    Couple questions going into the finale.

    !. So does Ford really not know what's going on with Maeve?He seems to be well aware of most things in the park,or is there just too much going on for even him to keep track of shit?

    2. Is Stubbs(The security guy) a host?

    3.If Ford is against the hosts finding consciousness why didn't he destroy all the hosts involved in the incident?Why is he seemingly helping the MIB?Why doesn't he try to stop him?Why isn't he stopping Delores?

    all this

    my biggest question, if ford is against the hosts finding consciousness why didn't he destroy all the hosts involved in the incident 35 years ago? and why is he helping them to regain consciousness in the present?

    otherwise, from what I gather Arnold is dead. and Benard is just modeled after Arnold...Ford then taught him Arnold's mannerisms

    Hmmm.....just watch the feelings fly.

    The writer can get the D and that's about it (this is me being nice and not exhibiting feels), but the comment section is pretty interesting. As usual it's divisive, the women are saying outlandish bullshit, niggas are responding with logic (from what I've seen). Typical day on Black Internet...

    Someone called them Ovarian Americans... :joy:

    I gotta use that shyt!!!

    Issa was wrong

    But can we all agree that Lawrence contributed to the breakdown of the relationship

    Also Lawrence "corrected" the issues that plauged the relationship. He got a retail job only to get his dream job right after. Idk about the bedroom part, but lawrence cleaned up after episode 4 and beyond.


    according to issa he'd been trying to get his shit together for 4 years

    that takes a toll on a relationship

    she could have left, but that is easier said than done after investing so much time and energy into a person

    but lemme stop

    issa is a thot undeserving of forgiveness who didn't deserve Lawrence, right? lol

    Meh...unknowingly.

    Remember Issa wasn't communicating the issue she was having wit the relationship to Lawrence. She went to everyone else but the person she's in the relationship wit. So in his eyes, everything was all good. And when he tried to get her to talk about what was going on, she went mute.

    Yea she didn't help the situation at all

    But nobody is gonna be cool with their mate bumming around the crib all day, going from job to job while he or she is out trying to keep the bills up to date

    And I picked up her body language around him first episode she wasn't happy

    I gotta rewatch, but I think he also forgot her bday

    Plus I remember Issa telling Molly he was slacking in the bedroom, they weren't going out a lot

    Again Issa was wrong for what she did....But they deserve each other


    B-day I give you...everything else is on her.

    The one of the main things I took from their situation, is that it starts with communication first & foremost.

    All that assuming the other person will eventually read your mind, hopefully figures out why you're unhappy does nothing.

    That's the burden black women bear tho. Cuz I was on the "issa ain't shit" wave before Daniel for not communicating effectively...but y'all gotta realize she was carrying the load of the relationship financially and emotionally.

    Lawrence was probly feeling emasculated he couldn't even contribute to bills and shit like that, let alone take his girl out for dinner regularly and do nice things for her... and a lil depressed cuz he couldn't get his app off the ground....so how do you, as the support system for this black man, broach the subject of "I need you to do more" without coming off as the nagging angry black woman stereotype on one end, but also knowing that by doing so, you're more than likely just gonna push him deeper into his funk by pointing out where he's fucking up? Cuz if you do that and push him away, that sacrifice you made to hold him down goes away with nothing to show for it. No thanks, no severance package, no card, no pat on the back...I see why she bit her tongue for so long even if to her detriment.

    At the start of the series they were both checked out emotionally. Carrying the relationship while watching your man bum it and sit in his feelings for however long takes a toll on you....and so does trying to do something that just won't work and you can't catch no breaks while you see your woman struggle and bust ass for both of you and you can't help.

    exactly

    no one is trying to give issa a pass or make out Lawrence to be a bad guy

    but I can empathize with her

    she was in a tough spot and she obviously loved him

    That bullshit borders on insanity.

    This video has really opened my eyes to some previous comments on this board about how a lot of feminist really want to emasculate and feminize men. This bitch said they are trying to bring men closer to the middle.

    I'm asking the middle of what exactly?

    @desertrain10 can you watch the video and explain to me what exactly some feminist mean by trying to bring men closer to the middle.


    Manspreading or whatever is popular in white feminist discourse

    But it's just suppose to me an example of how women are conditioned to shrink themselves: we are raised to sit with closed legs, to not talk or laugh too loudly, to not be seen or heard, to take up as little space in the world as possible

    And with men it's the opposite

    This trickles down into every aspect of our lives: from how we sit and where we choose to sit, to what we say and how we decide to say it, to what we wear and how we’re treated

    I admit it's not that great of a example, talking point

    And as a Blk woman I have sort of different perspective

    Growing up in certain environments being direct, aggressive, "loud" etc is a matter of survival for both men and women

    But going a lot of times going into largely white spaces, for Blk men and women, we are punished for it
