An Open Letter + #TBT: Before I Had The Flu And I Watched Black-ish With That "Chink In The Marital Armor" Comment

Dear Me Before I Had The Flu,

Sure in some ways I know - it's strange to get the flu now - and it was bad...I mean I can't believe I'm even walking...

But I pulled through it and I'm glad for us as we're feeling a little better now.

Sure maybe not as good as pre-flu, but it takes time...

Good enough to catch up on some Black-ish though (s1 ep16)


Are you kidding me?

"Chink in the marital armor?"




Why do shows always have to fuck it up?

And Black-ish?

I thought they were supposed to be above this?

Taking on new racial conversations, new dialogues...errr...

Guess not?


If you don't know you can't use that phrase anymore I can't really help you because you truly have no clue - and if you decide to bust one out on the etymology and use of the word and how it was accepted, etc., etc., etc., blah blah blah, xenophobic you could care less about implications and connotations - well - I just may be inclined to bust a boot up someone's clenched little derrière (in spirit only of course)...

Well...that's it for now.

Hope I'm feeling as good as you soon,
