I don't believe that happened.

Feels believable enough. I remember when people thought my wife was our kids' nanny. Repeatedly.

That might have more to do with their thinking she married down if not the nanny.

HAH! But they were people who didn't know me.

Yeah, her dad is of German descent. So she and her brother look Hispanic, and it was roughly 50/50 for our kids. My genes are strong

Chicago appoints special prosecutor to go after Smollett who is suing claiming "double jeopardy".

I thought double jeopardy only applied when the case actually went to trial? Foxx, who was found to have ties to Smollett, simply dropped the charges. They can be re-filed...I think...

I mean, if not, how fucked is the law? There should be exemptions put in for corruption and/or clear incompetence.

I'm kind of hoping they find some charges to bring against Foxx. She should probably be disbarred, at least.

I reported the latter person for racial abuse. We'll see what twitter does.

The tweets that follow in that thread are an amazing mix of continuing the joke, racism, confusion, and people who don’t know who Tatania is at all

2 of the 4 tweets I reported for breaking twitter's rules were removed from twitter. The other 2 were not. And her account is still there.

Robot racism? Yes, says a study showing humans' biases extend to robots

Imagine what the headlines would be if we start making black robots that we force to do our bidding.

CNN is hacktacular!
