"Some people don’t sleep at night - I am one of those people. These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed - I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise - like a vampire… I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything - I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy - I was the model…"  Stevie Nicks

How do I turn my academic anger into political action without spending years validating it? Also why can’t I outlaw racist team jerseys in my classroom? The total loss of my respect is not really much of a punishment.

in addition,
because history trumps personal experience.

and because being ‘just a human who loves humans’ can still get me fired in the state I live in.

and the past lives in everything that is is

kept seeing conservative people from work posting the Raven Symone and Opera video so there were red flags but then… oh no. what happened.

not another thing white ‘colorblind’ conservatives will be able to latch on to as more ‘proof’ of their neutrality.

colorlessness is not a thing. No one gets the benefit of being borne straight from the primordial sludge.

(perhaps it is just one celebrity who said a thing) but I am trying to write a lesson about the racialization of slavery and reading a book about the essential illegalization of blackness in the low country south and this is really just burning my britches.

Roxy decided that she needed to be in the photo

This makes me laugh so hard. Like a photobombing bird torpedo.


Congratulations on your recreation of the classic surrealist painting Man in a Bowler Hat by Rene Magritte (1964)

oh my god.
