"So much of being Black in America is seeing things that no one else sees, or wants to see. Sometimes, it turns out, there is indeed nothing there. […] And yet, many conspiracy theories are eventually proven true. The late Detroit mayor Coleman Young used to always say: “Just because you’re paranoid, don’t mean ain’t nobody out to get you.” Black people all over the world know that there are people out there who mean them harm and have a vested interest in writing off their claims as craziness, conspiracy theories, fantasy.

Thomas Jefferson did father Sally Hemings’s children; the CIA did help introduce crack cocaine into America’s inner cities; those doctors at Tuskegee Institute weren’t healing those Black men infected with syphilis; white folks in New Orleans, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. were plotting to reclaim neighborhoods from Blacks. The Chicago Police Department and the FBI did execute Black Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark while they slept."

just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out. 

these are fantastic!  i’m so excited to see femmepowered and open gates MHC create a similar campaign at mount holyoke.  i know both colleges are worried (to varying degrees) about reactions from alumnae, but this alumna supports you—and trans women’s inclusion—100%.

Before pursuing stand-up comedy full-time, Hari Kondabolu was a human rights activist. At first telling jokes was a cathartic release from the intense work he did with victims of hate crimes and workplace discrimination. In today’s interview he recounts how he began to incorporate aspects of his work into his comedy: 

"I used to do a bit where I used to read the U.S. citizenship application onstage. I think that’s part of just being overeducated and wanting to do document analysis, but I’d actually bring it on stage and read questions. Because for people who don’t know, this is what immigrants have to go through to gain status in this country and it’s absurd and it’s something we take for granted as American citizens.
Sometimes that was hard in a club on a Friday night and it’s 10 o-clock and everyone’s drunk and there’s a dude on stage reading a form, it’s a strange thing to read a government form in front of a bunch of drunk people.”

Hari’s new comedy album is called Waiting for 2042.
