An academic's opinions on feminism, politics, literature, philosophy, teaching, academia, and a lot more.


A neighbor just shared the following insight with me: Governor Rauner will sign the bill raising the state’s minimum wage because he’s afraid that if he doesn’t, the black people in Cook County (“and there are SO many of them and they are very criminal”) will murder him. 

Before you jump to the conclusion that this comes from some poor redneck, this person’s house is 3 times as big as mine and her profession has to do with art. I mean, serious, real art.

    The worst thing here is that Rauner doesn’t believe that. 🙂

    Racist and dumb, what a winning combo! She doesn’t have kids around Klara’s age does she?


  3. It’s too bad he doesn’t, but many people like your neighbor do fear a slave uprising, or its equivalent, at any time. The night Obama was elected rich people thought they were going to have their neighborhoods invaded by torch-bearing negros.


  4. That expression in quotation marks, is it a quotation?
