This speech by Jesse Williams from the BET awards show is going around my FB feed. Mostly young, former students, minority, generally apolitical young adults. It's striking to hear this strike a chord with so many of them.
If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest in equal rights for black people, then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down.
It's a very good speech.
Also Simone Biles' floor routine is blowing up my FB feed:
Ed to add: White people love Biles, according to my feed, I should say. Not the same people as love Jesse Williams.
At my work, we have open office seating, which is so obviously horrible that I'm not even going to google the ostensible rationale for it ("collaboration," probably, which has another, and entirely appropriate, valence). People talk to each other at full volume, they have phone conversations at full volume, and one clown even took an hour-long conference call while sitting across from me. Yes, of course I use headphones, but I remain morally offended. As far as I can tell, there are no offices anywhere. My manager's boss's boss sits a few rows behind me, and I haven't seen any offices when I've been on other floors. No wonder so many ISIS recruits are young professionals.Comments (189)
Which is the more appropriate Brexit video? In the first one, the guy could well be dead, which maybe is to be determined in the case of Brexit. The second one is a great example of the impotent rage boomerang, but it lacks the neat "exit" of the first. Tough call! We need a strong leader to help us decide.
