Ashton Kutcher and Kris Jenner

Allah knows that the days I give a crap what Mr Demi or Ms Jenner have to say is a vanishingly small number, in recent days each made shockingly interesting comments. Now, there is some obvious pablum contained therein, like the part where she claims Kim Kardashian is the hardest working woman in America, or when Ashton claims that he thinks smart is the sexiest thing about a woman (he ain’t bedding rocket scientists), but their larger points I thought were excellent.

Kris speaks to dreaming big, chasing the American dream, working hard, and striving for success. She also throws some haymakers at Teh One.

Ashton speaks to hard work, never being better than the job in front of him, taking advantage of opportunities, and how to define yourself, as opposed to letting the media or society do so.

I found them both quite refreshing. I hope you do too.

The Rules For Racism

There have been variations of this floating around before, but I like this one. I probably would have gone a little further into their ability to hear codewords and dog whistles, and bastardize the English language to make innocuous statements and everyday words into baseless charges of racism. However, this list is good.

Denounced. Denounced and condemned.
