Emmy’s Get Super Woke, But, Of Course, It’s Not Woke Enough

This just goes to prove that no matter what you do it will never be enough for the SJWs/BLMers

Emmys: Why Jimmy Kimmel and Anthony Anderson’s Black Lives Matter moment wasn’t enough

The Emmys reflected the new reality of COVID-19 by going virtual Sunday, but the broadcast itself didn’t do enough to address the continued fight for equality – luckily, the stars in attendance made up for it with poignant fashion choices and speeches.

The show checked the Black Lives Matter box with a skit featuring Anthony Anderson and host Jimmy Kimmel. During the moment, Anderson noted the “record number of Black Emmy nominees this year.”

“This was supposed to be the Blackest Emmys ever,” Anderson said. “These Emmys would have been so Black. It would have been like hot sauce in your purse Black. It would have been Howard University homecoming Black. It would have been ‘You fit the description’ Black.”

Then, Anderson coaxed Kimmel to follow him in a Black Lives Matter chant.

“Say it so that Mike Pence can hear it: Black Lives Matter,” Anderson said before saying he was “glad I got that off my chest.” Kimmel added with a laugh, “I’m glad you did too.”

With a platform this large, the Emmys could have and should have done more. This was a time to be firm in their support instead of briefly mentioning it.

Instead, the broadcast could have taken time to highlight what steps the academy is taking toward equality or the show could have allotted time for stars to speak about the Black Lives Matter movement, similar to the way first responders got a platform to speak about the coronavirus.

See? Never enough. They should set a quota that 12.9% of all Hollywood actors/actresses by Black. Would that be acceptable?

But while Kimmel and Anderson’s Black Lives Matter moment fell short, other stars stepped in to make up for it.

Regina King wore a Breonna Taylor shirt that read “Say Her Name” while accepting an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for “Watchmen.”

“(Breonna Taylor) represents just decades, hundreds of years of violence against Black bodies,” King said virtually backstage at the Emmys. “Wearing Breonna’s likeness, representing her and her family (tied into) the stories that we were exploring, that we were presenting, that we were holding a mirror up to in ‘Watchmen.'”

Say her name? Sure. Breonna Taylor, woman who dated a big time drug dealer, and was still friends with him, to the point that everyone thought she was the one protecting the drug money and getting the ex’s mail, and perhaps protecting drugs. Don’t consort with criminals, how about that?

And he’s correct. The Television Academy can truly promote equality by doing the work to use diverse casts accurately to portray underrepresented stories to show that everyone has a place in this world.

That shows that Black lives matter. Not forcing anyone to say so.

Actually, that sounds like forcing everyone to say so. It sounds like forcing people and networks to make shows that are Approved. BTW, where’s the diversity on the Black Entertainment Network? Hey, maybe we can make a show about how things are going in Baltimore, St. Louis, and Chicago, among others.

Again, it goes to prove that when you surrender to SJWs, they will always demand more.

    TEACH, in his descent into further madness, smears a dead woman who can’t defend herself. In TEACH’s defense Breonna Taylor was Black.

    TEACH typed: Breonna Taylor, woman who dated a big time drug dealer, and was still friends with him, to the point that everyone thought she was the one protecting the drug money and getting the ex’s mail, and perhaps protecting drugs. Don’t consort with criminals, how about that?

    So “everyone” thought she was protecting drug money. She wasn’t.

    Getting the ex’s mail. She previously received packages, but no evidence drugs were involved.

    Protecting drugs? No drugs were found. She nor her current partner had any drug record. Her sister who lived there had no drug record.

    Mr. Walker admitted shooting once after he and Ms. Taylor heard the door being broken down, but the police haven’t decided if Walker hit the one injured officer or if it was friendly fire.

    TEACH: Don’t consort with criminals, how about that?

    Really? We think he meant “Don’t consort with Black criminals.”

    After all, Donald J. Trump has consorted with criminals for decades, including international mass murderers, extortionists, perjurers, witness tamperers, those lying to FBI, money launderers, tax cheats, liars to Congress, child rapists, several in the past few years.

    Would all that consorting justify shooting him 5 times?

      Seems the little kidf#cker has an affinity for dead black hoes.
      They can do no wrong.

        We’re certain TEACH welcomes the sophistication Rodney the Dogsucker brings to his modest blog.

        A Black woman was shot 5 times by the police breaking into her apartment. They found no drugs, no nothing. Mr. Walker (registered gun owner) fired one shot when unidentified men broke into Ms.

        A certain Slovenian immigrant used to sell her body and still consorts with criminals. Would Rodney cheer police shooting her 5 times, killing that nasty ho?

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Guess I’ll know in the future not to tangle with a little kidf#cking lover of dead black drug dealing hoes because of my supposed, ummm … lack of sophistication.

          Rimjob sure showed me.

          Bwaha! Lolgfy https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

          The nasty is strong with Jeffery. Gropin’ Joe is folding fast and RBG’s death means the Demos won’t have enough friends at SCUS if the election hasto be appealed.

          I’m sure there’s an end to that sentence, but poor Jeffery is too overwrought.

          Truth is, one Breonna’s old Johns had multiple warrants on him and chez Breonna was on one of them. The guy fired first and the cops returned fire.

          OK, so Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion sell their bodies by that context. So did all the people in Black Panther.

          And the First Lady (you must be jealous as Hell of Trump) does not consort with criminals. If you can find one, we’d all love to know.

          liljeffy AFAIK supports law and order, so you can draw whatever conclusions you like.

      Not sure what he’s babbling about, but Teach merely restated the facts. Jeffery doesn’t like facts, but no Lefty does.

      So “everyone” thought she was protecting drug money. She wasn’t.

      Getting the ex’s mail. She previously received packages, but no evidence drugs were involved.

      There was evidence enough to get a warrant. That’s what the law demands. The fact she had consorted with a known pusher made her what is euphemistically known as a person of interest.

      And firing without having a target is world-class dumb.

      Really? We think he meant “Don’t consort with black criminals.”

      Very good point, In the immortal words of Chris Rock, obey the law. And, yes, stupid gets you killed.

      After all, Donald J. Trump has consorted with criminals for decades, including international mass murderers, extortionists, perjurers, witness tamperers, those lying to FBI, money launderers, tax cheats, liars to Congress, child rapists, several in the past few years.

      He did? Let us know who these nefarious people were, you must share it. If you mean Jeffrey Epstein, AFAIK, he is dead and he was the one who tried to consort with Trump, until Trump threw him out of Mar-A-Lago.

      I think you mean Epstein’s best bud, Willie Whitewater. If anyone has consorted with international mass murderers, extortionists, perjurers, witness tamperers, those lying to FBI, money launderers, tax cheats, liars to Congress, and child rapists, that’s him.

      Unless, of course you mean Gropin’ Joe.

      Would all that consorting justify shooting him 5 times?</i?

      I think Donald Trump has brains enough not to consort with anyone stupid enough to fire blindly through a close door.
