    I grew up reading a generation of American and English people like [Saul] Bellow, [John] Updike or [Martin] Amis. Everybody’s neutral unless they’re black — then you hear about it: the black man, the black woman, the black person. Of course, if you happen to be black the world doesn’t look that way to you. I just wanted to try and create perhaps a sense of alienation and otherness in this person, the white reader, to remind them that they are not neutral to other people.

    Anonymous asked: Why is John Lennon bad

    rip-homegirl:

    Master Post on Why John Lennon is Shit

    So here’s a master post of John Lennon’s shittiness. I added much more info about cultural appropriation in his music. I also submitted this to Your Fave is Problematic

    Sexism/abuse

    Homophobia and antisemitism

    Racism

    Ableism

    Harassment/bullying/acts of violence

    • Committed various humiliating/violent actstoward strangers and friends: threw knives at people in the audience at concerts, being a violent drunk and getting in fights with friends, etc.; also dubbed Germans at a concert “Nazis” and “Hitlerites”
    • he may have beenresponsible for the death of former bandmate Stuart Sutcliffe, on top of more heinous behavior, including urinating on nuns
    • Edit:there are tons of conflicting accounts of Stuart Sutcliffe’s
      death. There’sthis accountfrom Sutfliffe’s sister that Lennon beat Sutcliffe savagely after learning he was leaving the group—which may or may not have lead to death by complications later (but she alsoclaimsthe beating didn’t lead to his death, but it still did damage). There are other accounts whichclaim that thugs attacked Sutcliffe and gave him the injury or thatSutcliffe fell down a flight of stairs— there were even rumors of it being caused by amphetamine use or a tumor (those seem to be bogus)— we can’t know for sure what the true story is (but it’s not unthinkable that someone with Lennon’s history of abuse would do this)

    BEST POSTS OF 2013 #28: Select images from Moroccan photographer Hassan Hajjaj's portraiture series 'My Rock Stars: Volume 1’.

    Hassan pays homage to African studio photography, made iconic by the likes of Mali’s Malick Sidibe and Seydou Keita. He also references the decorative and colourful style of Cameroonian creative Samuel Fosso, all whilst celebrating some of the artists individual influences - from artists and musicians, to sports players and other everyday people.
