Jamie McGuire’s Sad, Rich, White Life :(

Somebody come help Jamie McGuire’s white son! He is suffering! 

Being a rich, white male is fucking up his life – according to his mother.

I tried to have a civil conversation with her. I had hope that something I said resonated with her. I thought we were really getting somewhere. That was a NEGATIVE! When I went back to her post to reply to something, I saw that wasn’t the case and decided to stop commenting.

One of my blogger friends asked if I would do a podcast about this whole thing considering I’m known for being pretty messy. I have always steered clear of social issues on this podcast because this is a place to discuss books. However, since this is involving a well-known romance author, whose books I read, I made an exception.

Check out the pictures below of Jamie’s original comment.

I’m just going to post a few screenshots in random order from her FB post.

I was moved by Jamie McGuire’s need to help the black community, I set up a GoFundMe page. Let’s see if she can put her money where her mouth is. I doubt it though.

Remember to follow all things messy. . .

    If you are truly disregarding race, it is enough to say, the have a problem which must be addressed. Then you must state the non-racial problem and how you feel it should be addressed. It is enough to say, as mothers we are concerned for our children in this world. It is enough to say we want change and how we think that change should be implemented. Things like mental illness, gun control or lack thereof, and mass shootings affect people of all races. Hate, grief, pain, and death are not a friend to any person of any race. It is enough to say that we pray for the individuals that commit such unspeakable horrors and the families affected by those awful acts.

    The purpose of statistics is to help those who have to deal directly with these situations, ie, law enforcement, first responders, etc., recognize and possibly prevent such situations from recurring. Statistics do have purpose and meaning if used correctly. If used correctly, statistics can be involved in saving lives because they help us to understand the details and help us learn how to deal with and prevent the problem.

    Statistics, if misused, perpetuate, biases, fear, and hatred. One must always be careful when employing the use of statistics. The responsible use of statistics leads toward understanding the issue and problem resolution. If at the end of the day, the stats you quote, rationalize and justify bad behavior; if they evoke bias and lead to anything less than understanding as well as a call to action from people, then statistics have obviously been misused. It is best not to involve statistics if their use is not relevant to the statement, concern, argument or problem.
    I wish more people would remember that.

      I’ll be honest, I have no idea what you meaning is here. Are you talking about mass shootings?

    Just curious….I wonder if her publisher knows they’re representing a racist. So easy to just pop all her bullshit in their DM’s
