One of the things that really bothers me about this thinking is that most really poor people rent apartments and most apartments come WITH appliances as an amenity to help rent them out. Every apartment I’ve ever lived in CAME with a fridge, I’ve never had to buy one.

what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her. and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people.

what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies — runnereight

My [scattered] thoughts on Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer. This was originally just a defence of the film’s ending—which I’ve seen widely criticised—because I think it’s brilliant and necessary and worth defending. But… then there’s everything else.

“…what distinguishes [the Marxist notion of class] from the sociological notion of class is that, for the former, class is precisely a differential concept, that each class is at once a way of relating to and of refusing the others. Whatever its philosophical presuppositions, the sociological view is formally wrong to the degree that it allows us to think of the individual classes in a kind of isolation from each other, with the almost physical separation of social groups in city or countryside, or as “cultures” somehow self-developing and independent from each other: for the notion of the isolated class or social group is just as surely a hypostasis as the notion of the solitary individual in eighteenth-century philosophy. In history also there are no substances tranquilly persevering in their own essence, but rather a relationality and struggle of every instant, in which class is no more free than the individual not be engaged. So it is that each class implies the existence of all the others in its very being, for it defines itself against them and survives and perpetuates itself only insofar as it succeeds in humiliating its adversaries. Thus, to use the convenient but of course very abstract tripartite formula, the bourgeois defines himself as a nonnoble and a nonworker at the same time, or better still, as an antinoble and an antiworker all in one. And with such a relational concept of class, the criterion of genuinely Marxist analysis is given also: it will necessarily imply the shock of demystification in its very structure, it always in one way or another presuppose a movement from an apparently systematic and intellectually coherent, self-contained surface to that historical situation behind it, in terms of which the ideological product under examination suddenly proves to have had a function and strategic value as a weapon of a determinate kind in a concrete and local struggle.

and here we have a white fool (cracker longbackus in scientific terms) in his preferred environment. i.e. invading poc spaces.note the sloppy mimicry, the shoddy attempt at camouflage. oddly enough, the white fool often believes his minstrel show will accepted without question, but as always…he been seent.

stay tuned for the next foray into pathetic crackertivities

99% of the time when someone says “I support LGBT rights” they have gay and lesbian people in mind only and think that the only thing they need to do to support them is support marriage equality.

“With panopticism, something altogether different would come into being; there would no longer be inquiry, but supervision [surveillance] and examination. It was no longer a matter of reconstituting an event, but something-or, rather, someone-who needed total, uninterrupted supervision. A constant supervision of individuals by someone who exercised a power over them-schoolteacher, foreman, physician, psychiatrist, prison warden-and who, so long as he exercised power, had the possibility of both supervising and constituting a knowledge concerning those he supervised. A knowledge that now was no longer about determining whether or not something had occurred; rather, it was about whether an individual was behaving as he should, in accordance with the rule or not, and whether he was progressing or not. This new knowledge was no longer organized around the questions: “Was this done? Who did it?” It was no longer organized in terms of presence and absence, of existence and nonexistence; it was organized around the norm, in terms of what was normal or not, correct or not, in terms of what one must do or not do.”

Michel Foucault, Truth and Juridical Forms (via foucault-the-haters)

Protip for understanding panopticism: the ‘watchtower’ doesn’t exist, at least not in a centralised form - he’s merely using an ideal type here. The panoptic guardian is the individual themselves onto others because the gaze is normalised. Once you understand the individual as being both the product, the object and the subject of the gaze, Foucault’s theory of power quickly begins to make a lot more sense.
