Must be nice being black without having to deal with all that pesky racism.

Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black

That's enough, Morrissey.

Don't care.  I still pay scalpers top $ for the best seats to his shows and would pay $10,000 for two good seats to a Smiths reunion.

Is that the chubby baldwin or the bald baldwin?

It's a black t-shirt conspiracy

You would piss fewer people off if you just said 'fark it' and ate a Big Mac halfway through your set.
 
2017-03-16 01:54:12 PM  
Hopefully, every white person wearing one of those will get beat up.

The guy from Firefly?

Yes Morrissey with his white guy charmed life can relate to a gay black intellectual who wrote amazingly heartfelt books about his life in the 40s ...
 
2017-03-16 02:04:32 PM  
Morrissey continues to be one of the worst people whose music I greatly enjoy.

Yeah, I can't see any way in which this shirt might be misinterpreted if worn in public.  Unless you're white?
 
2017-03-16 02:14:56 PM  
Ironic that the shirts themselves are white.

See, I'm on the other end of the spectrum.  I don't care because I've never cared for the Smiths or Morrisey.  I wouldn't attend one of their shows if it was free.

Farce-Side

What?  A comment in response to mine from a Morrissey hater that is not insulting or rude?  I like the way you expressed yourself.  Well done.

/knows how he feels


Now see, that was a different thing, and a different time. She was (and seems still is) trying to co-opt a system that is in place to help those who didn't have any advantages. fark that biatch. She has no redeeming value as a human being.

Johnny Otis on the other hand lived in a time that made a need for that system, and rose above it. I don't think he ever told anyone he was black, and certainly in his older pictures he wasn't pretending. He just chose to live that way without making a big deal out of it.

But yeah.

fark that biatch.

what does that have to do with morrissey selling a shirt?
 
2017-03-16 06:33:58 PM  
Wow. I didn't think Morrissey could become any more of a pretentious douchebag, but...here we are...

I hope they get Leslie Jones to lay him on SNL.

I would pay good money for a Smiths reunion without Morrissey. With Moz? I'd charge about a grand.

/Maybe more. And I would have to be able to bring a cheese dog.
