Shout out to Will Bloom.
Hi Will. Django was racist, fool.
Do you think the rich white man is capable of truly understanding white privilege/institutional racism? Will they ever understand their violent history and how it has shaped their life and beliefs today? Answer: If they want to study racism like any other historical subject.

What's In A Picture
While I think Svitek’s article was both slightly irresponsible and racist I don’t really see anything objectionable in that picture of Kellyn? Is portrayal of someone gesturing a form of dog-whistle politics I’m currently unaware of? The man looks justifiably angry as he has every right to be in this scenario. The picture may be unflattering to his good looks but not to his point and the matter...

The Words of Northwestern's Dean of Women
“Alien illiterates … rule our cities today; the saloon is their palace, and the toddy stick their sceptre. It is not fair that they should vote, nor is it fair that a plantation Negro, who can neither read nor write, whose ideas are bounded by the fence of his own field and the price of his own mule, should be entrusted with the ballot … The colored race multiplies like the...

What does it mean to have buildings named after people like this? Dear Navajo Nation (not the real one of course), John Evans was a founding member of this fine institution (and University of Denver). John Evans Alumni Center is named after him, so is Evanston, Il, Evans, CO, and Mt. Evans, CO. John Evans used more than $30,000 (equal to a sum between 750,000 and a 1,000,000) to help the...
