DEI “perversely rehabilitates racial thinking—arguing that seeing race & judging by race is not unjust but a virtue so long as it is done by the right sort of person. [However] stereotyping should be rejected no matter who it comes from.”

Michael E. Langley was promoted to the rank of four-star general in the Marines yesterday, Aug. 6, 2022. 

Gen. Langley credited his father, an Air Force vet.

"My daddy told me to aim high, so I aimed as high as I could and found the few and the proud.”

"Black cool is part of society in general, part of white society. Black cool is the tip of African-American culture’s engagement w/ the broader white culture. Cool doesn’t mean low affect or indifference. It means cool heat, intensity held in check by self-possession."

"Because every person is different, we respond [to the history of racism] in different ways. What the history of prejudice means to me is that I need to be better than that, that I should in no way replicate it—I should not prejudge people based on how they look. Period." 1/2

“Man, most critics feel that unless brownskin U.S. writers are pissing and moaning about injustice they have nothing to say. They find it much easier to praise such writers for being angry (which requires no talent, not to mention genius) than for being innovative or insightful.”

"Murray emphasized that black people’s problems, while certainly local, were also timelessly universal, capable of being described & transcended to the same extent that humans have always dealt with tragedy & chased away the blues."

Although inevitable at this point @midjourney foray into AI generated art is the most grotesque human innovation in history. Art reflects the journey of the artist, and without it, art becomes meaningless. #AIart #meaning #collectiveunconscious

When book burning is celebrated and endorsed by the state television. Canada continues its descent on the slippery slop. Sigh...

A wonderful short animated film describing the surreal movement in Egypt circa 30s. This group embraced their own subconscious and symbolism and created art to challenge the authorities and reject political interference in the arts. What a tremendous inspiration.
