Someone on Twitter asked me at the Ask Orange event last week what my favorite thing is about Poussey, and I said “her smile.” Because, although a lot of people talk about how the show is a mix between comedy and drama, being in prison is not necessarily funny. It’s not a funny situation. But there can be people in prison who are naturally funny people, and people that you would enjoy spending time with, enjoy sharing a meal with. Although throughout the season you see that Poussey is frustrated by her incarceration, she has four more years to do there, so it’s not like she can so much see her end date. So I think, in contrast to some of the other characters, she really has to make prison her home, and has to make it livable there. I really enjoyed finding the joy within the fucked up-ness of it. —Samira Wiley

Having an anxiety disorder is like that moment where your chair almost tips or you miss a step going down the stairs but it never stops
THIS IS THE ONLY DESCRIPTION OF ANXIETY I HAVE EVER IDENTIFIED WITH
THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE
BUT HOURS- SOMETIMES DAYS- LONG
or that feeling that you are falling and wake up but can’t shake off your heart racing
NON-BINARY CHARACTER WITH “THEY” PRONOUNS ON WTNV. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
I was at Starbucks getting my pumpkin spice fix when I hear “excuse me but I really like your AoS shirt” and I turn around to say thank you when CLARK GREGG
"Excuse me but I really like your AoS shirt."
You amazing, adorable man. Don’t ever change.
I LOVE YOU
Let me tell you a story about Clark Gregg. He was at Comicpalooza this past summer with the Agents of Shield cast, but he was only there on the Saturday due to his crazy scheduling commitments. So, I stood in line for hours that day to meet him along with hundreds of other Marvel fans. I don’t normally do the whole standing in line for hours to meet one person, because you end up missing a lot of other awesome stuff and it’s almost always disappointing, so this was a big deal for me.
You know when you’re anxiously waiting to talk to a celebrity and you’re finally there looking at them face-to-face, but they keep their head down and get weirdly formal and brisk so they can get to everybody waiting in line? Yeah, that was not what Clark Gregg was like. He was polite and charming, made eye contact with every single person there, and would have easily carried on a full conversation with everyone had his schedule not been so packed that day. I left the hall with a huge grin on my face and a signed AoS poster to frame.
To top it all off, I ran into him again a little while later! I was sitting in a hallway upstairs about an hour later waiting for another panel, when he walks by me with two bodyguards. Next to me on the floor are some purchases, including the AoS poster sticking out from under the pile. As he walks by, he sees the poster, stops in front of me, and asks if I’d like him to sign it for me. I sheepishly tell him he already did but thank you. He just laughs and rushes off to his next panel. Seriously, one of nicest people I’ve ever met (celebrity or not).
What Happens When Businesses Use Black Tragedies To Sell Products
- FCKH8 creates a super sarcastic and oddly cheery video “Hey White People: A Kinda Awkward Note to America by #Ferguson Kids,” to sell “racism’s not over but I’m over racism” shirts and claims $5 from each shirt is going to anti-racism charities. The t-shirt slogan is highly suspect and does nothing to support anti-racism but…yeah. Ok.
- Colorlines does a post saying "ummmm there’s something sketchy about using cute black kids from Ferguson to sell t-shirts and this doesn’t really address any issues"
- After FCKH8 lists Race Forward (Colorline’s publisher) as one of the organizations set to receive a portion of the shirt profits, Race Forward releases a statement on Facebook that basically says “we don’t know these people, they haven’t given us any money and we’re not ok with them using our name to sell t-shirts”
- Mike Kon from FCKH8 posts a super passive aggressive comment on the Race Forward Facebook page, and another on the Colorlines article which essentially say, “we just wanted to use a national tragedy to sell some shirts and make a viral video. we didn’t know that we actually had to care about racism or address issues in order for people to be satisfied. don’t you dare critique my allyship or we’ll just take it elsewhere”
