Perhaps there should be a section at Giant Eagle or Whole Foods (or any other supermarket with a bakery) that’s solely devoted to racist pastries. Racist donuts, racist cookies, racist pies, racist cannoli—a one-stop shop for all of your bigoted baked goods. You could even have racist bakers who specialize in flakey…

There is, I believe, a conversation that could be had about an unease we (black people) might have with the Obamas’ post-White House relationship with money. And not just with money as a tangible object, but in surrounding themselves with it and being ensconced in markers and signifiers of it. The word “Obama” has…

2018 midterms, halfway to hell, midterms 2018, white people white peopling -

In the weeks before the midterm elections, America was rocked by three separate acts of domestic terrorism. One, which took place in my hometown, was the deadliest act of anti-semitism in American history. Another was the biggest mass assassination attempt in American history. And then there was the killing of two…

Sentient vat of recycled Great Value Wite-Out Megyn Kelly appears to be losing her job very soon. Perhaps it will happen while I am typing this sentence. (Did it?) The straw that broke this racist camel’s back, of course, was her awkward and illogical and just dumb-as-the-fuck defense of blackface Halloween costumes

titanic, titanic ii, white people white peopling -

To my knowledge, I have never wanted to be white. I have, on occasion, pretended to be white, which is what happened sometimes when I worked at a telemarketing firm for almost 11 hours in 1998, hawking subscriptions to Redbook and Better Homes & Gardens. It has also happened when I’ve needed to call customer service…

Racism, once again, reared its ugly head in the form of a pasty-faced colonizer who had the nerve to call an elderly black woman he was seated near on a flight an “ugly black bastard.” And despite this display of verbal abuse the man was not, I repeat, was not, removed from the plane for acting the way his face…

black people, racism, valerie scogin, white people white peopling -

There have been and will continue to be calls for Valerie Scogin — the Louisiana school teacher who essentially called black people lazy animals who should go back to Africa—to be suspended and/or fired. These demands have merit, because not only is Scogin racist, she got her “facts” from a MAGA fortune cookie. And…

You know that feeling when you drink a drink that you (frequently) drank as a young adult—Hpnotiq, perhaps (or maybe even the Incredible Hulk)—and you’re shocked and horrified (and impressed) by how terrible it tastes to you now? Well, that was me Sunday afternoon, after browsing channels and somehow landing on The

It would be wildly disingenuous to claim that I was disappointed in The New Yorker editor David Remnick’s decision to feature sentient barrow of racist cat jizz Steve Bannon at The New Yorker’s fall festival. Because that would mean I still possess the capacity to be disappointed by white people, and I do not. I am,…
