Have you heard there’s an election going on? All kinds of people are having some thoughts about it. They’re also, incidentally, making some tweets. Last night, we published this blog, thinking rather naively that we’d capture the spirit of the moment. But now that the election is a vast and endless ocean from which we may never be rescued, we realize the error of posting our blog so early, when everyone was still trying very hard to behave. We’ll be updating this post as we all continue to suffer together—if you see something, say something.

LeVar Burton’s response to Keith Olbermann:

Apparently in response to Olbermann’s remarks, Burton changed his profile picture to an image of him portraying Kinte in the 1977 miniseries. He then tweeted, “Dear @KeithOlbermann, #Kunta is pronounced with a long ‘u’ as in unity, not a short ‘u’ as in cup. Try again! Love, Kunta.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Burton added, “I think the thing I didn’t address [on Twitter] that is also important to note is that at the end of the day, whether he was trying to call Trump a name without using the word or not, he still referred to Kunta as ‘whiny.’ Enslaved people were not ‘whiny.’”

Goddamn right, Mr. Burton.

Also fuck you, Keith Olbermann. Just fuck off forever.
