I just retweeted Kim Kardashian. I feel weird.

But then, this block of tweets, amongst all the yammering about her product lines, is weird in a way I approve of:

FWIW, there have been a few times before when she said or did something I approve of, and even times when I'd sympathize with her over her critics. One thing I recall (vaguely, and don't feel like looking it up) -- she married Kanye West so, while Kardashian and her sisters are considered "white" by American racist standards, her kids most certainly are NOT. And sometime after she had her first baby she started saying things to the effect of "I'm learning that black Americans even today face all sorts of discrimination which whites do not" ... and people criticized her for not knowing this already. (Seems like a counterproductive way to run an outreach program, if your standard welcome greeting is "You should've known this already!")

I appreciate the more enlightened Kim K., and I don't want to come down on her too hard because I think her heart is in the right place. But the "did you know we don't let people on parole vote" thing is...kind of silly. I mean, parole is part of your sentence. People who are on parole aren't just randomly being fucked with; they're still working off their sentences, and they could often just as legitimately still be in prison. (That said, the larger issue of "why don't we let felons vote anyway" is worth discussing.)

I think you need to grade KK on a different scale. She's not so much making a point, and tending her brand.

The only really good thing on twitter (occasional Nick Mullen gems aside) is a quick interaction with Jesse Walker on country/roots rock.

Eh, from what I've seen I'm inclined to believe she is sincerely trying to make the world a better place. After all, her "brand" as I understand it was/is about clothes and fashion and jewelry and hanging out with celebrities and otherwise living a luxe lifestyle, all of which have exactly fuck-all to do with trying to improve things for the worst-off members of society. It's not as though Kardashian's newfound "wokeness" consists merely of things like "Here's a photo of me looking hot at some $5,000-per-plate Poverty Awareness fundraiser ball."

Yeah, and? It's a perfectly reasonable thing to argue that disenfranchisement shouldn't be part of that punishment in California. There's every combination of "no disenfranchisement at any point" to "you better get a pardon if you ever want to vote again" in various states. All of four states, including California, specifically ban parolees from voting.
