Popular Post eskimo December 2, 2021 Popular Post Share December 2, 2021 (edited) I'm curious if the diversity talk changed Erica's vote. If I'd have been her and initially been on board with ousting Ricard, that whole conversation would have told me that Danny, DeShawn, and Liana were a super tight three and there was no way in hell I was wiggling into that. They may have talked their way out of final 3. I know that the race issues are very complex, and I see where the black players are coming from in a lot of ways, but it just irks me that they are so dismissive of the POC players that aren't black. Both Naseer and Erica are pretty dark brown and they also take that wherever they go. I admit I have no idea what brown POC go through in comparison to black POC, probably depends on the area. Anyway, when Liana said she was so happy to see 50% POC this season, only to dismiss all the ones who were not black? That left a bad taste in mouth. Same with Shan in her Ponderosa video saying how once she saw Liana, DeShawn, Danny, and JD she knew there was a bigger purpose (or something like that). She actually had the nerve to mention JD, the black guy she screwed over to get his advantages. Didn't care about the bigger picture then, did you? I think that's the difference between these guys and The Cookout, The Cookout members walked the talk from start to finish. I'd also like to mention that it seems as if they don't think they are representing their culture properly if they don't play together and I think that is completely wrong. If they click then great, play together. But if they don't, you can still represent your culture by just being who you are. But don't say one thing when it sounds good, then do another (in terms of racial issues, not the game itself). Edited December 2, 2021 by eskimo 48 Link to comment
