The three stages of doing homework

The three stages of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ season

Some of us have a very childish attitude. You hear some Black people say, “I don’t look at color.” “I don’t see the world in color.” A person victimized in terms of their color and they don’t see it. And it’s such a foolish, illogical statement. It’s sort of like a child that closes it’s eyes, and because it doesn’t see believes it’s not seen. And so we often think because we don’t see color, the world doesn’t see us as colored. And because we don’t see ourselves as Black, the world is not going to look upon us as Black. Foolish, stupid kind of thinking.

And so they have some people who think then, if they don’t see themselves as African, or they don’t see themselves as Black, they’re not going to be treated as Black, but that very case itself illustrates that problem, doesn’t it? It’s like some people who think they get degrees they’re going to be protected. You know that kid that got killed the other day in the park? And a lot of people were alarmed, “Oh, he went to a Black private school and he got a full scholarship,” as if that would had stopped the bullet. And so those of you who get these degrees, when these people start attacking you, do you think they’re going to stop and ask you, “Where did you get your degree from?” “DMCC, let me off!” No, no. They’re going to see your Black skin and they’re going to lay it on you the way they lay it on anybody else. As a matter of fact, if the system works right, it’s going to be the educated ones that get it first.

Akira Kurosawa: We had a tube running from underground up Nakadai’s leg to over his heart with fake blood flowing in it. When the compressor’s stopper was released, the fake blood shot out of Nakadai’s chest. [Script supervisor Teruyo] Nogami got covered with it. The residents of Gotenba who were watching thought that Nakadai had actually been stabbed. I’d explained earlier about the shoot, but when I said, “Cut!” one guy was waving his arms in shock. His face was white from shock and that scared me. I thought everyone knew what to expect.

Tatsuya Nakadai:  I remember it clearly. [Teruyo Nogami was] counting down for us, and when [she] reached 25, we were supposed to draw our swords. As soon as I drew my sword and Mifune cut me down, I felt this impact in my chest. I wasn’t expecting it to be that strong. I was told it’d feel like a pat from a girl. I felt a thud, and everything turned red… The force nearly knocked me over, but that would have ruined the take, so I hung in there, grasping my sword… Then I fell like I was supposed to, and Mifune finished his part, and then Kurosawa called out, “Cut!” He said, “We got it in one take!” And I thought, “What do you mean, ‘we’?” [Laughter]

Rock Newman on The Phil Donahue Show sharing his experiences as a black man who has passed as white. 

I remember watching this show and falling in love with him and his strength. He is still in the movement fighting for People to Recognize that Racism is all about who controls the power dynamic.

yep. This was actually a ‘program’ started by the Fascist/Catholic regime in Spain during Franco’s dictatorship. The idea was to steal babies from ‘left leaning’ parents, poor single mothers and sell them to right wing parents. The Spanish Catholic church has been quiet about this, but there have been dozens of protests and lawsuits. Investigations are still going on. There’s a really interesting documentary on this, I’ll have to find it.

This is another reason why I have zero respect for the Catholic Church in Spain, or Franco sympathizers.

Here’s the scenario: two children, one white and one black, walk into an exhibition filled with portraits of white people. Both children enjoy it. After the exhibition they make self-portraits out of food. The black child asks for brown ingredients – cocoa pops, hot chocolate powder – to represent his skin in the portrait. The white child does not bother with colour in the same way. Her whiteness is not a colour that needs to be marked or thought about, it is naturalized as normal, a seamless part of the wall-to-wall whiteness of the surrounding exhibition. On closer inspection the portraits show further nuances of colouring and also commonality. Other features such as nose, lips, eyes and hair were not represented mimetically. As the brown skin colour of the portrait on the left stands out because of its purposeful colouring, it creates a link between the child and their artwork, making visible what is taken for granted in this space – whiteness.



hollywood sure has an easy time finding brown and black people to play terrorists, thugs, drug dealers, gangsters, servants, “barbarians”, hypersexualized or desexualized caricatures but all of a sudden you need a lead role and


gosh where did they go i swear we put them here right after zero dark thirty??
