"I always thought that by the time I put out a third album, I would want to come back to natural hair and natural makeup," she told me. "I thought, I will shock the world again and just be more toned down. I thought that would be more shocking than to keep on doing exactly what they had already seen."

the idea of harry potter not only straddling two worlds between him (the british wizarding world and the british muggle world) but also being met at each end by two entirely different systems of historical dehumanization/subjugation (with harry on one hand being a half-blood in a society built on blood pedigree and on the other hand being black mixed-race in a society built on white supremacy) is at once extremely tragic and extremely compelling narratively

it’s also interesting that either status has a completely negligible effect within the opposite world (i.e. harry’s blood status means nothing in muggle britain and his race means nothing in wizarding britain)

mixed-race harry continues to rise to the top as the most narratively compelling interpretation of the text

"Daya is a hopeless romantic and she believes in love. That’s something that we share. She doesn’t hold grudges, she forgives very easily, and I think I do the same. When people see the character and then get to know me, they say ‘Oh, you’re so different’, but we are very similar in that way. Also, with her image, she has a little insecurity and a inner struggle that I’m working on currently."

Listen, I think one of the things that’s real strange, and I see it with my kids, is that they have entire networks of communications, and entire networks of joining up with each other and talking that I think elude folks like me and older. I mean I’m not on Tumblr every darn day, I’m not. I don’t have Instagram. I don’t get on any of these networks that my kids are on. There’s all this movement, and information that’s passing and that is slipping past what we would call the mainstream radar. And my kids, my students, they understand that there’s kinda two worlds; the official world where they’ll go work and the official world where they’ll talk to adults and in that official world folks don’t talk about race, folks don’t talk about rape, folks don’t acknowledge how much young people are doing, what they’re doing, folks don’t talk about how many gay folks are out there. And then… there’s the world they live on, the ground, where they’re seeing this stuff right up front. And I think a lot of what’s going on is that a lot of communities are becoming bilingual. Speaking real speak, and real speak is the stuff we acknowledge is happening. And speaking the official speak, and the official speak we don’t acknowledge any of this stuff. It’s code but it’s also negation, because part of what you’re seeing with the republican madness is, what they wanna do is put that story back. They wanna push it back, they wanna negate it, they wanna erase it. I think when you speak the official code, part of it is erasing. You want to not talk about this, not talk about that, let’s just talk about the old thing. And you if you talk about anything new Ima get real mad at you.
