FEELING MIGHTY FUCKED RIGHT NOW
In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”
During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:
The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.
Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career

Flock of feral turkeys terrorizes Staten Island homeowners
They’re loud, they’re destructive and they have absolutely no qualms about defecating or having sex on your front lawn at 6 am. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the feral turkeys of Staten Island.
Besides the fact that you can outwrite every motherfucker on the planet sentence by sentence, and you’re one of us. Besides that little fact, that little fact that always puts me to bed comfortable. No matter what the hell’s going on in the world, I always lay in bed, and I’m like, ‘The best writer in the world is of African descent. Peace!’—
SO GLAD that someone transcribed this!!
Agreed, Toni Morrison is in my opinion the greatest living writer working in the English language. Every single one of her novels is a masterpiece of world literature, and her greatest works transcend our time and will be read and studied for centuries.
