Viral support for bullying victims like Keaton Jones won’t fix the bigger problem

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

When a video of Keaton Jones, a bullied boy crying to his mother about the torment he faced at his Tennessee middle school, went viral late last week, celebrities rallied in support. Actor Chris Evans, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker, and singer Katy Perry were just a few of the famous names who sent messages of support to Keaton in the days after his mother posted the video to social media. As quickly as the outpouring of support arrived, so too did the backlash — photos spotted online of his mother and other family members posing near Confederate flags sparked an uproar, causing some of Keaton’s online supporters to turn on him.

Check out the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving-game stuffing dish, a bit of absurd American opulence

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Everything is falling apart. About 40 percent of the United States, split at the seams, can't understand the other 60 percent (and vice versa). And we're all so busy yelling into the void that it's impossible to hear a damn thing anyone is saying. Nuclear war just sort of hangs there, a bulbous nightmare on the horizon. LaVar Ball is on prime-time CNN. What I'm saying is, on Thanksgiving eve, feast your eyes on American indulgence as this whole experiment appears to be crumbling. That's the "Texas-Style Dressing Holiday Meal," an apparent peace offering from Jerry Jones for threatening to blow up the NFL.
