"And the headline of his piece on his own site.

And it's It's a long article and in the article He points out, and he calls the elites the Allex. E. L. E. C. T s Says the elects commonly insist that critics of CRT would feel differently if they read actual foundational articles about it. But the issue is what is being done in CRTs name? Not what some articles contained decades ago. Early writings by people like Regina Austin, Richard Delgado, Kimberly Crenshaw, who you'll all learn about in American Marxism. Simply hard leftist legal analyses, proposing a revised conception of justice that takes suppression into account, including a collective sense of subordinate group identity. These are hardly calls to turn schools in the mouse reeducation camps. Fostering star chambers and struggle sessions. Actually, they kind of do do that, But let's go on. However, this indeed is what is happening to educational institutions across the country. Moreover, it's no tort to call it CRT in shorthand when these developments are descended from its teachings. And they're architects openly build themselves as following the tenants of critical race theory. In language terms evolving quickly Witness of late how this has happened with the cancel culture and even woke to insist that CRT must be properly referred only to the contents of obscure law review articles from decades ago.

NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow. He just kicked it back far for me

"So without further ado please enjoy this episode of Our podcast alarmed by today, we are sitting down with author of racism real reason I left the South Regina Hanson, Ms Hanson how're you doing today? Rain Hurry guys doing I'm doing great. Pretty good myself. So for those in the audience who have not yet read your book, can you tell us a little bit about it? Absolutely this is in our. It's brave is less than twenty five thousand words anti initially wrote it. My first thought author is this isn't going to be long enough is it? It isn't gonNA be substantial enough. And then I thought about. The fact that our readers are dropping like flies. We don't read as much as we used to, and there's nothing wrong with getting your message out there effectively and efficiently and twenty five thousand words or less. So that's what I did. It starts in nineteen thirty, six with my father's father being run out of a little town called Georgia. And he was a white male. In the runs through history predominantly in Georgia. In conveys different stories of racism, my parents. Either saw were experienced. As well as what I did in school. Includes a Klan rally in our little small town on Saturday around nine, hundred, eighty six. And Your stories that are weaved together to give a message that. It's still a problem. We need to overcome it and we can overcome that we can't be blind to it. I really cut my. Myself on a chopping block here. I left no stone unturned. I questioned myself my own motives, my own weaknesses. When I should have done better when I did. Okay. It's all in there. And I'm very grateful for the fact that the response is opera. See. Have Been. Particularly from the buck community. which was sern. and. They said, we really appreciate your honesty. And the fact that you dove in headfirst. And left nece terms. Are So. Just to recap the, why did you write this book and more specifically what inspired you to write it? Excellent Questions Josh on this campus, my entire life these stories were festering in my soul if you will right and to give you an idea of how long I'll be fifty in a few weeks. So these were always there. and. I wanted to put them in a book but I, thought author we're going be in a different memoir in a very dear friend of mine from national. Tennessee said to me Gene Abou that turned it names for me. These don't work in the story you're.
"regina" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"We are back you're listening to. It's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. This week on the show, we are revisiting my chat with Actress Regina King From Twenty Nine, thousand nine we spoke about her late show watchman on HBO. Last week. We all found out that Regina Cain up for an emmy for her performance on that show Congrats Regina. So the show. Watchmen give me your elevator pitch in thirty seconds and I'll come. First of all, this is an elevator pitch if you're on a local elevator in the empire state building. So it is a show that comes from source material comic. Comic Books, it uses the source material as if it's the Bible, it is the Bible of this alternate universe, and in this alternate universe we have picked up for those who are fans of the book. We've picked up thirty years from when that book Okay, and we are while like that book dealt with the threat of Cold War. In this story, our biggest fear is. Racism and policing. Sounds like my life. Yes. You know and I mean, I thought that was so smart for Damon to choose as that backdrop imminent fear. Also. The show is like a Gumbo of genres. So you have. Fi you have romance. You have humor You have real historic events that will be happening. Open is the Tulsa race riot. Yes. Given history to. Yes. And that's one of the things that I thought when I first read the script out. Mike Oh. My God. Your character in this show I want to describe it accurately you in this layer. So the character. Known character is a former police officer. I? Think we can say the she's a police officer, but she is operating on the cover as police officer because a certain series of events have taken place that has led the police department in Tulsa to. Police in a way that their identities are hidden so that you all these officer wearing masks. Yes. On patrol patrol. Already. And then the detectives their uniform if you will is individual to ev not one detectives whereas whereas the same thing So Angela a bar is who I play to me, she kind of represents all of us. In the way I say that. Because in the first episode. You get to see three different masks, Ya. Know, and that's of how we move in real life. You know who we are at the family reunion is different than who we are at home with the immediate family et then who we are at work. You know. So we're always constantly. Changing masks and sometimes we get confused on which one we should have on us. Through Angela, we kind of explore all of that. Through Angela through story. So this show that is asking us to grapple with the questions about policing, but in way where everything's flipped on its head, the racial hierarchy seemed to David be flipped relationship between cops and civilians seems to be flipped. When you think about using a show like that to get it these big central questions of American Life. Does it work better or differently than show that has perhaps more. What we see every day, you've done other shows about raising policing that seem specifically of this moment. From our lives. This is a show with questions about policing and crime and race, but it is set in the world that feels very much. Not This Swan. How do you think about the way that those shows make us ask those questions or answer them when one is that in this world and one is not right. That's a great question because I'm just thinking about just myself as an audience member that I do feel like I receive things that are provocative or that makes me WanNa talk about them later. When? There's humor involved. So I guess this is very similar in that way. Like for example I saw a slave play. Okay, we. Need, I've been hearing. May Look. That's a perfect example of what you know I'm talking about. The. And similar to watchmen in a way. The like I don't no one knows they're going in not knowing what to expect. I don't want people to I don't WanNa say, I, hope that you feel this, I, want you to walk out of there or come off your couch. Take it in and just be honest about what you feel. You know and and that's really. The best we can do as an artist. You know having the opportunity to contribute to a conversation to force the viewer to be honest about what they're feeling. Yes. Yeah. A theme in your recent work that I've noticed. You deal with notions of the police state and crime and race and policing I'm guessing you taking rolls over time that speak to that is.
"regina" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"Hey you're listening to, it's been a minute from NPR I'm Sam Sanders. And we'RE GONNA. Mix things up for this show. We're taking a much needed break this week, but we still want to leave something. Good. So. Instead of our usual wrap of the week's News, we're going to revisit my chat with Actress Regina, King from last year. Regina Kane has been in the business since she was thirteen way back in the day, you may recall her role as Brenda Jenkins on the classic NBC Sitcom to seven. After that, she just kept on working John, singleton movies like boys in the hood and Poetic Justice other movies like ray consistent. TV, work and voiceovers shows like the boondocks. McCain has stayed busy and kept making good stuff and now decades into her career. The Industry is giving Regina Cain the accolades many things she should have been receiving along. She won two Emmys for her work on the ABC, drama American Crime and twenty. Fifteen and twenty sixteen and last year. She won an Oscar for her performance in the Jenkins film if Bill Street could talk. And just last week Regina was nominated for an emmy for her work on HBO's watchmen. This is the show it's inspired by the graphic novel of the same name where superheroes and vigilantes are outlawed. This show deals with issues of race and policing a lot of things that we were talking about when this interview originally aired and we're talking about those things even more. So today. But with these topics, the show does this thing where flips traditional notions of race and class policing on its head to make its point. In. This Chat Regina and I talk about watchmen and why she gravitates towards work that consistently deals with racial bias and she tells me how she state centered and grounded when the Internet would have her be anything but. Anyway. We begin the interview at NPR. West Yeah back when we could be at the office and being the same studio together. What time? Regina was hunter her fallen off, and we talked about push notifications mostly. How much dislike them? I. Mean it's like Ding for things like pinterest. Exactly. What? They're all off and they've been all offer years. Yes. Yeah. You have to do. It's just like it'll suck you in. It feels like one. These things have short attention spans one hundred percent to there's just so much random stuff on the Internet to get sucked in. Get sucked in. I'm really trying to be better at looking at social media looking at your fee and not having a visceral reaction to something. I Have Not mastered it yet because they've managed to. Pop in like tweets or something instagram posts from things people, you don't follow you and thank you should not care about did not care about or that I get in my feelings like. Why is there etional? No Pancake? Day. Why. Are we doing? Why are we doing this? Why? Why? Why are we doing this? But then you've also Google National Cake Day. What's the most popular? Yes. pancakes come from and then on the flip side I understand national. Tequila Day. So what does that about me? thinking. Big Picture about that. This internet media landscape. Is it harder as someone who makes TV or movies? To get the attention, you want these days because when you're making two two seven back in the day, you one of a handful of networks. They got a good time slot. You are watched. Yes, and now you are not just putting TV on the TV. You're putting TV into the Internet world's full of distraction and you are trying to be someone's International Pancake Day Jackie I'm trying to be number one trending thing. Yes. Yes. Yeah. It is difficult and it's difficult to be okay in my spirit about that. You know that that's that's the thing that I find myself You know that's the tug within me like I feel like, yes, I need to understand that we are in a different day and age. This is the time where social media is what you use to. Promote your project or a cause or whatever. But the reality is I'm not really consistent, and what I do notice is you know you have to be on their. Feeding it so that you can break through off National Pancake Day and everything else. Yeah. You know. But also it's like you are an actress I and I'm guessing you want to spend more time on the craft than yet, but I got gotTa tell you. I'm so impressed with those artists that are able to be on there like all the time in posting every single day several times a day managed to be really great at their craft I. Don't think I'll ever be good at that in what I will say is I'm okay with that. I have gotten to that. That I'm okay. But you know what you do have. Yeah. Skirt. So. Like there is also this kind of thing we're like. It is interesting to see. You in this moment, making the stuff that you're making because as someone who's been a fan of been watching you for a while it feels like something in the last two, three, four years you are functioning in your careers functioning like on all cylinders Does it feel it? Feels, it does feel that way I feel like they're they're of experiences have taken place to lead to this moment as with anyone's life. But I think I've been very good at Learning from my mistakes, you know not Repeating them. a growing from my mistakes or or just circumstances that have taken place. And I do feel like I, move with more confidence. Now, you know and especially in the past you know seven eight years. I think being a mother had a lot to do with Getting me to that space without actually thinking about it without timelessly. Because? I. Have another life been responsible for. N. That's like the number one priority and and the reality of because I'm my son is an only child. Okay. So the reality that not only is he an only child I'm an only mom I'm. So I'm learning justice, he were growing together and growing together in learning. Through his is. allowed. Me To think in. A more selfless way or also you have less time to get caught up with the pet with. Yeah. Exactly. In in thinking of like gain that confidence being a little better, just being you in this world in your craft. It almost feels like you would not have been ready for a role like the watchmen a few years ago. I wouldn't have been ready for a lot of things. You know like a lot of people ask me. First of all I believe that I love the saying that a we make plans in God lash. There, they. Get. True. And netflix comedy special. Telling you. Yes. And thank God, you can look at it. Thank you guys. You know. I'll have people ask me you know. Do you feel like? You were you should have been recognized here should have.

I think I think it was a high school. My friend's father used to call me Regina Belle and now it's like this like the year the time of the religion and so it's a wonderful thing that's funny because I feel like the same unlike growing up never met any other Regina's and I guess I didn't embrace how unique unique that was. There were a lot of middle name as everyone. Angela Renee Gene Air. I was the only regime. But you know latrice Rene Karen a a lot and it wasn't until you know the WHO. We Love Regina Belle.

Hey Regina spiked it shout out so today we're here for your December cover story your fourth essence cover this. This is the third time I've seen you in the third cities as I saw you in Atlanta and New York. Press Dunkin for watchmen. We're GONNA talk about this. Is Your Third Solo cover your fourth essence coverage as you did like a twentieth anniversary with a bunch of the ladies back in the day. Remember that all the different college I did. But so then there's more because did essence cover with Jamie Foxx in Carrie Washington us for rain. This year I'm wrong. Oh my God this is your fifth as your thought about that right now because when you were doing I was thinking about about the Jamie carry one and then white then when you said the one with the clean is Michael Michelle Shell. Yes telly bearing. Yeah I was like. Oh my God. The raiders. mind yet. That one was actually have that photo frame nine. Oh my God I have out one of the outtakes from that a photo shoot Jada 's Jason Senate who had just recently became Jada Pinkett Smith? I think it was only a couple of years or in and It's a photo with the cameras up above in. We're all looking up into the camera and it's that one of my favorite photos that have been my office. Yeah Yeah so along with your cover is now you are Angela. Abrar Weisman and your looming all over the city every city in this poster. I think I'm going to dress up as you. I may be the way I would love that. I told Damon would be Damon. Lindelof creator of watchmen series. I said if I just see one photo of someone dressed up as we won. You know 'cause we literally premier like eleven days before Halloween and so that posters everywhere. It's like so tell me about Angela. Abor our house. She came to be. Oh my Gosh If anyone anyone is familiar with Damon trajectory the comic book series. The graphic novel watchmen became part of his DNA. He ready it for the first time in his teens. And it truly Just inform the writer. He would be if you are a fan of loss if if you are a fan of leftovers then you know you see you have read. You've watched how he that that influenced his style all of rioting and he Turned down doing this series twice before where we are now. Because he's like there's there's no you can't you can't remake perfection A. Why would I do that this disrespectful then a finally on the third ask ask He said what if the credits are going up. On the watchmen series and my name is not up. How am I going to feel about that? And that was one of the Things pushed him towards doing it and then he said well give me pause to let me find what what it is and he found what it was by going back to the graphic novel You'd viewed red tunnel icy coats case for reparations. That had something to do with trying to fine. What is that looming thing of today? That the Cold War the threat of the Cold War played in watchmen the comic book series. So that's how we got here. And then how I became involved is as he was building it figuring Out with that story was he created it The story being centered around a black woman. He has this rule rule to never cast a person that he's worked with before and then another project Belong Sir Short. He broke that rule because because he felt that I was the right person to embody Angela a bar and he sent me the in Aden sent me. He had the script delivered for the pilot because it was such top secret and he wrote this lovely note saying this. Was this thing an minute. I didn't know about this. He doesn't cast someone in the next thing. Rule average decide He has me at. Hello the factor because my experience with him on leftovers leftovers was incredible and So yeah I I knew I was GONNA say yeah pretty much before I even read it because I just know I know the writer that he is and I know the show runner that he is and I know the collaborator. That he is a new that I would be allowed to take ownership and and that's something that I look to for years now. I have experience with John. Ridley you know with John. Wells and Bittermann Christopher. Christopher Chu Lock on South Plan you know so Once you started out having that experience on Southland that kind it led me to a space of knowing that if I don't feel like the processes collaborative then I don't WanNa be a part of it you now So who is Angela era. Angela uh I really feel like she's kind of a a representation of All of us in all of us. I don't mean just all black people I mean all people I don't mean just all women are truly mean all people because once you you tune in to just even the first episode in you'll see along the way and it will also be indicative in other characters as as well. She wears a lot of masks. You know we see in the trailers commercials this sister night so we know that that that is one of her masks. The obvious mask but when we meet her we think we're meeting Angela. A Bar and then little few minutes later we we meet the other man ask Am I. Guess I'd say that the that got a woman we meet our little deeper into the show. That's probably the closest to the essence of Angela's because she's most comfortable dribble most In her natural skin with her family with her man. We're going to talk about So we're talking about here right now. That's a nice little Yahya Abdul Mateen sack ars leg. This is me. Yeah doing amazing amazing. He's in amazing women. Being he's the best work has been you know Someone can have the best Partner is is an artist to Build in a scene with into Not over talk assine but Get get into the nuanced moments In a scene Dive into the odd little things and said I think the audience sees but it's not in the dialogue in that comes from chemistry of actors. Obviously it starts with the writing and directing but the chemistry between the actors and the respect for the art form If it's mutual with the actors in with the I committees that and I didn't even realize he headlines Right before looking at it like oh he said did he just flow spray. Tina's husband gear liked it. Yeah so you never wanted to call she. which isn't new for? Are you here. But it's interesting. That whole being of number one kosh she'd and people have that talk talk about that so much and I guess I just. I'm old school. And kinda come from a space of There are no small parts arts. They're just small actors. That was something that was said to me. Early early early. Mateen's you know maybe even pre teens means and that stuck with me so Something that my acting coach back then bridges. WHO's top bridges? Meyer Oh yeah yeah in. She said that early on just that never left me so when I hear that understand that people are saying that out out of respect in in in and they feel pride in that in that position but I'd say that did I don't give anymore than I gave. When I'm any other number on the call sheet well? That was the first prime I sense. Sounds because not only are you the number one number one percent of the cost that you are one of three Oscar winners on this show keep that which is fears ears fierce so and I think what makes it even more fears is it's one of three Oscar Winners winners that you still know all of our names you now off. Sometimes you like oh well. Who is that person? They want an Oscar in nineteen such such can you just. You don't remember their name but there are people they may not have even seen a Jeremy Irons or Lou gossett junior movie. But you say those named when you light all heard that name before so I don't know why that makes it more significant for me for some reason because it says something about these actors in their careers in how they've navigated them. That Dave remain relevant. You know you to it including myself so correct me if I'm wrong. I think you said that. When when you won the Oscar you were going back to Atlanta? To work on watchmen right one and then yeah so we were all screaming screaming of course but what did you feel the second before you one in the second after you heard your name. Do you remember. Well I won't say the second seconds before I I remember even watch the Oscars before an Kudos to the team. The men and women in stand beside me. They never reminded me that best supporting actress. Whose first up and so I just you know? We're having a good time. You know arrive here. Settled in the seat and white dress and theater ask you know and you know in my an amy.

"Off shoes. Boy You pledge yourself which a non assets I I don't know. How are You doing this Regina? I'm doing well excited to be here your first time. Like guesting on another podcast. Are you serious? Yeah I believe you're such a natural podcast conversations my house. That's a travesty. Thank you thank you know. I'm super excited to be here. Been like such a big fan of your podcast and I feel like I don't know I just I love listening to you speak. I feel like the podcast is just obviously like a great way. I mean we have known each other only for a few months but I feel like every time we talk. It's just so real and raw and genuine. I feel like I've known you forever. I feel the same way. Well it's funny because I've been listening to your podcast with Christine perfectly imperfect. I've been listening to that for quite a while so I feel like it's that same feeling of like we know each other feel. I've talked with you and heard your thoughts and feelings for awhile. Sounds interesting feeling of connection which I appreciate but no. I've had so much fun getting to know you. Regina this shoutouts off the Mike Girls because this was a great connection. Oh yeah definitely definitely yeah. Well we're here. This was actually something that I wanted to do for quite a while even before off the Mike and it was just further solidified by events where you got to host such a great conversation. I heard it from multiple people about body positivity and just knowing more about what you've been going through as a person as a professional I stopped me so great to have you sit down and talk with me on first of all okay because it is something. It's a topic that you know. I think any person can relate to yeah yours truly for sure And I'm just curious because I couldn't be part of your breakout session. I was curious like how that went for. You like what you guys talked about there. So the first time we ever even brought up this topic of light body positively or just like body. Consciousness was in an episode. We did for perfectly perfect also like way way in the beginning and I remember. I had such a hard time recording. That was my first time really actually owning up to it because I've always grown up like a little curvier than other girls you know. I'm not necessarily plus sized but you know girls got a booty and it was always like really hard for me to buy. Clothes made me feel really self conscious to like constantly compared to other Asian American females. And so I think that it was so hard for me to record that that even as I was editing. I ended up opening up more like ended up editing like recording separate clips and then having that inserted in because I felt like I wasn't tripping as true and open about my body image issues like that. I grew up kind of struggling with so that was like my first kind of intro into just like kind of talking about it more openly. That's because that's such a public way. You know what I mean if you've never even say in a private setting between friends like really even acknowledged it to go. It's like going zero to one hundred pretty quick so I just wanted to take a second sorry to interrupt but just commend that because I think it's incredibly brave like honestly I don't know this whole podcast situation. Just getting to know myself in my thirties. And even before that which was like being aware of like your own truth as as cliches that sound but like knowing yourself and knowing how you are y you are the way you are. The total is a big deal. You know so yeah I mean I feel like that's how I feel about my own podcast where I feel like I'm diving into these topics where I'm like Ha. I didn't realize that that behavior stemmed from. This is why I think the way that I do so I am very grateful for that and yeah I think that with this. I think that the outreach to that from the community after you do talk about these like really hard hitting topics like that was super encouraging to just hear like other people's struggles that they feel the same way and the thing is like everybody has some sort of warped body image issue. I'd like you know even my friends who I think are. Oh so perfect. They're all like Oh. I hate my hips. I hate my Blah Blah. Everybody has that about themselves. And I think that that's what I wanted the session to be about where it's like a lot of these perceptions that we have about ourselves are the most negative thoughts that we think about ourselves one hundred percent not in like but the thing is the problem is is that we project onto other people and whether that's dating friends meeting. New People like I remember sometimes like in College. I would wear like a skirt. That's like a little tighter. Maybe my stomach showing a little and I'd be like Oh my God. You know this guy that I'm meeting right now. That's probably all he sees that which is consumed me. Oh my God. I looked terrible. I feel terrible and it's probably not even what the other prisoners thinking in the first and so we always build up this idea of who we are in other people's eyes when in reality that's just how we think about ourselves. Oh totally and it's like that's the all consuming nature of these insecurities. Should they go in my opinion? This is my opinion but like should they go unacknowledged they they start to really run the show. And that's the part that I think has been so maddening about that whole process of becoming more self. Aware is recognizing because it is a very for me at least. It was like a super humbling infuriating realization of like how much these decisions or these into not decisions. Honestly I wasn't deciding I feel like these insecurities these beliefs or these are straight up this board at like paranoia right really delusions of grandeur. Whatever you WANNA call them. I don't know what the proper a psychological term is but it ran my life. You know and in part still kind of does which still pisses me off in like a noisy. But I'm just really trying to reconcile without which is why I care about having these kinds of conversations because it does help to hear that I'm not alone in this. Play this issue and this feeling of like you. Sometimes you like. You're crazy person because you can't ever just chill you're not for me. At least I just. I couldn't relax 'cause I'm always in my head about it. Yeah and your mind is just thinking about all the negative things about yourself not even just about body image is like oh. I don't like the way I said that I don't like the way that I wrote that. I don't like the way that you don't like it's it's all consuming and I feel like that so much so negatively affects your self esteem and the way that you via the way that you view yourself the way that you even put yourself out there. You know like even a work situation friend situation. I feel like when you start thinking about all these negative thoughts. You don't put your best self forward for and I love what you said about acknowledging the fact that you have these insecurities. I think that was huge for me. I think in the beginning I was always like why do I feel this way? Why do I have these like negative thoughts about myself all the time in? Why my projecting that I'll to other people. I think that when I was able to really hone in on like okay this stem from growing up in an Asian household where Asian family members not just parents which is of like. Pick at your body like. Oh yeah they take liberties. Yeah exactly right. It's it doesn't even phase them. It's like asking about the weather. It's like Oh you've gained weight. Thank you you're so bad. Yeah my yeah exactly. And it's like such a mixed like ward cultural thing too and I remember when I was little like one of my great aunts used to like love to like like slap my arms and my thighs us like so bound. C. And she's like Oh.

Now's good by the end. But I think in general the performances in this movie are quite good. This was the first movie. I saw Lindsay Lohan see freaky Friday until after this because I watched this one. And I was like I this is she's let me watch more of the stuff that she's that she's been in. I really really liked her performance here. She has a couple of little tiny things that she does that. I think is reserved for a very good actors or actresses like when they're sitting down at the table that first time and Regina George house. Shut up, and it's just shut up against didn't hadn't say the way. She says that it's just It's so. just so packed with with. Meaning she's really good at being. Startled and confused and kind of the vessel through which we learn the world, she she is very good at the fish out of water part of it. I it is funny. She addition she really wanted to be Regina, George Lindsay Lohan handed, and I don't think that she could she can't pull off mean girl as well. As to my cat. It's thank God that they cast it the way it did because some of her plastic stuff. And again, I think this performance it's good because she's not quite selling it as well. And she's not supposed to be right? You know, the point of this is that that's not who she is. And she's not comfortable. But yeah, man. She's no, she's no Rachel mcadams. And that department definitely not Lindsay Lohan as she becomes more plastic and has the worst haircut is so distracting. Hannah's so hideous. I if I had a daughter like I would just be like the no clear getting a haircut right now. She has such beautiful hair. And then it's just these weird little bangs. It's also the foundation shade that they're picking for her does not work, which the. Yeah, it looks bad which the character. It's so rough many of those clothes and certainly looked much worse than them. Looks back. Full skirts, man. We did that moment. I had flash proliferation of like, spandex jersey, close skirts shirts, so bad. Also, the layering that she did what she actually looks pretty good. And I think I did that might hire freshman year of college like like a T shirt on top of very hang Tom..
