Craig Hodges: 'Jordan didn't speak out because he didn't know what to say' | Sport | The Guardian
a.k.a. don't be like mike

"In October 1991, the Bulls were invited to the White House to meet President Bush.
The assault on King remained fresh on his mind, as did the US bombing of Iraq that January, and so Hodges wrote an impassioned eight-page letter to the president - on behalf of 'most specifically, the African Americans who are not able to come to this great edifice and meet the leader of the nation in which they live.'

"[Hodges] wore a dashiki and George W, the president's son and a future occupant of the Oval Office, spoke slowly as if Hodges might not understand English. 'Where are you from?'

"'Chicago Heights, Illinois,' Hodges answered, amused at the way in which W's excitement at meeting the famous Bulls, which had him 'bouncing around like a kid' at his father's workplace, had disappeared into startled incomprehension."

I’m a black actor. Here’s how inequality works when you’re not famous. - Vox
"I looked around the theater and realized there was not another black face besides my one fellow actor. There was no one, in any position of power or influence, who would immediately understand what kind of position I had been put in by this actor ad-libbing hate speech at me onstage."

Lisa Buscani poems.
"I said, I've been working far too hard for far too long. And he agreed, and I wanted him to fight it, and was disappointed by how light he was. Smiling, so ready to fly. I felt light, too, but it was the way you are before you catch a cold, all unfocused and buzzing. And the chill comes from inside."

Now Shia LaBeouf is Plagiarizing Kenneth Goldsmith - Gapers Block Book Club | Chicago
"...regardless of whether LaBeouf truly believes in his #stopcreating philosophy of appropriating pre-arranged words and art, Goldsmith has unwittingly given intellectual ammunition to an already controversial celebrity refusing to cede the last word to his critics -- regardless of whether or not he has any original words to say."

Why Don't Black People Protest 'Black-on-Black Violence'? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
"There is a kind of sincere black person who really would like to see even more outrage about violence in black communities. I don't think outrage will do it at this point, but I respect the sincere feeling.

"And then there are pundits who write more than they read, and talk more than they listen, and prefer an easy creationism to a Google search."

‘How to tell your friends from the Japs’ in TIME, 1941 vs. ‘Turban Primer’ in RedEye, 2012 – Sixteen Minutes to Palestine
"Two weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, TIME Magazine ran an article titled “How to tell your friends from the Japs”, an arbitrary and insensitive guide on how to differentiate the Japanese from the Chinese. Today, just over a day after the shooting in Milwaukee that left six dead in a Sikh house of worship, Chicago’s RedEye printed a “Turban Primer”, a similarly insensitive guide on arbitrary religio-cultural distinctions between, essentially, Brown people from South East Asia and the Middle East."

all about implications.
