  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • As an essential worker for a company displayed at 13:09 I want you all to know that we require workers to come in even if they have the virus. If you are asymptomatic or if you have a close contact you still have to come into work, because they refuse to pay for you to quarantine. Just let that sink in for a minute there, while you come in to buy your nail kits, hair dye and vibrators (yes we sell those). For a company that had been tasked with a huge portion of the country's testing and now vaccinations I find this unacceptable, as well should you. Stay safe out there guys, cause my company sure as hell doesn't care about ours.

  • I'd put it out there that dildos are arguably rather important for sex workers, another community full of people currently struggling to pay their bills, and one that was already struggling to do so because there's never been any semblance of an infrastructure/legalization for ethically produced and consumed erotic content, and there likely won't be until people get off their ass and support them. I understand the frustration, but I'd be far more upset having to pack over a THOUSAND results for "trump t-shirt" that are still on Amazon right now, because they're: usually indecent, graphic designed by an art thief with less taste than British cuisine, and in all likelihood produced by people of Donald Trump's mental age in one of several countries he spent four years tweeting into the ground.

    • It's a coded phrase. Basically if a black man is described as being "articulate" it means he speaks like the "complimenter" expects WASP men to speak. So basically the idea that Amazon is putting forth is that because he doesn't speak in "educated" (and gods only know what they want from him, to me that worker sounded clear and competent about what was wrong) mannerisms, he's not as good as a white person in the same position. - You can see a discussion of it in The West Wing from character Charlie Young when someone tries to compliment him on how "Articulate" he is. I hope to heck and back that Chris Smalls has been able to start rallying that union.

Some sex workers should probably close their business for the duration but not all of them can, and many work online which is the ultimate in "social distancing", the tools of their trade are essential. I get what the man is trying to say, but there are exceptions to almost everything. Sex workers are people too.

If I get a job now, I'll have to ask for a few weeks off to recover from surgery literally right after I've been hired, and they'll probably just fire me on the spot instead. That'd look really bad on a resume, and I'm not in a desperate financial situation, I can sit tight for a little bit. I'll get my surgery done in february, and by mid March I'll be totally recovered and ready to start job hunting! ...Yeah so guess how that's worked out for me.
