Decidi não ler livros escritos por autores brancos por um ano. E os conservadores ficaram furiosos

(0) Comments | Posted February 5, 2016 | 1:41 PM

Porque nada me dá mais vontade de ler um livro escrito por um homem branco do que receber uma ameaça de estupro de um homem branco.

Li excelentes livros no ano passado.

Li ótimas obras de ficção como Aguapés, de Jhumpa Lahiri, e angustiantes memórias como Irritable Hearts, de...

로맨틱 코미디를 사랑할 이유야 많다. 진정한 사랑의 승리. 공항에서의 미친 듯한 질주. 중요한 데이트를 앞두고 옷을 입는 장면들. 로맨틱 코미디를 증오할 이유도 많다. 너무나 백인 위주에 이성애 중심이며, 너무나 뻔하고, 정말 좋은 유전자를 타고 난 아름다운 여성들이 사실은 잔뜩 꾸며야 할 못생긴 할망구들이라고 우리에게 열심히 말하는 영화들이다. 그리고 걱정해야 할...

Romantic Comedies Teach Women That Stalking Is A Compliment

(4) Comments | Posted January 27, 2016 | 12:10 PM

There’s a long list of reasons to love romantic comedies. The triumph of true love. The frantic run through the airport. The getting-dressed-for-a-big-date montage. There are lots of reasons to hate the genre, too. It’s so white, so heteronormative, so predictable, and so hellbent on convincing us that...

Affirmative Action Is Great For White Women. So Why Do They Hate It?

(2) Comments | Posted January 21, 2016 | 9:47 AM

As the GOP primary rages on, candidates aim to strengthen their electoral chances by stirring up racial resentment, capitalizing on seven years of Obama-induced anger and a sense among white conservatives that “their” country is slipping away from them.

There’s nothing new about using white fear to...

I Decided Not To Read Books By White Authors For A Year. Conservatives Lost Their Damn Minds.

I read some kickass books last year.

I read gorgeous fiction like The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri, and gut-wrenching memoirs like Irritable Hearts by Mac McClelland, and enlightening non-fiction like Asking For It by Kate Harding, and smart beach reads like The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica...

Political Group Will Give Larry David $5000 For Calling Donald Trump A Racist On 'SNL'

(6) Comments | Posted November 8, 2015 | 11:11 AM

One of the highlights of Donald Trump's highly anticipated appearance on "Saturday Night Live" was seeing Larry David heckle the real estate mogul during the opening monologue.

"You're a racist!" David yelled, as Trump stood onstage with two of his "SNL" doppelgängers. "Trump's a racist!"

When Trump asked David -- who was on set to reprise his Bernie Sanders impression -- why he was heckling, he responded, "I heard if I yelled that, they’d give me $5,000." He was right.

"They" referred to, a PAC that earlier in the week offered a cash reward to anyone who called Trump a racist on live television. David's bit was scripted, though the identity of the heckler was clearly a pleasant surprise to the cheering studio audience.

And now, is making good on its pledge. In a press release,'s campaign director announced that the group would reward David for "standing up" to Trump's incendiary rhetoric:

"There’s nothing funny about calling Mexican immigrants rapists, murderers and drug dealers," the statement reads. "You could never get away with saying that about African-Americans, so why is it OK to say it about Latinos? Trump’s attacks on the rights of U.S.-born American citizens calling them ‘anchor babies’ and threatening to tear up the U.S. constitution to strip them of their rights is un-American and offensive. We need to deport racism, not people.”

Trump shrugged off the heckling, and used it as an opportunity to remind the audience of his mogul status: "As a businessman," he said of David's motivation for interrupting, "I can fully respect that."


CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misidentified the group "" as "Deport...
