First of all, the word “segregation” is a really loaded one in American history. If it’s not meant to be an allegory, then Rowling needs an American editor to tell her that she can’t throw the word around like this...

I almost hope it isn’t meant to be her attempt to tackle racial prejudice. Why? Because on one side you have wizards who are the one propagating the laws and on the other, people who are trying to kill them. The blame for the bad blood is a bit too evenly distributed to be a valid allegory.

that is hastily written outrage-fishing but the more harry potter tried to imagine an entire alternate universe instead of just a magic boarding school the more broken it became imo and i have zero confidence in its lens being applied interestingly to american history

. And at the risk of ending on a slightly cynical note, it is fair to wonder if here, too, Sharapova’s age and declining game conspired against her. Would tennis officials have been so quick to make an example of Sharapova if she were five years younger and at the pinnacle of her career?

"One of the effects of a lifetime spent playing video games—and I certainly count myself among the ranks of the people who have—is that you begin to see yourself as the level 1 hero in your own game." So says Ben Labe, a PhD candidate in economics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "And when you begin to perceive the world in this way, it's far easier to see when other people are playing the very same game, only they're using 'cheat codes,' 'God mode,' or some such thing. The tendency, as when playing poorly-designed games, is to get justifiably angry because circumstances are not fair, and to begin to support policies to remedy this."

Based on a game played on cell phones, the Angry Birds movie was almost destined to have a simplistic binary plot of good against evil. Racists who love the movie might want to consider what it says about their ideology that it needs to be validated by the most rudimentary narrative possible.

Why It Matters That Steph Curry’s On-Court Awesome Is Missing in NBA 2K16

https://modelviewculture.com/pieces/why-it-matters-that-steph-currys-on-court-awesome-is-missing-in-nba-2k16

In an environment where we’re reminded of the ways in which surveillance mediates many of our interactions, this an important moment of navigation or, returning to Browne, it’s a moment where the watched is looking back. It’s my argument that, in a social environment where the movement of black people is produced through constant surveillance, Curry’s inability to be accurately transformed into a digital version is a powerful critique.

If there were an idiom that expressed not so much a mind exploding as a mind slowly deflating and leaking air, that's what I'd use to describe my reaction to that.

How the magic of Netflix's 'Stranger Things' can help explain the rise of Donald Trump

But perhaps a sizable portion of the country doesn’t want to move forward, and that's why Trump got nominated. They want to go back to a past they remember fondly.

And it's that glowing view of the older days that provides the magic in "Stranger Things"— the callback to a more simple time.

hahahaha wow.
