I love how people think we should just be happy to pay for everything, even though we don’t have it. I would love to opt out of the gym and football tickets since I don’t use either, but it’s like pulling teeth to get them to even itemize what we’re paying for.

Grad student fees are a problem - often we assume these fees are covered with our tuition remission but they aren’t! At my university they also won’t itemize what the fees are paying for, so we can’t opt out.

“Within a generation of their first appearance in America, Africans were assumed to be slaves, and slaves were assumed to be African. Racial slavery had been invented.”

“[Colonists] extended special privileges to poor whites, such as using them to police slaves - driving a wedge between poor whites and black slaves.”

Slavery was decided to pass from mother to child: “it enabled slaveholders to enslave the children to women they owned. White men could then create more slaves by gathering children with enslaved black Women.” SICKENING.

“Many of the first Africans brought to America were not slaves but indentured servants...But as demand for labor intensified, colonists exhausted the pool of indentured workers and started relying on enslaved Africans.”

Robert got the Penicillin: scotch, ginger, lemon, with a perfumed spritz of Laphroaig and he loved it but I could barely sit next to him lol Would that have suited you?

If we want to diversify academia, then we need to diversify the reward structure. If we want academia to look differently than it did 50 years ago, then we need to define success differently than we did 50 years ago.

Ok didn’t take a picture of it because I’m a monster, but had an amazing gin drink tonight: lemon, lime, green chartreuse, ginger, and rosemary. I must recreate it! So herbal and fresh and tarttttt at Pontotoc Lounge in Memphis. It was called a Safe Word and I’m in love with it.
