I'm revisiting this graf from Kevin Quashie's "Black Aliveness, Or A Poetics Of Being" in an attempt to digest why the loss of so many artists we admire, at a time of continued, unprecedented loss, feels like a wound. "Can I say again how alive your being alive makes me feel!?!"

Testing hasn’t “slowed”—it’s become nearly impossible in hard-hit areas and/or financially burdensome and/or unreliable and/or too time-consuming to seek out. The failings are many and this number is a national tragedy. https://t.co/1YXweJwRDJ

I said what I said (and what other have said before me): Black carnality in TV and film won’t ever be the same after Insecure.

This might sound silly but seeing the Jorts Webb Space Telescope launch this morning is the closest I’ve felt to anything resembling holiday cheer. Thank you telescope Denzel.

Listen, I’m setting my alarm for 4 a.m. to stream this telescope launch because it is genuinely one of THE most exciting things to happen in my lifetime. https://t.co/sViDnKdPzp

Still sitting with the reality that our options were fascism or a government we could occasionally shame into not killing some of us. https://t.co/liaEnAh9ep

Generally doing my best not to scream every time I remember how colossally the US dropped the ball on its messaging around masks.

This is “Teslament.” It’s a glimpse into our dystopian future present. It’s what @OJeyifous and I imagine as one of the corporate responses to “charging deserts” mentioned in this article. https://t.co/fExVetzkWd

21 months into the pandemic and we still don't have easily accessible testing, not even in places like Oakland, CA where virtually all elected officials, at the state and local level, say they realize how serious the pandemic is - https://t.co/ipPHuZSmuO

This was the year I received the @bookcritics Nona Balakian citation for excellence in reviewing, something I never dared to believe would happen ever, which meant I got to write about how the world has always been ending for somebody. https://t.co/cefzIc6p4f

The world over, asylum seekers are being met with violence as they try to seek protection. Here’s my latest, from Greece (& Cuba & Turkey) - it’s a heartbreaking story that lays bare the lengths governments will go in their attempts to stop migration. https://t.co/49gbKYnsDl

[Thread] For decades, I've been reading Babasaheb Ambedkar alongside Frantz Fanon, trying to work out the mechanism to break down the wretchedness of caste & race. Now, at @LeftwordBooks blog, please find my 3-part series on Babasaheb, Fanon, EMS, & the blocked Indian revolution.
