Wayfair employees plan walkout to oppose furniture sales to migrant detention facilities

Employees of the Boston-based online housewares giant Wayfair announced Tuesday that they would stage a walkout at the company’s Back Bay offices Wednesday to protest the company’s decision to sell furniture to operators of facilities for migrant children detained at the southern US border.

According to a Wayfair employee who asked not to be identified for fear of retribution, Wayfair employees learned last Wednesday that a $200,000 order of bedroom furniture had been placed by BCFS, a government contractor that has been managing camps at the border.

Some of the richest people (owners) and the players (also rich) self flagellation for public consumption....idiots.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said the NBA will look to move away from the use of the term "owner" to describe those with controlling interest of teams in favor of terms like "Governor of the team," "alternate Governor," or even "Chairman."

I heard about that whole "owner" thing on ESPN710, I think Draymond Green was one of the players who started this "movement".

So when I was watching the NBA Draft, I was thinking why wasn't anyone making comparisons to a slave auction.

Are sports like reverse-racism? Many of the highest paid athletes in the US are minorities.

Endless comedy....

Manholes in Berkeley will now be called 'maintenance holes'

Eliminating the gendered connotations of words like "manhole" in the city municipal code.

No longer will the streets of fair Berkeley be dotted with manholes, nary a womanhole or nonbinaryhole in sight. With Tuesday night's vote, they have all been transmuted into "maintenance holes," that highest, hardest glass manhole-cover finally shattered.

The ordinance eliminates all gendered pronouns from the city code, replacing "she" and "he" with "they."

"Manpower" will be referred to as "human effort," and "man-made" objects will be described with terms like "human-made," "artificial," "manufactured," "machine made" or "synthetic."

California Newspeak:

To meet the ideological requirements of California Socialism (Calsoc), the Democratic Party created Newspeak, a controlled language of restricted grammar and limited vocabulary, meant to limit freedom of thought, personal identity, self-expression, free will — that threatens the ideology of the régime, who have criminalized such concepts into thoughtcrime, as contradictions of Calsoc orthodoxy.

Being her must be so horribly confusing...

Scarlett Johansson defends casting: 'I should be allowed to play any person, tree or animal'

 "I recognize that in reality, there is a wide spread discrepancy amongst my industry that favors Caucasian, cis gendered actors and that not every actor has been given the same opportunities that I have been privileged to. I continue to support, and always have, diversity in every industry and will continue to fight for projects where everyone is included."

There's two ways to look at it.  The first is that an actor or actress's job is to pretend that he/she is someone else, thus even if a white person has to wear dark makeup and act in role of a black person, that's just part of the job.

The other view is that the actor or actress is not only portraying, but also representing the character.  Therefore to be faithful to the character, you should hire a black person to portray a black character.

Not sure about hiring Scarlet Johansoon to play a tree though.  Wouldn't you just...  use a tree?
