“I never change, I simply become more myself.”
— Joyce Carol Oates
1 note · View note
We citizens have become fearful of our cops, but we admire them, too. Even those of us who are middle-aged—and older—wish to think that cops are Authority, our respected elders. We think that, if we admire them sufficiently, and make public our admiration, they will look kindly upon us. They won’t harass us, or injure us. They won’t force our cars off the Turnpike during their one-hundred-mile-per-hour pursuits of teenage car thieves from Newark and they won’t riddle our bodies with bullets in “cross fire”. If we’re polite with them, smiling and cowering. If we know the right words. If we’re the right people. If we’re the right color, neither black nor brown, not “light-skinned” anything.
———
Our mayors of cities and suburbs alike “extol” their cops. Caucasian juries routinely acquit cops charged with brutal racist acts, including murder; mostly, Caucasian grand juries refuse to indict them. Necessary force is the reason. Politicians are terrified of getting on the wrong side of the cops. All know how devastating a police strike could be . . . It isn’t just that an army of cops might go on strike, which is a passive act; they might strike out at us—they have the weapons, the armored vehicles, and the expertise. They have the zest for hurt, uncultivated in the rest of us.
— from In *COPLAND* by Joyce Carol Oates

La tragedia de una familia norteamericana... y de una traducción
La tragedia de una familia norteamericana… y de una traducción
Por Irma Gallo Leí por primera vez a Joyce Carol Oates (1938, Lockport, New York) en 2015. Empecé con La hija del sepulturero, cuando iba a entrevistarla en el Festival de Escritores de San Miguel de Allende, a principios de 2016. Me atrapó su manera de narrar la sordidez y la violencia en el Estados Unidos rural de principios del siglo XX, y la resiliencia de su protagonista, una mujer llamada…

Writing Tip #240
There are two kinds of reading: spontaneous and systematic. Spontaneous reading is when you unexpectedly discover a book and are drawn into the world. Systematic is when you decide exactly what you are going to read. For example, if you decide you are going to read all of Hemingway’s short stories. Both types are important for becoming a better writer. Both will teach you things.

a quick reminder that joyce carol oates fucking sucks, like, as a person, with explanations (i did my best to include alt text but there's a character limit so i tried to summarize some, sorry!):
Tumblr media
the implication here is that people in china eat cats as food, which is blatantly racist and based upon stereotypes
Tumblr media
no, all murders are not hate crimes. hate crimes are directed towards a specific marginalized group, and in the case of the atlanta shooting, this is absolutely a hate crime.
Tumblr media
as an autistic person, i am empathetic to the point where i cried so often as a child if i even suspected someone else was hurt. this is ableist and blatantly wrong. we aren't a tool for your fake deep tweets.
Tumblr media
maybe actually support people who are frustrated and hurting about the police's collective gaslighting of the american populace instead of going "well not all white people!" it's enough white people, joyce, and i don't know who made you part of this conversation.
Tumblr media
or maybe you could talk about racism without using slurs! and actually, better idea: let the people who have experienced racism in their lives quote the slurs in their own writing as a way of reclaiming their own pain.
anyway, as a conclusion, i'm sure if you dig through her twitter you could find more of this fake deep shit that's really just harmful to the groups she claims to represent and protect through her writing. please stop adding her stories to "women writers!!" lists and please stop supporting her.

Your 20's are your 'selfish' years. Its a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, give yourself love, and never touch the ground.
