant. If the Afghani people won't fight for ...

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

I'm so relieved to again have a president who is sane.

(I'm watching Biden address the nation.)

Re: The last movie you saw Thread

I need to rewatch the series. (And I'm sure they don't use that mnemonic!) I watched this the other night on Netflix, and it was rather decent. Fairly predictable (with only a few surprises for me) and obviously reminiscent of the Hitchcock classic, but a decent watch. Amy Adams was quite good, and ...

I haven't, Inanna.

Frelga, I agree, though Henry Cavill is also devastatingly handsome.

Re: TV obsessions—come on, admit it!

Pretty much the same, Frelga. I do like Call the Midwife, though. I thought about Vikings, but I check the website doesthedogdie.com because I can't watch rape stuff (or animal torture and a few other things). Unfortunately, Vikings looked to be too much. So I'm rewatching Modern Family or watching ...
