so i was live tweeting through the oscars, if you follow me, i’ll follow you. i’m @r_str_. the social network got wholesale dissed. the kings speech came the fuck up. fav moments: nyu shout out, gwen paltrow working real hard to sing, j. hudson rocking her new body, oprah appearance, halle berry channeling lena horne because of course horne was a mentor to her life, and the earnest love that was shown to family and friends. awwww.
many people were tweeting about the solid whiteness of the event. an extraordinary example of how the era of a black president is also an era of white domination in a culture war that is unending, and unrelenting. thankfully, relentless is the talent of the culture warriors that fight, we will always be heard by the ages. always and only.
