Yesterday my advisor informed me that once classes are over, which is next term, I'll be expected to be in the lab about 50 hours a week. My first emotion was relief. I mean, fuck, just 50 hours? And I don't have to teach over the summer? HELL YEAH.

That is the same reason, by the way, that so many white people think the original Black Panthers were a hate group analogous to the KKK.

Sounds like a guy who's not "full of shit" to me.

The point I was making by posting that is that even MLK, the man you are so twisted in a knot over seeing criticized (the same criticism, by the way, that many many Black civil-rights activists have also levied toward him) recognized that violent protest was the inevitable result of having peaceful protest ignored.

And chew on this for a second: why is MLK lionized, while Malcolm X is demonized? There is one big reason. One really, really big one.

MLK is more palatable to white people than Malcolm X. He's the soft-serve version of the 20th-century civil rights activist. Not that he was not a great man, a great leader, and a great orator -- just that the story of the civil rights movement (the one that earned me the legal right to exist, mind you, as more than the forbidden effluvia of sinful abomination) is much broader than the one white schoolchildren are spoonfed. The school system pushes the narrative that this one nice kind peaceful Black man changed everything for his formerly violent stupid people.

That is NOT the real story. Not the whole story, and a lie by omission is still a lie.

So, sorry you're fucking trapped in your own culturally-instilled sheltered (and at this point, wilfull) ignorance. Read a book or something.

My eldest child is hollering at her friends in the MMPORG she's playing, so loudly that despite being at the other end of the house I can hear it as if there are no walls between us.

Which there aren't, mostly. Because for some reason this bungalow is laid out like a shotgun shack.

I can take a screen cap if you like.

Is it worth it, or are there 28 other news stories exactly like it on other news outlets?

Apologies, I am ashamed I didn't understand your intricate social commentary. In hindsight it's clearly hilarious.

Things. For sale. In a supermarket! Ho, ho, ho, Oh what a world. Aren't I the silly fucker for not getting the joke faster! What will those crazy people in retail think of next? Whatever it is I'm sure you'll be there to point out the sheer absurdity of it for us.

Omg. What the fuck is wrong with you. Who the fuck puts mayo on tortillas? White people. Tortillas are mainly in the Hispanic section of the supermarket, which is not where stereotypical white people food is stored. Would you be this fucking pedantic about foods next to each other in a food store if it was fucking chocolate syrup next to tortillas? Or stacks of peanut butter next to bacon?

Mmm, mayo on a dry corn tortilla, authentic Mexican cuisine at its finest.

I really wish you weren't coming across as spectacularly racist right now.

Sorry for coming across that way and thanks for pointing that out to me

YW

Friends gotta give friends a heads-up.
