Reader Roundup


The best and worst comments of the day:

Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Presented Without Comment: “From today’s obituaries: Dignity, Human (dawn of time – 2009).” We say: Hoda killed it, literally. Rest in peace! • Worst Comment Of The Day, in response to More Culturally Insensitive Jewelry, Courtesy Of Elle: “Love you Jezebel, but I think you’re taking offense where there is none. She describes her African jewelry as tribal because… shocker, there ARE tribes in Africa. And using a beautiful black model (illustration or real) with an afro to showcase the African jewelry is more than fitting. What’s wrong with a gorg African woman showing jewelry inspired by her continent’s heritage and style? Relax guys. I’m not seeing an ounce of racial insensitivity here — and usually I agree with you.” We say: It probably isn’t wise to tell black people offended by racist language to “relax.” • The Other Worst Comment Of The Day, in response to Vintage “Jezebel” Products Besmirching Our Bad Name: “My parent’s[sic] actually have these, and I’m pretty sure they’re not meant to be racist. They picked them up in the Caribbean (where my dad is from) where the majority of the population is black. I think it’s just a reflection of the majority race no?” We say: No. Maybe a visit to the Museum Of Racist Memorabilia’s website will explain why.
