Her wit backfired and created one of the greatest awards show moments ever.

That moment Jennifer Lawrence was the one able to sexually harass Jack Nicholson. And it worked.

it’s funny, people will generally allow you to have an opinion on goods and services that you consume

like I’ve never seen anyone respond to, say, a negative review of a sofa with “if you don’t like it then go build one yourself”

and yet if you express the desire for more/better representation in media someone always shows up to tell you to write something yourself

People of color often believe that there are safe places and that academia is one of them. But I find that academia is sometimes even more a place where race is dismissed or invisible or regarded with suspicion. In an intellectual arena, the rock and the hard place people of color are put in is the place between silence and killing rage, a place where it hurts to keep quiet and it can hurt your career to speak up. It is a place determined by the majority context, where either choice is self-defense.
