yes i’m so happy she’s continuing to get coverage
Q:My book starts with the line "The only people who think race is an artificial construct are anthropology adjuncts whom have never been mugged." The mugging line bugs me, but I want to attack academics who propose that race doesn't exist in their weird ivory castle.
Uh, that’s because it’s racist as shit. Try “anthropology adjuncts who’ve never been murdered by the police for no reason.”
Anthropologists argue that race is a social construct as opposed to a biological fact. Just because it’s a construct, that doesn’t mean that race and racism don’t exist. Basically the argument is that race has no biological basis and so arguments based on those grounds are invalid. Anthropologists are very much aware that race and racism exist and have very real effects for people every single day and they spend a great deal of time and effort understanding these effects and the ways in which they have long-lasting consequences for both individuals and populations, as well as the ways they intersect with things like class and gender. They also strive to understand why these things persist and how to move toward equality. Just putting that out there.

if there’s one thing i’ve learned from following football players and clubs on instagram, it’s that male footie fans are eager to give female fans shit for thinking players are hot, but spend an awful lot of time discussing players’ haircuts
