People who act like it’s a POCs responsibility to be cordial and composed when interacting with racists instead of it being a person’s responsibility to not be a fucking shit-stain racist baffle me
No no no! POCs should! Because manipulation!
How shitty does it look if someone’s racist to the nicest person in the world?

…there are tons of rape apologists, but you can’t disapprove of someone’s work because of their beliefs. This sounds odd, but belief and speech are not really actions. Proclamation is, but speech is not.
Here’s why I say this: Orson Scott Card is a homophobe. Openly. He’s kind of a cunt about it, too. That doesn’t mean that I won’t purchase his literature on the creation of characters and viewpoints; he’s one of the most impressive world-builders alive today.

In one of my classes, we read Zachary Schomburg’s Fjords, Vol. 1, which has a lot of weirdness and warmth and excellence and refrigerators. With that as a benchmark expectation, it’s no surprise that Schomburg’s The Book of Joshua delivers and builds on his unique flavor of ordinary weirdness.
Weirdest read, but totally worth it.
