My Inherent Racial Prejudices

An illuminating study of the acting of Rege Jean Page On two occasions recently, I’ve written glowing accounts of the mixed-race actor, Rege Jean Page.

I provided a description of RJP as a superb example of subversive behavior in the role of Bridgerton’s Duke of Hastings. By subversive activity I refer to behavior which under...

17 Filme, die auf wahren Geschichten basieren & sehenswert sind

Andere zeigen, wie einzigartig das Leben gewöhnlicher Me...

Ich trat mit meinem Bully aus Schulzeiten in Kontakt. Das ist dabei rausgekommen.

Wir schrieben das Jahr 2010 und Rihannas Musik war der Soundtrack dazu. Ich war 16 und für mich begann gerade ein neues Kapitel in meinem Leben. Während dieser Sekundarschulzeit wurde ich gnadenlos gehänselt, weil ich der Meinung der anderen Kinder nach unnötig „lange Wörter“ benutzte. Rückblickend ist mir klar, dass es sich dabei um Mobbing handelte. Ich war nur deshalb von Büchern besessen, weil meine Lieblingsromane es mir ermöglichten, der Realität eine Zeit lang zu entkommen. In den Som...

"'Teaching,' for figures of her calibre, is often a word that means giving scripted lectures and then fleeing into the wings, or charging mega-dollars for a sun-drenched guru experience at a resort."

This is part of why so many people seemed to feel that their own lives had somehow been recognized by the announcement of the Nobel. When I was growing up in Vermont, a few mountains over from her, Glück’s work was everywhere; she still feels to me like a seventies f...
