ok so the following is a nonexhaustive list of black studies texts i think philosophers should reading: specifically, this is aimed at philosophers who do not or do not exclusively work on race (to demonstrate the breadth of insights black studies has to offer)

this is actually a constant source of frustration to me. perhaps a silly aspect of global blackness and transphobia to get fixated on, but i love a) being alone b) in the middle of nowhere very much, and it makes me sad that's not something i can comfortably access

about once a month i have this GREAT idea to do a writing retreat in a tudor home in some tiny upstate rural town, and excitedly start researching, and with a slow, sinking sensation, remember that it would be a very bad idea for me *gestures at profile picture* to do that lol

that said, i don't tthink the problem is torture porn: literally have a paper under review about how black torture porn in horror movies is good actually!!! the problem is bad, neoliberal, non-camp torture porn; torture porn trying not to be porn.

Lena Waithe getting as far as she does might be a sign that there’s still little to no diversity in these rooms because there’s no way Lena presented this story to an actual living breathing black person and got the green light.

Afropessimism really is the Nietzsche of black studies: adored by sophomores, reduced to pure cringe with the abandonment of other childish things, and then returned to, with wry humility, by galaxy brains
