Tochi Onyebuchi explains how his new book Riot Baby is an act of liberation where black rage, black anger, and feelings of just revenge for injustice are acts of liberation against the White Gaze.
He also reflects on science fiction, the burdens of representation and why imagining black people with superpowers is so important in a world where the lives of black people are devalued by dominant American society.
Tochi also offers his thoughts on why the HBO series Watchmen is such a powerful meditation on white supremacy and black pain.
Chauncey DeVega continues to call out the “hope peddlers” and other fools who actually believed that there was a “rebellion” in the Department of Justice and by consigliere courtesan Attorney General William Barr against his master King Trump. Chauncey also explains why the real winner of the last Democratic Party primary debate was not Elizabeth Warren – but actually Donald Trump.
And Chauncey DeVega shares a Valentine’s Day public ode and love letter by a right-wing propagandist to his beloved cult leader King Trump.
