    S27.E10: Week 8: Semi-Finals

    Almost all of the pros are from the former Soviet Union or Mormons. It would not make sense to point that out. Keo making the finals is not Obama groundbreaking, but it is noteworthy.

    So happy for Keo and Evanna. Jp did nothing for me. Happy with Evanna or Milo.

    This show loves black male athletes and Carlton. I started seriously loathing Len after seeing how he treated Mario 2.0.

    They are young, single, very attractive and in constant physical contact. Seems natural to me.

    Am I reading this right? Are people implying Val was inappropriate with a minor and,more importantly, that her parents abandoned her to a pedophile. That is beyond insane.

    I do not like this trend of “re-imagining” songs. Just slow it down , strum a guitar and sing in a low slightly menacing voice and it seems you will have a hit. Mr Sandman really tried my patience.

    That was not a jive.

    And this is why I cannot stand him. I want to see dancing. Ballroom dancing. Not table-dancing, skirt-swishing (his go-to move for rhythm-challenged celebs )or synchronized hand-clapping. I am so glad he is gone.

    It is something Black women do. It is commonly done by Black women. I knew immediately what she was talking about.
  10. Oti is awesome! She is an amazing dancer and teacher. I think this is the highest scoring Samba ever on SCD. DWTS does not deserve her.

    Stars who have previous dance training experience growth and also have a journey. They work just as hard, if not harder. With Tinashe and Brandon you also get see this in the pro. Zendaya was someone who was a good dancer from the start and showed improvement. Jenna needs to hush.

    The middle aged white women who make up the largest voting bloc will always choose the mediocre white male over the beautiful talented Black chick. They have done it time and time again.
  13. It happens consistently with talented , attractive black women.

    The issue that I have is the same generalization has been made about a certain type of woman who is of African-American descent. She is cocky, arrogant, has an attitude. When you see the same comment over and over, not backed up by example just a “feeling”, it is not a reach to believe race is the motivation. Mya, Zendaya, Tinashe, Brandy, Normani ... all labeled with some version of this tired reality TV trope. My problem is not that some people do not like these women, to say that is the issue is a pivot. My problem is that these women are so often labeled in the same negative fashion. Black women who are confident and capable are so often seen in a negative light. Pointing this out and speaking on it is not the problem. Lack of “nefarious “ intent is not absolution.

    It is because people come up with the same tired dog-whistle reasons. Every.Single.Time. And because as a Black woman in the workplace, I see and hear the same thing. The truth is there for those willing to see it.
