    Story was wild as frak and really unfortunate for all concerned. :smh:

    The downside of that in reading the article was Page's status with CN.

    Cartoon Network's HR dept. was probably afraid of firing the guy and getting slapped with a disabily discrimination lawsuit ( since it seems the dude had mental issues) as a result, so they kept him on and just took away actual responsibility from him and hoped for the best.

    At least it looks like they got it right this time.
    Real talk. :smh:

    Challenging and diagreeing in a manner that implies that the person you're debating with is biased kind've weighs more towards invalidation than not.

    Eitherway, it's no biggie to me.

    Just an observation.

    Peace.

    The latitude dude seems to have been given is disturbing to say the least especially as CN had a duty of care towards their other employees.

    i know folks are always on the look out for books made by or starring POC's, medievalpoc is doing a fiction week on her(?) tumblr blog. the site itself is a great resource and worth a bookmark, if you're not familiar with it already

    http://medievalpoc.tumblr.com/

    also, let me add another tumblr site, diversity in YA, for those that are looking for YA books for their children, siblings or themselves

    http://diversityinya.tumblr.com/

    edit: i forgot to mention that both and weneeddiversebooks have a feature on the late great, Walter Dean Myers, who passed away on the 1st of this month

    You know it.

    There will likely be much closer scrutiny at Cartoon Network’s Atlanta headquarters over the dialogue and behavior of the characters in Clarence so as to avoid uncomfortable parallels with the personal life of its creator.
    Too late for that. That show creeps me out-I mean first episode showed Clarence putting on girls shoes and stealing them.

    If he was working in the mainstream comicbook industry it's highly unlikely he would have been fired.
    She would have been fired and blackballed.

    Let me put it all to you like this-as long as he stays SILENT and doesn't rant or rave online or in print media.

    He WILL be back or someone will get him. We have seen too many murders and others get a second chance even at the very place that fired them.

    If T.I. is THAT good of a Manager, why can't he save his own career?
    The reason why Izzy is doing well-Kasper pretty much said it earlier. You can also say it about Justin Beiber too.

    It's WAY easier to sell a WHITE artist than a black one.

    They can reach places we can't. Izzy can get on video game soundtracks or get her music placed on tv shows/films-your most talented black ones can't.

    TI's career is dead-that's why he gets into fights with Mayweather to get attention.

    Those poor babies. To have a POC or non-hetero character replace the one they love? The horror.

    I'll let Mr. Krabs play them a song.

    Don't be evil like me.
