  • DomiMami

    Up early refreshing my memory on what exactly is up for grabs today.

    Taking my kids with me to teach them how our Democratic system works. It IS NOT rigged (well, not for Donald Trump).

    Please vote today!

    • LMNOP

      About to take my kid with me too, our polls open in 5 min.
      Let’s do this.

      • DomiMami

        Done dealy!

      • HoobaStankyLeg
        • Valerie

          *saves gif* This made me chuckle cause I love saying Yassss.

          • HoobaStankyLeg

            My Grandmother used to say this often. Not sure when it turned into ‘Gay Vernacular”. I always thought it was an old church thing.

            • Valerie

              Me either. When I was growing up the older ladies used to say “Yassssss pastor” when they agreed with what he was saying., didn’t know what it meant. Now I find myself doing it at service lol

              • HoobaStankyLeg

                I thought it was just me. That, and ‘Get behind me, or not today Satan.’ But apparently those old negro spirituals belong to gay culture now.

    • KMN

      couldn’t take my kid this early but she’s expecting me to pick her up from school early to vote…”Mommy we have to go vote today!! Don’t forget to get me!!” LMAO…I love that 8 y.o. kid.
      She also had me glued to Nickelodeon watching their polls and vote the other night. Apparently the kids of the US don’t want Trump to be president either.
      Handle it y’all

      • DomiMami

        Yes! Through us, our children learn the ways of our world!

        I’m glad they are interested!

      • Cleojonz

        They really don’t. My daughter’s middle school did a vote and Hillary got 73%. Maybe we should let the babies vote lol.

        • KMN

          Yes ma’am…they seem to have more sense than these grown folks do lolol

    • Cleojonz

      Y’all are brave. I wasn’t taking my animals. They have seen the process though, my mom has taken them before. They might go today with her again.

      • HoobaStankyLeg

        Being protective of this racial climate is understandable.

      • DomiMami

        Girl, the little effers didn’t want to wake up! The Hubbs will take them when he goes.

        Mine are 11, 13, and 15 so the are easy to control than when they were younger! So I totally understand you not wanting to taking them!

    • Vitianagary

      Proud day… MY KID WOKE ME UP TO GO VOTE! My daughter is a sophomore at University of Cincinnati (yes… the school that has one of its police officers on trial for murdering an unarmed black man smh). She was up at 6:30 am with her FRIENDS going to stand in line to vote… “Pretty girls VOTE!” is their slogan and I couldn’t be more proud! This madness that is Trumpland has brought out the best in our youth! If only we could get PE to make another album these young people would really be turnt! Our youth are out here in Ohio voting!
      Oh yea… one more thing. I had an older white couple talk to me while I waited in line to vote. They “announced” to anyone within earshot that… “All white people are not racist and we do not all want Trump to win… Just because I don’t have a Hiliary sign on my car doesn’t mean I want that racist bigot to win… that’s my two cents…” and other white folks chimed in agreeing… it was very interesting… They’re pulling back now that they see he won’t win.

      • DomiMami

        I’m now in OH too (Columbus) and yes, young people are out in droves This morning! I am proud to see it!

      • HoneyRose

        But it’s true, and not necessarily pulling back. I live in WA state and I don’t know a single Trump supporter. Most of the people around here seem appalled that he’s gotten this far and stunned that he could get close to winning the election. I have an older white couple that lives next door to me and in our first meeting they told me how they used to march and participate in civil rights protests in the 1960s.

        The truly racist ones are simply racist, but there are very large proportions who are not.

  • Sweet Ga Brown

    I’m sickened by this election and I truly hope for better. I recently moved to slightly rural NC and I can’t imagine living here and having Trump as president. I pray HRC wins for so many reasons and I was/am a Bernie Sanders supporter.

  • Leggy

    I pray HRC wins. I live in Texas and I work with so many trumpsters and I want them to lose so bad.
    Yesterday, one of them came up to me and told me that he voted republican down ballot, except for one, which he voted libertarian because “the guy has no experience and no offense, he’s black”.
    So this man chose me, the only black person on my floor to tell me he didn’t vote for someone because the person is black, I shrunk a little and I honestly almost burst into tears.
    I told him that he’s a hypocrite because he voted for trump who has literally no experience but won’t vote for a black guy who doesn’t?
    I can’t bear it if trump wins and I have to see their gloating faces. I really can’t. My nerves are wrecked with stress. I really hope HRC pulls through. The way they hate her so much is enough for me.

    • “…I really hope HRC pulls through. The way they hate her so much is enough for me.”
      The way they seem to speak so freely, you should be more mindful of how they hate you. Get your vote on. I don’t even know you, but I’m rooting for you.
      I sure hope they don’t pop off at my gig today.

      • Leggy

        Oh, I know they hate me. I work in oil that’s very mediocre white men dominated. I can’t change their minds. I just want this result to bring them great pain.

        • Ha!
          You and me both.

        • mr. steal your costco samples

          ayo, energy is trash. them 2520s literally stumble over some isht in the ground and are like “i’m a business genius son” PA is full of these bozopreneurs.

          bro take there will be blood off your OnDemand rotation you ain’t drinking nan milkshakes you just got lucky.

        • grownandsexy2

          If HRC’s wins (and I’m sure she will), ole boy will likely double down on the comments, but if you gotta shed a tear, go in the ladies room. Don’t give him the satisfaction.

        • Valerie

          I worked for an oil and gas company for an internship, so yeah girl I know.

        • Mr. Postman

          You probably work twice as hard as any of them. If there’s any other people of color at your job, they surely experienced the same thing and y’all can file a complaint or lawsuit together. You’re paying a heavy black tax and you deserve a refund.

    • I’m fairly confident you have a HR claim against dude.

      • Leggy

        Probably. A lot of my friends have said the same but short of someone calling me the n word, I really don’t feel comfortable reporting. This is a boy’s club, not trying to shoot myself in the foot.

        • mr. steal your costco samples

          reminds me of that one lady Trump had run construction. She wanted to say a lot but couldn’t due to industry

          • It’s about positioning. I worked construction once and the only woman there was in charge. We did as we were told.

            • cyanic

              Completely unintended from your end by that sounded like the beginnings of a sexy story.

              • I can’t help it. I’m saturated with sexy.

                • cyanic

                  One woman in charge of an all male crew where you better do as you’re told. I was so envious.

                  • She was a jerk though and sometimes tried too hard. One day she bought us pizza and beer. At noon. This dude got drunk and mooned a tour boat. I was hilarious.

                    • cyanic

                      Had to overcompensate being the sole minority in charge. Her position is only enviable in the adult fantasy version.

                    • Aicha7

                      Is this a satirical comment meant to mock sexist attitudes towards women in male dominated professions or are you really that lacking in self awareness?

                    • No, it’s an honest assessment of her behavior.

                    • Aicha7

                      She was either a jerk or she tried too hard. Couldn’t win for losing and you’re talking about her buying beer during lunch time like you’re the only construction crew in America that doesn’t drink before 5 and how could she not know that. All the construction crews and skilled trades on every job my husband ever worked regularly had men drinking at noon. And the women were always considered bitchy when they focused on work and sneered at for trying too hard when they tried to be nice. And since it’s all a bunch of men who agree with each other that she’s just not quite 100 it turns into a circlejerk where they must be right because they all agree with each other.

                    • She was a rude person in general. I’ve worked with women in male dominated industries with no problems and no disrespect because they were women. The beer and pizza was a one off to quell the various contractors who she constantly berated. As a result of her efforts, a group of Canadians on a little tour boat saw a full moon in the daytime.

        • Lea Thrace

          Does your company have an anonymous ethics hotline?

        • grownandsexy2

          This pissed me off just reading it. If HR is like a lot of places, they will deflect and dismiss as in “are you sure that’s what you heard?”

          • HouseSublime

            Never forget that HR is there to protect the company not the employees.

          • Valerie

            “Are you sure that’s what you heard?” Yup especially when it comes to sexual harassment.

            • There was an NYPD officer who secretly recorded his superiors ordering his squad to beef up arrests of black men in their community. He got canned quick, but the NYPD is having a VERY hard time explaining the existence of the records.

            • grownandsexy2

              It’s things like this that enrage you and then they wonder why we go off as in (riots) when we get pushed over the edge (Ferguson). It’s the everyday BS that builds up.

              • Valerie

                Exactly and we are just supposed to grin and take it. NO!

                • grownandsexy2

                  I asked a white guy in the office just last week if he was familiar with James Baldwin’s quote “To be black and conscious in America is to be in a constant state of rage? If so, our experiences in the land of the free about sums it up. In fact, I’m feeling rageful right now. The look on his face. lol

          • Janelle Doe

            or “don’t take everything so personal; sometimes it is not about you”

            • grownandsexy2

              Yep, “you’re too sensitive.”

        • NonyaB?

          But you should document it in detail because whenever you decide to complain in future, a pattern (several incidents) of harassment is more damning and hard to dismiss. No harm in quietly getting a free consultation from labour/EEOC type lawyer so that at least, you know how best to document and proceed if the time comes.

          • BrownKitty289

            Good luck w/ that!
            My mom just went to court through the EEOC w/ a cellular company that rhymes w/ “dent” regarding: racism,ageism, and sexism. She had to settle out unfortunately. These companies have everything sewn up and they know how to screw you over legally. My best advice is for you to find a better job and exit b4 you take action in court and they blackball you…#smh GoodLuck, again!

            • Scout Wellsrain

              Yep. This is why I don’t hire nigs.

            • NonyaB?

              I think you meant to reply to Leggy.

        • I would just quietly gather evidence and then lawyer up. If it’s as pervasive as you say it is, this is an easy discrimination lawsuit; and as an oil company I’m sure their pockets are deep. Do you know if the recording laws in your state are one or two party consent?

        • It doesn’t hurt to create a paper trail. But the courts are not on your side and the EEOC is understaffed. If it gets to be a pervasive issue you’re better off looking for a new job while you can still get a neutral reference. Best case scenario is filing an EEO complaint and getting a few months severance in mediation (less if you’re not in a white collar job with several years’ experience). Taxes will be taken out along with 20-40% for your lawyer so by that time you’re barely breaking even. You *can* file an EEO complaint just to make a record and not take it to court, but the potential for getting blackballed in your industry is real if management is petty. (Disclaimer: I’m not your lawyer and you shouldn’t rely on this comment as legal advice).

          • PinkRose

            The EEOC will trash a case before they support one. And this is the Maryland office I’m referring to in case anyone is wondering.

            • I heard they have some kind of ratings scale and if it’s not a definitely winnable case, they won’t take it past mediation.

              • PinkRose

                Actually they have a sabotage scale where they purposely look for or create reasons to throw a case out.

                I honestly think it ought to be closed down because even if you do win, the fact that you had a case against them is googleable. And retaliation IS real.

                IMHO, a better option would be for Black Attorneys to step up their pro bono game and rep folks having “issues”.

        • PinkRose

          Don’t report unless you already have your next job lined up.

          • Leggy

            Not planning to. It’s easy to tell me to report when you’re not in my shoes.

        • Yeah that’s a sad reality of Corporate America. You should still document it though.

        • fedup

          Girl, get a notebook, start documenting everytime something even closely resembling this interaction happens, with dates, times, locations, etc. Go to a counselor, and start telling that person as well. Build your case quietly. Then, when its time, have an outburst/or a breakdown, walk off, then go out on disability claiming stress. Then, turnaround and use ALLA that to file a suit for harassment and racial discrimination.

          Tellin you this because I have some really unscrupulous folks that I have to call kinfolk, and it kills me how they constantly get over at jobs using exactly this method. If it wasn’t for a complete overhaul of the personnel where I work now, trust and believe I would have used it. They got lucky because the witch I was gunning for left on maternity leave and never came back, then a sea change of staff.

        • Scout Wellsrain

          We hate you because you hate us. And there are WAAAY more of us, and YOU ARE SOFT. YOU THINK U R HARD. BUT U R ALL BITCHES. The fun is just beginning, nignogs!

      • Cleojonz

        Agreed. This sounds like harassment to me.

      • PinkRose

        Not if she wants to keep her job.

      • Scout Wellsrain

        FIRST place a dindu mind goes. Those days are rapidly coming to a close.

    • La_Dee_Da

      Leggy, I am rooting for you too! After this is over, you still have to work with these people.
      Keep your head up and don’t let them see you sweat!!

    • Blueinverse

      That guy is an asshole. I’d have told him mediocre white opinions don’t exist in my world therefore I ain’t hear chyt he said.

      • Diego Duarte

        Trumpanzees are only acting confident because they think Clinton is going to lose. Watch. The minute HRC is announced as president-elect they are going to become furious and start foaming from the mouth. They’ll blame minorities for stealing the election through voter fraud, and they will almost certainly assault many.

        I’m certain there’s going to be at least a couple of Columbine style shooting before the end of the year. Probably around mosques.

    • NonyaB?

      WHAT IN THE ENTIRE FXCK. So enraged on your behalf. A pox on his mediocre existence and that of his family for several generations to come. May he sh*t maggots and suffer from incurable wand dysfunction.

    • Go to HR.. report him and use “harrass” , “targeted and discriminated”…those words carry legal ramifications and your company doesn’t want a lawsuit.

      • PinkRose

        Big companies don”t give af about lawsuits, EEOC is backed up until the next century.

    • Sirx

      And when she does, please purchase every bit of “President Hillary” and “I’m with Her” paraphernalia that you can get your hands on. Bring it in with you every day, set it up on and around your desk, and take it home with you every evening. You don’t have to say a word to anyone :-)

    • Mary Burrell

      That upset me just reading that. What a deplorable.?

    • truthseeker2436577@yahoo.com

      Many of those Trump supporters are bigots and extremists. Keep on living your life. The words from haters don’t matter.

    • Scout Wellsrain

      Chugging your dindu racist tears, bitch

    • Shitzkin Jones

      BUWAAAHAAAHAAA the gravy train has run out niqqers.

  • Livewyre718

    Taking my daughter to vote before I drop her off at school. She’s 7 and this has been out little tradition for the past 4 years. Having a black president for the first seven years of her life and hopefully a woman for the next 8 shows me that progress may be slow but it’s there.

    • LMNOP

      Yay kids and democracy!! ?

      • PDL – Cape Girl Shero

        GMA just played kids’ comments. Soo cute and innocent.

    • panamajackson

      Listen, my daughter was born a WEEK after Obama’s first inauguration. I was SO PRESSED that she was gonna show up after he was inaugurated so she’d be born in a country with a Black president. All my kids were born while Obama was in office. And I’m happy about that.

      • cdj

        My son was born Dec 2001, and I was happy he was here, but also feeling guilty and depressed like, “What kind of f’d up world did I bring this kid into?” Fast forward to the beginning of Obama’s first term. I was tying My son’s tie so we could get ready to go to church or a funeral or something. I finished and said, “You look handsome.” He was super cute (not saying he’s ugly now, but the little kid cute has worn off), so he heard this often and he said, “Thanks, mom.” Then I said, “You look just like President Obama in that suit.” He didn’t say anything, but he smiled and stuck his little chest out so proud! I’m happy that our kids were able to have our President as an example of class, intelligence and grace.

  • TeeChantel

    Thank God for early voting last week. I’m laying in bed right now, like:

    • Im jealous Tee. I can’t go until after work. I know they’re going to be watching returns alllll day here.

      • TeeChantel

        Oh dang, I hope you get to beat those lines, Pops!

        • I’m leaving at four. They shut down at eight. Plus, if you’re already in line, you’re good.

          • TeeChantel

            Good – at least you get home early and watch the sheninghans later tonight.

    • HoobaStankyLeg

      There with you. I do my voting by mail.

    • HouseOfBonnets

      Same I voted two weeks ago, done in less than 15 minutes.

      • HoobaStankyLeg

        Bonnets!!! Wait, I been looking for you!!! But you are all together and in one piece so my joy knows no bounds!

        • HouseOfBonnets

          You know I’m not gonna leave you hanging boo lol I’ve been out of town for a summit and i’ve been running like a chicken with her head cut off because I was planning and presenting. But I’m back just in time for shenanigans.

          • HoobaStankyLeg

            Well I was looking for you over the weekend. When I didn’t find you, I was ready to cut me a mother-father! How’d the presentation go… If you don’t mind me asking?

            • HouseOfBonnets

              it went great we had Deray as our keynote :)

              • HoobaStankyLeg

                *Faints at the news of all this awesome, then wakes up simply to slap a high-five and congratulate you on your excellence*

    • Maestro G

      I ain’t in bed, but I sure am glad I am not in line, either. Got that done in H-Town over a week ago. Now just praying I don’t wake up tomorrow in a police state or dictatorship.

      • TeeChantel

        Yeah, voted last week as well. I was not beat for the standing in line to vote because it can get hectic and with the abundance of Trump supporters where I live, I did not want to run into any arguments! I’ve come to terms with whatever outcome we see tonight.

        • Maestro G

          I’ve also come to terms with both possibilities, but got my passport out just in case I awake tomorrow to the nightmare scenario and get in my feelings.

          • TeeChantel

            LOL but where do you plan on going though?

            • Maestro G

              Spain, since I pretty much speak the language now. Or perhaps the UK, since I know folks there. Just gotta keep my options open, ’cause if Darth Cheeto wins, hard times may be on the horizon for POCs!

    • mssporadic

      Not in bed, but I live with the calmness that I don’t have to participate today. I’m going to bed at 10p and will deal with fallout from this election tomorrow.

      Also, it’s Taco Tuesday!!!! Feels very apropo today.

      • StillSuga

        Tacos and tequila does sound attractive for the evening…

    • I started to vote on the weekend and the line was down the sidewalk. Came back at 3pm on Halloween and was done in a snap! #earlyvotingFTW

  • LMNOP

    Swing state voters, here’s an underdog, because we need to go high. Start swinging!

  • Matt Genné

    At work and in life, I meet polite, nice-seeming folks (mostly men, all white) who will twist themselves into knots to avoid facing the truth: Evil is on the ballot today. I try to talk to them about it. I say, it couldn’t be clearer. The Republican party got in bed with Trump and made this election about racism, hatred of immigrants, & hatred of women. That a vote for HRC sends the message that matters most—that instead of hate, we Americans choose to love one another. Here’s hoping a few of them listened.

    • I’m gonna say, that the people who are nasty today, and the days leading up to today – have been nasty all along. It just manifested itself even more with the elections.

      • cdj

        Agreed. Trump’s hate speech has emboldened these racists to be out and proud, where before they would only talk trash with like minded people (or go to work and ask black co-workers dumb a** questions about politics, our hair, or how many kids we have – then feign ignorance to why this is offensive).

        Im not sure if I can deal better with their passive aggressive racism or the resurgence of the bold racism. I know some say they’d rather know up front who they’re dealing with, but some of these white people are dangerous.

        I don’t know if you saw the video of the white guy in Memphis, leaning into the black guy’s car, saying, “Trump all the way!” And spewing epithets. This was at our local mall, just 5 min from our house. The neighborhood is racially mixed, but I suspect only bc the white people can’t afford to flee (we are working/middle class). Combine that w their sense of entitlement and ignorance, and you get this palpable resentment. The aggression is new (to me) though. I feel like Trump lit a match, threw it, and things are smoking/ smoldering for now. All we need is the wrong confluence of events for these racists to explode.

        I have always been scared of guns, but lately I have been considering qualifying for a permit, for my and my family’s safety.

        • mr. steal your costco samples

          ayo if that dude was in my neighborhood I’d tool up too.

          this boldness is terrifying.

          • cdj

            And even though the more moderate white people like to make excuses – “He’s sick/mentally ill/a jerk”, it’s obvious that the guy is your run of the mill racist. I know he is not crazy, because he didn’t drive to North or South Memphis talking sh*t, otherwise we would have been watching him getting dragged on a World star video instead.

            I am looking for a place to qualify. Unfortunately, the range around my way is frequented by Trump types.

              It’s TN — can’t you buy like a GTA style arsenal? I’d be open carrying the rocket launcher.

                Lol!!! I guess I could! And wave it around like Made a, so no one gets out of line.

        • “All we need is the wrong confluence of events for these racists to explode.”

          Absolutely.

  • Veronica G.Ochoa

    Why all of this fear? HRC was going to win at all costs. This is just scare tactics 101. Google made it so with with their SEME technology in 2015. This election was all a pre-orchestrated algorithm…. I felt the Bern then got burned by the reality of my surroundings. #knowyourmasters PS two words Shirley Chisholm..this is not HISTORICAL, she was.

    • It is too early for this silliness. If the election was already settled then Republicans would not of spent so much resources on suppressing the black vote in NC or passing voter ID laws designed to reduce the Democratic vote.

      You have no evidence and your views are deeply disrespectful to the citizens who have had their suffrage curtailed and denied this year.

      • mr. steal your costco samples

        yup

    • Other_guy13

      Don’t be salty….go vote

    • HouseOfBonnets

      Look up moral Mondays and John Oliver’s voting segment from feb…….and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.

      (Mutters “all of this info yet y’all still dive head first with false info…..”

      • Veronica G.Ochoa

        False info? No. Salty? Nah…just not willing to drink either Kool-Aid. I have been living with oligarchies for over half of my life…Shirley Chisholm was the first female presidential candidate and not even Jay-Z is going to make me vote for her. I have a right as a reluctant American to NOT vote. She’s going to win…and you can have your historical pantsuit. If the DNC platform nonsense wasn’t a wake-up call to what four years with her is going to look like…don’t say you weren’t warned and let her be a one term president please. We get it we were historical, great. And it’s both parties involved in the voting mess from the level. The DNC is not clean either, when are we going to see the truth? Margaret Thatcher Part 2. And the orange Cheeto? This whole Democratic process has been disrespectful to anyone who pays taxes or wants to believe we have a voice or say. The positive outcomes are people are mad and those figures will fade out and hopefully become a footnote…he that shall not be named for the fact he has already ruined us internationally running as the public face of the RNC. The RNC is over…this is the true victory.

        • HouseOfBonnets

          I never said either party was innocent or that the democratic process was fair I simply said look up the the info form all sides like I have. Your five page essay on feelings wasn’t necessary dear.

          • Veronica G.Ochoa

            Ya’ll….I will be turning in my citizenship in T-2 years on the real….I do not have the same love affair with being American….peace..and pantsuits.

        • mssporadic

          So you don’t care about your local initiatives either?

  • Other_guy13

    I voted last Monday…i’m just here to watch at this point

  • QueenRaven23

    Woke up early, went out to vote. Not a lot of people at my place this morning. A member of the ACLU was sitting outside greeting us, which was cool since I’m a member of the same chapter. A lady said something snarky while we were talking but it’s whatever.

    Anyway, so it looks like the Sega Genesis is coming back out!!!

    • Other_guy13
      • QueenRaven23

        I’m super excited. It looks like production and release is just for Brazil, but if it’s a good sale, we may get it here.

        • Other_guy13

          Still I like that they are even still around. I hope it leads to a new console that drives the price of the Xbox and Play station down…that would be nice

      • brothaskeeper

        I just shouted that.

      • Blue Skies Bring Tears

        SEEEGA!! Oh, the mem’ries! I never did manage to defeat Dr Robotnik.

        =(

        That reminds me: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/26d22d06be316a8fc173abbe130c1f07c9d6413e331558723bdf2664539ddbb5.jpg

          this is a case study of Beardfishing in action.

    • TeeChantel

      Sure is. I picked it up Sunday. There’s about 80 games on the system. Sonic, Altered Beast, Shinobi, Mortal Kombat. Pretty dope.

      The retro Nintendo is coming out on Friday. I’m getting that too.

      • QueenRaven23

        Aw cool. The website I was reading said that it wasn’t released in the U.S.

        • TeeChantel

          The Sega Genesis in Target, along with the retro Atari. There were quite a few too. I was really surprised. Perhaps A lot of folks don’t know about it yet. Nintendo will only be available on Target.com, not sure when it will be available in stores. I was harassing those Target store employees; they were gonna tell me all the info I needed to know before I walked my black a s s out the store lol

          • brothaskeeper

            I need an Atari! My brother and I used to destroy the joystick, until my sister wanted to watch her shows, and that always killed our progress. The kids just don’t know.

            • TeeChantel

              Yes, get it! The system costs about $50. Now, it isn’t the system we’re used to– it is more of a compact system with built-in games. but the feel is just the same. Man, when that Nintendo comes out on Friday tho…. whooo, I’m going to be so hype!

          • Medium Meech

            There is one in Target, but little information about that one…

            http://kotaku.com/no-sega-doesnt-have-its-own-mini-genesis-1784350008

            • TeeChantel

              This is the system I have. I haven’t had any issues with my system though. It is a mini system with the built in games, and unfortunately, I don’t think we’re going to get the same system we had growing up, but I was always here for Sonic and Altered Beast, so all is well over here.

          • Blueberry01

            Staples is also selling the Sega console, too.

      • DomiMami

        I’m all about that Mario Bros life!

        • TeeChantel

          BOUT IT, BOUT IT!

      • Cleojonz

        Yay I know what kid persons are getting for X-mas!

        • TeeChantel

          Yay! Exciting!

    • DomiMami

      I’m ready for some Sonic!

      Then I will walk around in life randomly singing “Seeeeeegaaaaaa” because the game intro will be stuck in my head!

    • TheUnsungStoryteller

      Are you serious??? THE Sega Genesis???!!! YASSSSS!!!! (Add that to my Christmas list…)

    • The Genesis is back! Something positive on this dark day! LOL

    • Cleojonz

      This is cool. I will buy this. Its the last game system I was really into. We have wii and barely play it, I never buy new games. Sega was the best.

    • Epsilonicus

      I have an emulator box with all Atari, NES, Super NES, Sega, and N64 games
