Let’s make Kylie a billionaire

Kylie Jenner was recently featured on the cover of Forbes as a self-made multi-millionaire on her way to become the youngest billionaire.  I dispute the statement that she’s “self-made.”Kylie Jenner on the cover of Forbes

Now someone who calls himself “FAT JEW” has started a GoFundMe campaign to help Kylie become a billionaire.

Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don’t want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

As of July 19, 2018, 155 people raised $2,029 of $100.0M goal in the last 7 days,  mostly in small contributions of five dollars.

#WalkAway

#Walkaway is a media campaign in which Americans post videos about why they walked away from the Democratic Party.  What’s cool about #WalkAway is that it attracts African-Americans, whites, Hispanics, immigrants, gays, straights, women, men, etc.  It goes to show you that the Democratic Party doesn’t own women and minorities.

Not surprisingly, people who align themselves with the Democratic Party claim that Russian bots are behind #WalkAway.  It’s amusing that people who were soft on the Soviet Union and communism now regard Russia as Public Enemy #1.  Hey, Hillary, how did the Russian reset work out for you? 🙂

Here’s the video that started it all:

Revlon to launch Flesh makeup at Ulta

MUA Kevin James Bennett posted this to Twitter:

On Instagram, he adds:

In addition to foundation sticks, Flesh will include highlighters, lipstick, and blush — all created to complement a wide range of skin tones.
Flesh will be available online at Ulta Beauty beginning June 24th, and will be on store shelves in July.

Comments:

  • Will Flesh have staying power?  I’m thinking in particular about the stunning failure of Vital Radiance, a line that Revlon created for women over 50.
  • In the 1990s, Revlon had a line targeted at African-American women: I couldn’t find the name of the line (likewise, I couldn’t find the name of the line for which 1980s teen pop star Tiffany was a model).
  • I’m of two minds when it comes to Linda Wells.
    • Con: As EIC of Allure, she ostensibly approved a hatchet job on Paula Begoun. Wow – talk about duplicity.  The reporter ingratiated herself with Paula.
    • Pro: Allure was apolitical when she was EIC.

The Ordinary may be leaving Sephora for Ulta!

Early this year, I posted that Sephora was stocking The Ordinary.

Exciting news!  The insanely inexpensive skin care line The Ordinary is now available at sephora.com.  I hate using the term “disruptor,” as it has become an hackneyed term, but here it…

Allure reports that it appears that The Ordinary is jumping to Ulta. It may be leaving Sephora for Ulta and European retailer Douglas. According to Instagram, it appears that Deciem has some payment issues with Sephora.

Double standards? Starbucks and race v. disability

This is your brain. This is your brain on race.

At a Starbucks store in Philadelphia, cops arrested two non-customers who refused to vacate the premises. This quickly became a race story, as the non-customers were African Americans. Now Starbucks is closing ALL its stores on May 29 to train its employees on “implicit bias,” as though ALL Starbucks employees are assumed to be implicity biased because of this one incident.

In 2012, Janet Marx sued Starbucks for disability discrimination. Her prosthetic leg became loose, and she needed to tighten a screw on her leg. She went into a Starbucks store to use the restroom. A Starbucks employee chased her down and told her that she needed to buy something before she could use the restroom.

Funny, I don’t recall hearing that Starbucks closed all its stores to train its employees about bias toward people with disabilities.

And that’s my white-‘splaining about Starbucks.
