So the subplot of Holes is that Kate Barlow deals with the politically-sanctioned execution of her black boyfriend—who unlawfully kissed a white woman who was in love with him!!!—by becoming a serial killer who targets racist/sexist white dudes who harassed her, were rejected, then went after her boyfriend as revenge from the depths of the “friend zone”.
Go off Louis Sachar, let em know!
I promised my mom I wouldn’t get anymore tattoos on my legs but God has other plans for me.
fuckbouteverything said: Hey so I'm thinking about applying to MICA for college and I was just wondering if you could honestly tell me how it is? The websites and brochures just make everything so rosey so I was hoping I could get a students honest opinion?
art school is crazy and you’ll probably cry a lot but it teaches you a lot about yourself. If you can afford to go, you should go. Freshman year is the hardest, so just be prepared to work really hard and be judged by everyone and have a lot of break downs. It gets easier after that and I’m glad I had the experience and the opportunity to go. Your art practice will definitely improve and you’ll definitely learn a lot, just be prepared to be constantly under pressure and surrounded by people that are mean and so similar to you that you’ll hate them.
I don’t wanna hijack this post but every time I hear people praise MICA I wonder why I feel like I’m the only one who hated it in a lot of ways and real talk—one of the biggest issues with MICA that me and my fam experienced was straight up racist teachers and administration and that ish was not fun. My sister (who also went there) had THREE different teachers use the n word in classroom settings and couldn’t get anyone to reprimand them. The way that they handle the fact that their campus is surrounded by inner city is always borderline racist and is basically them telling freshman to be wary of black people and black neighborhoods. And so much of the freshman art is suburban white kids living in a city for the first time taking photos of homeless people and calling everything “ghetto” and “hood”. Like, excuse you?? There’s no getting around that any given art school is going to be predominantly white but for real, having grown up in Baltimore the majority of the out-and-out racism I have experienced in my life was at MICA. Even though there were a lot of things I liked about it I’m kind of like “nah” about the whole experience and never wanna recommend it to brown folks.
Why does everyone act like taking selfies is a new thing as if myspace never happened
Honestly I feel like these kids are disrespecting their elders by not calling their camera-in-frame self-portraits “myspace pics”. Don’t forget where you came from young blood.
