Question from Candyce: Do you attend a virtual "church?"
dotcomguy: On Sundays, I do go to various religious sites. One of the great things about the internet is the ability to share information and ideas with people around the world, especially in regards to religion.
catch me at age 40 with the Fox Mulder hair, riding my goldwing, getting emotional about paranormal activities
being accused of being in the illuminati is the ultimate goal
that gif of taylor swift with grills makes me so uncomfortable please tag it nsfw
why do white hip-hop heads romanticize artists that probably hate them
Talib Kweli and Mos Def both hate your respectability politics and you’re not the first person ever to hear about J Dilla sorry to break it 2 you
But on some real shit. It makes me happy that Mandela outlived Thatcher and Reagan.

like, I’m halfway convinced the reason white people from the suburbs or out of state or whatever don’t mind jumping straight into the over-simplified narratives of DETROIT IS GREAT/~DETROIT POSITIVITY/SMALL BUSINESS/DAN GILBERT~ or ~DETROIT IS SCARY AND DANGEROUS AND A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY AND A NUCLEAR FALL OUT ZONE~ is that when they write their fuckin
articles they might actually have to talk to a black person who might not like them and that makes them uncomfortable so they stick to the press releases from Dan Gilbert’s marketing company
i mean i don’t live in detroit but my job brings me into the houses of people living in the city on an almost-daily basis and stuff so i do get to see like pretty much all aspects of the city and believe it or not ther are actual Real People with Real Families who live there and stuff its mind boggling
i mean not to downplay the very real structural issues facing the city and like yes there are a fuck ton of abandoned buildings but still
yeah, it’s like, there are 700,000~ people living in the city of Detroit but like, it’s way easier to write/depict the whole ‘Detroit looks like a third world county/nuclear fall out zone/whatever’ if you don’t have to actually engage with any of them
