I’m not quite halfway through Palo Alto yet, but I just wanna say this.

If James Franco can write these stories and get away with calling it a book, then I definitely gotta write a compilation of short stories and publish them.
Granted, these stories are supposed to be told from teenagers’ points of view, but is the subject matter so raw and depressing that its fine for it to be grammatically written that way too? I mean are these kids 19 or 9?

I’m going to finish the book and I’m still going to swoon over James Franco on tv because he’s really cute. But I probably won’t support his endeavors as an author anymore.

No disrespect to James Franco. All disrespect to the editor.

The video features a group of unnamed black kids, purportedly from Ferguson, reciting parts of a script that’s clearly been written by adults. A script that will make you think race is solely a black and white issue, by the way. Even if the children are from Ferguson, it’s unclear if or how they’ve been compensated. Either way, the idea that these kids are from Ferguson is paraded for consumption.

Towards the end, a white adult and a black adult make nice and encourage viewers to buy a FCKH8.com T-shirt. Five dollars from each shirt will supposedly go to unidentified “charities working in communities to fight racism.” Which charities? Who knows! What communities? Can’t tell you.

The video concludes with a dedication, “For Mike,” and a quiet scene from the Ferguson street on which Michael Brown was killed by officer Darren Wilson more than a month ago.

The company behind the video, FCKH8.com, has made a name for itself selling what it calls “LGBT Equality Gear” (which sort of covers some LGB themes, but sort of leaves the T part out). It’s now trying to do the same with its “Anti-Racism Gear.” According to its website, FCKH8.com “recently became owned and managed by Synergy Media,” a corporate branding firm whose clients include Magnum bodybuilding vitamin supplements and pretty offensive “Buckeye Boob T’s” (the latter despite the fact that FCKH8.com says it’s anti-sexist).

There’s an entire economy around black death—and this ad campaign illustrates it all too well. Ironically, this economy’s profit margins depend on upholding the very racism this video claims to want to eliminate.

So there you have it, folks. Everything, it seems, can distilled, packaged, bought and sold—including racism.

TLDR: do not buy the shirts being sold by fckh8!

The video was funny and I enjoyed it. So…
