No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information,
including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.


YAAASSS Bitch read ha!!! Let ha know!!!

alright what i really need to be doing is taking notes on this whole “drama” process so that I can go ahead and start writing this libretto in the fall. I’ve been marinating on the idea of an opera about the Tulsa race riot, but I’m also thinking of having moments of non-linear time that can include interludes or interjections from systematized violence against Black USians from other eras. There’s a certain type of surrealism/non-linearity that can work really well in theater (and similarly, can work really well in Opera) that I’d like to figure out how to tap in this libretto and score. it’s gonna be a lot of work, and I’m gonna have to buy a lot of books.

Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

Fifty Shades of Grey:

The result of a publishing company taking GOD-FUCKING-AWFUL and HORRIFICALLY-MISOGYNISTIC Mary Sue fanfiction seriously. This is the one time I’m okay with massive book burnings, and cinemas being torched as well. Boycott this shit and companies need to STOP publishing- and filming horseshit fanfiction. Those “authors” are shamed into the most distant corners of the internet for a reason.

Maybe not book burning but I agree we at least boycott the shit out of it!

Oh yes

Let’s shame young amateur authors for being fanfiction writers and blame them on the horrors that is 50 Shades of Gray and not, you know…

The culture of misogyny and rape all those authors happen to be raised in and that many of us actually do try to escape from. And let’s also talk Mary Sue shit as if the whole Mary Sue bashing didn’t have any misogyny involved.

Let’s also not mention that the reason that fanfiction is “shamed into the most distant corners of the internet” is because fanfiction is heavily female coded; meaning that when people think of fanfiction writers they imagine a SILLY TEENAGE GIRL WHO WANTS TO SEE HERSELF REFLECTED IN HER MARY SUE MARRYING HER FAVORITE CHARACTER!!!!! FUCKING FANGIRLS!!!!!!

Yes, that’s what must be done.

Shame teenagers out of writing. Most of whom in the case of fanfiction writers are girls or queer youth. Yes, let’s shame them and blame THEM for this.

Instead of.

Promoting safe and consensual sex, whether kinky or vanilla.

And teaching young authors who may or may not write text soaked in what the culture they live in has taught them, that there’s certain things that aren’t as cool or desirable as the media paints them to be.

Rape culture abolished.

There’s a movie coming out called Addicted, that was rushed into production to capitalize on the hype for Fifty Shades.

But Addicted is itself based on a novel… a professionally written, traditionally published novel… that bills itself as “the novel that paved the way for 50 Shades”.

But yeah, let’s blame this all on fan fic writers.
