Too woke for my taste.

I was looking forward to watching the rise of this wonderful talent. I wasn't expecting a typical "oh whoa is me" racial rant. I stopped watching after 30 minutes because I couldn't stand to hear the self pity any longer. Rita Moreno is a stunningly beautiful woman with amazing talent. She has been famous her entire life. Even today, at 87-88, she is a beautiful and famous celebrity. She made it and she should be celebrating that achievement. I don't understand why the entire documentary had to be about her racial struggle. I didn't see any comments about her struggle as a beautiful young women during a time when men ruled everything. Maybe her struggle was more about her being a "woman" trying to survive in a male dominated Hollywood rather than being a "Hispanic Person". Whatever. It's all in how you look at it. None the less, I rented the film to be entertained and to learn about her career and talent, not to be tricked into watching another woke diatribe. I want my money back!

This is my fourth 3-1 charger and finally this company got it right. It charges my iPhone, AirPods, and iWatch all at once. However, be aware that you supply your own watch charger which you attach to this 3-1 charger. Works first time every time.
