I wanted to do this before but couldn't finger out how to post this video of David Alan Grier:

It sucked. I am not sure if I will ever be able to appreciate art that is almost entirely dependent on the creator's personal experience with very little craft applied beyond that foundation. I get that stuff can be historically/culturally valuable but maybe assign that in social studies instead of English class?

I've got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I've got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
'Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You're all that I can call my own.
:|

Invisible Man was hard for me to get through in high school but at least Ellison was a real talker.

I know this also goes for a lot of my Berkeley experiences, but holy hell some of the stuff you say is just so hard to imagine. This class of person really exists?

Ha! That's a little bit different... pandering to a specific audience, right?

To be fair, Tarantino grew up poor in a black neighborhood AND he's trying to sell some shit there.


I don't know what to say about this other stuff.

I was only talking about the Clinton case. No way does she do that shit if there aren't black people around! It's something totally different if a person puts on a persona in the absence of the people who they think might find that relatable.

true story

ignorant ass friend working in a book store in ny in the late 90s didn't know who maya angelou was or what she looked like. maya is scheduled for an in-store. maya walks up to her at the info desk and wishes to be directed to where she is supposed to go by intoning poetically "Where aaaaare my books?" like the smooth chocolate bard she is. friend goes "I don't know! what type of books do you like?"

the end

FUCK!

if she really did that... FUCK

but maybe that's just a stupid marketing account that she has/had little-to-no say in, whatever, bad move on someone's part

in my workplace, almost everyone has a phd or will soon, and even then it's the biggest fucking joke if you acknowledge your degree. like, one guy has firstnamelastnamephd@gmail.com and it was received as supreme comedy

everyone here knows she sucks, febby, but I appreciate the need to vent. I imagine your FB could be maddening right now?
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
