Here’s Hari Kondabolu on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell in a segment he refers to in his recent interview on Fresh Air. 

Kondabolu comments on the National Spelling Bee, or as he likes to call it, “the Indian Super Bowl.”

John Edmonds

I am absolutely, completely, utterly obsessed with John Edmond’s work and I think you should be too. Edmonds says that his work is currently concerned with examining the “the external and internal violence that is implicated through the bodies of men on the margins of society.”

Hurrah for images that portray the black male body in a manner that isn’t either threatening or hypersexual.

#yes yes yes 

my ex-friend from high school posted her engagement announcement in today’s paper, and i feel really weird about it.  to make it worse, the wedding date is a week after my birthday.  my stomach feels like it’s being squeezed like a baseball in a glove, made even worse by the fact that she probably picked that day and never thought about me once.  i really loved her, man.  i really, really did, but sometimes that just isn’t enough.

So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look at all that happy.

this is still my favourite thing on the internet

I still love this

Three years later, my body looks exactly how I pictured it to look when I was younger. It has been a fun journey, so far. Here’s to many more years of growth as a human.

"[F]or the first several years the SAT was offered, males scored higher than females on the Math section but females achieved higher scores on the Verbal section. ETS policy-makers determined that the Verbal test needed to be “balanced” more in favor of males, and added questions pertaining to politics, business and sports to the Verbal portion. Since that time, males have outscored females on both the Math and Verbal sections. Dwyer notes that no similar effort has been made to “balance” the Math section, and concludes that, “It could be done, but it has not been, and I believe that probably an unconscious form of sexism underlies this pattern. When females show the superior performance, ‘balancing’ is required; when males show the superior performance, no adjustments are necessary.” "

And then people urge me everything is fine, of course it is, when you’re ignoring statistics that is.

Fun fact: SAT tests predict college performance pretty well for men, but they strongly underpredict college performance for women. http://spp.sagepub.com/content/early/2012/12/20/1948550612469038.abstract

So I’m going to need everyone that’s filling the ‘Faking It' tag with hate to watch this interview with the cast and if you still want to burn the show to the ground I have nothing else to say to you, and I’ll keep on blockin’. They explicitly address the concerns you’re all talking about and tell you what they want the show to accomplish. They also address the stereotypes. Ugh just watch it and feel more guilty if you continue to hate yeah. 

I’m also 100% convinced that most of the people who are so offended by the series haven’t actually watched the pilot.

I’m very excited for this show.
