i wanna feel how dogs feel when you let them go in a big field
Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.
ALL OF THIS
I don’t know if anyone else remembers this, but Barnie got her first cap for the USWNT coming on as a sub field player. After switching jerseys with Joy Fawcett, no less.
ETA: It was the 2004 post-Olympic victory tour. At one game there were too many injuries/unavailable players to have enough subs, so when Hucles rolled her ankle it was Barnie to the rescue! And they did try so hard to get her a goal, unfortunately to no avail. IIRC, Barnie got to keep the jersey.
Obama don’t fail me now
