The plastics industry uses pregnant women as spokespeople to promote the image that plastic is “safe.” This is a VERY important interview for everyone who uses plastic wrap or plastic food/drink containers to view. If we know the tobacco industry was knowingly poisoning people for decades and lying about it, why would we assume the plastics industry was any different? And why is Amy Goodman some of the only news reporting we’re probably gonna see on this today? Because the same media apparatus is at work. Sobering.
American newspapers just seizing the opportunity to have a little fun with slavery. Totally accidental and/or harmless.

The last two I could write off as just lazy editing
The first two? Motherfuckers playing games
All of them are intended to demean. You could shorten the film title to “12 Years” just as easily and actually more descriptively, but throwing the word “Slave” around with “master” and pictures of Lupita Nyong’o is a way of re-emphasizing how US society views Black people.
